Five inspiring women over 50

We’re lucky enough to live in an age of some seriously inspirational older women, who have done much to prove that reaching 50 doesn’t mean an end to glamour, success and sophistication.

Recent research has shown that only a third of women aged 50-74 consider their age when shopping for clothes – a figure that stacks up when we consider the number of glamorous older women who have been given prominent modelling contracts for major high street retailers in recent years. This surge in 50+ role models means that older women are now investing in trendier pieces, and steering clear of the dowdy clothes that were previously the staple of the mature women.

Here are some of the women we have to thank for blazing a trail for 50+ style and glamour:

Jerry Hall

The former Mrs Jagger still looks amazing, and proves that glamour is often as simple as a slick of red lipstick. Her style is simple and chic, and includes black suits and tailored jackets.

Helen Mirren

Dame Helen has been flying the flag for over-50’s style for many years, and still looks fantastic, as some of her recent bikini shots revealed. She nails red carpet glamour by refusing to shy away from showing off her assets, without being inappropriate. She looks great in evening maxi dresses with classic accessories.

Anna Wintour

The editor of US Vogue, Anna Wintour always looks stylish and perfectly turned out. She favours tailored clothes with sharp lines, like pencil skirts, but is also known for her huge fur coats, shades and trademark blunt bob. She is living proof that style, glamour and success are more potent than ever after 50.

Kim Cattrall

In her role in Sex and the City, Kim was always the sexy one – and she’s just as glamorous in real life. She pulls off the sexy look brilliantly, with low plunging necklines and fitted dresses.

Diane Keaton

Diane is known for her stylish and effortlessly cool take on menswear, and she still looks as fabulous as ever. She wears hats and masculine tailoring, pulling it all together with a great pair of heels.

Twiggy

With her M&S campaigns, Twiggy has bounced back into the spotlight as a stylish 50+ lady. She’s been credited with helping older women feel that they can still wear fashionable clothes, and look fantastic in the process.

Fashion talk – Is this a trend?

Tucking in shirts only in the front be a trend?

I don’t think that this is a trend; it’s just something you do when you consider the shirt is better tucked in or just left out. It’s nice when it seems effortless, but when you go through town and see everyone is doing this same thing…

You can find this type of style among the teens and even for few, this might be a habit. Any way it not so vulgar and any one can try this (both male and female).




Fashion Talk – Do you have to follow fashion trends?

I think a trend begins with a definite style. It can be a range from a celebrity trying something a certain way, to a common Joe or Jill who disreputably wears something that becomes fashionable or fun. It continues with others wanting to sport that equivalent look. And when it seems like several people are sporting a specific style… you got a trend.

The base in fashion is inspiration. Without inspiration, you’re basically just throwing together clothes. Inspiration may even come along with pieces inspired by celebrities, musicians, athletes, etc. I am even remembering the late 1990s of message T-shirts saying matter like “I Have the Golden Ticket” and “Dump Him.” But I think for it to become a trend, you have to see lots of people commits one style or wearing a certain style in different ways. Like when many of people wore skulls, it was because someone got looks to sell, and it caught on with people.


Do you have to follow trends? Absolutely not. But if there is a style you love, I’m sure you’ll want to sport someone else’s look and style with your own personal flair.

GENUINE TRENDS, now and then genuine don’t always mean following design cues from fashion designers and fashion stylists. It can be from normal people who probably aren’t even trying to look stylish or cool. As the name of an old movie suggests, “Gold is Where You Find It.”

I don’t have a maxi skirt, but I recently unearthed a vintage maxi dress from my mum’s wardrobe and I finally plucked up the courage to wear it out yesterday (I’m very small, about 5’3″, so I’ve always felt that a maxi would swamp me) and I got loads of compliments.
