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.”
In the fast-paced fashion industry, it can often feel like there's a glaring lens always refocusing on what's youthful and new. But here at Who What Wear, we're inspired by women of every age, which is why we figured it was high time to give a few of our favorite over-50 trendsetters a little love. These bloggers and Instagram stars have carved their own niches by staying true to their unique senses of style and by mixing trends with styles they've kept in their arsenals over time.
At Torrid, we break all the rules by taking measurements on actual women, not mannequins, to create plus size fashion that's fit to perfection.

Last season found us in a sea of flowing tulle, indication that gala gowns were ready to hit the circuit beyond your basic black-tie affair. Expanding on that idea for spring 2020 are lovely and light tiered dresses that manage to offer volume, high drama, and maximum twirl-ability. Oscar de la Renta and Roksanda took the idea pretty in pink, while Preen, McQueen, and Dior went classic in black and white.
