Styles for women over 50

1.Fitted Blazer:

A blazer is a key part of a French woman’s wardrobe and should be a key part of yours too!

This is a staple that you can find in every over 50 French woman’s wardrobe. The best part about having a fitted blazer is that you can pair it with anything from a basic T-shirt to a camisole or a straight Jean.

A blazer transforms your outfit immediately and gives it a chic, sophisticated look. A blazer in a neutral color such as black, gray, or navy, is best paired with jeans for that put-together look. Whether you choose to wear boots or heels, you can’t go wrong with this outfit combo!

3. High Waisted Jeans:

This is a classic piece available in every over 50 French woman’s wardrobe. It is a perfect definer that gives your waist definition and makes your legs look longer. Considering colors, a dark high waisted jean is more polished while light denim gives a more casual vibe.

6. Minimalist Jewelry:

Whatever you do, avoid wearing huge statement necklaces and earrings as they make you look cheap and unsophisticated. Wear minimalist jewelry instead, or like I said previously, just wear a wristwatch!
