A sale should never be a cue to buy something. I mean, not never, but it should not always be (which is the case for most of us). If you have been waiting for a particular product to go on sale, sure, pick it up, but if it’s a random dress you want just because it is on discount, ask yourself if you’d buy it if it wasn’t on sale. You have your answer.
There are some trends that may be better suited to the younger set (crop tops come to mind), but don't be afraid to embrace new waves in style that get you excited. All you have to do is find a way to work that trend into your personal wardrobe. For example, you may want to try the pajama dressing look, but find that pairing a silk sleep top paired with cropped black trousers works better for you than a full matched set. (It's a lot of look.)
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!
I had ditched those heels from hell you mention, but I have a ball to go to, where I am doing a book signing appearance, so (shhhhhh, don't tell my feet!) I have just had to buy another pair. Sigh! You have some very elegant outfits here. I am playing safe for my book signing and wearing a very fitted black cocktail dress with a little frill just on the knee. Going for the simple but elegant look. Wish me luck!

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.
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.
