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.”

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.

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.
