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.

They seek out fashion-forward clothes that allow them 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!

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.

  • Raid 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
  • Chadwicks
  • Chicos
  • Macy's
  • Ann Taylor
  • J. Jill
  • Talbots
  • Pendleton
  • 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 fashions 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
  • Cardigan
  • 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 complemented 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.

Jeans

Who doesn't wear jeans? It's important to have a pair that makes you feel great.

The 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
  • Stretch
  • Dark wash

Other good brands:

  • Levi's
  • Not Your Daughter's Jeans
  • Lee
  • 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, Waistnippers, 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, waistnippers, and panties with brand names like:

  • Playtex
  • Glamorise
  • Crown-ette
  • Bali
  • Leading Lady
  • Valmont
  • 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 makes much more sense now than those spiked shoes from hell we wore in the 70's!

Now, we demand something with a go-everywhere walkability that looks good, too.

Finding quality mature women's shoes isn't difficult at all now thanks to online shopping.

Look for brand name shoes like:

  • Nine West
  • Clarks
  • Dansko
  • Birkenstock
  • Born
  • Easy Spirit
  • Softspots
  • Aravon
  • Walking Cradles
  • ECCO
  • Reiker
  • Rockport

Swimwear

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.

      Fabulous at all ages 12 days ago

      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???

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      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.

      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?

      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.

      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.

      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 14 months ago

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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!

      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!

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.....

      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.

      Thanks for some great tips and ideas. I like to wear comfortable but smart clothes and shoes with a small heel, never could wear high heels! I also find it helpful to wear lightweight layers of clothes so I can remove something if I have a dreaded hot flash!

      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!

      I'm well past 50 and it feels great. But it isn't easy finding the best fit and quality at a reasonable price. Great tips here.

      Though I am only 22 on the inside, my body has grown into much over 50. These dresses are stunning!

      Loved the shoes. I live in jeans and the little extra stretch makes them more comfortable.

      Taylored clothes are my favorite but I do so love the sundresses you have featured here. Congratulations on the Purple Star. You have definitely got your finger on the pulse of our 50 year old sisters.

      It's hard to believe the models in the pictures are over 50 but heck, the clothing is really beautiful.
