Top 5 Stylish Stapes for Women Over 50

Now that you’re over 50, did you think you couldn’t look stylish without spending a fortune on expensive clothes and accessories? Here’s a look at a few wardrobe staples that will have you looking on-trend, every day!

Dark Mid-Rise Jeans

Every woman who is over the age of 50 needs one great pair of dark jeans. A straight-legged pair of jeans will work wonders and can be extremely versatile, especially when paired with the right pair of shoes (think boots for a casual outing or pumps for something more formal). Before you buy your jeans, make sure they fit well around your hips and butt. As with any other piece of clothing, it’s best to size up and then have it tailored to fit you rather than squeeze into something a little too tight.

Fitted Pants

For occasions when jeans just won’t cut it, the right pair of pants can make a world of difference to your look. You can wear them in any way you want, but pairing them with a silky top and a jacket will instantly elevate your style. For a more casual look, pair them with a comfortable t-shirt. Also, don’t be afraid to experiment by choosing pants that are of a bright color or have a statement print.

Pencil Skirt

This wardrobe staple may come as surprise to some, but it’s the perfect piece of clothing that’s universally flattering on women. They’ve never gone out of style and you can pair them with pretty much anything. Ideally, you want to get one that is not too restrictive or tight, so you are still comfortable in them. Pair it with boots, pumps, or heeled shoes, based on the occasion to look your best. Ideally, look for one that hits your knee for a sophisticated look.


Cardigans are functional year-round, either as a light cover-up or to layer and keep yourself warm during cold weather. Make sure to buy cardigans that fit you well since baggy and slouchy pieces can look a little frumpy.


Turtlenecks are a timeless wardrobe piece and can look stylish and sophisticated. If you get one in a timeless color like white and black, it will be versatile and perfect as part of your day or nighttime ensemble.
