I look forward to every issue of More, but I was very disappointed in the fashion you showed for the "In Your 60s" Sylebook section of the March issue. I will be turning 60 this next year and you made me dread reaching that decade. Although I wear a lot of black, the clothes you showed would make me look huge. I work out daily trying to keep my body as slim and youthful as possible. I do need to camouflage some parts of the body as everyone in any age has their particular body problems, but these clothes would make me feel OLD! The idea of placing flowers on a small pump looks like something an older woman held in their closest since their 20's and couldn't throw them out because they were their favorites. Stripes and large prints make me think of the little grey haired women that love dressing as their mother did. Although, I know I have to change my dress as I age, I don't believe you have to go from the more colorful, sleek fashions shown in the 50's to only black, large, out of date prints when you turn 60. Please give the women in their 60's more fashionable options!
I actually really loved the suggestions - but really - where is the COLOR for the women in their 60's??? ALL black & white??? Not even a colorful accessory???? I am in my 70's, love black & white, but also need some color in my life!!!!! I really like the Ann Taylor "Chanel" sweater jecket!
I've been a faithful reader of MORE magazine for about 5 years. In all that time I've never written a letter to the editor--but I had to write regarding your article on Connie Britton in the March issue.
There's no doubt Ms. Britton is beautiful, talented, and successful. Why, then, does MORE feel the need to include four sultry photos of her basically half dressed? The photos you selected look more appropriate for a men's magazine (where the readers are men!)
I'm not opposed to illustrating the beauty of any woman you choose to profile. But I am opposed to your decision to focus your photos exclusively on Ms. Britton's physical attributes in order to help convince me she's important and worth reading about.
What is that popular saying, less is more? In this case I need less of MORE. Please cancel my subscription.

Your magazine is very instructive. Most of us past 50 (I am 68) are happy that your magazine addresses the issues women of our age face. Many of us tend to laugh at the foibles that have younger women at a loss.
I ask you to think about the humor that is often lacking in our day-to-day lives because we are doing our best to bring food on the table and keep a roof over our heads. The economy is not our friend.
Just one cartoon would lift the weight of your magazine’s issue content and our spirits as well.
Thank you for considering this comment.
Hello Ms. Seymour.....As a subscriber to your magazine, I am usually delighted with each and every issue....however after reading your article..."Stylebook---What to Wear in Your 30's., 40's., 50's etc." I could no longer keep silent. I was indeed eager to read it as being 53, I have reached a stage were I question everything I wear. Usually I nag my 23 year old daughter for her opinion...."do I look too old in this? or Do I look inappropriately too young in this?.......Naturally, I immediately turned to your article., only to find that unless I win the lottery, I will basically be unable to dress for my age. I am a registered nurse working in a hospital with 2 children still in college and a husband who just lost his job after 30 years........who can afford the outfits you have suggested....Although they are lovely. , I was so dissappointed that it was not geared more to the average woman on a budget. If I took the advice stated....I would have no money left over for..say...food., shelter..etc...but I would indeed look fabulous for my age. Thanks for listening.......
