Avoid The Red

I mean the red pieces of clothing, definitely. Casual outfits for 50 year old woman 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 are getting 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 to not 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. And 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 liked it, then you can think about creating new outfits with red clothes.

Forget The Fleeces

That also depends on your body type. If you can find the very well-fitted fleece cardigan, then you are good to go with. 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.

Colorful print, especially flower print skirts will make you younger as well. Generally, always try to wear bright colors at your age.

In my town, not only 50-60 years old women but also everyone wears black clothes. And believe me, that’s disappointing. I can’t stand that.

So, not always, but sometimes try to look wear bright and sparkling outfits. Remember, age is just numbers.

Go For Turtlenecks

There is a newer post on wardrobe essentials for women over 50, so you can check it out. You will discover great pieces to have in your closet and also some ways to wear them for a whole year.

Turtleneck tops are very practical to wear every day. It can be paired with casual jeans and booties, or classy pants and flats. Depending on your daily events once again.

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 never wear turtlenecks if you have a short neck and a big bust because it’ll just make you look fat and short.

Btw, 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.
