Avoid The Red

I mean the red pieces of clothing, definitely. Casual outfits for 50 year old women aren’t difficult to create but you need to consider some things.

The reason why you should avoid red color is the thing that, when women get older skin tone changes to red. Because capillaries are getting to be shown more on their face.

So, it’s better to stick to the darker colors. Like black, dark blue, green, and grey colors. Additionally, you can use accessories in different colors. Just make sure not to use the red so often.

But actually, that doesn’t mean that you have to stop wearing red clothes. Because I have seen many women, over even 55 years old looking perfect in red. Also, wearing dark clothes seems dramatic to some people.

So, my advice would be: wear whatever you feel comfortable in. Another piece of advice I have is to check out my new post, where you can find cool style tips to create modest outfits appropriate for your age.

One good example of it is Julia Roberts’s outfit, who is more than 50 years old (if you believe in Google, I do 😀 ).

Let me share some products I found for you on Amazon.

Before you buy anything, you can put on something red you already own and see how it looks on you. If you like it, then you can think about creating new outfits with red clothes.

Although red is the common color for Christmas. And so, you need to consider this as well.

I am the one who still included red clothes in my Christmas outfits for women over 50 article. Because I just couldn’t ignore them.

Forget The Fleeces

That also depends on your body type. If you can find a very well-fitted fleece cardigan, then you are good to go with it. But it’s not that easy.

So, that’s why you should avoid wearing them. The thing is, fleece jackets never show the right parts of your body.

But as always, you have a way out. And that’s to replace fleece jackets with crochet, cable, knit, or draped cardigans. Your preferred one, of course.

Another positive thing about turtlenecks is that it helps you to hide the loose skin under your chin (women call it “turkey neck”). But the little caution here is to never wear turtlenecks if you have a short neck and a big bust because it’ll just make you look fat and short.

By the way, I mentioned the big bust above. If you wonder what to wear if you wanna hide some big parts of your body, check out my older post about it. It’s very helpful as well.
