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,

I have mixed feelings about social media too, but for me the positives outweigh the negatives. Thanks for introducing me to these fabulous ladies!
My pleasure, Emma! xo
Thanks for this introduction to these wonderful and unique fashionistas. I also love to see the individuality of style and how each woman expresses herself through fashion— from all over the globe. And I also have mixed feelings about social media, but here we are. Have a wonderful week and enjoy the fourth !
Thanks, Elle – hope your week is terrific too, xo.
I appreciate so much the people who have gone to the trouble to make videos or instagram posts that help me through tough spots, such as a recent eye surgery. Also appreciate you for the list above. Beth of Style at a Certain Age has coloring and hair style similar to my own. It’s helpful to see her outfits and get an idea of the best looks for me.
Wishes for full recovery from your surgery, Carol! And thanks for coming by, xox
Thank you for introducing me to these amazing women who are rocking life after 50! I was only familiar with one or two so the others were new-to-me as well and WOW! What cool women! I’m off to add them to the list of people I follow on IG!
thanks Sherry – you know you’re on my “always” list of fab women. xox
I’m back and forth on social media. It seems like work at times, yet I have met the best women from it also. So I guess the good outweighs the bad!!
I think that’s my conclusion for the moment! xo
I feel the same way about social media. But I do love seeing other women going for it – living boldy, embracing life, and most of all encouraging others. It’s inspiring and has taken the place of reading magazines for me. I love seeing real women in real fashion!
We are the same! I don’t magazines much anymore either. xo
