I can’t say that I have my finger firmly on the pulse of fashion. I tend to wear what I like, what I feel comfortable in and what I believe suits me. I almost fight against wearing what’s ‘on trend’. What can I say – I’m a bit of a rebel. But it’s been pretty hard to ignore the cold shoulder looks that have hit the high street firmly between the eyes. So I just had to try one.
Fashion Over 50 – Cold Shoulder Top
I’ve actually been thinking about what is and isn’t wearable when it comes to trends, especially from the point of view of fashion over 50. Now I have to be clear here and say that I’m not saying that anyone should or shouldn’t wear whatever the hell they like, no matter how many candles are on their cake. The point I’m making is this: what is on trend, comfortable and flattering for me (personally) to wear as a woman in her 50’s.
So I thought I might dip my toe in the water and try out a few pieces that are ‘in’ at the moment and tell you what I think of them.
Trousers – Florence And Fred / Cold Shoulder Top – Florence And Fred / Sandals – Florence And Fred / Sunhat – Peacocks / All Jewellery – Gifts from Mr Chic (By the way, this post isn’t sponsored by Tesco. I just happened to pick this whole outfit up on a food shopping trip – as you do.)
Shop Similar Styes
Now I have to be honest here and say that my skin is in pretty good nick. I have some issues, after all my bods been around for over 50 years, but on the whole, it’s not bad. But I think, even if I were concerned about the skin on my upper arms, I’d experiment more with this look. It’s a great way of showing a bit of flesh, yet covering any sign of bingo wings.
So for fashion over 50, I’d give it a thumbs up. What do you think? Great for fashion over 50 or one to leave on the shelf? Leave me a comment and let me know.
