Fashion After 50

Around the age of 50, a woman’s body will usually begin to really change, which can make the idea of dressing fashionably seem like quite the challenge. If you have been finding it difficult to navigate the world of fashion in order to find looks that are both stylish and comfortable, here are some tips to take along with you on your next shopping trip.

Show Off Those Arms
The arms can be an area of the body that are a giveaway when it comes to age, and can sometimes even make you appear older than you really are. However, more often than not, they are not as aging as you may think, and there is no reason why you should not show them off in a sleeveless top once in a while. However, if you would prefer to keep a small part of your arm hidden, opt for cap sleeves, or try draping a scarf over a sleeveless top for some extra coverage.

Wedges for Some Height
Heel height can be a tricky area for women over 50, but wearing flat shoes all the time will only end up making you look drab. To counter this, invest in a pair of timeless wedges, as these will not only give you height, but also lengthen your leg and work with a wide range of outfits. To top it all off, just about every designer out there has a pair of wedges under their name, from Christian Louboutin to Prada, meaning that you are guaranteed to find something that works for you.

Slim and Tailored
It can be easy to fall into the trap of wearing oversized, baggy clothing in order to cover up any unwanted lumps or bumps, but this is definitely not going to be flattering. A slim and tailored look is always going to be the better option, as this will be cut close enough to the body to flatter your figure, but with enough room to cover up any problem areas. If you already own several oversized garments, find an experienced tailor and take these in, as they may be able to transform them into beautifully flattering outfits.

A Trendy Handbag
Once you have reached the age of 50, it can sometimes be best to simply opt for timeless, classic looks that flatter your body and reflect your personal style, rather than following the latest trends and fads. However, there is no denying the excitement that comes from owning a just-off-the-runway piece, or from experimenting with bold and unusual trends, so rather than shying away from these completely, incorporate the trends that appeal to you into your handbag. Whether this may be metallic shades or embroidered details, your handbag is the perfect accessory to embody your favorite seasonal trends.

When it comes to fashion after 50, you need to remember that you can still have plenty of freedom when it comes to your outfit choices. Rather than being weighed down by the thought of needing age-appropriate garments, simply seek out what works best for you as an individual, and allow your personal style to continue blossoming and thriving.

How to Keep Your Look Timeless – OROGOLD Reviews

Fashion trends may come and go with each new season, but a timeless look is one that never goes out of style. It may take a while to develop a distinctive yet classic look, but once you do, you will never again have any problems looking elegant and effortlessly chic.

Quality Over Quantity
Although it may be tempting to have something completely different to wear everyday, timeless looks are all about quality, and you should always strive to buy the best that you can afford. High quality garments will be cut in a way that will accentuate and flatter your figure. Opt for natural fabrics, such as wool, silk and cotton, as these have great movement and drape qualities. Always avoid polyester and other synthetic fabrics, as these are much stiffer and bulkier, and will accentuate your imperfections.

Invest in Key Pieces
There are certain garments that every woman, regardless of age, size or background, should have in her wardrobe. The LBD, Little Black Dress, is one of those staples, as it is the perfect canvas for so many different looks. A classic white shirt can also be worn in so many ways, as can a pair of classic jeans. For outerwear, a trench coat is a garment that works with all body types, accentuates waistlines and hides flaws. It is also the ultimate icon of chic, giving the wearer some instant allure.

Simple and Elegant
One of the keys to looking timeless is keeping your outfit fuss-free. Choose clothes that are cut in an elegant, minimal way. Avoid clothes that are distressed, ripped or embellished, as this isn’t the look that you are going for. Prints should also be avoided, unless they are extremely simple. If you want to include prints and bursts of color in your outfit, do this with your accessories. A printed scarf or bold colored bag can really brighten up an outfit. Make sure that your clothes always fit you perfectly, and avoid anything that is baggy or oversized, as this won’t do your look any good, and will only make you look bigger in all the wrong places.

Well-Groomed
Once you have your timeless wardrobe sorted, you need to make sure that your hair, face and skin complement it. You should always be well-groomed, with a clean face and nails, and not drenched in perfume. Keep your makeup to a minimum, so that it always looks fresh and natural rather than heavy and dark. Work on developing a customized skin care routine, so that your skin always has a healthy glow to it. Your hair should always be neat and well-conditioned. If getting your hair color or highlights regularly touched up isn’t something that you’re good at doing, skip the color and go with your natural shade, as visible roots will immediately detract from your timeless look.

With a bit of time and thought, a timeless and classic look is easy to put together. Try to always choose garments that accentuate your best assets, and, no matter how tempted you may be to forgo your classic look for a trendy new style, remember Coco Chanel’s wise words; Fashion changes, but style endures.
