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.
Pack away those florals next spring because there is a new print in town. Polka dots were seen all over the catwalks, covering statement mini dresses at Richard Quinn, layered up at Max Mara, given a colourful spin at Erdem and worked into ladylike looks at Carolina Herrera and Michael Kors. Whether with your workwear or for a night out, polka dots are taking pride of place for the new season.
I am so happy to find this lens. I was just thinking about this very subject and just had a conversation with a friend about this. We are both way over 50 and have grandchildren. We were joking about how our grandmothers wore babushkas and housecoat styled dressed and looked liked grandma's. We were glad that they are a thing of the past. We were marveling at how so many of us grandmas look so much more modern and younger. I am bookmarking this and need some ideas for new clothes.....

Designers are digging in their luxury heels when it comes to the almighty dot—simply put, the trend shows no sign of slowing. The innovative duo that is Dries Van Noten and Christian Lacroix found a place for the polka dot on a maxi skirt-and-simple tank pairing, topped off with a head feather, while Balmain embraced volume for the enchanting print, and Wes Gordon at Carolina Herrera went fitted, '90s, and sheer for one of his takes on dots.

I agree with Catherine below. As a 51 year old, I like to wear what I want and that includes shopping at American Eagle Outfitter for jeans. I avoid low -waist jeans, but find they have a great variety of mid-rise to high-rise casual jeans at reasonable prices. I also own two pairs of Doc Martens shoes that I adore - one plain black and one floral - they are fun. Don't think it really matters - I say wear what you like and feel comfortable in. So what?

Crochet is getting a cool update come spring. Think ultra-feminine dresses, polished suiting, and eveningwear that feels modern with a special touch of Grandma’s handmade crochet. As the fashion industry looks for ways to become more sustainable, there’s something special about a “trend” that embraces a slow, handmade technique that can be passed down generation after generation—à la that treasured family heirloom that lasts forever.
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???

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!

Oh boy, do I ever need an over-50 makeover. I'm actually over 60 and still wearing things I had in my 20's. It's a good thing I spend most of my time in the wilds in clothing designed for adventure. But your hub has helped me decide to take a good look at my closet and switch out a few things. Sweaters! Yes! Love, love, sweaters. They hide a multitude of sins. lol
We'll spare you the groundbreaking florals this season and instead, look to '60s and '70s wallpaper for your print fix. Retro prints ruled the runways—bringing both major color and pattern to all the top collections. Serving up mod home decor realness, vintage wallpaper (and couch) prints were channeled in the form of suiting at Prada and Marc Jacobs. Christopher Kane opted for a more psychedelic wallpaper print in the form of spring dresses, while Etro and Alberta Ferretti delivered a more bohemian-print option.
