I don’t know about you but I am hanging on to summer as long as I can. This time of year I can’t help but dream of my favorite fashion season Fall. In California particularly Fall has a way of sneaking up on you. Let’s look at some of the trends for 2019 that we in the over 50 range can actually embrace. Apparently, we will be revisiting the 60’s and 70’s. The fall season’s collection combines “colors from the American Southwest, with prep school styling”. The upcoming fall season will be channeling Ali McGraw, Jane Birkin and Annie Hall (via Diane Keaton). So, the question is, what are the over 50 fall fashion trends that we can actually wear.
According to those in the know, green, leopard, maxi skirts, leather, suits, plaids, faux fur and lace will be big this season. As in every season there are always a few trends that we can all embrace no matter our age. These are the three trends that I can personally embrace and maybe you can too.
#1 Maxi Skirts
I know I thought I was too old for this trend. Turns out it is actually quite flattering. It covers EVERYTHING up. The skirt is the linen lily skirt from Cp Shades that you saw me wearing in my post How to Stay Stylish In a Heatwave . It can easily be worn into fall with the addition of my leather moto jacket and these blondo nina boots. I think I might be in love they actually have a heel and so far very comfortable yippee ! The leopard shirt is from J Crew.
I am wearing this ensemble with an old necklace from French Kande. I will link similar below
I accessorized the outfit with a very old leopard belt and handbag from J Crew and Madewell mules.
The Chicos shirt covers the bum thankfully. Otherwise, I would not be able to pull this off.
I consider leopard a neutral and I am so happy it continues to be popular. This is the Sophie Sweater from J Crew., my only new purchase in this post. I love this sweater. It is lightweight (perfect for fall and later under a coat if need be), and falls and flatters beautifully.
I embraced this trend many years ago, and I still like it. A little goes a long way at our age. I love this Peruvian Connection poncho (actually I LOVE everything they do), and it is on sale. I included it in my how to rock an over 50 travel post back in April. I paired it with the same faux leather leggings and an American Indian bracelet (similar)that I have owned for a while, and Vincent Platero Earrings that were a gift from my husband.
