STYLE: Fashion Inspiration After 50

By Susan "Honey" Good

Today, I'm writing about style after 50, inspired by real women on the social media app, Instagram.

Now you may be wondering to yourself... what does age have to do with fashion? 

And the answer, in my opinion, is that age never defines us. It doesn't say who we are, who we were or who we are yet to become.

Yet if you, like me, enjoy gleaning inspiration from other women who are sharing the journey, these "How to do whatever after 50" stories are a fun way to gather ideas about how to present yourself to the world. 

Are there any rules? Not really! I hope you stay vibrant and visible, dear readers, and present yourself to the world in whatever way you choose. I hope you continue to "rule" the roost!

(If you are an Instagram user or plan on becoming one, I found most of these women by searching the following hashtags: #fashionover60 and #fashionover50.)

Skinny jeans and a classic cardigan via @styleandnature. I adore!

@bagandaberet describes this dress as "scandalicious." I don't know her, but I like her already! No rules... just right!

Chanel and denim are simply timeless in my book. @gracefilledglam appears to agree!

This look via @conceptosdeestilo is effortless, comfy and oh so chic. Do you agree?

This lovely lady is @piadgronning. I love the combination of complementary patterns shown here. 

@southernrhoda is a blogger who shows women how to mix it up a bit. 

Who says cameras can't capture charisma? @atypical60 has an infectious smile and a fun style that comes through even in photos, including lots of detail shots of her outfits and accessories. 

This post was done by a gentleman who goes by @styleafter50 as a tribute to his lovely wife, but I had to include the types of photos he usually posts as well… pictures of HIS very own outfit combinations! 

Happy Thursday, dear readers! I hope you are feeling inspired and as always, I would love to see what you're wearing, too!
