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. You can find them on Amazon by clicking on the pictures.



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 cardigan, you won’t need to search for a scarf, bolero or jacket that has the same color or texture of your dress.

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!

Royal Purple





A bit of history: While I was researching on the origins of this color in fashion, I was surprised to see old paintings depicting 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.
