We are thrilled here at Fashionoverfifty.com to be collaborating with the wonderful women at Betterafter50.com to bring fashion ideas and inspiration to even more women over 50! Aren’t we all a bit curious about what is hot, what is trending in the world of fashion, and how we can adapt it for our stage of life? We are here to help and inspire you!
The beautiful styles featured above are from Fashion Week Spring 2015. Fashion week was last fall, but NOW is the time to start thinking about what’s in store for Spring (and isn’t it also great to think about winter being over?) I have no doubt you will notice that the featured models are not even close to 50 (and no, we don’t expect any of you to go braless, either!) Please understand that designers do not use models over 30, let alone 50. These fashions are meant for your inspiration— forget about the age (and weight and perky breasts) of the models. Look at the cut, the color, the fabrics, the trends.
Just because we are Over Fifty doesn’t mean we don’t want to be “in the know”. In the stores, you will be able to find less expensive designers who will copy these styles. You can buy an investment piece and mix it with something from your favorite “fast fashion” establishment such as H&M, Zara, or wherever you like to shop.
The idea is to have Fun. If you have put together any great ensembles from Couture and “fast fashion”, please send us a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to share your tips.
