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?)
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.
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???

Whether you’re getting ready for a day in the office or a night on the town, Venus has you covered.
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?
Beth Djalali celebrated her third blogiversary in March 2017. She has an ever increasing following, perhaps due to her down to earth, practical style. Beth encourages others to find their own personal style – that confident feeling that adds the perfect accent to whatever you wear. She has been a style blogger for Chicos, was photographed wearing their clothes and interviewed about her style.
Jumpsuits are garments where high fashion meets ultimate comfort. Tailored jumpsuits are a perfect office look while dressy jumpsuits can be as glamorous as the fabled little black cocktail dress.

VENUS also carries a wide range of one-piece rompers in a variety of paisley, leopard and floral prints.
