Wedding Guest Attire For Women Over 50

Finding wedding guest attire for women over 50 is not always an easy task.

In fact, haute couture and even mainstream clothing brands usually focus on dressing people that are 20 or 30 years old.

Fortunately, fashion trends are becoming more inclusive for all ages and shapes as you will see in this article. Also, women over 50 now have access to a wider variety of styles to better suit their needs and taste.

The following outfits reflect this inclination.

Just click on the images to see color availability and prices.

Cardigan Outfits

An outfit with a matching jacket is the best compromise between a long or 3/4 sleeve dress and a sleeveless dress.

Especially if you don’t have time to plan ahead. With the matching bolero, jacket or cardigan, you won’t need to search for a scarf or any other garment to keep you warm.

Moreover, you won’t have to freeze while you sit under the air-conditioned outlet as it tends to happen sometimes… and for some of us too frequently!

Knee-Lenght Dresses

This refined lace tea-length dress is a great alternative to a formal gown as you will be able to wear it in a less official occasion as well.

In fact, it can be chic if paired with elegant jewelry for the wedding celebration or you can wear it as is for dinner with friends.


A great alternative for the women who want to have a sophisticated attire without compromising on comfort.

This jumpsuit has a chic integrated golden chained halter necklace design. The matte jersey fabric is stretchy and the cinched waist flatters the silhouette.

Plus Size Dresses

These full figure dresses look amazing!

The Great Gatsby pattern of the following gown makes it unique and festive.

This knee-length dress has a delicate scalloped hemline detail which adds lots of charm to it.

I like the fact that it can be used on different occasions.  The lace overlay makes it sophisticated enough for a wedding celebration.

However, you can definitely wear it when you have friends over for a dinner or on a night out on the town. The idea is to accessorize it with appropriate jewelry and shoes!

Champagne Refinement

Royal Purple

A bit of history: While I was researching the origins of this color in fashion, I was surprised to see old paintings depicting the coronation ceremony where kings and queens wore purple. I was mistakenly thinking it was a modern shade introduced not long ago.

On the contrary, purple for as long as people can remember was a color worn by royals. It was a symbol of wealth and nobility.
