You may not have thought of this until day three of your retirement, but a change in lifestyle usually means a change in wardrobe. Even if you didn’t wear a suit to work, whatever you did wear may not be the most comfortable option for reading, fitness, yard work and romping around with the grandchildren.
While you no longer have to dress to impress at work, bear in mind that perception is still important in the real world. You don’t want to be perceived as really old or as trying to act too young. Dress your age with a focus on comfort, fit and quality materials.
If you start a regular exercise regimen in retirement, you may even lose weight — so don’t go out and buy too much at first. But do consider buying some good-quality, comfortable workout clothes that reflect your style.
