Over 50 Fashion & Style Tips
I keep an eagle eye (with the aid of my glasses) on all the latest HOT fashion trends. As a 55 year old fashionista, I often find myself wondering…. can I wear it? Should I wear it?
In today’s post, we are talking about two smoking hot trends which I decided to test drive to see if a mature woman could pull the look off without looking like she rummaged through her daughter’s closet.
Seen on women of every age from Paris to New York and all cities in between. The statement tee comes in many forms, from hilarious: “Sorry I can’t, I have to walk my unicorn” to a shout out to your favorite brand.

I took a fashion cue from one of my fashionista friends from Australia, the lovely Zilla, who must have an entire closet devoted to her super cool tees. Zilla is also one of our She’s Got Style global fashionistas and you can see more of her stylish looks HERE.
For my statement t-shirt, I’m showing some love to one of my all time fave lines, Chanel. The tee I chose is a classic and basic white v-neck (which will go with just about everything).
To experiment with fashion trends that might be gone in a few years, opt instead for designer knock offs and faux leathers. Jonet
Another trend we are seeing from runways, to magazines and bloggers galore is the over the knee boot. I hesitated on this trend for two reasons… I wondered if it was age appropriate, and being slightly vertically challenged at 5’2″, should I really be wearing them?
Since I wasn’t sure the over the knee boot would work for me, I decided to go the affordable route and opted for a pair of black faux suede boots from Target. As it turned out, the boots were not only a great buy, I actually love the look! Cost under $40.00 SHOP HERE!
I must say, I was surprised at the fun I had combining these two trends. From one mature woman to another, don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and take some hot trends for a test drive. Challenge yourself to try new pieces and looks. Then give yourself a serious high five for taking a fashion risk or two! After all, fashion and style should be fun.
As it turns out, my trend experiment resulted in a power couple. An outfit with a sprinkle of attitude, that I’m happy to say, is indeed age appropriate!
