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:
And just like that disco’s not dead. The wide collar favored by the Studio 54 set made a surprise comeback on the spring 2020 runways. Modernized on coats, jackets, and button-downs at Lanvin, Ferragamo, JW Anderson, and beyond, the look is often shown with contrasting colors to make it really stand out. Because what’s the point of a super collar if you can’t really see it?
Whether you’re looking for jeans, capris or open leg pants, you’ll discover them at VENUS. Many of the pants options have sewn-in control panels that smooth and slim your tummy, thighs and derriere.

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.
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
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.
We all know that we dress one way for the beach, another way for church, funerals, weddings, etc. One would hope that as a woman matures, so does her sense of style. Gracefully say good-bye to the micro minis you wore at 16, skimpy half tops and very low rise pants that expose your midriff, seductive plunging necklines and sausage tight clothing that desperately cling to the bygone days of your youth.
From Dolce & Gabbana's jungle-inspired collection to Max Mara's army outfits and the numerous bulky, pocket-heavy jackets seen at Hermes, Stella McCartney, Jonathan Simkhai and Bottega, there was an injection of safari-inspired fashion across the collections, which you can channel in everything from shirts and shorts to jackets and belt bags for the season ahead.
What we won't deny is that finding inspiration when you're "of a certain age" can be difficult because fashion magazine spreads tend to ignore this demographic. However, celebrity dressing is a constant source of inspiring style for women of all ages, simply because our favorite stars are aging right along side us—like Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Helen Mirren and Viola Davis. (Can you believe she's 51?)
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.

She is known for being the rebel, and she is. Having an unusual career trajectory, Lyn Slater has broken all barriers and is known for her hashtag #ageisnotavailable. However, she doesn’t feel like she’s breaking barriers because she genuinely believes in dressing up for yourself and sheer pleasure, as opposed to dressing up according to your age or what people think you should dress like.

In 2019, we experienced a range of jarring moments on the world's main stage: the gilets jaunes protests on the Paris streets for economic justice, Extinction Rebellion marched for climate rights, Tristan Thompson got caught kissing Jordan Woods, the British Conservatives came back to power and Trump was impeached. And as we head into 2020, no more settled politically, socially and culturally, fashion has taken advantage of the disunity.
A very stupid and narcissistic action. Meghan and Harry didn't request to be named Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They belong by birth and marriage to the Royal family and Sussex belongs to the Royal Kingdom of Britain. What they might want to do is to vote themselves out of Britain. Otherwise they should keep quite and accept that, if it is not that extremely beautiful couple, some other members of the Royal household will be named for Sussex without their being consulted first and there is nothing they can do about it. Their opinion is not invited. So short up.
Before we share our selections for the top fashion blogs for women over 50, we think it appropriate to explain our mission. PrimeWomen.com was conceived as the response to a world of publications targeting women in their 20s and 30s -women just beginning their careers and finding their way in life, experimenting with fashion and trends. The ones to whom the fashion designers market shamelessly. At PRiME, we wanted to acknowledge and celebrate the fact those other publications seemed to conveniently overlook: The Prime Women generation spends $400 million more annually on consumer goods and services than any other generation. She is smart, successful and savvy. She has the financial stability to travel, invest, and be selective in her purchasing power.
