Dressing when you are over fifty does not mean giving up looking stylish and comfortable. However, for many people hitting the fifty mark brings some changes in body shape and appearance that make it necessary to consider the challenges that come with aging when selecting clothes, hairstyles, and make-up. If you are over fifty, you can enjoy classy and cutting-edge styles without looking like you selected your wardrobe from the junior department of a big box store. However, from head to toe, there are just some styles people over fifty should never wear.


1. Wild Hair Color

Crossing the line into the fifties does not mean giving up stylish hair, but fad and style are not the same. Candy-colored locks and Gothic black tresses while a little over the top, might be cool for the younger set but not for individuals over fifty. If you are not ready to give in to nature’s gray, the right hair color can look fresh, healthy, and yes, even youthful without competing with the adolescents. If you choose to color your hair, it is better to select a hue similar to your natural hair color.
