Women get more beautiful with age, you may not hear that very often but it’s true. As women mature and get older they get more confident which is mainly brought on by life experience. Just imagine a teenage girl and how insecure she can be, unsure of who she is, so worried about what others might think of her and floundering to find her own self image. A mature woman has been through all that and has persevered to become elegant, confident and self assured. I personally have always admired women over 50 who carry their age with a sense of pride, style as well as class.
Mature women usually have been through several cycles of styles, fashion and makeup trends, and as they mature, so does their sense of style. They understand that what looked good when they were twenty, may not be the best option after 50 and this includes the makeup and cosmetics tips they use to enhance their facial features and the clothes they wear. The smart ladies over 50 also realize that while a mini skirt and halter may not work at their age, it does not mean that they have to wear polyester pants and sweatshirts. They also understand that they are beautiful in their own ways. They can still be stylish, elegant and beautiful in the clothes that suit their body shapes perfectly. Just because you are older does not mean that you cannot wear designer clothing that accentuates your personal shape and enhances your beauty and figure.
Also, plus size women who are over 50 can dress with style and find various clothing that will not only look great but accentuate the great features we all have. Don’t hide behind big shapeless dresses and shirts, there are clothes that are designed especially for plus size women, made by high end designers that understand how to make the best of each individual woman’s figures. This is especially significant now with the information age at our fingertips, and designers showcasing their brands online, there is no excuse for not finding the right clothing that makes plus size women of all ages look great. And, keep in mind, there is more to plus size shopping than Lane Bryant, online shops like Ulla Popken and Junonia offer fantastic selections of plus size fashions and a large section dedicated to the mature woman’s needs along with budget friendly prices.
Fashion Tips for Mature Plus Size Ladies
1. Choose Natural Fabrics
Look for natural fabrics, like real silks, cotton, weaves and the like. As opposed to synthetic fabrics, like polyester, the natural 100% authentic fabrics fit and lay better, providing the ideal fit for women of all sizes, but especially for plus size women.
2. Accessories Are Magic
Accessories have the wonderful ability to detract from flaws. A big necklace makes the neck look thinner, a large beautiful designer purse makes your entire body look smaller. Big earrings bring attention to the eyes and away from any body flaws we might feel uncomfortable with.
3. Get The Right Fit
Make sure to choose the right size for pants, tops and dresses. Nothing looks worse than clothing that obviously does not fit. Be okay with the size you wear and no that just because you buy a 14 when you really wear a 16 does not make it reality, it just makes the fit worse and causes discomfort. Don’t buy clothes that fit too tight and hug your body, this only causes more attention to be brought to the flaws and extra weight. At the same time, avoid buying things that are too baggy or large. There is a happy medium. You can wear fitting clothes without looking like you need to be squeezed out of them and have enough fit that it does not look like you are hiding your body. It’s great to be confident and show off your curves and be the chic and stylish woman you feel you are inside.
4. Avoid Busy Prints
Busy fabrics with lots of prints have the tendency to make plus size women look larger than they really are. Even though we like to show off our curves, the clothing we select ought to maximize our full figures, enhancing them rather than giving them wrong definition.
5. Go For Classic Designs and Clean Lines And Cuts
Too much frill and fussy designs on clothing can make you look larger. It does not help to properly define or accentuate a full figured body, but clean cuts and classic lines usually do and work great to make those curves look fantastic.
6. Ditch The Daisy Dukes
Classy over 50 and plus size women no better than to wear very short shorts and skirts. If you have gorgeous legs, be proud of them and wear skirts that show them off, but do with style, moderation and of course taste and always avoid wearing anything that is too short.
7. Body Shapers Can Be A Girl’s Best Friend
A good body shaper can become your best friend, after 50 and even before, and for plus size women a good body shaper can go a long way to feeling more comfortable and looking great. These handy items, one of the more better know brands is Spanks, help to smooth all the imperfections, can reduce you by up to 2 sizes and just make clothes look so much better by eliminating some of those rolls that can be really obviously seen through some fashions. They make women feel better, more secure which consequently can make her feel more beautiful.
8. Try pink!
Lastly, I recommend wearing more pink! Many plus size women tend to wear a lot of dark clothes. Try wearing pink sometimes, the color is famous for creating feelings of serenity, happiness and peace, and those feelings show through in everything you do and how you look. Also, remember that you can be proud of your own beauty, don’t hide behind dark colors, shine and sparkle no matter what size you are!
