Timeless Elegance: Fashion Tips for Women Over 50

Timeless Elegance: Fashion Tips for Women Over 50

You know what’s so great about getting to a certain age and stage in life? You have this confidence about yourself, and who you are. That includes your sense of style and fashion sense. You know yourself better than anyone. From your body shape to your personality, you know what works, and what’s a hard pass!
There was a time when fashion for women over 50 was limited, dull or unflattering, but thankfully, times have changed. And we’re here to tell you that you can cultivate a timeless and elegant wardrobe to celebrate the woman you are—fabulous over 50!

Building a Classic Wardrobe

First things first—let’s look at getting some staple fashion items into your wardrobe. Classic pieces give us versatility in our outfits that are great for mixing and matching.

We’re specifically talking about dresses, tops and bottoms that offer maximum rotation and don’t go out of style.

Let’s start with neutral colours—blacks and whites.
A black dress is a must-have item in every woman’s wardrobe. It’s classic, elegant and timeless, and it is one of those fashion trends for over 50s that’s here to stay.
We‘re really loving the Minden Linen Shirred Short Sleeve Dress in Black right now. It ticks all the boxes with its focus on style and comfort. It's a chameleon of dresses, perfect for all occasions. Look at how the shirred bodice detail helps to flatter the bust while the tiered skirt elongates the legs. So beautiful!

A simple white top is another staple of every woman’s wardrobe, regardless of age. The Adrift Ribbed Tee in White is perfect for layering (see our guide to layering like a champ here). Another must-have is a white shirt like the Sam Cotton Poplin Shirt in White, with its button-up design and collar adding a touch of sophistication to this humble but effective wardrobe piece.
Another must-have is a comfy but good looking pair of pants. Our Breezy Cropped Relaxed Tencel Pant in Mid Wash is exactly as the name suggests; breezy and relaxed with its elasticised waist and pockets (yes ladies, we love our pockets don’t we?)

These looks for women over 50 combine everything women like us are looking for—comfort, style, elegance and versatility.

Exploring Comfortable Yet Chic Clothing Options

I don’t know about you, but I’m at that age and stage in life where I don’t want to suffer in discomfort for my fashion look. I want comfortable options that look amazing. Oh to think back to my younger years and what I put up with to follow fashion trends! These days we know better and realise that fashion trends for women over 50 wont leave us feeling tucked in, awkward and sore anymore.

We want chic options that go with the flow, like this Minden Linen Long Sleeve Shirred Dress in Plum. With its long sleeves and a shirred waist, it is flattering for all body types. You can get away with wearing this outfit effortlessly from day to night with its rich plum hue tones. Best of all, it is super comfy with its beautiful 100% soft linen, and yes, it has pockets!

Accessorising for Sophistication

Accessories really add individual pop and flavour to any outfit. Here’s where your personality and sense of style can really shine. Fashion for older ladies tends to focus on sophistication, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun at the same time when you’re looking for fashion for women over 60.

Imagine you’re at an event and have gone the classic black dress route for the evening. Your choice of earrings can take the look from sophisticated to fun and flirty, just by changing your earrings. The best thing, ladies…they don’t cost a lot but give you a quick and easy way to change your look in an instant.
Picture that black dress paired with the Nylah Flower Earrings in Pearl. What do you see? I tell you what I see—I see a woman who oozes sophistication and style.

Now, picture that same dress with a pair of Tropez Earrings in Turquoise & Blue. Now we’re talking sophistication but with a pop of colour and sass. Same outfit but totally different mood.

The beauty is that any one of you can pull this off by accessorising your earrings to the event or just how you’re feeling that day. Want more flair but still keeping it in the elegance theme? Try these awesome Woven Triangle Earrings in Fuchsia—bright tones against a black outfit is going to turn heads for sure.

Who say’s mature womens fashion needs to be dull and predictable? We want names, now! Hehe…

Embracing Your Unique Style

Fashion styles for older ladies are all about embracing your individuality and expressing yourself with confidence. Remember, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to fashion for older women —it's all about what makes you feel fabulous.

One of the best things about being in your 50s and beyond is that you've honed your personal style over the years. You know what works for you and what doesn't, and you're not afraid to take risks and try new things. Clothes for women over 50 can be whatever you want it to be. So go ahead, mix and match different pieces, play with textures and silhouettes, and don't be afraid to let your personality shine through in your outfits.

At the end of the day, fashion is all about self-expression and feeling confident in your own skin. Fashion outfits for women over 50 are exciting, so embrace it and celebrate mature women’s fashion. Let’s give those 20-somethings a run for their money and show them how it’s done!
