As we age, our style and taste evolves too. Dressing and choosing garments that suit our personality and style becomes more of a challenge for many of us. Similarly, as we move into the warmer seasons, our winter wardrobe must gradually transition into spring and summer outfits. For women over 50, it can be challenging to keep up with ever-changing fashion trends. This guide will help you update your wardrobe for spring and summer, and offer some tips for looking your best.

Spring Clothing Tips

Embrace Pastel Hues: Spring is all about pastel colors. Incorporate colors like lavender, mint green, baby blue, or petal pink in your wardrobe. If pastels are not your personal taste embrace a lighter color palette. Lighter colors and pastels look lovely on women over 50, and they also go well with classic pieces like white trousers, palazzo pants, jeans, or skirts.

Lightweight Knits: Springtime temperatures can be a bit tricky, so be sure to have lightweight layers on hand. A lightweight knit piece like a cardigan or sweater is an excellent choice for layering. You can add this on top of a t-shirt or blouse to keep you warm and stylish. If the weather becomes too warm, you can drape the knit over your shoulders for a classic/preppier look or tie it around your waist to create definition.

Denim: Denim is an all-time classic staple that never goes off trend. Opt for skinny or straight-legged jeans that fit well or a denim midi dress that elongates your silhouette. Our Iconic Stretch Jeans are designed in a timeless cut with a stretchy waistband to ensure both comfort and style. If a fitted style is not your speed, choose a flowy and breezier denim bottom. Any denim bottom or dress will never go out of style, and transition easily between all seasons.

Add Colorful or Interesting Jewelry: Adding lightly colored earrings, necklaces, or bangles to any outfit will instantly brighten up your outfit. If you tend to stick to a darker color palette, the pop of pastel or color of jewelry will elevate your outfit into spring mode.

Summer Clothing Tips

Lighten Up with Linen: Linen is a timeless summer fabric that is perfect for keeping you cool in hot weather. It’s a material that breathes well and feels light on the skin. Look for linen pants, dresses, or skirts that are comfortable, and you can style with different tops. It’s the perfect beach to dinner material that elevates your wardrobe. Similarly an all white outfit, especially with linen, is the most classic color and material combinations for the summer.

Midi Dresses: Midi dresses are a great way to keep cool and look fashionable in summer. They come in various styles, such as A-line, fit and flare, or empire cut. Choose a midi dress that flatters your body type, and you can dress up or down with heels or sandals. A midi style provides that perfect balance between conservative and flashy silhouettes.

Sleeveless Dresses Or Tops: Ditching sleeves gives you the ultimate comfort of staying cool while you endure the summer heat. Sleeveless tops and dresses are also one of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe. You can easily layer cardigans, sweaters, or jackets over them when the weather becomes cooler.

To sum everything up, looking good and feeling confident never goes out of style, and women over 50 can still be fashionable by choosing the right pieces and accessories. Spring and summer are filled with lots of opportunities to experiment with different styles, colors and silhouettes. Keep in mind comfort is key! As much as we all love to look fashionable, it’s important to be comfortable too. Choosing clothes that feel good on your skin and make you feel good will help you feel confident in your style choices. Incorporate some of these tips into your wardrobe, and you’ll be on your way to looking and feeling fabulous for the warmer seasons.
