Fashion and style have no age. Some trends are not reserved for the youngest and others for the not so young, contrary to popular belief. The most important thing is that you find yourself in your dress style, that it looks like you. After 50, you may not want to embrace the crop top trend popular with Generation Z.

Just take a plain and good quality model: it will fit you perfectly. Any trend can look good on you after 50, as long as you feel good about it. Here are 4 fashion tips to stay stylish after 50.
1 / Focus on quality accessories
Accessories play a role that can be crucial in building a look. They can allow an outfit to be stylish, original, chic… They adapt to you and your desires. If you dress with jeans, a white t-shirt and a black blazer (an effective and basic look), you can give it a boost thanks to a beautiful pair of golden earrings like hoops, a set of necklaces, a colored belt or in nude tones and a nice pair of shoes. Want to be comfortable? Sneakers are perfect: they can be white or colored. If you prefer heels, bet on mules, they are popular.
Beautiful accessories can also make a basic black dress more elegant or more original. Again, a beautiful leather belt, beautiful jewelry and a stylish pair of shoes will make the difference. This winter, high boots are very trendy, and they go perfectly with a beautiful black dress. In winter, other accessories can be worn, such as hats or scarves. Choose these preferably in wool or cashmere so that they are warm. At 50, you can afford anything on the accessory side, take advantage of it.
2 / Have good basics
A great wardrobe doesn’t totally depend on what’s inside. It also depends on the quality of the parts inside. The trend is for thoughtful shopping and more for fast fashion. No more thoughtless purchases: bet on timeless pieces that can be kept for a long time. You can find them for all budgets. What are the basic pieces to have?
- A slightly oversized black blazer
- A long black coat
- Raw straight jeans
- Black jeans
- A white shirt
- A warm high-neck sweater
- A white t-shirt
- A pair of ankle boots
- A pair of mules
- A pair of sneakers
- Black flare or palazzo pants
3 / Try the total look
At 50, you can still embrace the trends. One of the hottest trends, both in summer and in winter, is the total look. It is a question of composing an outfit with pieces of the same color or with very similar colors, such as shades. For example, you can bet on a nude look with brown, beige, taupe colors in winter: it’s very chic. The total white look can also be very bright and highlight you. The total black look is very easy to adopt and looks great on everyone. Finally, you can bet on total colorful looks, like Kate Middleton who appeared with a stunning red outfit.
4 / Wear clothes in which you are comfortable
You don’t have to suffer to (feel) beautiful. A trendy but comfortable outfit may very well make you feel strong and beautiful. You don’t have to pull yourself up on four-inch heels if you want to be comfortable. No need to wear tight tops if you don’t feel right in them. Finally, you don’t have to force yourself to adopt a trend to try and stay on trend. The most important thing is to listen to your desires and to follow your tastes. If you love jeans, then feel free to wear them: just because you’re 50 doesn’t mean you can’t go for a stylish denim look.
