Fall Style Ideas for Women Over 50 ~ Neutral Lookbook 2013

Fall in New England means it’s time to get out the sweaters, boots, and leather, but once you hit 50 it can become harder to find pieces that are “age appropriate” and still fit your personality. As we get older, women’s weight can shift to the mid-section, and we experience hot-flashes necessitating a shift in how we dress. Layered clothing that skims over the mid-section along with more fitted pieces that accentuate our best features are key.

Give a simple tank top and sweater more edge with distressed jeans and combat boots. Hot flashes are handled in style with a sleeveless top under an open sweater. Add a colorful scarf to soften and bring the look to life.
