10 Things Women Over 50 Should Never Wear

You’re here because you’re either nearing 50, you are 50, or you’re over 50, and you have no clue what you should be wearing anymore. Is there a catalogue for age-appropriate clothes for 50-year-olds?

Who knows.

A lot of us have this question. I know I did. How should a 50-year-old woman dress? Where is that catalogue to order clothes from? We all remember the Sears and Eaton catalogues that used to come out every season. 

What Women Over 50 Should Wear

I often wondered who the person was who decided that once you hit 50, there is a selection of age-appropriate clothes. “Oh, I’m sorry, you just hit 50? Ok, you can no longer shop in this section. You must choose your wardrobe from that section waaaaaaaaay over there in the back corner. The section for mature women”.

That guy. Who’s that guy? Was it a guy? I’m sad if it was a woman who came up with this unwritten rule.

Why is there a completely different fashion for women over 50 line anyway?

Nobody showed me how to dress over 50. I couldn’t find an instruction manual anywhere. And why did I have to change anything just because I got a little older?

They Say Don’t Do These Things

“THEY” say, don’t wear your hair long, it ages you. Don’t wear short skirts, it makes you look like you’re trying to be 25 again. Stop trying to act and dress like younger women.

Don’t wear high heels, you look like a tired old hooker. Don’t wear eyeliner. Don’t wear pastel eye shadow, your fine lines are accentuated.

Don’t wear this, don’t wear that. They said!!! Don’t Don’t Don’t.

Who the eff are they anyway?

So many rules, so many opinions, so much bulls**t. It’s exhausting.

After much Googling and researching, I’ve come up with my list of 10 things women over 50 should never wear. I think you’ll like it.

That’s a lie. I didn’t Google or research anything. I made this up. You’re still gonna like it.

What Not to Wear Over 50

1 The opinion of others

Can you live your life for yourself, please? Does it matter what others think of you? Most of them don’t even think highly of themselves. Let them point, stare and whisper, I say. Give them something to talk about, I say!

You should never wear the opinion of others. Ever. 

2 Baggage from the past

Drop all the big ugly, heavy bags. They don’t look good on you. They are weighing you down and, if I might add, aging you quickly. Do yourself a favour, and get rid of all your emotional baggage. We’re moving forward in life, not backward.

None of the stuff from yesterday matters today or tomorrow.

3 Jealousy

So Margaret looks good for her age, and “you’d never know she was a day over 50!” they say. Who cares? Good for Margaret. She’s beautiful, and you know what, so are you! There’s no need to be jealous of other women.

We’re all beautiful and amazing in our own unique ways.

4 Fear of getting old

Yes, we’re getting older. Life goes on. We’re not 25 anymore. But life is what you make it. You’re not dead yet, and you have no idea when you will die. Time’s flying by! Do things you always wanted to do, try new things, travel, and live out loud.

Live it up now, babe.

5 The doormat

Seriously, stop wearing (or being) the doormat. You’ve worn it for far too long. You are no one’s b****. Find your voice, start using it, and start saying NO to all these people who have been taking advantage of you all this time.

Tell more people to eff off!!

6 Cattiness

Time to grow up. We’re not in high school anymore, and besides, that catty look looks horrible on you. Disgusting, if you will. Life isn’t a competition. We’re all in this together. Put your pointy finger down and stand tall with your sisters! The world is already a heavy place to be in.

Lift a sister up, don’t put her down.

7 Judgement

If you’re still judging others, stop it. You are no better than anyone else, and no one is better than you. Judging others makes you ugly no matter how beautiful you are on the outside. In case you missed the memo, your poop stinks just as much as the next guy’s.

You can judge me when you’re perfect.

8 Regret

Like baggage, regret also ages you. So you didn’t do this or that, so you never told so and so something, so you never went to that place. So what? Regret does nothing to enhance your life and only makes you sad and miserable.

Dump it.

9 Crocs

Burn them. Have a croc-destroying party. Donate them if you want but get rid of them!!

Haha, I’m kidding. Girl, we need comfy shoes. I feel ya. For me, the perfect shoe is a pair of flip-flops. I own way too many, and I love each pair.

But listen, you can wear crocs all you want. We don’t give a sh*t anymore.

10 Worry

It’s time to turn that worry frown upside down and make it a smile. Life is short, and we’re over halfway through our lives. There’s no time to worry or hold back or not live the life you deserve and desire. Smile at strangers, eat the cake, go to foreign lands, say hi to the cute boy…. do things, and stop worrying if it’s right or wrong or if people will talk.

If it makes you happy, it’s right.

What Not to Wear Over 50

So clearly, you can see clothes have nothing to do with this post. Why? Because it should never ever matter how you dress or what you wear. It’s what’s on the inside that counts, not how you look.

Just be a good human and wear whatever you want, as long as it brings you joy, that’s all that matters.
