Summer Fashion Trends for 50+

With summer in full swing this brings about the dreaded (or beloved) heat! For many 50 plus women this may cause certain dilemmas with maintaining cool, stylish wardrobe options. But fear not! We have some great must-have style tips for our women readers with the latest summer trends.

Classic, Cotton Tee

Start off with a classic, cotton tee. This is the perfect, natural fabric to wear in hot and humid climates, because it is a breathable fabric that allows you to move freely without grabbing onto any areas you’d rather not have hugged. The classic fitting tee is a go-to for keeping an outfit simple and comfortable. Because of it’s diversity, you can pair a tee with any bottoms of your choosing, be it jeans, shorts, or a skirt!

Wide-Leg Linen Pant

Our next go to summer fashion trend is a wide leg linen pant. This style of pant is perfect for the heat due to the linen fabric allowing you to have plenty of room for staying active and stylish all summer without feeling sucked in by tight restricting materials. Another plus is the wide leg pant gives the look of a tall, lean figure. Pair it with some cute sandals for an effortless summer boho look.

Wrap Dress

Another go to favorite for us is the timeless Wrap Dress. This style of dress proves to never go out of style with its flattering fit on any women’s body type. It’s a perfect summer staple to beat the heat while staying stylish. Just make sure to stick to lighter fabrics such as Rayon, linen or silk and don’t be afraid to try bold patterns to play up the simplicity of the dress!

Bermuda Shorts

Last but certainly not least on our summer fashion must haves for women are the Bermuda shorts making a comeback this summer. These tailored shorts are great for giving women a put together casual look. Many women 50 or over are afraid to show some leg in the summer. But that should not be the case at all! These shorts are great for older women because they hit just a few inches above the knee giving a flattering shape while allowing you to get some sun on those legs!
