Festive Over 50 Fashion

Over 50 and feeling flummoxed about what to wear to your holiday soiree? The internets are filled with 'experts' who will be thrilled to tell you how hideous you look if you don't 'tone down' your choices and 'age gracefully.' Don't wear glitter! Don't wear prints! Don't wear bright colors!


You do you, sister. What you wear is entirely your business. What better time of year to sparkle than the holidays? If you're looking for some festive frippery to with which to festoon yourself for the season, we've got you covered. Literally. And if anyone has anything snarky to say about it, you tell them to kiss your mistletoe.

If the Ugly Christmas Sweater isn't your thing, might we suggest this chic substitute? Have as many egg nogs and cookies as you please while looking effortlessly chic.

This. Dress. Is. Fabulous. Need we say more? Add a cape and prepare to dazzle, darling.

Or pair this retrofabulous printed skirt...

With this sleeveless turtleneck...

And this bolero jacket, which comes in 16 colors!

(The crafty gal in me feels the addition of some flat back hot fix Swarovski crystals applied with a hot fix applicator tool would not be a bad idea on the skirt or the sweater...or dare I suggest on both? Oh, I dare.)

Don't leave your feet out in the cold! Slip them into these over the knee boots from Sam Edelman, we love the corset lace details on the back.

If you want to elevate the situation, tip the heights fantastic in these bedazzled lovelies from Kate Spade.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star. Take these sparkling flats from Kenneth Cole for a spin around the galaxy!

Or perhaps you'd prefer to stop traffic in a shocking pink wool trench. Because you can.

Need a statement cape? This will do! Fun with faux fur, in five fab colors!

Ravishing red coat, anyone? Feast your eyes on this vintage inspired holiday perfection.

You're never too old to sparkle or to wear what you please. Don't let anyone tell you anything different, my dear.

Shine on, super nova.



  1. Love this! Happy 1/2 birthday to me today. 6 months to the BIG one! Onward Sister.
