Welcome to the Over 50 fashion edit. This month Jennifer and I are joined by our friend Tania from 50 is not old (I know 50??!!). We are talking about our favorite Summer Accessories. To be honest, in the heat of Summer, I wear very few accessories. Big heavy necklaces, bracelets, and earrings just don’t cut it with Summer’s light fabrics. For Summer I prefer a natural pallette of bone, raffia, shells, and wood. I wear mostly linen, and the natural elements compliment the the weight and texture of the linen. Let’s take a look at Natural Summer Accessories for Women over 50.
None of these accessories are pricey. You can find them on Ebay, Etsy, and in inexpensive shops. I prefer bone accessories that have some age. I try and pick up interesting ones on Ebay, Etsy, and second-hand shops when I see them. Here are a few of my favorites that I wear regularly in the summer.
You can dress them up or down. I am wearing a favorite pair of vintage bone earrings with a bit of silver, a bone bracelet with silver, an old straw hat, and a favorite michael stars tee (on sale), and the cp shades jen pant. All items or similar are linked at the bottom of the post.
In this photo I am wearing a couple of other CP shades favorites, the lily skirt, and a shirt that is no longer available with the same accessories, but I added a horn link necklace that can be worn long or short, and switched out the bracelets for a couple other favorites.
You may have seen this picture of my pal Kim and me from a few weeks ago. I a m wearing cross earrings in bone, a couple of bone bangles, a Target tote, and you guessed it a CP Shades tunic (old).
Here I am wearing a J Jill linen shirt with the lily skirt, the bone accessories, and those inexpensive mia sandals you need to grab!
Here I am wearing the Tula hat, my favorite J Crew Linen shirt, a jute belt, the cp shades lily skirt and the mia sandals.
I favor the monochromatic textural combinations with the natural accessories although I have been known to wear them with color as well. You can barely see them here but I have mixed the bone bracelets with a quartz that compliments the green/mustard in the outfit. The earrings are bone.
