To get 80s style hair, part your hair on the opposite side it is normally on, curl it with the curling iron, and then pretty much bathe in hairspray. Then you can start teasing away! Start on the bottom or second to bottom layer and tease at the root, working your way up to the top layer. Finish off with a good layer of hairspray.
Cut T-shirts so they slope of the shoulder. Bagginess teamed with leggings is a classic Flashdance look. Visors are completely 80's and make a great accessory.
In the 80's they wore crazy, bright clothes. Go to your local thrift store and look around. Find anything neon, black and lacy, or just plain wacky, then pair it up with a pair of converse and you have just made yourself an 80's outfit! Wear a playsuit -- they suit almost everyone and come in a variety of shapes and styles. Wear bumbags with cool items such as play suits, baggy jeans or sporty dresses. Wear crazy neon "workout" gear. Warnings Don't get too carried away with this, it's just for a fun, different look.
Top off your look with some colorful eye makeup and fingerless gloves. BK Blessings Katewera Jul LH Lynn Howard May LR Louise Rodriguez Jul 15, I was a teen during the 80's. And I had the acid wash jeans, jelly shoes, the neon earrings and rubber Madonna bracelets with the lacy hair bow in my big teased hair. And I had every color of leg warmers that were made! Your advice is like a trip down memory lane!

Thank you for the great help! JL Jacqueline Lopez Aug 10, It helps me with every problem I had so far, the best! SW Sarah White Mar 6, CG Catherine Graham Jul 6, Just toss on a cute top and you're ready to go! I think you'll agree that being comfortable in your jeans is something that you demand at this age and here, you have the tummy panel that keeps you controlled but comfortable.
Choose luxurious, rich fabrics like buttery leather, soft fur, or cashmere and you simply can't go wrong. These kinds of coats and jackets are eternally youthful in spirit. Since they're such an important part of your look, it's best to think designer brands when it comes to your jacket.
Unless you're a woman that spends countless hours working out in a gym, and who does that, unless you're a rich celebrity , your best plan of attack for shaping and sculpting the old body is going to come from wearing shapewear that offers firm control.
I know you'll like shopping for shapewear online. Shop for shapers, bras, waistnippers, and panties with brand names like:. Heels shouldn't be too high. Instead, opt for strapped sandals, wedges, or stylish flats. High-quality brand name shoes makes much more sense now than those spiked shoes from hell we wore in the 70's!
Of course, our bikini days are over now, but there are some really high quality one-piece swimsuits and tankinis that can make you feel attractive in a bathing suit again. The key word to remember when shopping for a swimsuit now is quality. Don't run out to Walmart and get something that is cheaply made that any year-old would look good in. Go for quality now—you have to. I mean, it isn't cute anymore when one of your straps break or the bottoms slide off when you're swimming.
I have a Miraclesuit swimsuit that has gotten me plenty of compliments this year. They are on the expensive side, but are well worth the extra cash. I really like the way all the models featured in More are women that are actually over 40 not twenty-somethings to remind you that you're not so young anymore.

More also contains articles on finances that are beneficial to women looking to invest, retire or just manage personal income, too.

I have been a lite boho for years. Though i have toned it down to suit my age. Why should i change the way i like to dress because of a number! I always get compliments on my clothing so i will continue to be a boho lady.
Less make-up, possible permanent eye liner helps, with mascara and natural lipstick. Leave the puffy coats for the thin, and chose a tailored coat with a fur or faux fur collar.. Jewelry and accessories should match the size of your features. Large features or large people can wear larger size accessories, than small or petite women usually. Warm and comfortable feet makes one relaxed and happy.
I feel that less is more, I do not agree with bold prints, I leave that type of print to a wonderful scarf. Easy on the makeup, natural grey hair, Find your style and live it! Great tips, what I believe is Fashion never end up with your young age moreover clothes don't make a man, they only make an impression and even then, you dress to suit the occasion. Seems counterintuitive for a woman to put so many restrictions on other women and claim they are being supportive and helpful.
Why are we still so bent on telling women what to do? Are we so jealous of the hot 50 year olds in bikinis that we have to use peer pressure tactics in order to compensate for our own insecurities? We should be celebrating each other! Can I add, what the heck is wrong with florals??? Will be extraordinary if people think of you as been 20s now that is a 30 year difference and that is amazzzzing! I just turned 50, I wear a size 3, or 26", I am very active, run a horse breeding farm, burns a lot of calories.
I love wearing short skirts, low tops, and heels, plus bikinis. My favorite jeans are by Miss Me. I have had a couple of plastic surgery procedures, most people guesstimate me to be I am updating my wardrobe, adding some leather pieces, and nice sweaters, but I will dress young as long as I can! I found that some of the comments are a little offensive. Just because I am a senior citizen doesn't mean I am fat and have body issues.
I don't need elastic waistbands or long dresses as my shape is fine. I wear a size 6. Petite outfits that are age appropriate is what I was looking for. I have no role model in celebrities over fifty. They are slim and have people do their hair and makeup. None of these tips quite worked for me. I gained fifteen pounds this last year.
No, I guess not! Who doesn't wear jeans? Stopped wearing them after age I just don't like them, and neither did Coco Chanel. I'm 50 and my bikini days are not over. I also love florals. While I appreciate guidelines, a list of no-nos box a woman's creativity and expression.
Was always the youngest in my group, and just like that, I'm the oldest. So I can't ask my friends and don't live in an area where I can look to what others are wearing, nor spend a fortune, even on a classic piece. I also made a commitment to myself to shop American, so thank you for the head start. I agree with Catherine below. As a 51 year old, I like to wear what I want and that includes shopping at American Eagle Outfitter for jeans.
I avoid low -waist jeans, but find they have a great variety of mid-rise to high-rise casual jeans at reasonable prices. I also own two pairs of Doc Martens shoes that I adore - one plain black and one floral - they are fun. Don't think it really matters - I say wear what you like and feel comfortable in. I'm almost 51, have great skin thanks to genetics, have been active all my life, have long dark hair in great condition with minimal greys I still wear bikinis and short skirts and get compliments from both genders.
I do think 50 and over should avoid florals, too much lace, and hair accessories with the exception of a barrette or hair band for a low ponytail. Much of the advice is okay, but in my opinion the need for advice is greater among younger women. Where I live, most women past 50 look far more stylish than many women in their twenties and thirties.
And why do you say that "of course, our bikini days are over now"? I know women in their seventies and even eighties who still look great in a bikini.
Interesting comments regarding 'appropriate' dress. I'm finding at 62 I can still pull off the occasional tight, low cut, etc. Also shapewear is a must have as gravity will have its way! Loving many of the tips and advice on this forum. Whether we like it or not there are situations and places that require a certain way of dressing. Although this site is directing the issue toward mature women, I often see younger women who dress shabbily, inappropriately, and too provocatively.
Some people in the name of freedom of style proclaim that a person should be able to wear whatever they like, wherever they like.
But this is not only an irresponsible attitude, but also wishful thinking. We all know that we dress one way for the beach, another way for church, funerals, weddings, etc.
One would hope that as a woman matures, so does her sense of style. Gracefully say good-bye to the micro minis you wore at 16, skimpy half tops and very low rise pants that expose your midriff, seductive plunging necklines and sausage tight clothing that desperately cling to the bygone days of your youth.
When you were four, you dressed like a four-year-old. When you were twenty, you dressed like a twenty-year-old. And now that you are over 50, explore the selection of beautiful casual and elegant clothes available for this age group. Cultivate a style that makes you look attractive, comfortable, and chic. Be a role model for the younger generation. Let them see how a mature and confident woman should present herself.
You'll look and feel so much better. I totally disagree with previous comment. Women over 50 say they feel invisible - maybe that's because they dress to be invisible.
I see a lot of women dressing dumpy which ages them more and I see a lot of women who try to be young by dressing too young. How you dress I forms people's first opinion - either confident, elegant, fun, full of life or dumpy, old, tired, desperate to be young, etc. There's nothing shaming in thinking about if your style makes you feel good! This whole thing makes me cringe. Wear what you want! Your old enough to know what You like.
So what if I have crapey skin. It shows I've lived. I'm not going to cover up my age because it makes the young people uncomfortable. It's where we are all headed. Might as well get comfortable with it.
Maybe we should learn to focus on the things that matter, like how we treat each other and stop shaming people about their appearance. Ladies NEVER wear these as our 'girls' are not where they used to be, they have gone South, and wearing a tube top or strapless top simply makes them go More South! Thank you for the great tips. I know woman is n their 50s who wear bikinis and it makes me cringe.
Fashion never end up with your young age, this post on fashion tips for women helps to know how to turn up fashionista over But when you do, keep it simple and consistent.
Caroline Herrera looks fabulous in a basic suit paired with a statement necklace. One area that older women always seem to get wrong is in the accessories department.
Instead of wearing your entire jewelry box every day, focus on one wearing one standout piece at a time. BUT a nice pair of trouser cut, straight leg or wide leg jeans look fabulous on older women. This will allow the jean to stretch to fit you and help to control any problem areas.
Some brands to try: For those of you with a bit more of a tummy, try skinnies from brands like Old Navy and New York and Co as they have a bit higher rise which will help it sit better on your waist.
Also, if you have gray hair, the dark navy color of the jeans really set off the gray in your hair. But please, for all that is fashionable and good in this world, avoid wearing denim from head to toe.
