How to dress when you are in your fifties?
Clothes adapted to its morphology
Whether you are thin or round, large or small, there are certain rules to follow when choosing clothing suited to your body type . For this, you must first define what is the type of your figure. For example, if you have a figure 8 with rather generous shapes and hips and shoulders aligned, it is very important to focus on the size and / or neckline. This type of silhouette can very easily wear skirts with a skater cut and a tight waist, fitted blouses, heart caches etc.
Conversely, if you have an A-shaped body with a well-defined waist and shoulders narrower than your hips, the way you highlight yourself will be completely different. For these types of body shapes, we will draw attention to the upper body only with brightly colored tops, V necklines or even trapeze or skater dresses.
See how easy it can be to know how to dress when you know its morphology. Take a few minutes to determine which silhouette suits you and you will quickly get a set of advice on the choice of clothes to wear.
Wear high waisted flowing jeans and pants
Whether you choose jeans or pants, always choose it high. While it’s not impossible for you to have a wasp waist at your age, most women over the age of 50 face some slack in the lap belt. Nothing better then a high waist pants that will sheath and hide any unsightly bulges. Jeans are a timeless piece of clothing. Whether you are 20 or 50, it is an essential fashion piece. After fifty, we will often favor raw jeans over light jeans. Not only will they go with many more colors but they will be more flattering for the silhouette.
Opt for long flowing tunics or blouses
The ideal to appear thinner is to opt for long tunics . Buy in different colors so you can easily match them. You can also choose long shirts or modern but flowing blouses.
Wear flared skirts
Skirts at any age, yes! No question of leaving aside her femininity. But be careful to choose the right cut! To flatter your figure, opt for a flared skirt cut. Bodycon skirts will tend to emphasize your hips and thighs while flared skirts will beautifully draw your waist while hiding the top of your hips and thighs. The ideal is a slightly flared skirt in dark and solid colors like black, gray or burgundy. We choose it at the length above the knees.
Choose straight dresses
Same advice for dresses, we opt for modern and flattering fifty-something dresses by choosing cuts that stop just above the knees. We choose it with sleeves and rather straight cut.
Forget too thick stitches
The very warm knitwear, vests and knits of the Kechua or Damart type are certainly very pleasant essentials for cocooning in your sofa in the middle of winter, but they tend to age very easily. We prefer thin cardigans with a structured cut to give allure and elegance to its look.

Low boots in brown or black colors could quickly become essential for you in winter. Very elegant, you will find all shapes but one of the best options is the cealsea boots. Wear them with raw jeans or leggings and a tunic for a modern, urban style.
A pair of heels not too high for special occasions
Heels yes but be careful not to choose it too high. It can quickly become uncomfortable and cause back pain. He just found the right length of heels.
