Women over 50 still need cute clothing!
Here are the BEST Fashion Stores for Women over 50!
As soon as I hit forty, I found it really hard to find clothing online. The young stores were too young (dresses were way too short) and the older or ‘mature’ (gah I hate that word) clothing was so Grandma like that there is no way I would be caught dead wearing white pants and a pressed ‘blouse’ ick!
There had to be clothing stores in-between – and there are – right here!
Boden is worldwide and has not long been in Australia. Boden has lots of timeless, quality pieces that will last you forever. I particularly love their jersey dresses… They fit beautifully, wash well and never lose their shape. Perfect for casual workwear, smart casual wear and awesome fitting jeans. If you care about fabric and how it feels against the skin, Boden is your go-to.
Check out their website for their range (they also have menswear, childrenswear and baby clothing). Use the code below to get the current best discount available!
Birdsnest is one of my personal favourite sites because they carry a huge range of brands. Plus if you are like me and have a limited sense of style, check out their ‘outfit’ section, great when you can’t decide what to wear! They have a real knack for putting different clothing together to form an entire outfit. Plus you can shop for body shape, personality, and occasion. Genius!
Built on 30 years of fashion industry knowledge, Cotton Dayz dedicates itself to helping women look and feel fabulous. Their stylists and designers are committed to creating a wardrobe that reflects a woman’s taste, personality and lifestyle; there’s no pigeonholing here. We love that Cotton Dayz clothing is made from natural, easy-care fabrics because who could be bothered otherwise?
The clothes are also curated to suit every style, size, body shape and occasion. Hallelujah!
How good is it to know that you can visit an online retailer that has something just for you?
This brand was made famous by Oprah years ago. Their jeans have this amazing ‘stretchy’ ability that pulls you in a whole full size! They make your butt look pert, your hips slimmer and your legs fabulous. I have two pairs of these – and yes – they are pricey – but they have lasted me over 10 years and still look fantastic and I get comments all the time when I wear them!
Jacqui E is the go-to online clothing store for workwear that is great quality and reasonably priced. I love their pants – they always fit so well and last forever! Their dresses are simple and stylishly fitted. Very feminine styling with a work-appropriate look.
Best of all – when you shop online instead of in-store – you often get a 10% discount!
St Frock is an online women’s wear store that has loads of comfortable and feminine dresses that are very well priced. They cater to plus sizes and you can shop depending on hem length, sleeve length and occasion.
St Frock also has a Wedding Section and a great range of Maternity Clothing to choose from.
At first glance, you may not think that The Iconic is very age-appropriate. But wait – it has such a massive collection – I have found some GOLD in there – they really cater to all ages and stock some of the best brands for mature ladies! From activewear to ball gowns, workwear and casual gear – they have it all.
Some of those brands include:
If you love tailored clothing and like to invest in perfect-fitting pants or need office wear that still looks chic – Forcast is your go-to store.
If you are looking for a smoking hot dress to wear to a wedding or just want your curves to shine – then Pasduchas is worth checking out. Sure, they have some ‘younger clothing’ in there, but you’ll also find some midi-dresses that make your figure go ‘Va Voooooom’.
One of the most popular brands for the over-40 woman. Casual wear is made from beautiful breathable materials.
Beautifully tailored cotton shirts, linen dresses and t-shirts that actually go down to where they should. David Lawrence at first glance can seem a little ‘stuffy’ – but they have some great staple pieces that are so beautifully made and tailored – that this is my go-to brand now for classic pants and workwear.
Tulio is an Australian based Mature Women’s Clothing website that has beautiful and stylish fashion with the older woman in mind. Longer lengths (especially t-shirts) and flowy fabrics. They stock brands such as:
Veronika Maine is renowned for its technical innovation and high-quality finishes. Timeless pieces that will last a lifetime. They also have a dress I’d kill for but it is $220 and my husband would seriously kill me if I spent that much on a dress!
Very high-quality fabrics and styles.
Seed Heritage is the best place for high-quality casual wear. They have adorable jumpers, coats and shoes. The perfect outfits for travelling.
Blue Bungalow has clothing that covers more of the parts we don’t like, and accentuates the bits we do! They have workwear, weekend wear, resort wear and clothing for plus size women. Best of all, they have a massive range of Bamboo clothing – which is soft, breathable and drapes beautifully!
Marcs is like a ‘More Fashionable David Lawrence’. I love their t-shirts and shorts. Tailored, classy and beautiful fabrics.
Boody makes beautifully soft bamboo clothing. I know now that I’m in my late 40’s, I’m super fussy about the type of material I wear close to my skin. I also love the fact that Bamboo is eco-friendly and sustainable. Once you go bamboo clothing – it’s hard to go back!
