Being a woman over 50 comes with its own challenges, a lot of them too. One thing we battle is what the heck are we supposed to wear now that we’re in our 50s. Are we supposed to shop in the ‘old lady section’ now? That sounds horrifying. It’s frustrating to try to figure out what to wear every day. We don’t want to look like we’re trying to be 25 again. We just want to be comfortable and happy.
This list should help. Here are 10 things women over 50 should never wear. Like, never.
The Opinion of Others
Can you live your life for yourself, please? Does it matter what others think of you? Most of them don’t even think highly of themselves. Let them point, stare, and whisper, I say. Give them something to talk about, I say!
You should never wear the opinion of others. Ever.
Baggage From the Past
Drop all the big, ugly, heavy bags. They don’t look good on you. They are weighing you down and, if I might add, aging you quickly. Do yourself a favor and get rid of all your emotional baggage. We’re moving forward in life, not backward.
None of the stuff from yesterday matters today or tomorrow.
So Margaret looks good for her age, and “you’d never know she was a day over 50!” they say. Who cares? Good for Margaret. She’s beautiful, and you know what, so are you! There’s no need to be jealous of other women.
We’re all beautiful and amazing in our own unique ways.
Fear of Getting Old
Yes, we’re getting older. Life goes on. We’re not 25 anymore. But life is what you make it. You’re not dead yet, and you have no idea when you will die. Time’s flying by! Do things you always wanted to do, try new things, travel, and live out loud.
Live it up now, babe.
Seriously, stop wearing (or being) the doormat. You’ve worn it for far too long. You are no one’s b****. Find your voice, start using it, and start saying NO to all these people who have been taking advantage of you all this time.
Tell more people to eff off!!
Time to grow up. We’re not in high school anymore, and besides, that catty look looks horrible on you. Disgusting, if you will. Life isn’t a competition. We’re all in this together. Put your pointy finger down and stand tall with your sisters! The world is already a heavy place to be in.
Lift a sister up, don’t put her down.
If you’re still judging others, stop it. You are no better than anyone else, and no one is better than you. Judging others makes you ugly no matter how beautiful you are on the outside. In case you missed the memo, your poop stinks just as much as the next guy’s.
You can judge me when you’re perfect.
Like baggage, regret also ages you. So you didn’t do this or that, so you never told so and so something, so you never went to that place. So what? Regret does nothing to enhance your life and only makes you sad and miserable.
Burn them. Have a croc-destroying party. Donate them if you want, but get rid of them!!
Haha, I’m kidding. Girl, we need comfy shoes. I feel ya. For me, the perfect shoe is a pair of flip-flops. I own way too many, and I love each pair.
But listen, you can wear Crocs all you want. We don’t care anymore.
It’s time to turn that worry frown upside down and make it a smile. Life is short, and we’re over halfway through our lives. There’s no time to worry or hold back or not live the life you deserve and desire. Smile at strangers, eat the cake, go to foreign lands, say hi to the cute boy…. do things, and stop worrying if it’s right or wrong or if people will talk.
If it makes you happy, it’s right.
What Not to Wear Over 50
So clearly, you can see clothes have nothing to do with this post. Why? Because it should never ever matter how you dress or what you wear. It’s what’s on the inside that counts, not how you look.
Just be a good human and wear whatever you want, as long as it brings you joy, that’s all that matters.
