Clothing Advice & Fashion Tips for the Older Woman in 2021


With the New Year just around the corner, now is the perfect time to browse some of the best fashion trends for the older woman coming in 2021. Here you can find all the clothing advice and fashion tips for the older woman in 2021, so you can look stylish and feel fantastic.


Smock Dress

With its loose fitting style, a smock dress is flattering for women of all ages. Practical and easy to wear, a smock dress can be worn with sandals and a light cardigan for spring and summer, then layered with tights and jumpers for a cosy autumn winter look too. Smock dresses in all colours and sizes are set to make a big comeback for the older woman in 2021.

Check Prints

Check prints are also a bit wardrobe must-have for the older woman in 2021. Whilst the fabric by itself may bring to mind a picnic blanket, actually, a simple one colour check print in either blue or red can look incredibly fashionable and stylish. Why not try a loose-fitting check print shirt over bootleg jeans, or a maxi check print dress for a touch of Parisian chic too.

Puffed Sleeves

Puffed sleeves are back from the ’80s and this time they have had a stylish makeover for 2021. The ideal shape for the older woman, puffed sleeves add drama to a simple top or dress. A bonus is that these types of tops can also conceal the upper arm area, which is a part of the body that many older women prefer to cover up, whilst showing off slim wrists and bringing the eye upwards to show off a gorgeous face! Just remember to keep your accessories simple and hair sleek in order to keep the look on-trend for 2021.

Shearling Coats

Another big fashion tip for older women in 2021 is a shearling coat. These coats often come with a removal fur lining, making them the perfect 2021 wardrobe investment piece to take you from spring and summer to autumn and winter too. A shearling coat is perfect for a range of styles and body shapes, with fits available in a variety of lengths to show off a slim waist or hide the tummy area if you prefer. The simplicity of a shearling coat makes it the perfect outerwear companion for any look, so you can easily wear it day-to-day, as well as for going out in the evenings too.

Colour Block Puffer Jackets

Colour blocking may seem a bit of a scary trend at first, but thanks to the colour block puffer jacket, colour blocking has never been more flattering and easy to wear, which is why it is now such a big fashion trend for the older woman in 2021. Pair with trousers and a top in the same colour palette for added fashion points! The colour block puffer jacket also looks great thrown over a simple white t-shirt and straight-leg jeans as well.
