style secrets for women over 50

  1. Judy Holmes says:

    I loved this posting – great advice! I am not someone who wears jeans with holes. However I loved your patched jeans!

  2. Tracey says:

    Love your style blog as I am a gal of 60 yrs…
    Could you tell me more about the white lace dress on the first photo with the beautiful wrap,
    Who makes it and the label?

  3. Elizabeth Gould says:

    Bravo! I too am 62 and you’re spot on. I enjoy reading your articles. They’re well thought out, uplifting, and informative. Style isn’t just for twenty somethings. As a matter of fact women ‘at a certain age’ can do style much better than the girls.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      couldn’t agree more, elizabeth! thanks for stopping by.

      Me encanta tu estilo, te empecé a seguir en printerest, buscando estilos de pelo, de peinados, de color, luego me fuí por la moda, tus atuendos hermosos, y busque hasta que encontré tus publicaciones que me llegan a mi correo.
      Soy una mujer de 61 años, próxima a cumplir los 62 el 30 de mayo.
      Me identifico contigo y eres mi inspiración para vestir y combinar mi ropa.
      Eres una bella persona, gracias por inspirarme a ser bella a cualquier edad!

    Best ever- but no shopping information. I covet the butter yellow leather jacket and scarf you wore in the first shot- please give sources for those-please! I am 10 yrs. older than you, and they were 10 of big changes physically. It might be fun to feature a 70+ who isn’t radical or dowdy- just real with sags and lines and choosing to keep coloring her hair but wanting to look so put together and approachable but real and true. Thanks Beth- you are such fun!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      hi susan, many times on posts like this i pull from the blog archives. many of these photos are older so no relevant shopping links today, just style tips.

  5. Deirdre Cerasa says:

    Thank you for a terrific post! I still wear many of the styles I wore in my twenties and thirties, updated versions of course, and I just love to play with color.

  6. Carolyn says:

    Thank you once again for all the work you put into writing your blog. This is a great post.

  7. Sherree says:

    I love reading your blog everyday and especially today. It just seems at times we are never going to move forward in life with travel, weddings, games and so on but I know we will. And today with all your great outfits, you gave me the lift I needed. Thanks!!

  8. GL Gardener says:

    Spot on. Couldn’t agree more with your comments. I am turning 74 this year and love to dress well. Just purchased a pair of Converse high top sneakers to wear with my jeans and cigarette pants-so much fun! My son suggested it-he thinks they look great and I do too. One thing I would add would be taking care of our teeth which helps our smile. Our teeth naturally yellow as we age and bleaching them adds life to our smile. Great content.

  9. GG says:

    I like how you inspire fashion in mature women!
    As a woman @60+,
    I want to avoid “the frump”
    Love your ideas that help me use what is already in my closet!!!

  10. Thanks for the tips. Sometimes we
    forget it is the little things we do to
    be more confident and look modern.

  11. Dianne says:

    I love your blog, you tube and instagram. This post was so interesting for women over 50. I just turned 70 and have been a widow for quiet awhile. Also I stay at home and don’t go out very much since all of this virus has been going on. I seem to wear the same thing every week and need to change that because I have started feeling very frumpy and old. I would love some comments to this. Thanks again.

  12. Erin says:

    Great advice!!
    So glad you’re an advocate for women being their best, regardless of age.

  13. Patti says:

    Love your blog love your style. I am 10 yrs older, don’t look or act or it. Some days I feel it but pass on that. I love to get dressed up casual or dressy, love wearing jewelry and makeup. Really miss this during this pandemic. I love your styles and do copy them most by of the time. Keep sending can’t wait to be able to entertain and go out and entertain again.
    One rule I have during this whole thing is I do put eye liner and mascara on everyday, it makes me feel alive.
    Thank you again!

  14. Lisa says:

    So true on all counts

  15. Andrea says:

    What a timely and refreshing post, Beth.

    I would never have thought to wear the red plaid shirt tucked into a skirt – wow, wow, wow. I am determined, also to add the faux leather leggings to my wardrobe, now, as I have just added a black sweater tunic, and am in love with the look you did. Of course, we all, I am sure, love your leather jacket. It is so unique. The sleeves make my heart go pitter pat 🥰

    Thanks again for reminding us, that we should and can be, women in all our glory, regardless of age. 🥂

  16. Lynne A Johnson says:

    I do agree. It is best to dress your figure and fitness, not your age. You have very nice legs and the shorter skirt looks good on you. I find taking a quick photo or two is really helpful in determining if a style or outfit suits me. Thank you for a practical article.

  17. Susan says:

    Hi Beth, l love your blog, your wonderful sense of style and all your positive and achievable tips to stay current.
    I thought of one other item to keep current, maybe every five years, or so. It’s the frames on our eyeglasses for those of us who wear them all the time.
    I look forward to everyone one of your blog posts.

  18. Kathleen McDermott says:

    Excellent advice. I am a 67-year-old girl who will always love primping and dressing up. It never fails to delight me. Thank you for this post.

  19. Sylvia Espinoza says:

    Late Sunday Evening comment…FANTASTIC post and equally FANTASTIC comments! Want to encourage Blog Sister Diane who mentioned finding she wears the same thing every week. Time and again, I’ve stumbled onto new looks with the same pieces in the closet! Placing this item against that one, at times strictly by accident, and voila, a new look to try emerges! Of course, new items are always fun, too 🙂 Beth, embracing our age is sound advice, for in doing so, the resulting glow benefits us and those around us. Hugs! ~

  20. Gretchen says:

    I’ve enjoyed your daily posts and I love your fresh, classy style. Thank you!

  21. Jan says:

    Another great blog! For me, this whole gracefully aging begins with my mental attitude. I don’t want to close the door on new style ideas if I haven’t given them a try. I saw a dressy top once and thought it was far too fussy for me. Then I saw it featured on someone very similar to myself, and I loved it.
    I also do some facial exercises to help insure that I can have a quick, natural smile.
    Our age, our jean size or what the scale says are numbers that have plagued us for years. We just have to love ourselves first and then we can shine!

  22. Sandy says:

    Your choice in wardrobe looks so beautiful on you. Wish I felt the way you look. Beautiful

  23. Good Morning Beth

    Just to say how refreshing your blog is, your style and enthusiasm truly lift all our spirits. It’s great that you have made a career out of fashion and encourage so many to enjoy the everyday business of dressing or ‘thinking about the concept’ of looking good and working it into our lives, as I think it’s more important than many people think or believe! It is much more about how we feel about ourselves and why shouldn’t we look reasonably good every day or just Fabulous on certain days!

    I send my Best Wishes from Scotland and hope soon we can return to enjoying life ‘Covid Free’

    Hi Beth
    I am 70 Years old and love your blog.
    I make notes to what I like and add it to my shopping list, I then, when it is time go through my list and see what I must purchase for the season ahead. We are in our summer season now. I can’t buy everything but it helps me stick to the rule.

  25. Maggie Manna says:

    Nice post today Beth, good information and always goods looks!

    Thanks 🙏

  26. Lindsey A says:

    Well I feel like the baby here since I’m only 42 – but I love your classic style and writing, and because my mam was a geriatric nurse and I sometimes popped into work with her, I’ve always known that you can pick up great wisdom from those older and more experienced.

    And I think so many of these tips are right for women of all ages. Even in my 20’s I didn’t display all the goods – back then I wanted to look sexy, at least for my night out looks, but still knew that what looked best was to cover up all but one or maybe two “assets”.

    LOVE the empowerment message you have today. We should aim to be our best selves every day, and not hide from who we are in any way – our age, our appearance, our greys, whatever it is. Our life experience makes us who we are and should be valued. Much as I loved my 20’s and 30’s and had a lot of fun in them, I’d not go backwards when there is so much to look forwards to!

  27. rita says:

    You always look fantastic. Love your hairdos, clothes etc……However, we don’t all have trim figures. Could you include some clothing advice for the full figured….size 18, 20!

  28. Cathy says:

    I love your sense of style. While I know nothing is effortless, you make it seem so.

    I have a blast reading your blog everyday and finding new ways to incorporate some of my stuff into new outfits!

  29. Leslie Fu says:

    Women over 50 usually hesitate to try out various trends and style fashions as they don’t feel confident about when they were young. But age was never a barrier when it comes to being stylish and fashionable.
    These style secrets that you have shared will make women over 50 to style more freely and confidently. Thank you for sharing this information with us.

    Thank you!

  31. Robin says:

    This was my favorite of all your blogs—-so far! 🙂 I loved all the different outfit choices, and I loved the comments about dressing for the occasion. I guess you could say that everything was applicable to me. I am 74 and still enjoy having fun with clothes, jewelry, make-up, and shoes. I don’t try to copy my beautiful daughters-in-law, but I do want to look as nice as I can. Thanks for your encouraging words!!!
