A lot of women over 50 and sometimes 40 too find shopping to be a daunting experience because nothing seems to fit, not in the size sense but holistically. Contrary to this popular notion, the fashion industry is highly volatile and is proliferating, with all big names changing strategy to make clothes targeting all age groups alike, reassuring us that age is, after all, just a number. So there hasn’t been a better time than now to explore everything there is for you. Just remember to wear your confidence up your sleeve, no matter what. If you have any more questions, drop it in right here in the comment section. Take care!

Seems counterintuitive for a woman to put so many restrictions on other women and claim they are being supportive and helpful. Wearing the “right” clothing is about us learning what looks good on our particular bodies (that’s for all ages) not putting into place some social restrictive standard that will continue to put women in a box! Why are we still so bent on telling women what to do? Are we so jealous of the hot 50 year olds in bikinis that we have to use peer pressure tactics in order to compensate for our own insecurities? Come on women! We should be celebrating each other! Can I add, what the heck is wrong with florals???
Looking for a way to top off the perfect pair of jeans? Go bold with an artfully low-cut V-neck tee-shirt or an off-the-shoulder sweater. Tailored blouses can go from nice to naughty just by undoing a couple of buttons. VENUS has camo tops, nautical blouses and lumber jacket shirts that work nicely when you’re going for that tomboy look, plus strappy faux leather and eye-catching sequined creations when you want to put your girliest self forward.
I just turned 50, I wear a size 3, or 26", I am very active, run a horse breeding farm, burns a lot of calories. I love wearing short skirts, low tops, and heels, plus bikinis. My favorite jeans are by Miss Me. I have had a couple of plastic surgery procedures, most people guesstimate me to be 35-40. I feel 25. I am updating my wardrobe, adding some leather pieces, and nice sweaters, but I will dress young as long as I can!

You know how sometimes you just know things, but don’t realize that you do until someone mentions it out loud. That’s just the case with fashion too, and that’s why we always need tips from experts, fashionistas, and designers to validate what we know. But, often while reading about stuff, we realize how we miss tiny details and how other people have a different perspective to offer! Like they say, the devil is in the details. If you were wishing that it’d be nice to have a list that states it all out for you, we’ve got you covered. So, today, let’s take a look at 50 Fashion Tips that will come in handy for every girl – whether you are a college chica or a lady boss. Ready? Let’s do this.
Designers seemed to be turning to blues this season, but not in a moody way. At Molly Goddard, Stella McCartney and Boss, punchy bright blue shone through the collections in the form of tulle or pleated dresses and a pair of striking satin shorts stole the show at Staud. Prabal Gurung meanwhile created the ultimate bright blue power suit, while Preen's most talked-about design was that punchy tiered dress.
I started my channel in 2011 as a way to inspire other women to create a life they love! I’m a licensed hairstylist and makeup artist and have worked in the beauty industry my entire life. I currently work full time creating videos for this channel and my vlog channel. I got married in 2015 to my middle school sweetheart and had my first baby Julian in March 2018. I opened my online clothing store in 2018 called Good To Be where we sell trendy women’s clothing, accessories and our own merch line. I’m 26 years old and live in Michigan with my husband, our son and our cavalier King Charles named Colbie. We also recently bought a vacation home in Florida that we’re renovating.

The Prime Woman is also fashionable. She wants to dress for the body she has, and is discriminating in her taste. We created Prime Shop to cater to these women, our readers and subscribers. You can find fashion focused particularly on our ageless generation, like the all black pieces you need in your wardrobe, and the most flattering jeans for our figures. It appears some fashion designers are also recognizing the potential influence of mature women and that fashion over 50 is a market they can’t afford to ignore. Recently, during London Fashion Week, designer Simone Rocha featured a three generation cast in her catwalk. In New York, The Row included models in their 40s, as did Michael Kors. It’s no wonder so many smart women have taken up the over 50 fashion baton and created blogs that rival the popularity of the 20 and 30-something fashionistas.
Not to be completely shameless, but we do have to brag about our bloggers at PRiME who are passionate about fashion over 50. The publication began in 2014, and has been gathering a loyal following of fans ever since. Prime founder, Dorthy Miller Shore, with her classic style that is elegantly effortless has a collection of fashion over 50 posts including:
While the term borrowed from the boys is so passe in 2019, there is something decidedly last midcentury Savile Row about the vest. Whether included as part of a three-piece suit at Burberry and Etro, or mismatched with a jacket at Louis Vuitton, there’s something quite dapper and appealing—not to mention endlessly flattering—about the almighty waistcoat.
Whether you’re looking for jeans, capris or open leg pants, you’ll discover them at VENUS. Many of the pants options have sewn-in control panels that smooth and slim your tummy, thighs and derriere. Choose from comfy leggings, too, in a multitude of prints and styles. Skirts come in all lengths from mini to maxi. Comfortable cut-off, cuffed and Bermuda shorts make a great addition to any casual warm-weather wardrobe.

Much of the advice is okay, but in my opinion the need for advice is greater among younger women. Where I live, most women past 50 look far more stylish than many women in their twenties and thirties. And why do you say that "of course, our bikini days are over now"? I know women in their seventies and even eighties who still look great in a bikini.

Cathy was always fashionable and had a thing for style, however, after following 20-year old bloggers for a while, she took a step back and realized that something was not quite right. The newest trends weren’t perfectly matching her age, which prompted her to start ‘The Middle Page’ blog. She wanted to offer something for women of her age and tweak millennial trends accordingly.


Her blog about fashion over 50 was created specifically to help other women avoid the mistakes she made. “I thought other people might learn something from this,” she says. “You lose your way fashion-wise taking care of kids and aging parents. I thought maybe I could save people some steps if I shared what I learned.” Street describes her 50+ style as modern and feminine with “a little rocker edge. It’s a little bit more sophisticated than I wore most of my life,” she says.

We all know that we dress one way for the beach, another way for church, funerals, weddings, etc. One would hope that as a woman matures, so does her sense of style. Gracefully say good-bye to the micro minis you wore at 16, skimpy half tops and very low rise pants that expose your midriff, seductive plunging necklines and sausage tight clothing that desperately cling to the bygone days of your youth.

According to Dorrie Jacobson, Senior Style Bible was created to inspire a more modern approach to fashion. Dorrie is a retired Playboy Bunny, model, make-up artist and is considered an expert on aging with style. She is launching a lifestyle brand that celebrates older women. Dorrie is quoted as saying, “It’s important to have a signature style that is modern, fashionable and most importantly, still turns heads. My heart still skips a beat when I spy something I adore. If fashion has the power to do that, I’m happy to grow old, as long as I can do it looking great.”
