What should women over the age of 60 wear?

We like to challenge that old stereotype of how “women of a certain age” should dress. A new year (or a recent birthday!) is the perfect time to experiment, re-invent or flaunt the style you’ve learned from being here six decades or more. “Aging gracefully” can also mean “aging fashionably”—so read on for some ideas to make this your most stylish year yet.

Update your layers 

Having solid layering options is a must in every woman’s wardrobe. But don’t succumb to frumpy ones that hide too much of your figure. Instead, try out some fun new trends like wrap coats or cropped jackets.

Find some fab footwear

The easiest way to freshen up your look is to start from the bottom up with some new kicks. This season’s offerings are all about wearability, with block heels and pointy toe flats leading the charge. The short boot, or “bootie” is another foot-friendly pick that is stylish and comfortable for women of all ages.


Old is new again

The return of retro favorites like culotte pants, midi skirts and other items means you get a second shot at pieces you loved decades ago. They’re an easy style to add into your wardrobe mix, no matter what your age. Plus, they pair well with equally classic pieces you may already have in your closet, like striped shirts and casual blazers.

Reboot Your Daily Denim

Stuck in a (grand)mom-jean rut? Make trying a different style one of your New Year’s resolutions. Switch it up with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans (yes, you CAN wear them!) Or rock out a new dark wash or pair of colored skinnies.
