Today my post is about autumn fashion for the over 50’s. In my mother and definitely my grandmothers era reaching your fifties meant comfort, elasticated waists and sensible hush puppy shoes. These days we still have a lot of living to do and busy social lives. Although we are older and many do not still have the figures and measurements of our youth we still wish to keep up with trends and fashion and care for our appearance.
With this in mind this autumn I want to recommend some simple pieces for updating your look. The seasons autumn fashion colours are actually autumnal shades with lots of mustard and russet shades around alongside the softer pinks and greys and the staple wardrobe basic of black. By saying this I am making an assumption that a lot of us over 50’s who carry extra weight have many black items in our wardrobes!
Here is just 4 age appropriate autumn fashion pieces that have caught my eye this season.
Before I introduce some of this seasons latest colours I have to give a shout out to this fabulous soft pink sparkly poncho by Principles at Debenhams. I spotted it on a hanger and fell in love with it, such a soft knit with a hint of sparkle. The photograph does not do it justice – it really is gorgeous and feels super soft. Perfect for the menopausal woman who needs to layer up to cope with the effects of those personal tropical moments!
This next top is again from Debenhams – I must confess that after supermarkets and Next I buy many of my clothes from here.This tan short sleeved shirt from J by Jasper Conran caters so well for the over 50’s.
This top is in a fabulous autumnal colour. It has a flattering v nexk for those of us with big boobs. It is soft and drapey skimming those lumps and bumps we try hard to disguise and is nice and lightweight, perfect for layering – essential to cope with hot flushes. A simple stylish autumn fashion piece.
These fabulous camel coloured ankle boots are from another of my favourite stores Wallis. I mostly wear very comfortable shoes day to day but I always have a dressier heeled pair for days and nights out when I’m not expecting to have to walk any distance. These will look fabulous with cropped pants, jeans or even dresses.
My final item is this fabulous on trend mustard coloured coat from Matalan. I think this is a flattering style for most body shapes and adds a seasonal colour pop to any outfit for any occasion. Great price too.
