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!

2. A Button-down Shirt:

Whether it’s chiffon or cotton, a high-quality button-down shirt is an iconic piece every woman should own.

To rejuvenate your outfit, pair it with a simple dark blue pair of jeans and a pair of sneakers, and you’re good to go!

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.

Every woman should have a classic leather handbag in their closet. This is a great way to accessorize any outfit, especially a black one so that you can pair it with any outfit! Depending on your budget, you can opt for any size you want.

5. Statement watch:

You should invest in a timeless wristwatch if you don’t have one already. When you’re in doubt about how to accessorize, just wear your wristwatch; it’s the perfect accessory for any outfit

How To be Chic

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!

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!
Incredible afternoon with a true local fashion expert

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!
