High heels can be a problem for women over 50, but flats and kitten heels (1 1/2 -2") are fashionable and fun right now. Decorative elements like bows, buckles, and interesting materials give new style to comfortable shoes.
Dark hose is an important trend, especially for women after 50 whose legs aren't quite perfect. Black opaque panty hose or tights are easy and chic. They're available at a broad range of prices starting with the local drug store.
Boots, either sophisticated or casual, are another workable option, especially when the leg from boot to skirt is covered with dark tights. The new ankle boots are a fashion forward look for women after 50 with pants or a skirt. Many attractive boots are available with comfortable flat or low heels.
Longer tops, a current fashion trend, can work well for mature figures. Those tops aren't meant to be tucked in. They flow past the middle gracefully concealing any bumps or lumps. Longer sweaters, tee shirts, blouses and tunics are available in fabrics from cottons to jersey to cashmere.
Bigger necklaces have the right proportion with those longer tops. Chains, pearls, often in multiple strands work well, as do interesting beads. Shorter necklaces with many strands also look new. They’re an easy way for older women to add drama and personality to an outfit. Interesting choices are available in price ranges from Chico’s to Tiffany’s.
Fashion jeans are now worn everywhere from restaurants to casual parties. Dressier jeans can be worn well by many mature women. Higher waist styles often fit their bodies better than a low rise because there is less awkward bulging above the waistband. Very dark blue or white are two fashion jeans trends. They look more polished than faded denim on women after 50. Longer tops work especially well with jeans.
Longer skirts are an important new trend. After 50, long skirts should have a smooth fall of fabric from the waist with no gathering. Bunches of fabric around the tummy can be difficult.
Animal prints are a classic but also a very current fashion trend. Buying a few items, especially as accessories, adds spark to an outfit especially for women after 50.
A collection of mix and match sparkly or embroidered separates is a newer for holiday events. Many of these dressy separates work equally well with skirts, pants or jeans.
