Dress Styles for Women Over 50
 
 
If you've always found dresses quite tricky to wear without either looking like a teenager or dressing like your mother, then here are a few ideas for dress styles when it comes to fashion over 50. 
 
If you need to disguise those figure flaws then go for a cropped sleeve to cover bingo wings, draping or an empire line to disguise a flabby stomach, and a fuller skirt to skim over thick thighs and hips.
 
Maxi dresses are great for hiding chunky legs and ankles and are so on-trend at the moment, even for daywear. A wrap-style dress covers a mulitude of sins and is both timeless and ageless. Dark colors will make you look slimmer or choose a colour that brings life to your skin, hence why deep reds and pinks look good on older women.
 
It's often tricky to find stylish dresses with sleeves, so I've included a few of these in this collection. A cropped, three-quarter sleeve is more slimming than a short or long one, as it finishes at the thinnest part of your arm.
 
The ruched print dress from Fifty Plus (below) is a great figure fixer as this style is perfect to cover a flabby stomach and ample hips, and the blue draped dress from Marks and Spencer will also hide figure flaws such as bingo wings and large stomach and hips. The print skirt dress from Twiggy at Marks and Spencer
 is especially slimming for those with a big bust and the gathered daisy dress will give a boyish figure curves.
