What Should a 50 Year Old Woman Wear this Summer?
Growing older can be challenging for women in a world where signs of ageing seem unwelcome. In films, magazines, fashion, on social media – everyone seems to be obsessed with youth. And yet, older women are often more independent, confident and have had more time to discover what they really want.
Life begins at 50, some would say, and at Goddiva we couldn’t agree more. Get ready for some sunshine and have a look at this short list of flattering clothing items for women in their 50s to wear this Summer:
No two bodies are the same, but there’s a tendency for certain types of necklines, such as square or scoop shaped, to not sit that well with mature women. On the other hand, off the shoulder and V-necks suit very well, as well as necklines like the one in this Halter Neck Satin Blouse (£32.00).
White and even translucent shirts are often very flattering for women in their 50s, especially if they are not so formal, featuring details such as pleats or ruffles. This White Shirt with Long Ruffled Sleeves (£50.00) it’s quite elegant when all its buttons at the front are fastened. It has a sort of college girl vibe to it, but very classy!
When it comes to tops for summer evenings, women in their 20s and early 30s can easily wear a loose oversized striped jumper instead of a coat and it will look good. But that laid-back top may not flatter the more experienced women. Instead, cardigans can have the same effect and they are by far more refined. You can wear our Camel Wide Sleeve Cardigan (£45.00) with its buttons fastened, for a coverall jumper kind of effect, or unfastened, like an ordinary knitted coat
At this stage of life, long skirts may let you down. But that doesn’t mean you should say goodbye to them just yet. There are fashionable skirts that will make the most of your body and legs in women of all ages. Such as this Navy Blue Satin Loose Skirt (£34.00) with its asymmetrical high-low edge and seam that divides the skirt – the upper part falls straight whilst the lower part opens up like a bell.
Skirts with a Split
Alternatively, there is another common skirt design that ensures to take all the ‘weight’ away from long skirts for women of 50 years old and up: skirts with splits. Whether it is a maxi dress or long skirt, there’s nothing like a flirty flash of leg to make you shine. The greatest thing about it, is that it looks beautiful in any body shape and suits women with thinner and curvier legs alike – it shows all it needs to show but nothing more, what a great design that is, huh? The options are endless, but have a look at this Maxi Leg Split Skirt (£32.00).
It’s time to embrace the spectrum of experiences and moments that makes you, you. At the end of the day, age is just a number and the right thing to wear is what makes you feel good. Tune into the new arrivals at Goddiva and pick your favourites.
