Women over the age of 50 are often more fashionable than when they were younger, because they have more self-confidence and less things to worry about.

Even though you are fashionable than when you were younger, a woman over fifty should dress in a way that is ‘age-appropriate.’ When you try to dress up in styles that are more appropriate for someone much younger, you make yourself look older than you actually are.
