As women over 50, we’re often told that we should ignore trends, and stick with “the classics,” or what we know works for us. Well…yes and no. While I agree that personal style doesn’t mean blindly following trends, I do think looking current and modern means keeping an eye on trends and incorporating them strategically into our wardrobes.
Today I’m joining up with some fabulous blogger friends to share our favorite fall fashion trends. I can’t wait to see what styles they’re rocking this fall! Check out the links at the bottom of this post.
Wearable fall fashion trends for women over 50
Here are a few of the trends in fall collections that I’m adding to my wardrobe.
Knitwear is “having a moment” this fall. Matched sets, ribbed knits, statement cardigans…there’s something for everyone. What I’m loving in particular are half-zip and polo sweaters.
They’re a great way to add structure and polish without stiffness.
More elevated sweaters…
Dark wash denim
After wearing only medium and lighter wash denim for the last few months, I now find darker, non-distressed washes are looking fresh again. They feel more polished and “ready for Prime Time.” Here are a few options:
Shoes and accessories are a great way to incorporate trends. Lug soles have been making an appearance for a few seasons, but have really taken off this fall. I love these funky patent leather lug sole boots from Paul Green (gifted). They’re comfortable as heck, too! For a limited time, save 15% from Paul Green with code FEMME15
While head-to-toe color was shown in several Fall 21 collections, I like to stick to one bright color as an accent to my neutrals. Jackets, coats, sweaters, and scarves are great candidates for a color pop during the cooler months.
Show me the colors!
