This whole thing makes me cringe. Wear what you want! Your old enough to know what You like. So what if I have crapey skin. It shows I've lived. I'm not going to cover up my age because it makes the young people uncomfortable. It's where we are all headed. Might as well get comfortable with it. Maybe we should learn to focus on the things that matter, like how we treat each other and stop shaming people about their appearance.
Can women's fashion over fifty be fabulous? Most definitely. The fashion arena for mature women that once included muumuu dresses and ugly grandma sweaters is fortunately long gone! Today's mature woman feels, thinks, and looks younger than her age. She seeks out fashion-forward clothes that allow her to portray a confident, youthful, and vibrant image.
Beth Djalali celebrated her third blogiversary in March 2017. She has an ever increasing following, perhaps due to her down to earth, practical style. Beth encourages others to find their own personal style – that confident feeling that adds the perfect accent to whatever you wear. She has been a style blogger for Chicos, was photographed wearing their clothes and interviewed about her style. 

I feel that less is more, I do not agree with bold prints, I leave that type of print to a wonderful scarf.

Easy on the makeup, natural grey hair, Find your style and live it !

Just as yellow reigned supreme on the autumn/winter catwalks, another bright colour was prevalent for the new season with designers across the cities injecting tangerine orange into their collections. Seen in ballgown form at Valentino and Emilia Wickstead, in day dresses at Stella McCartney and Rejina Pyo and in separates at Prada and Ferretti, there is no bolder way to brighten up your SS20 wardrobe.
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.
Whether we like it or not there are situations and places that require a certain way of dressing. Although this site is directing the issue toward mature women, I often see younger women who dress shabbily, inappropriately, and too provocatively. Some people in the name of freedom of style proclaim that a person should be able to wear whatever they like, wherever they like. But this is not only an irresponsible attitude, but also wishful thinking.
No list of top fashion blogs for women over 50 would be complete without mentioning Jennifer Connolly, a California-based Certified Image Consultant who initially started blogging to complement her work. While fashion blogs for mature women were fairly rare when she started five years ago, now the field is burgeoning, she says. “We’re the new fashion magazine for women our age,” Connolly says. “I started my blog to assist women online with free advice that I was charging my real life clients. There’s nothing out there in print for our age. It’s logical for it to end up on the internet.”
It seems that next summer is going to be all about showing off your pins with plenty of designers sending the tiniest of shorts down the catwalk. While Chanel paired jersey hotpants with tights, Etro gave the trend an officewear spin, Saint Laurent and Brandon Maxwell betted on leather and Isabel Marant, Ferretti and Givenchy made a case for the denim cut-off comeback.
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!

While these eight style makers are by no means the only older women who can teach us a thing or two about style (hello, Iris Apfel), following along in their fashion journeys has taught us a thing or two about our own fashion inclinations. Just take one peek at these eight awesome trendsetters, and you'll see what we mean. Read on for a look at eight inspiring real women and then shop pieces for women of every age.


Who says that your fashion game needs to leave the field when you are nearing or in your 50s? I mean, have you seen Salma Hayek, Sandra Bullock, Halle Berry, and Sarah Jessica Parker? I could go on for days on end! Women age gracefully, and like wine, they only get better with time. Sure, a pair of distressed jeans isn’t quite exciting, but who says looking stylish, fashionable, or “cool” means donning ripped clothes? Let’s toss our apprehensions out for a minute and take a fresh look at fashion, as well as at some fifty-something women who are a fashion inspiration to old and young women alike. Shall we? We have here outfit ideas, tips, and bloggers you can follow for some much-needed fashion for women over 50. Let’s go.
Feel sexy without revealing too much: No matter how old you are, a grown woman will always want to be able to feel sexy in her clothes when the occasion calls for it. Highlight your best feature—whether that's your chest, legs, arms or shoulders—and leave the rest a mystery. Showing too much skin as a mature woman will have the opposite effect you might intend, and make you appear out-of-touch and older than you are! 
When you were four, you dressed like a four-year-old. When you were twenty, you dressed like a twenty-year-old. And now that you are over 50, explore the selection of beautiful casual and elegant clothes available for this age group. Cultivate a style that makes you look attractive, comfortable, and chic. Be a role model for the younger generation. Let them see how a mature and confident woman should present herself. You'll look and feel so much better.
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:
Every true fashionista knows that the real clothing magic takes place when you bring in the accessories. Strategically placed, a belt can help you change the contour of a dress or slouchy top; cinch it around the waist to achieve a perfect hourglass look or well above your waist to accentuate your bust and lengthen your legs. Try a brightly colored belt that contrasts with the hue of your other clothing, and then pick up that shade in a matching handbag or hat. VENUS also carries a line of unique fashion jewelry, including earrings, chokers and bracelets, which will help you finish off your look.
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.

After working in Marketing and Business Development for a few years, Pratima Ati jumped ship to pursue two things she loved – fashion and writing. She’s now a full-time Fashion & Lifestyle writer and has never looked back ever since. She sleeps early, reads often, and when she can't, she finally gives a closure to all the characters living in her drafts. Sometimes, they pass off as poetry too! That, and her training in Indian classical music and playing (learning) the veena keep her sane, civil, and bearable.
