I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I don’t enjoy the crabby people, of course, and I also wonder if we’re putting ourselves out there in the world based on our shallowest dimension – our looks. I still participate though, so the benefits must be outweighing the negatives. And I love to observe bold over-50 women dressing, and living, like a boss.
I especially enjoy finding new-to-me over-50 women on Instagram, who have style and attitude. I look for women from other cultures and countries, to help expand my orbits. I love originality and confidence, and it makes me even prouder to be an over-50 (over-60) style blogger. Have you met the following?:
European classic. Misja B of Misjabeiers describes herself as a “European 60+ fashion photographer and blogger.” Her photos are terrific and her style is cool and modern. Love this mixed print look, in classic black and white:
A gorgeous over-60 woman, Keiko of Aoihura, has a modest, feminine aesthetic. She calls herself an “ordinary wife, mom, and grandma, 68 years old”, from Japan. This floral skirt is a beauty:
Looking great for every occasion. Beth of Style At A Certain Age says “trends come and go but true style is ageless.” I love Beth’s classics-with-color style, and she has fabulous silver hair and a handsome dog named Oscar.
Go bold, live bold. Evelyn of Fashionista Over 40 calls herself a “self proclaimed, Latina Fashionista at heart.” She mixes casual and dressy, and looks equally great in colors and monochrome. And she has a cool haircut.
Berlin-chic. Miss Black of Frau_schwarz_traegt_schwarz (Instagram does translations for us monolinguals) says “Style is not a matter of age.” She’s 65, and for me she captures that European ease: looking chic without trying too hard. More great hair.
Stay fabulous and revel in your own style, xo,
