Seems counterintuitive for a woman to put so many restrictions on other women and claim they are being supportive and helpful. Why are we still so bent on telling women what to do? Are we so jealous of the hot 50 year olds in bikinis that we have to use peer pressure tactics in order to compensate for our own insecurities?

We should be celebrating each other! Can I add, what the heck is wrong with florals??? Will be extraordinary if people think of you as been 20s now that is a 30 year difference and that is amazzzzing!

I just turned 50, I wear a size 3, or 26", I am very active, run a horse breeding farm, burns a lot of calories. I love wearing short skirts, low tops, and heels, plus bikinis. My favorite jeans are by Miss Me. I have had a couple of plastic surgery procedures, most people guesstimate me to be I am updating my wardrobe, adding some leather pieces, and nice sweaters, but I will dress young as long as I can!

I found that some of the comments are a little offensive. Just because I am a senior citizen doesn't mean I am fat and have body issues. I don't need elastic waistbands or long dresses as my shape is fine. I wear a size 6. Petite outfits that are age appropriate is what I was looking for. I have no role model in celebrities over fifty. They are slim and have people do their hair and makeup.

None of these tips quite worked for me. I gained fifteen pounds this last year. No, I guess not! Who doesn't wear jeans? Stopped wearing them after age I just don't like them, and neither did Coco Chanel. I'm 50 and my bikini days are not over. I also love florals. While I appreciate guidelines, a list of no-nos box a woman's creativity and expression.

Was always the youngest in my group, and just like that, I'm the oldest. So I can't ask my friends and don't live in an area where I can look to what others are wearing, nor spend a fortune, even on a classic piece. I also made a commitment to myself to shop American, so thank you for the head start.

I agree with Catherine below. As a 51 year old, I like to wear what I want and that includes shopping at American Eagle Outfitter for jeans. I avoid low -waist jeans, but find they have a great variety of mid-rise to high-rise casual jeans at reasonable prices.

I also own two pairs of Doc Martens shoes that I adore - one plain black and one floral - they are fun. Don't think it really matters - I say wear what you like and feel comfortable in. I'm almost 51, have great skin thanks to genetics, have been active all my life, have long dark hair in great condition with minimal greys I still wear bikinis and short skirts and get compliments from both genders. I do think 50 and over should avoid florals, too much lace, and hair accessories with the exception of a barrette or hair band for a low ponytail.

Much of the advice is okay, but in my opinion the need for advice is greater among younger women. Where I live, most women past 50 look far more stylish than many women in their twenties and thirties. And why do you say that "of course, our bikini days are over now"? I know women in their seventies and even eighties who still look great in a bikini. Interesting comments regarding 'appropriate' dress.

I'm finding at 62 I can still pull off the occasional tight, low cut, etc. Also shapewear is a must have as gravity will have its way! Loving many of the tips and advice on this forum. Whether we like it or not there are situations and places that require a certain way of dressing.

Although this site is directing the issue toward mature women, I often see younger women who dress shabbily, inappropriately, and too provocatively. Some people in the name of freedom of style proclaim that a person should be able to wear whatever they like, wherever they like.

But this is not only an irresponsible attitude, but also wishful thinking. We all know that we dress one way for the beach, another way for church, funerals, weddings, etc. One would hope that as a woman matures, so does her sense of style. Gracefully say good-bye to the micro minis you wore at 16, skimpy half tops and very low rise pants that expose your midriff, seductive plunging necklines and sausage tight clothing that desperately cling to the bygone days of your youth.

When you were four, you dressed like a four-year-old. When you were twenty, you dressed like a twenty-year-old. And now that you are over 50, explore the selection of beautiful casual and elegant clothes available for this age group.

Cultivate a style that makes you look attractive, comfortable, and chic. Be a role model for the younger generation. Let them see how a mature and confident woman should present herself.

You'll look and feel so much better. I totally disagree with previous comment. Women over 50 say they feel invisible - maybe that's because they dress to be invisible. I see a lot of women dressing dumpy which ages them more and I see a lot of women who try to be young by dressing too young. How you dress I forms people's first opinion - either confident, elegant, fun, full of life or dumpy, old, tired, desperate to be young, etc.

There's nothing shaming in thinking about if your style makes you feel good! This whole thing makes me cringe. Wear what you want! Your old enough to know what You like. So what if I have crapey skin. It shows I've lived. I'm not going to cover up my age because it makes the young people uncomfortable. It's where we are all headed. Might as well get comfortable with it. Maybe we should learn to focus on the things that matter, like how we treat each other and stop shaming people about their appearance.

Ladies NEVER wear these as our 'girls' are not where they used to be, they have gone South, and wearing a tube top or strapless top simply makes them go More South! Thank you for the great tips.

A tip from my side I find I have a much harder time finding clothes I enjoy wearing these days. I do need a bit more help than I did when I was younger. As a French woman, I would recommend scarves as accessories But, I suppose a 30 yr old woman like me, can also wear such stuff. Why to wait till 50? Definitely must pass this along to my mother! I feel that women over 50 just need jeans that are not too baggy; many women at that age need jeans that are fitted, not too skinny or too loose.

As a woman over 50 myself I know how important it is to always look your best. However I wish that some plus size options had been included. I was a size 2 at 25 but certainly not after menopause. Best tip I ever got from a woman in her 70s was to NOt wear peasant style or boho style tops for work -- her reasoning: Stop looking like a peasant.

I was just thinking about this very subject and just had a conversation with a friend about this. We are both way over 50 and have grandchildren. We were joking about how our grandmothers wore babushkas and housecoat styled dressed and looked liked grandma's.

We were glad that they are a thing of the past. We were marveling at how so many of us grandmas look so much more modern and younger. I am bookmarking this and need some ideas for new clothes I used to be in marketing and sales and so was 'on show' every day and had to find clothes that didn't mind being crushed sitting in a car or behind a desk all day, and always managed to somehow look fresh and confident.
