Regardless whether you’re in your teens or forties, there is always a lesson or two to learn from stylish women over 50. For starters they’ve been around slightly longer which means that they’ve amassed a great deal of fashion savvy, they’ve seen hundreds of trends come and go so they would probably know what tends to stick around. So here below are the best fashion advice we can get from all those fashion-savvy slightly older women.
1 || Pay Attention To Your Jewelry
You can expertly mix fine jewelry with fashion jewelry to your heart’s content, just make sure your fashion jewelry adds up in terms of quality. Enjoy the occasional statement earring just steer clear of heavy pieces that can stretch your earlobe over time; clip-ons would be a good idea. Invest in vintage jewelry, these are pieces that never get old.
2 || Invest In Quality Tailoring
If your clothing are not perfectly tailored you risk making a good piece go to waste. It wouldn’t matter what brand it is or how much you paid for it, if it’s not properly tailored then forget it. Beware of wearing skirts that scrunch up at the waist or hems that are not razor-sharp. Also wrinkled clothing is big no-no but we’re sure you already knew that.
3 || Do Not Aim To Match Accessories
Always choose statement accessories but do not aim to perfectly match them. Your shoes, bag, belt, and scarf do not have to be a perfect match, in fact mixing colors and patterns always works to give your outfit a younger energy.
4 || Mix and Match Your Prints
Elevate your mostly black and white wardrobe by injecting patterns, prints, and color-blocking. If you’re not sure what to do, just start small by combining polka dots with a dominant color for example and then take it from there. There are no rules.
5 || Pass On The Uncomfortable Shoes
Most fashion savvy women have learnt to smartly pass up the too-high stilettos even if they’re incredibly pretty. The discomfort and the wiggly walk are just not worth it. And no they’re also not too old to rock the trending sneakers, sandals, loafers, or mules. They know how to prioritise comfort in addition to style.
6 || Check Out The Men’s Section
Make it a point to check out the menswear section in your favorite stores for a chance to load up on those super-cool t-shirts and those oversized sweaters and blazers to nail that slouchy relaxed look.
