I enjoy scrolling through Instagram or Pinterest and spotting stylish women over 50 nailing it with their fashion outfits. It can inspire me and help me to stop wearing the same combination of clothes each day. I know that staying slim or looking slim after forty can be complicated particularly post menopause when the pounds are harder to shift. Diets seem to be on everyone’s list right now with Boris Johnson leading the campaign for us all to get slimmer and fitter.
So I have tried to choose different shapes and sizes or if I have chosen a picture of a gorgeous, slim woman (as in picture 1) it is because I just want to show some detail of how to put an outfit together. However all the outfits could be worn on any shape or size.
I have looked for similar items available now, online, so that you can perhaps copy the look.
Accessories can really add the finishing touches to a plain outfit and transform it into something special. The picture below shows, in my opinion, a very stylish woman wearing a pair of white jeans with a navy sweater but it is the shoes, scarf and even the silver bangle that make it look so polished.
The next look I love for the nail varnish and lipstick which pull the outfit together and make the whole outfit look so ‘polished’. It is such a cool summer look. This lady has style and without spending too much she has created a modern look that can take her anywhere.
This lady is absolutely overflowing with energy and whilst it is a casual look I still felt she was part of the stylish women group I admire. She is wearing her workout leggings and top but has obviously finished her workout and has popped on a cover up.
These gowns are a great item to pack in your suitcase to take on holiday as they can double up as a dressing gown or can be worn over trousers and a tee-shirt.
I was recently introduced to the company From My Mother’s Garden – the prints are so gorgeous.
“Inspired by my mother’s joy derived from her small garden and the often breath-taking beauty and magical quality of every living aspect of it, my partner Alistair and I set about capturing it in images. From this, I have created timeless pieces to symbolise the un-ending bond between mother and daughter.“
I chose the picture below because I love the way this lady has chosen to pick out two of the colours in the dress with her shoes and lipstick. Of course we all love the fact that is is acceptable to wear trainers with everything but these khaki ones are so unusual and definitely got my vote to be part of the stylish women group.
