”There’s a huge market,” ‘It’s not like these women grew older, turned a corner and forgot about looking stylish. They didn’t develop amnesia at 40.” (Rozhon, 2004)

So why target Gen Xers you might ask, well “Gen Xers have been reported to spend as much as one-third more each year than their millennial counterparts and don’t find purchasing luxury products to be a serious stretch. They have money to spend, and are looking for a special product that also delivers incredible quality” (Miller,2020). Many brands have focused on this idea of selling to younger generations “through social media marketing and ‘cool girl’ messaging, and most of all, a product aesthetic and quality that misses the mark” (Miller, 2020). Mature women want chic, high quality products, which feel special but functional, that fit into their busy lifestyle. Added to this, the majority of women over 40 feel excluded or represented by the fashion marketing they see on social media platforms. Furthermore, “older women are frustrated that recurrent trends are nearly all aimed at young bodies and that the high street aren’t taking into account the physical changes which naturally occur to the female physique as women age” (Townsend, 2015). This emphasises the idea that brands and designers have majorly forgotten them in favour of providing clothes for the younger generations. The Gen X market has untapped potential with “more than 12 million women aged over 45 and they represent vast economic potential to the industry. But many of them simply cannot find fashionable clothes that fit or are stylish” (Townsend, 2015).
