Fashion Over 50: What Styles Should Older Women Wear?

Milestones, achievements and accomplishments. You've earned enough to fill 10 scrapbooks. You've survived your childhood as well as your kids' childhoods. Grace under pressure is no longer your inspiration?it's your everyday life. You know the difference between a minor catastrophe and a full-blown crisis. You understand that true beauty comes from within–and not a jar or bottle. You're more than accustomed to life's little surprises, and are now even more familiar with joy. And most importantly, you know bliss is something money can never, ever buy. You're a mature, intelligent woman, and you've learned that time and patience are the answers to most problems. But there is one question you have yet to figure out: What do women over 50 wear?

The easy answer to that fashion dilemma is? anything you want. After all, you've certainly earned the right. But red hats, feather boas and purple cowboy boots aren't something you necessarily want to wear everyday.

When we polled our loyal customers about what fashions women over 50 most want to wear, the answers fell into five distinct categories: Comfort, Fluidity, Flattery, Color and Fun. So here are our tried and true fashion tips for women over 50.

What comfort clothing styles should women over 50 wear?

First off, we need to explain that comfort clothes are not frumpy clothes. Long gone are the days of house dresses and slippers. Today's fashion for women over 50 are as chic as can be with soft, cotton-rich fabrics and premium knits. In fact, Draper's & Damon's specializes in trendsetting, sophisticated styles made from luxuriously soft and smooth fabrics. Which essentially means any outfit can be a comfort outfit when it's designed in comfortable materials.

Structured clothing feels too stuffy. Can fashions for women over 50 include beautiful drape and flow?

Clothes with fluidity and ease of movement are at the top of our customers' wish list. Which is why silken kimonos with kabuki sleeves and cardigans with cascading open fronts have become the #1 styles for women over 50. We can barely keep these styles in stock as they pair beautifully with our Herringbone, Classic Comfort®, Slimtacular® and Signature Knits® pull-on pants. So pretty with dramatic prints, and so lovely with feminine flow, they've almost completely replaced traditional jackets and blazers.

Shapewear can be too snug. Are there any other figure-flattering clothes for women over 50 that aren't binding or restrictive?

When it comes to clothes with fabulous flattery, the best styles will lift, support and cover without any uncomfortable squeeze. So be sure to look for premium knit tops that are cut on the bias, have ruching at the waist, feature asymmetrical details, or offer high-low hems. These special accents draw the eye away from trouble spots and provide extra coverage right where you need it. And as for flattering pants and bottoms, our Slimtacular® styles shape your best silhouette with our exclusive stretch technology. Many customers have said these miracle pants made them look 5 pounds lighter and 1 size smaller–without a hint of cling!

Should fashions for women over 50 include bright colors?

When it comes to your wardrobe's color palette, you should say yes to vibrant and bye-bye to black. Bright prints, patterns and shades are cheerful and energizing. Not only do they lift your mood but they also draw people to you. And not just during the sunny seasons either. The fall and winter months are ideal for jewel tones and colors with rich, radiant appeal. And should you need a quick reference for the season's best shades, let the garden be your guide. Traditionally, the flowers that bloom brightest during any time of year are your color cues for on-trend style. Which is why the pastel shades inspired by azaleas and bluebells are seen in spring, daisy and dahlia colors for summer, golden mum hues for fall, and vivid poinsettia red for winter.

Sequins, beading and embroidery are the embellishments our customers love most. You?ll see these fun accents at the necklines of our best-selling tops and tees, mixed with lace for our special occasion styles, and throughout all our accessories. What can we say? We love to bling! And we encourage every woman over 50 to wear clothes that match their sparkling personality.
