Just because you are 50 plus does not mean you should do away with fashion. You can always adapt and curate your closet so that you can grow older gracefully. That being said, here are a few simple and straightforward fashion tips for those who are 50 years old and above.
- Buy an Excellent Fit
Wearing clothes custom made for you helps keep an appealing and comfortable look. Keep in mind we don’t mean wearing just suits. You can look for clothes like polo shirts, new jackets and blazers that flatter.
- Rock the Same Style
If you want to refine your look, consider keeping your style the same and rock a similar color palette. Having a signature style allows you to match individual pieces without ever having a fashion faux.
- Spend Extra on Several Expensive Pieces
At the age of 50, chances are you can afford to spend a little extra on trousers, shirts, suits, and jumpers than you could in your 20s and 30s. Consider finding some staples and invest there instead of spending on fast fashion. Go for neutral shades like cream, beige, and for darker colors, stick to charcoal grey, navy, or deep green.
- Be Realistic
Accept the fact that you are growing old and your hair will turn grey or fall off. Embracing your look is way more attractive than having a hair color that is a bit too ”Rolling Stones” black or trying to comb over several stray hairs.
- Spend Some More Time on Day Grooming
Keeping your beard trimmed, nails short and teeth white makes all the difference once you hit 50. Skincare is also imperative and there are numerous affordable men’s ranges in this day and age. Go for a gentle anti-aging moisturizer and exfoliator to make your body appealing.
- Work Out
Nothing fits a suit better than a well-toned body. You might not be Brad Pitt, but working out on a regular basis makes a huge difference in how you feel and look. So, invest in some good fitting workout clothes and hit the gym.
You may also want to buy dark-colored, thin-framed glasses that showcase your experienced eyes. Glasses can really shape a face and are an elegant addition to an older man’s look. Consult an optician and ask them to present an array of styles that might be a good fit for you, even those that you have not tried before.
Consider investing in a good looking timeless watch, comfy socks, and a simple but stylish belt. Accessories are great at adding some style to the more plain outfits. So, spend a little more on these items and rock a great look for months or possibly years as they last a long time.
- Aim for The Stars
Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Colin Firth, Bill Nighy, and Brad Pitt are all stars who are over 50 and still getting it right. So, do not hesitate to look at their recent red carpet moments to get some inspiration.
- What to Ditch
This is the time to get rid of those tight t-shirts, short shorts, baseball caps, vests, double denim, and sandals. You’ll want to take an extensive look at your closet and assess how long you wore it or even ask a family member or friend their opinion on the look. Be ready for the brutal truth though!
