The best clothes for women over 50


In the closet of a woman over 50 years of age can not miss a dress. Depending on the cut, it will be well suited both for work and for a date or family celebration. Mature women on store shelves should look for, among others, envelope dresses, A-shaped bottom and knee-length. This is a proven way to subtly emphasize the bust, lengthen the neck, emphasize the waistline and optically slim the legs. Such a dress can be worn by the holders of hourglass, pear or apple silhouettes.

What is worth paying attention to when choosing such an envelope dress? It is best that it was made of slightly stiffer, thicker materials. However, elastic, tight-fitting, short creations will not work here – they may look a bit vulgar. Women with sagging shoulders, should bet on dresses with ¾ or long sleeves, which will effectively mask them. What color should have such a creation? Instead of black, it is worth betting on navy blue. Equally good will be such colors as maroon or bottle green

How to style an envelope dress? It is recommended to match it with a slightly waisted jacket. It can also be matched with a slightly longer, tied at the waist cardigan or classic, timeless trench. To optically lengthen and slim your legs, it is best to wear stiletto heels, comfortable and stable pumps or stiletto shoes.

Blouses and shirts

Ladies over 50 also look good in blouses. It’s a great alternative to tight-fitting tops or printed t-shirts. A slim-fit shirt with a low waist paired with a pencil skirt, blazer and simple pumps covering the toes and heels are ideal for work

A casual shirt made of linen, paired with material pants and espadrilles, will go well with everyday outfits. Why is a shirt a good choice for a fifty-year-old? It effectively elongates the neck and covers the shoulders, which are often a complex among mature women. As for the color, you can opt for white, as well as blue or navy. Nothing prevents a fifty-year-old woman from wearing a shirt in the shade of mustard or violet. Fans of slightly bolder stylizations may be tempted to wear a patterned model, for example with flowers or check. Such a patterned shirt will go well with classic straight leg jeans.


The first choice is cigarette pants, a model with narrow, straight or slightly tapered legs, which usually end just above the ankles. They are very often cuffed and have belt loops. Women over 50 can wear black, navy blue or bottle green cigarette pants. Another option are chinos, pants similar to men’s, with slanted pockets and slightly looser at the buttocks. They are most often available in shades such as khaki, sand or navy blue.
