Timeless fashion style tips for women over 60

Apr 16, 2022
Looking fashionable at 60 has never been easier!

Being a woman in her 60s is a wonderful feeling! You’re independent, free and ready to enjoy the next chapters of your life.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of being older is knowing what fashion styles work for you and investing in clothes that enhance your look as a 60-year-old. Just because we get older doesn’t mean to have to lose our sense of style, just look at Jane Fonda, Goldie Hawn and Dame Helen Mirren.

However, if you think you need some guidance with figuring out your style at 60, here are some style tips to help you look good in anything you wear.

Sarah silk dress

Think big patterns, bold colours

Incorporating brightly-coloured clothes is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Having a splash of colour will give your look an instant boost without being over the top. A clothing item like the Sarah silk dress by Donna Donna is an excellent statement dress to have.

The Sarah Silk dress is made from a mid-weight viscose fabric with an elegant drape while the open-flow silhouette adds a dramatic touch. The cut is flattering, feminine, and wearable, while the below-knee length keeps it fresh yet appropriate for formal occasions. Make a statement by accessorizing this dress with metallic sandals and fine jewellery.

Deluxe collard shirt

Balance timelessness with current trends

The fashion world is always fluctuating, hopping from one style to the next within a couple of weeks! With so many microtrends floating around, staying on-trend may seem intimidating, especially since a lot of these trends cater for a younger demographic. However, there are still ways you to combine timeless fashion items with trendy, age-appropriate pieces.

More recently fashion trends from the 60s and 70s have started reemerging. From ultra-chic accessories to well-tailored silhouettes, there’s no denying this era is impacting modern fashion. While you may not feel inclined to start wearing vinyl jackets or skirt suits, styling a classic white collard shirt with colourful jewellery or sleek accessories will not only elevate your look but also keep you totally on-trend.

The Birch House deluxe collared shirt is the perfect timeless style piece that pairs exceptionally well with emerging modern trends. The shirt itself offers a subtle puffy sleeve that has dual button cuffs for easy adjustments in sizing. This beautiful classic shirt not only offers superb quality but it was designed to flatter feminine curves too. With a nice crisp collar, scooped hemline and on-trend side splits, this fantastic shirt is definitely a favourite.

Cocobella vest

Mix textures and breathable fabrics

No matter what your age, breathable fabrics are always a winner. The lightweight comfort and breezy sophistication are always going to be a timeless and classic look- pair it with a different clothing texture and you’ve added another level of interest to your look.

Mixing and matching textures may sound confusing, but in the same way, certain classic prints can appear “neutral,” simple textures can act as a neutral base for wilder textures. Textures like denim and cotton fabric are some of the best and most basic textures that make for good bases.

Pair a classic white cotton collard shirt with a lightweight textured clothing item like the Cocobella vest by The Birch House and you’ve got yourself a stylish and comfortable look. Made from soft grey wool, this classic cable knit vest has a roomy relaxed style that you can rely on day in and day out.
