Fifty may be the new forty, but that doesn’t mean you should be borrowing clothes from your daughter. Our bodies change significantly and even if you haven’t gained an ounce since your 30s, your clothes just don’t fit like they used to. Those once toned body parts have shifted and are probably a little saggier than in years past. This isn’t a bad thing, it is just the hard truth and if you haven’t updated your wardrobe lately, now is the perfect time.
This doesn’t mean you simply throw in the towel and start dressing frumpy. The opposite is true. Now is the time to let your true self shine! You are 50, embrace your age, your self-confidence and your sense of style and have fun!
7 Fashion Tips For Women Over 50:
1. Go for Structure
Structured clothes are going to be more flattering than baggy clothing. Look for items with a waistline and show off that figure!

2. Add Color
When you are over 50, black can be too harsh and actually age you. Add color to brighten your face and make you appear younger, instantly! Jewel tones tend to be the most flattering as we age so go for bright pinks, purples and blues for the most pop.
3. Find a Well-Fitting Jean
It used to be that the only thing available for the over 50 crowd was jeans with elastic waistbands. Thankfully, that is no longer true with designers creating jeans that fit most body types making it easier to find jeans that flatter and are age-appropriate. A trouser jean is pretty universally flattering and can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on your occasion.
4. Embrace Your Gray
There are some battles that just aren’t worth fighting and sometimes, gray hair is one of those. Gray hair doesn’t have to look old, you can keep it bright with products that are specially designed for gray hair. You also want to keep your cut sleek and modern so you don’t look older than you are.
5. Color Your Gray
If you prefer to stay in the battle, by all means, color away! Same rule goes for the cut, keep it sleek and modern.
Learn to accessorize with jewelry, handbags, and scarves. They keep your look fresh and young!
