As we age, there is a consensus that we all start to dress down. Things like sweatpants, sweatshirts, geriatric sneakers, and the like become common because comfort becomes so important that looking stylish gets thrown out the window.
But for women over 50, looking fashionable does not have to be difficult or uncomfortable. There are a number of ways to look stunning and stylish each time you leave the house and will make you look all the more vibrant and younger, too.
Here are a few pieces of advice for women looking to remain fashionable once they’ve passed the half-century mark.
Oldies but Goodies
In fashion, there is always an eye towards what’s new and great, but the fact of the matter is that there are styles that will never fade away. Things like a white blazer, black sweater, a cream blouse; these things are constantly in fashion for women over 50 and always look good when they fit you properly.
Again, dressing up does not have to be this big and taxing endeavor. Throw on a white blazer. Maybe add a black sweater to your ensemble. These pieces can tie a look together with minimal effort and have you feeling all the better about yourself whenever you need to go out.
Find the Right Accessory
Bags in general are a wonderful accessory to have when you’re older. There are plenty of women who opt for one end of the spectrum or the other in terms of size but finding one that serves both a functional purpose that doesn’t look ridiculous can accentuate any outfit and give a pop as well.
Accessories can also draw eyes away from less flattering areas and mitigate areas that you are not as happy with. Purses and bags serve more of a purpose than just carrying things; they are a wonderful accessory to your outfit as well.
Color Can Be Your Friend
As we age, it seemingly becomes second nature to wear a lot of muted colors. Things like blacks and greys and beiges become commonplace. And while those are fine and ell some of the time, a nice pop of color in your outfit can not only mix things up but draw attention to your outfit.
Finding that right pop of color can make an outfit come alive so long as it is not immature or obnoxious. Stand out, but in a good way.
