Summer Fashion Trends Women Over 60 Can Rock With Confidence

Summer Fashion Trends Women Over 60 Can Rock With Confidence

With summer right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to look at some of the best summer fashion trends that women over 60 can rock with confidence. Great style does not have an age stamp…unless you want to put one on it. We’re old enough to wear what we love and make the call about what we feel confident wearing. I’ve already embraced a few that are quickly becoming favorites.

You won’t catch me wearing stilettos and a body-conscious dress, but that’s my preference. If I see a woman rocking that look joyously, more power to her. She does her, I do me, and you should do you. That said, it’s nice to know what’s new so you can incorporate some into your look for a fresh feel each season.

Preppy Chic

This one isn’t new either, but life has changed after the big lockdown, and we’ve discovered the comfort of matching sets. It’s also more acceptable to dress in a sportier style for all but the dressiest of occasions. You’ll see more clothing options with sporty details like the varsity collar, the polo shirt, and color blocking.

Monochromatic Dressing

I’ve always been a huge fan of tonal and monochromatic dressing which they’re now calling out as a trend for summer. You can do this easily by purchasing a matching set or mixing and matching different shades within an outfit. I find it makes dressing a breeze. Add interest by choosing different textures in similar colored pieces.

Soft White

We’ll see plenty of bright, stark white this summer, but softer options are becoming plentiful. It’s exciting to see ecru, winter-white, alabaster, bone, cream, and whisper-white at most retailers. Unless you’ve been typed as a winter in the seasonal color analysis systems, these softer whites are more flattering against your complexion. White dresses are also trending this summer, as are embellishments like crochet or fringe.

I have fully embraced the softer whites this summer and will be adding pieces to my wardrobe while I can. My ivory silk shirt and tile white jeans look like they were made for each other and my alabaster tote is the perfect shade to carry all summer.

Florals

The floral trend is focusing on roses this summer. Many women love floral patterns and have always incorporated them into their wardrobes. The selection will be plentiful this summer and I would encourage you to look for ones in proportion to your features. Giant prints can be overpowering on petite women, and very tiny prints can be aging.

Sheer, Eyelet, and Chrochet Looks

Sheer, eyelet, and crochet looks are popular every summer and trending heavier this year. I’m not a huge fan of eyelet for myself because much of it feels too “twee” for my style. I have been spotting some in more grown-up shapes and darker colors, which does feel more up my alley….so I never say never. While you might think these trends are hard for those of us over 50 to work into our wardrobe, there are a lot of options that will work. It’s all in how you style it and the options you choose.

From Cherry Red to Icy Blue and a lot of colors in between…this summer’s color trends are all over the place. Anything from neon brights to soft pastels will work. Finding pieces in bright, cheery prints that bring a dose of happiness to your outfit is an easy way to incorporate this trend.

Trends add a modern vibe to our outfits over 60, but we should only incorporate the ones that speak to our style so we feel confident wearing them.

Are any of these trends speaking your style language this year?
