Lots of funny and expressive comments! Better than the video... But I’m a classic dresser myself and at 68 like to have a wardrobe that is easy, workable and calming. I enjoy the many creative, colorful styles some women my age group wear with great flair and panache. I feel like I’m dressed for the circus and seeking attention in clothes that are highly artistic and different although I’m an artist. Classic quality feels right for me so I quite like the featured outfit. It’s obviously not everyone’s cup of tea.

Unbelievable! Literally a woman dictating to older women what they and shouldn't wear. It is for women, regardless of age, to decide, not you. Got that ?

To all you idiot women who are writing hateful comments why were you watching this video in the first place?! Wear crazy stupid styles if you want bt don't come to a video for advice then spew hatred. The woman in the video did a good job and gave good advice.

Young lady, when you get old enough to know what you are talking about, I'll listen. The styling on that coat or jacket has already made a couple of rounds and is not a classic in my book. I love real classics but that does not do it for me.

This is supposed to be a video but there is nothing to see, I rather read all that she has been talking about on Google! I am 57 and I wear skinny jeans without having to worry about "etiquette."

So in order to dress properly women in their 40'-50's should stay basic and not venture off the boring path. Geez lady get a grip you ha e no idea as to what women in their 40-50's think 💭 or take into consideration everybody should dress to let their personalities shine through. 😂

She has no right the to give advice on what to wear to people older than her. Some people look a lot older in classic clothes.
Samantha Eckert (8 months ago)
This is horrible! From the poor fitting blazer she’s wearing to the dull, lifeless dialogue, the video is not informative or accurate. Please try again.

I’ll wear baggy and float if I feel like it. Can’t wait to see how she wants to dress at 50+. Those clothes are so boring. Have fun with clothes at any age.

You tried!! These women here refuse to dress their age apparently. Hand them a tank top and ripped jeans and send them off to Wal-Mart

Sandra Simpraga (10 months ago)
After seeing this poor young woman dressed so boringly and outdated, talking in lifeless monotone voice, I do not see how she can teach anyone how to dress to impress. She needs some style lessons first. She is talking about women over 50 like they are dinosaurs. Very distasteful video. Ageist too. If she looks so boring now, I wonder how she will be at 50 lol
Yvonne Van Den Herreweghe (11 months ago)
I hate tailored,"elegant" look.I've always had a more boho type draw-I hate pendant necklaces,blazers-to each her own, but I'm glad I don't worry about "appropriateness".
Janie Peace (11 months ago)
You know what you can do with this video...dont you? Such antiquated "etiquette" rules? Be YOUtiful in what feels right to you ladies. Wish I cold unsee this one.
Barbara Eifler (11 months ago)
Honey, YOUR style is old fashioned! I would tell YOU how to dress well, and I’m way over 60,
Mary K A (11 months ago)
Sorry, I rarely disagree with youtubers, however, I feel like you need to catch up with the mood of the 21st century. I woman over fifty can always add a trend that is not classic. Many women over 50 are youthful looking, confident and playful. Classic clothing. I agree, is a must in everyone's wardrobe regardless of age. If classic is your style and prefer to wear only classics when you are over fifty then I say go for it. However, to be told that or to insinuate that looking for trendy pieces if you are over fifty is not appropriate is ridiculous. The advice is sound in general but it is only a part of the modern woman. P.S. I am almost 60, have classics and trendy pieces that I mix and am constantly being stopped by people to compliment my style. I will forever continue this method of dressing and so should most women over fifty.
Maria Von Borstel (11 months ago)
I am a old hippie, so I am not boring. Love colors flowers long hair etc, you get it.
Cindy (1 year ago)
Really? Is that what I want? I'm 60+ and I know that for ME, NOW is exactly the right time to try trendy cuts, bold colors, and different styles! At this time in my life, I realize how unimportant other people's opinions of me have become. What I feel good in is what I will look best in, because I will exude confidence and a happier countenance. And what is right for me might be completely wrong for another woman my age (just as at any other age). But hey, these are your opinions. You might just want to wait until you've actually experienced a thing before you speak as an expert on it. JMO.
Cindy PERFECTLY stated! ❤️

Little Mom Pasadena (1 year ago)
I don't get it.  If you wear what you want anyway, why are you even looking at this video? There would be only one extremely short video on YouTube on how to dress if the only good advice was, "Just wear what you want!"   You are free to reject any advice, but why all the smugness and snarkiness?  It's just suggestions about what you might think about.  Yes, you can run around with torn jeans or a miniskirt at 60+ and no one is going to say anything to your face but PERHAPS classic styles might be more flattering.  And who can argue about clothes having a good fit being more attractive? I am 63 & very fit and I also break the rules, but I want to know what the rules are.  Unlike some of the posters here, I do care about how I might be viewed by others.

I completely agree with this. I'm 56. You can't go wrong with this approach, There'a still a lot of room for trends and fun with this. Of course, if one wants to completely do their own thing, throwing caution to the wind, that's fine too. Just have fun with it.
Happybidr (1 year ago)
Lordy, Lordy, honey. I remember when your "look" was in "fashion" ( that's a swear word, in my mind) and it was a decade before you were born. Pushed up sleeves and raised collar? I threw that jacket out years ago.

Nancy Myself (1 year ago)
To the 632 who gave this a thumbs up, please don't limit yourselves this way! You're not Edith, obeying Archie's order to "stifle yourself". Wear red. Wear purple. Have a mono color capsule wardrobe. Wear whatever you love! And be comfortable. This is 2017, and no one can dictate what you should be. Just.....naaa.
Editha Portes (1 year ago)

This is an old fashioned way of thinking.There are no rules in fashion anymore. Wear whatever looks good on you and whatever makes you feel happy!
Dwightinho56 (1 year ago)
By following this advice one would immediately look 10 years older. Terrible examples.
Ruth Thomson (1 year ago)
give it a miss dearie and stop being so blasted patronising. You're too young to give advice to experienced wormen who are way more worldly than yourself darling...Good luck in your styling career.
Ruth Thomson (1 year ago)
how old is this girl? How long has she been around in this world? What should fifty and beyond look etc etc....??? It is all about personality and what works for the individual dearie me ...lolol
Being Nancy (1 year ago)
Please stop trying to put all women over 50 in the same box. You are an ageist. We are not homogeneous group. As in any group....there is much diversity. This is so condescending.

I'm fifty and I'll wear what I feel good in. As I've been dressing myself since for as long As I can remember I'll use my own judgement

I wouldnt wear pink but other ladies would suit it. I love the long flattering necklace. I wouldnt use a clutch bag as it might get stolen or I would loose it being meno brain. The trousers and top are nice too. I recently have found clothes I like at Peacocks! as they have classic fitted, affordable clothes you wouldnt freak out if you sat on chewing gum etc. I find Bon Marche a bit too old style for me but their Jeans really fit lovely as they do slim leg and come up a size smaller! I dont wear dresses as I thought they didnt flatter me and my OH hates me in them - but on trying on more expensive dresses for a wedding I found they can make you look surprsingly slim - just got to find some good support stockings for lymphodema leg. I did think of a nice fitted tux style trouser outfit but have had some strange reactions to that. My sister says I should wear a fasinator on my head but that is deffo not me but my cat might like playing with it. I gotta do some serious shopping/trying on. I lost my way when I had my thyroid removed and put on 2 stone.
Ruth Thomson (2 years ago)
she is too young to be giving older women advice of this sort. Totally condescending and patronizing. Typical younger woman thinking she knows it all.
Reedus Rulz (2 years ago)
I am pushing 50. I wear eclectic and bohemian clothing and if people think it's wrong, too bad so sad.
Great styles and educate for women over 50! Love your suggestions on Women's Apparel .

I'm 58 and recently started dressing like the 40's...
I am not to that age yet, but when I get there one can bet that I will NOT push the sleeves up on my jackets.

Good video and valid tips.
Bettylou (2 years ago)
Wear what you want. Some women are very youthful and age is not relevant. Some are like the Duggar family and the clothing is extremely aging. Some are classic and some just cute. Be yourself.

I'm pushing 70 and don't accept this. I wear what I think suits me and in colours that I like. My hair is long ( waist length), never wear trousers or blazers only dresses My hobby is Playford dancing in Georgian costume. Don't tell me I'm too old for this too. Absolute tosh.........

morevaseret (2 years ago)
Good for you. We will keep to long hair. My Gran had her hair down to her knees. She wore it in two plaits wrapped around her head. She always looked so elegant. As a child when we went to stay with my grandparents, my sister and I used to love watching her at night when she undid her hair and brushed it. Happy memories. :)
MsRosieA (2 years ago)
+morevaseret Oh, LOVE IT!! I like long hair too but I used to work with this woman that was just 6 months older than me and she used to tell me to get my hair cut like her saying "Women of a certain age should have shorter hair - it's more flattering..." FORGET THAT! My hair is down to my nips (doesn't grow any longer :( ) - AND I LIKE IT! P.S love the whole "Georgian" thing too - beautiful..!

I've been dialing up my younger side, exercising and don't care what anybody thinks on my off days.
Gatto Nero (2 years ago)
How absolutely condescending this is -- from the too-young presenter speaking patronizingly about middle age to the use of the word "etiquette," which implies that certain styles of dress on a middle aged woman are somehow socially offensive. And the clothes featured are hideous. The cover-up coat in a "fun" color and the long pendant are such cliches. Women of any age should feel free to express themselves through their clothing and not be limited to anyone's idea of "tailored classics."
Erika Ruppert (1 year ago)
Gatto Nero I a well over 70 & know how to dress,depending on the occasion. Would not followso eone elses rules just like I dont keep up w the Joneses as we r all i dividuals
Just Me (2 years ago)
Being in my 50's I am still getting hot flashes and never wear a jacket over my shirt. I would burn up. I think this outfit would be nice for work. I like wearing jeans at home and going to the store.
TheBklynMe (2 years ago)
I, also agree with most of the comments here. This generic what 50+ should where, independent of personal style, body type & / or size is tiring. So I have a question for the commentors: Whom are you following on YouTube for style advice/tips? Or maybe just fashion videos videos you liked? Not necessarily, age appropriate because that just seems to be non starter but, I love to hear any stylist subscriptions which have been helpful/interesting. Thanks in advance.
TheBklynMe , I like “Busbee Style, “Lauren Messiah”, and “Dominique Sache”. All can be found on YouTube, and Erin Busbee also offers free downloads with her email subscription. All are very likable, informative, and a nice blend of classic & contemporary. Not boring!

Please don't presume to tell this 50+ year old what I want. I dress for me.
