16 Boomer Lifestyle Innovations

From Boomer Street Style Platforms to Empty Nester Career Sites

— August 19, 2016 — Life-Stages
These boomer lifestyle innovations range from mature street style platforms to empty nester job-finding websites. Made up of individuals ranging from 51 to 69 years of age, the Boomer demographic is more adventurous than aging populations of the past and is constantly reinventing its image and perceptions.

Growing older during the technological revolution, the age group is responding to new devices and software updates with specialized workshops and seminars that are designed to improve their understanding of technology which can at times seem overwhelming.

These boomer lifestyle innovations also include niche dating platforms that cater to a mature clientele along with travel communities that specifically cater to women over 50. Additional standouts include media examples like progressive boomer publications, elderly fashion editorials and even style blogs that contradict negative stereotypes associated with aging.
