5 Flattering Silhouettes for Women Over 50

  1. Cathy says:

    You have mentioned that you are 5’8″ and so I am wondering where you find pants that are long enough. I am 5’6″ with long legs and I am finding it near impossible to source full length pants that are long enough, even with a flat shoe. I am not talking about the prevalence of cropped pants, that is a separate issue. I used to rely on Talbots Long sizes but they seem to have discontinued them and besides, Talbots quality has declined so much.

      Have you tried Ann Taylor? They have a great fit and carry Tall sizes. Ralph Lauren is another great source for pants that are longer. Vince or Theory are also
      great sources for pants.

    Great advice and very helpful. I have been struggling with what to wear and this helps even for us petites. Thanks

    An informative post. I’m 5’1″ (used to be 5’2″); I’m shrinking. I’m with you on everything here except the fit and flare skirts. I find that they are not flattering and all, and I’ve tried because I like the look. A-line dresses are sometimes questionable too. It depends on how much they flare out. I love that red A-line dress you feature.
    I’m going to have to go on a “try on” trip!
