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
Just as yellow reigned supreme on the autumn/winter catwalks, another bright colour was prevalent for the new season with designers across the cities injecting tangerine orange into their collections. Seen in ballgown form at Valentino and Emilia Wickstead, in day dresses at Stella McCartney and Rejina Pyo and in separates at Prada and Ferretti, there is no bolder way to brighten up your SS20 wardrobe.

I feel that less is more, I do not agree with bold prints, I leave that type of print to a wonderful scarf. French women just seem to know how to dress , what to wear at any age, I am 78 , in great shape, choose to wear only the classics, quality fabrics, good leather shoes , classic handbags/cross bodies. Easy on the makeup, natural grey hair, Find your style and live it !
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.....
This whole thing makes me cringe. Wear what you want! Your old enough to know what You like. So what if I have crapey skin. It shows I've lived. I'm not going to cover up my age because it makes the young people uncomfortable. It's where we are all headed. Might as well get comfortable with it. Maybe we should learn to focus on the things that matter, like how we treat each other and stop shaming people about their appearance.
I totally disagree with previous comment. Women over 50 say they feel invisible - maybe that's because they dress to be invisible. I see a lot of women dressing dumpy which ages them more and I see a lot of women who try to be young by dressing too young. How you dress I forms people's first opinion - either confident, elegant, fun, full of life or dumpy, old, tired, desperate to be young, etc. There's nothing shaming in thinking about if your style makes you feel good!
In years past, there were certain "rules" women were expected to follow, directing how they should or should not dress after a certain age. Fashion over 50 used to mean putting your wardrobe in what amounted to a sartorial retirement home! Not anymore. We know now that fashion for women over 50 (or over 40, or over 30) is whatever a woman wants it to be. The real challenge lies where it always does: finding wearable, modern clothes to fit your lifestyle, budget, and figure.

I just turned 50, I wear a size 3, or 26", I am very active, run a horse breeding farm, burns a lot of calories. I love wearing short skirts, low tops, and heels, plus bikinis. My favorite jeans are by Miss Me. I have had a couple of plastic surgery procedures, most people guesstimate me to be 35-40. I feel 25. I am updating my wardrobe, adding some leather pieces, and nice sweaters, but I will dress young as long as I can!

I had ditched those heels from hell you mention, but I have a ball to go to, where I am doing a book signing appearance, so (shhhhhh, don't tell my feet!) I have just had to buy another pair. Sigh! You have some very elegant outfits here. I am playing safe for my book signing and wearing a very fitted black cocktail dress with a little frill just on the knee. Going for the simple but elegant look. Wish me luck!

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. 
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.

Nothing comes back the same way, and the jumpsuit of 2017 is not necessarily the same as a version from the '70s. Check out the difference in Raquel Welch's and Tilda Swinton's jumpsuits. There are subtle design tweaks that make any revival slightly different from the original. Does that piece from your "archive" really work now? Ask a trusted friend for a second opinion.
