Be Guaranteed to Look Knockout For Summer
Now it’s June, it’s officially summer.
So, it’s time to climb into pretty prints, lighter fabrics and sun-friendly colours that are perfect for summer
With all of those elements in mind, we have been looking at the Bonmarché Summer Lookbook to help you find all the easy-wear, easy-care summer pieces you want in sizes up to 24 – in other words lots of stylish clothes for over fifties.
Their summer lookbook has all the trousers, tops, swimwear and beachwear you want for a super stylish summer. And if you need pretty party and Occasion wear, there are great dresses (many with matching or toning jackets). There are gorgeous separates, too.
Here are just a few of our top picks in stylish clothes for women over 50 from Bonmarche for summer and holidays.`
SUMMER OUTFITS TO LOVE
When we are looking for stylish clothes for over fifties and looking for affordable plus size clothing, we love to put outfits together to make them ours.
Here are some terrific tops and bottoms to provide you with brilliant casual summer outfit ideas. This stunning navy midi skirt makes a superb outfit teamed with this off-the-shoulder Bardot top, while the printed palazzo pants (below) team perfectly with the red top to create another clever outfit. But, we also get versatility from all four pieces. By teaming each with different top-half or bottom-half and different accessories, we get several more outfits, too…
BEACH TO BAR
When we go summer clothes shopping, the key pieces we look for always include stunning swimwear. And then we look for some clever pieces we can throw on to take us from beach to bar…And we’ve found them all here. We love the curvy swimsuit (left) with tummy control that can be worn strapless when we want to avoid strap-lines. But we adore the one-piece in stunning black-and-yellow print, also with tummy control. That blouson design is very good camouflage after one too-many croissants from the breakfast buffet!
And for an easy to throw on dress for lunch by the pool or to sip a sundowner, we adore the pair (below). Both are in gorgeous summery prints. Both give us bare shoulders. But they also cover the tops of our arms. Win-win!
SUMMER OCCASIONS AND EVENINGS
Naturally, any wardrobe of stylish clothes for over fifties should include some stand-out summer occasion outfits, so we have been finding those, too.
Print is, of course, right on-trend. These two elegant Occasion dresses are not only on-trend but so super-pretty, too. We love the colours and the styling (and the length) of both, making either dress perfect for a summer wedding or a summer party or, frankly, any summer moment when we need to look polished.
If you are concerned about bare arms, a classic cardigan or a simple cardigan with embroidered sleeves, worn round the shoulders with the top button done up or fastened with a brooch is a very on-trend and super chic way to add cover when wearing a sleeveless dress…
We’d love to know which of these gorgeous pieces you would pack in your suitcase! Do comment below…
