we’re continuing (and ending) with our final installment of my top outfit picks of the decade. today, we’re bringing you a yearly retrospective: the top outfits for women over 50 in 2019. 2019 was a quite the year: so many highs, and equally many lows. as some of you might know, this is the year my oldest got married. it’s also the year mr. style passed away. this is also the year we brought on junior style and my daughter-in-law Kelly to work at the blog.
impossible to put this year into meaningful words, really. so i will leave it at this: thank you, my readers, for all of your support over this past year. the outpouring of love continues to sustain me. we ended 2019 strong, and we have plans to continue to grow in 2020. so without further ado, here are the top 5 outfits of 2019.
the first outfit up is taken from how to wear timeless classics: crewneck, trenchcoat, and skinny jeans. and it starts with a basic cashmere crewneck in a basic color – gray. this year i am loving Everlane cashmere sweaters. the price point is great as is the quality. and i like the slim fit that isn’t snug.
the sweater is paired with a stretch high rise cigarette jean from Everlane. this straight leg jean features a hidden button fly and smoothing front pockets. it’s also made of an innovative fabric that has stretch yet has an authentic denim look. this is my first time wearing these high rise jeans. the fabric has some give but doesn’t end up looking saggy and baggy by the end of the day. typically, i wear size 8 or 29, but i sized up to a 30 for these jeans.
coming in fourth today is a recent outfit taken from cashmere from head-to-toe | thanksgiving gift guide. it’s been all about J.Crew for me this fall and winter. today, i’m sporting a matching camel cashmere sweater layered with a cashmere sweater-blazer.
an easy way to break up this chromatic pairing is with a color pop. i’ve chosen to do so with this silk scarf from Talbots. i’ve been loving the silk scarves this year. and if you’re looking for some more ideas, this one from Talbots is one of our best sellers.
