Stay Cool With Fun 50+ Summer Styles

By Vanessa Sheets−

Nothing is sexier than a woman who embraces her age with confidence and style. Part of aging gracefully means knowing how to dress like a grownup. And while most of us are not planning to break out the cut-off shorts and bikinis at the next family pool party, we don’t have to resign ourselves to sweltering under the shade in turtlenecks, either.

From cute coverups and swimwear to airy dresses, sandals, and bags, here are our top picks from the latest summer looks for women over 50:

  1. Summer is swim season, after all! Whether you’re planning to head to the beach or lounge by a pool, this ruched take on the basic “tankini” fits to flatter. The cut is perfectly balanced for a sexy, yet sporty look. La Blanca Swim; $89.

    Saks Fifth Avenue La Blanca Swim

  1. We love this cute bohemian floral tunic for those after-swim-moments when you want to wear more than just your swimsuit. Slip on a pair of sandals and this look could easily take you from lounging to casual patio drinks. Ella Moss Swim; $89.
  1. This breezy cotton shirt dress is easy to throw on and pair with heeled or flat sandals for effortless summer chic. Perfect for summer weekends spent at brunch followed by shopping. Velvet by Graham and Spencer; $150.
  1. We love everything about this kimono dress. The floaty fabric feels like silk against the skin; the wrap front closure visually trims the waist. This summer look will take you to bridal showers, church, and nearly every summer occasion. Privacy Please Plaza; $119.

    Wow! These basics would set me back $1,000! Wish you could have shown something more affordable for us over 50(or 60) women.
