How to Dress Fabulous Over 50
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.
I say, hooray, we can finally look as young as we feel. Follow these fashion tips, and you can too!
Here's a sneak peek of what this article will cover:
- how to update your look
- store recommendations and shopping tips
- a list of classic pieces
- the benefits of sweaters and cardigans
- how to find a great pair of jeans
- how to find high-quality outerwear
- the importance of shapewear and undergarments
- why you should choose high-quality shoes
- advice on shopping for swimwear
Updating Your Look
It can be hard to branch out and wear styles of clothing, hair, or makeup that might not be familiar to you. Here are some ways to bridge the gap.
- Find a fashion buddy, maybe a friend or a daughter. Go shopping with a fashionable friend and get their opinion on what you should wear. Though you might think something is too over-the-top, they'll be able to give you real input on what looks good.
- Update your hair: If you've been wearing the same hairstyle for a few decades, it's time to change. Go through some magazines and find looks that you like. Ask your friends or hairstylists and try something new.
- Update your makeup: Don't overdo it though! Go get a makeover at a cosmetics store to try new looks and get feedback from your fashion friends.
- Revamp your closet: Go through all of your clothes. What have you been wearing and why? What haven't you been wearing and why? Looking at your current habits in detail will keep you from making similar fashion mistakes when you go shopping this time.
Stores for Mature Women
Look your best by choosing clothes that fit your lifestyle, budget, and figure. The best clothing stores that cater to mature women include:
- Lord & Taylor
- Ann Taylor
- J. Jill
- Karen Kane
- Dana Buchman
- Eddie Bauer
- White House Black Market
Don't forget to check even at places like Target, or online at Amazon or Zappos. You might be surprised at what you find.
Here are some shopping tips:
- When shopping for clothes, be unpredictable and think as young as you feel. This isn't to say you should raid your daughter's closet and borrow her mini skirt or hipster jeans. Do, however, think modern, elegant, and chic.
- It's okay to choose solid colors and bold styles. Anything works as long as you feel comfortable wearing it.
- Choose classic shapes and clothes that drape instead of clinging.
- Hemlines should not be too short, ladies. Aim for just above the knee.
- Wrap dresses are very flattering. If you find the neckline is too revealing, wear a lacy cami underneath.
- Wearing quality shapewear underneath your clothes is very important. Your bras, panties, and shapers should be brand-name and fit properly.
- Avoid pastels, floral prints, and anything with frills or decals.
- Look for inspiration on Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr.
- Invest in quality clothing and tailored clothes that will flatter your figure. At 50, a great fit is everything. You should opt for quality because you will find better fabrics, better cuts, and therefore, better fits.
Yes, ladies! Great style can happen over 50, even if you're on a small budget. Your wardrobe can be smart and super stylish on every level, whether you're dressing for the office or your home office.
Classic Pieces for Your Wardrobe
Items to have in your wardrobe are:
- Classic blazer
- Tunic top
- Black dress
- Pair of great fitting jeans
Go from frumpy to fabulous with modern pieces that your grandma wouldn't have ever dared to wear!
- Bring attention to your good features when shopping for clothes. If you have bad legs, wear dark leggings and dresses or skirts that are longer.
- Heavy at the waistline? New block designs in women's wear can actually trick the eye into making you look like you have an hourglass figure!
- Women that are heavy in the thighs can opt to wear stretch jeans or dark pants with a patterned top to take attention from them.
Sweaters and Cardigans
It's fair to say that I never owned as many cardigans as I do now that I turned 50. Some women prefer layering with blazers or jackets, but I prefer a pretty sweater.
Today's styles are feminine, modern, cozy, and make a perfect addition to your wardrobe any time of year. It makes a woman feel good to complimented at any age but especially when you're over 50. This is one more reason to choose beautifully tailored clothes.
If you're looking to achieve great style and want to be comfortable at the same time, a draped cardi might just be the answer to your fashion woes. Perfect for layering, stylish cardigans can be worn over a top, blouse, or dress and can give a boost to your entire look.
Who doesn't wear jeans? It's important to have a pair that makes you feel great.
These jeans from NYDJ are an easy staple that every woman over 50 should have in her closet. Seriously. Both comfortable and classic, the boot cut jeans offer a cool silhouette and waist control.
They make dressing a breeze, too. Just toss on a cute top and you're ready to go! I think you'll agree that being comfortable in your jeans is something that you demand at this age and here, you have the tummy panel that keeps you controlled but comfortable.
You'll look great in the figure-flattering cut and a dark wash that makes you look slimmer.
Features to look for in jeans:
- Tummy-slimming panel
- Elastic waist
- Dark wash
Other good brands:
- Not Your Daughter's Jeans
- 7 For All Mankind
Outerwear and Jackets
Choose luxurious, rich fabrics like buttery leather, soft fur, or cashmere and you simply can't go wrong.
Here are some good styles:
- Trench coats
- Pea jackets
- Car coats
- Leather jackets
- Jean jackets
These kinds of coats and jackets are eternally youthful in spirit. Since they're such an important part of your look, it's best to think designer brands when it comes to your jacket.
Here's what to look for in your jacket:
- Comfort—How do you feel wearing it?
- Close fit—It should be fitted but not tight. Tailored pieces make you look younger.
- Versatility—Can you dress it up and dress it down?
- Quality—What is it made of? Will it last?
- Style—Is it fashion-forward but not too trendy? You want this piece to last for years.
Shapewear: Shapers, Bras, Waist Nippers, and Panties
Unless you're a woman that spends countless hours working out in a gym, (and who does that, unless you're a rich celebrity), your best plan of attack for shaping and sculpting the old body is going to come from wearing shapewear that offers firm control.
I know you'll like shopping for shapewear online. Shop for shapers, bras, waist nippers, and panties with brand names like:
- Leading Lady
- Body Image
Shoes: Chic and Comfortable
Heels shouldn't be too high. Instead, opt for strapped sandals, wedges, or stylish flats. High-quality brand name shoes make much more sense now than those spiked shoes from hell we wore in the '70s!
Now, we demand something with a go-everywhere walkability that looks good, too.
Finding quality for mature women's shoes isn't difficult at all now thanks to online shopping.
Look for brand name shoes like:
- Nine West
- Easy Spirit
- Walking Cradles
Of course, our bikini days are over now, but there are some really high-quality one-piece swimsuits and tankinis that can make you feel attractive in a bathing suit again.
The key word to remember when shopping for a swimsuit now is quality. Don't run out to Walmart and get something that is cheaply made that any 20-year-old would look good in. Go for quality now—you have to. I mean, it isn't cute anymore when one of your straps break or the bottoms slide off when you're swimming.
Choose reputable designer brands that you like. I have a Miraclesuit swimsuit that has gotten me plenty of compliments this year. They are on the expensive side but are well worth the extra cash.
Another Good Resource
More is my favorite magazine and is the best magazine for women over 50!
Here you can learn about the season's hottest styles and great fashion finds under $100. I really like the way all the models featured in More are women that are actually over 40 (not twenty-somethings to remind you that you're not so young anymore).
The beauty care and health products featured are geared towards women my age and it has interesting articles that allow you to stay informed of the latest medical advancements affecting your generation and gender. The featured stories and memoirs are thoughtful and so inspirational.
More also contains articles on finances that are beneficial to women looking to invest, retire, or just manage personal income, too.
Find a Fashion Icon
Are there any celebrities over 50 that you feel really have a great sense of style? What do they wear? Follow them and their pattern of clothing, accessories, hair, and makeup to get ideas for yourself.
What Do You Think?
What do you think should be in your closet when you're over 50? Maybe a favorite dress that is spectacular? What kind of jeans would you recommend? How about accessorizing? Please share.

Noeeee on June 24, 2020:
What?! This is ridiculous! Older women can rock many of the same styles as younger women. Turning 50 shouldn't mean you have to cover up and dress in a particular style, especially not wearing the boring nonsense described in this article!
Fash London on February 27, 2020:
What an awesome post! It gives us a great sense of fashion for women above 50 years. We are also thinking to add collection for these women at https://fashlondon.co.uk.
Diamond Perez on May 30, 2019:
im turning 55yrs old now,in june i look more in my 4o's,and dress like a teenager with class dont like showing my cleave or tight closthing only fitted one
Julie Olea on April 28, 2019:
I will be 55 in 2 weeks. Still occasionally carded for alcohol, my uncontrollable excitement instantly gives me away! But menopause was NOT kind, adding 20 pounds to mostly my midsection. UGH! Want to know good shopping spots that cater to concealment of a barrel-body. Anyone know some magic of this nature?
Coni on March 29, 2019:
You go HP!!! I love boho and I too have tone it down. BUT I’m still Boho And enjoying it I even have friends wanting to try my clothes on... oh I’m 65 and dressing with good taste. At least my daughters and my mom (93) tell me I’m good.
HP on September 17, 2018:
No boho!! I have been a lite boho for years. Though i have toned it down to suit my age. 56. Why should i change the way i like to dress because of a number! I always get compliments on my clothing so i will continue to be a boho lady.
Kathleen on June 27, 2018:
All of your suggestions are on target for mature women. I like:
1. Vionic shoes for the arch support and Kitten heels they sell..
2. Less make-up, possible permanent eye liner helps, with mascara and natural lipstick.and a good sunscreen.
3. Good dental hygiene and whitener helps brighten the smile, just don't over do it.
4. Good posture and a yoga class helps flexibility.
5. Quality in dressing is very important, wait for sales if possible.
6. Leave the puffy coats for the thin, and chose a tailored coat with a fur or faux fur collar..
7. Jewelry and accessories should match the size of your features. Large features or large people can wear larger size accessories, than small or petite women usually.
8. boots or booties, with socks for cold feet. Warm and comfortable feet makes one relaxed and happy.
My best thoughts for now. I like your Tips and recommendations.
peggy langford on June 24, 2018:
Don't forget about Jag Jeans! Comfortable and stylish!
Velda on February 07, 2018:
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 !
Sloane Beck on December 02, 2017:
Great tips, what I believe is Fashion never end up with your young age moreover clothes don't make a man, they only make an impression and even then, you dress to suit the occasion.
Fabulous at all ages on October 08, 2017:
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???
ana on July 30, 2017:
been 50 and having most people thinking of you as been mid 30s or 40 is within normal expections now days due mostly to the not heavy life style you have. Will be extraordinary if people think of you as been 20s now that is a 30 year difference and that is amazzzzing! ps. and without cosmetic surgery.
Lisa on May 26, 2017:
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!
Sandy on April 13, 2017:
I found that some of the comments are a little offensive. Just because I am a senior citizen doesn't mean I am fat and have body issues. I don't need elastic waistbands or long dresses as my shape is fine. I wear a size 6. Petite outfits that are age appropriate is what I was looking for.
Trish on March 28, 2017:
I have no role model in celebrities over fifty. They are slim and have people do their hair and makeup.
None of these tips quite worked for me. I gained fifteen pounds this last year. it went to my boobs, my waist and my ass. i am looking for something that addresses a big chest and thick waist .
I found the article helpful.
Tracy on February 24, 2017:
When you were creating a list of celebrities did you not even think about black female celebrities like Halle Berry, Vanessa Williams, Cynthia Bailey, Viola Davis, Tina Knowles, Angela Bassett, Iman, and Robin Roberts? No, I guess not!
58 and still fabulous on February 09, 2017:
Who doesn't wear jeans? I don't. Stopped wearing them after age 24. Not that I can't; I am 5/4" and 110 lbs. I just don't like them, and neither did Coco Chanel.
Ms wondeful on January 31, 2017:
I'm 50 and my bikini days are not over. I also love florals. While I appreciate guidelines, a list of no-nos box a woman's creativity and expression
Kara on January 10, 2017:
Was always the youngest in my group, and just like that, I'm the oldest. So I can't ask my friends and don't live in an area where I can look to what others are wearing, nor spend a fortune, even on a classic piece. I also made a commitment to myself to shop American, so thank you for the head start.
Heather on December 20, 2016:
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?
Catherine on December 18, 2016:
I'm almost 51, have great skin thanks to genetics, have been active all my life, have long dark hair (in great condition with minimal greys)...most people think I'm in my mid 30s. I still wear bikinis and short skirts and get compliments from both genders. I do think 50 and over should avoid florals, too much lace, and hair accessories with the exception of a barrette or hair band for a low ponytail.
The Cat on November 28, 2016:
Much of the advice is okay, but in my opinion the need for advice is greater among younger women. Where I live, most women past 50 look far more stylish than many women in their twenties and thirties. And why do you say that "of course, our bikini days are over now"? I know women in their seventies and even eighties who still look great in a bikini.
RMTinDFW on November 22, 2016:
Interesting comments regarding 'appropriate' dress. I'm finding at 62 I can still pull off the occasional tight, low cut, etc. pieces when layered under a jacket, sweater or scarf. Also shapewear is a must have as gravity will have its way!
Just don't see anything wrong with feeling fashionable, fun and sexy/attractive at any age if done with taste and the right fit. Loving many of the tips and advice on this forum.
Victoria on August 26, 2016:
Whether we like it or not there are situations and places that require a certain way of dressing. Although this site is directing the issue toward mature women, I often see younger women who dress shabbily, inappropriately, and too provocatively. Some people in the name of freedom of style proclaim that a person should be able to wear whatever they like, wherever they like. But this is not only an irresponsible attitude, but also wishful thinking.
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.
When you were four, you dressed like a four-year-old. When you were twenty, you dressed like a twenty-year-old. And now that you are over 50, explore the selection of beautiful casual and elegant clothes available for this age group. Cultivate a style that makes you look attractive, comfortable, and chic. Be a role model for the younger generation. Let them see how a mature and confident woman should present herself. You'll look and feel so much better.
Jana on August 21, 2016:
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!
Jen on July 22, 2016:
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.
Lu H on May 15, 2016:
two of my 62 y/o friends wear (cringe & shudder) tube tops or strapless tops! Absolutely awful! Ladies NEVER wear these as our 'girls' are not where they used to be, they have gone South, and wearing a tube top or strapless top simply makes them go More South!
Cindy on May 10, 2016:
Thank you for the great tips. I know woman is n their 50s who wear bikinis and it makes me cringe

I'm in my 70's, still look good but no more short sleeves. Gravity is taking over. Now, I want a beautiful wrap dress for granddaughter's wedding. No grandmother-of-the-bride look. Any suggestions of where to shop? Don't have a large budget but have good fashion sense. No pastels!
DebMartin on July 30, 2015:
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
Ana Maria Orantes from Miami Florida on January 05, 2015:
I like your hub because it has the most important information on how to wear beautiful clothes when you are in your fifties. It is nice to wear attractive beautifully clothes. It feels good wearing the satin or any soft comfortable fabric. You are great for sharing what you know. Thank you for spending your time and writing about what to wear at the age of 50 years old.

Definitely must pass this along to my mother! I feel that women over 50 just need jeans that are not too baggy; many women at that age need jeans that are fitted, not too skinny or too loose.

Great information.Love the styles. As a woman over 50 myself I know how important it is to always look your best.

Angela F from Seattle, WA on February 25, 2014:
Best tip I ever got from a woman in her 70s was to NOt wear peasant style or boho style tops for work -- her reasoning: "Your wisdom and experience are valuable and should be perceived as such. Stop looking like a peasant." Made me rethink when and where to wear collars and buttoned tops and jackets!

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.....

I used to be in marketing and sales and so was 'on show' every day and had to find clothes that didn't mind being crushed sitting in a car or behind a desk all day, and always managed to somehow look fresh and confident.
Great tips for us baby boomer women trying to keep the show on the road - lol!

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!

Great topic and lens! In many ways, I think life begins at 50 (I have passed the half century mark) and it's nice to have clothes that reflect that. You have a really nice selection.

This is a helpful lens, especially the part on body shapers. My favorite outfit right now is a longish black dress with a black and red jaguar print jacket over it. I always choose dangly earrings (clip ons). I love shopping for earrings.

These are great fashion tips. Those clothes look amazing. Fashion doesn't have to end when one gets older.

My best fashion tip for women over 50 is to dress in clothes that are made well, are stylish but not trendy, and (most importantly) fit well. Terrific lens - blessed!

Since I work from home, I do not have as much in closet. I need to look at Chadwicks again, they have great fashions for great prices!
