Essential Style Tips for Women Over 50

Linda FergusAs you get older, your sense of style changes and with it, your body. The outfits you wore nearly 20 years ago don’t fit the same – but that doesn’t mean you can’t still look stylish. You can still look fab over fifty with a few essential fashion tips.

Look to Style Icons. Women like Carolina Herrera, Barbara Walters, Diane Keaton and Susan Sarandon are great inspirations for mature fashion.

Keep grooming simple. Don’t think you have to cut your hair: a chic ponytail always looks smart and youthful. Too much color — red nails, red lips, eye shadow and blush (especially when used together) — are terribly aging.

Choose Classic Shapes. Pea jackets, shirt-dresses and trench coats never go out of style. Bring back a hint of your youth with some classic garments.

Invest in Turtlenecks. Black fitted turtlenecks flatter all women and are suitable for both day and night looks.

Experiment with Accessories. Add splashes of color and metal to your wardrobe by incorporating fun accessories, including handbags and scarves.

Skip the Frump. Choose fitted, not tight or frumpy garments. Wearing shapeless clothing can make you appear larger than you really are.

Minimize the Details. Gold buttons and trim can be aging. Instead, keep your garments simple with a tailored look without the glitz.

Show Off Your Legs. If you like to wear skirts, and you have good legs, wear them. (but not too short — they should fall around the knee).

Don’t Overthink It. It’s important to have a style that is all your own. Don’t go for trendy – be yourself and have your attire reflect your youthful personality.
