I am delighted to assist you in creating a capsule wardrobe specifically designed over 50 women. You have made the right choice by coming to me for help! By now, you probably have a sense of what your style preferences are, which is excellent to incorporate in the process. The key to building a successful capsule wardrobe is selecting items that provide versatility, make you look and feel great, and save you time, money, and space.
To begin, it is beneficial to learn about the colors and styles that complement your complexion and body type. A color analysis and body type guide can aid in identifying what works best for you and avoiding fashion mishaps. With that said, I have compiled a list of outfit ideas below to inspire you further:
– A classic white shirt paired with dark wash jeans and ankle boots for a timeless look.
– A black blazer with a simple tee, black pants, and heels for a polished and sophisticated appearance.
– A cozy sweater with a midi skirt and knee-high boots for a comfortable yet chic ensemble.
– A denim jacket with a printed dress and flats for a casual yet put-together outfit.
– A trench coat with tailored pants and loafers for a stylish and modern look.
Please keep in mind that these are just suggestions to jump-start your imagination. The most important aspect is selecting pieces that make you feel self-assured and comfortable.
Outfit Ideas For The Over 50's
Limiting what you have is the key to coming up with good outfit ideas. I’ve discovered that having a limited wardrobe has benefited my clients in creating better outfit ideas. By understanding which styles best suit your body shape and which colours complement your skin tone, you can make mindful purchases that allow you to look and feel your best. You will be able to effortlessly mix and match each new addition to your wardrobe, resulting in a variety of fashionable outfits. Furthermore, you become adept at determining what to keep and what to discard, resulting in a more intentional and less cluttered closet.
Overall, your confidence in fashion choices grows, and you will be excited to continue refining your personal style. You capsule wardrobe over 50 should define your personality and not restrict it.
Colours For An Over 50's Capsule
When embarking on a capsule wardrobe over 50, it’s crucial to figure out which colours complement your skin tone. If you already have a good sense of the colours that flatter you, that’s fantastic! But if you’re uncertain, it’s advisable to seek expert assistance. While it may necessitate an initial expense, you’ll save money in the long run by avoiding purchasing clothes that don’t work for you.
Once you’ve determined which colours look best on you, try to limit yourself to eight or fewer. This doesn’t imply that you can’t wear other shades, but it does make it simpler to develop your capsule and put together outfit combinations without effort.
During a colour analysis, I categorise my clients’ colours into two groups: paint and canvas. Paint colours are vivid hues that stand out in an outfit, while canvas colours are more neutral and constitute the majority of the outfit. I recommend selecting three or four colours from each group.
Fashion Over 50
Fashion and style over 50 can be a bit intimidating. It’s a tricky balance between wanting to look fashionable and stylish, but not wanting to look like you’re dressing for someone much older than you. You don’t want to wear crop tops, but you’re not quite ready for the twinset and pearls look either (unless you’re going for a retro 50s vibe!).
The key is to find the middle ground that works best for you. When I work with clients, I find that it’s more about updating their current style to suit their current lifestyle. You don’t have to completely change your look, just make adjustments that make you feel comfortable and confident.
It’s also important to know what styles suit your body shape, so you can choose pieces that flatter you the most. Add in your favourite colours and personal preferences, and you’ll have all the tools you need to create the wardrobe of your dreams.
Maintaining Your Over 50 capsule Wardrobe
Starting the process of updating your style and wardrobe can be transformative and make you feel great. Many of my clients have reported receiving compliments for the first time in years after going through this process. Take your time and create a capsule wardrobe that is bespoke to you, based on your lifestyle needs, colours, styles, and personal preferences.
Begin by decluttering your existing wardrobe and gradually adding pieces that you need, always referring to your original colour and style plan. Consider how each item fits into your wardrobe, when you will wear it, and how many outfits you can make with it using what you already own. With these steps, you’ll be well on your way to building the wardrobe of your dreams. If you still need help why not book in for a 20 minute consultation with me?
