7 Must-Have Pieces • budget FASHIONISTA

Since we’re in the full swing of spring, let’s talk spring fashion for women over 60.

If you haven’t added a few new pieces to your wardrobe lately, you’re either still wearing jeans and hoodies from winter or you’re rocking last season’s looks. Either of those strategies is fine if you’re comfortable. But you might be feeling a little bored with your clothing options.

Just in case you’re ready to be inspired, here’s a spotlight on chic spring fashion for women over 60. Read on for seven pieces and four spring outfits suitable for the over-60 fashionista.

And in case you’re wondering, these aren’t the shapeless layers your grandma wore decades ago. They’re pretty, warm-weather clothes that fit the lady who doesn’t need to (or want to) show a bunch of skin. Think breezy blouses, stylish crop pants, and eye-catching midi skirts. Let’s dive in.

Spring fashion for women over 60

Outfit 1: Ruana, tank, and jeans

The ruana is your best friend if you want to play along in spring/summer style without exposing your shoulders.

I like the Paisley Medallion Long and Lean Ruana from Chico’s Off The Rack. The blue palette can flatter many skin tones, while the long hemline subtly adds the appearance of length to your upper body. It’s a lightweight piece that slips easily over a tank — including the Amazon-sourced tank below — and your favorite denim bottoms for a polished casual outfit.

  • COLLECTIBLE COLORS – From bright to…

You can wear the ruana in so many ways, too. If teaming it with a tank doesn’t feel right, try it over a three-quarter sleeved white t-shirt. Or, if blue is your color, combine it with a pastel blue top. The bottoms can be any coordinating, casual short or pant. Finish the outfit with closed-toe mules.

Outfit 2: Open-stitch cardi, tank or t, and twill pants

An open-stitch cardigan is another piece that’s demure without being prudish. It’s perfect for spring, too, because you’ll enjoy the added coverage on cooler evenings. Layer it over any casual top or tank of the same color for that mesh look that’s on point.

WHBM’s Open Stitch Cardigan will pair nicely with Gap’s Twill Cargo Pants. I’ve been wearing Gap Twill joggers on repeat lately, and they’re a divine change of pace from jeans. These cargo pants have a similar construction but with a slightly trendier shape. You can wear them with a fun sneaker or closed-toe sandal.

They’re available in khaki, sage, black, and off-white, with sizes from XXS to XXL.

Outfit 3: Peasant blouse, white pants

A floaty peasant blouse is always in style and bridges the spring-summer transition nicely. Try Anthropologie’s Tie-Neck Blouse on for size. You can wear it tucked into a chic pant for a sharp, sophisticated look. Or, go untucked over a shape-hugging pant for an easy, but polished vibe.

Lulus Chic Success White Straight Leg Pants will be a great partner to your peasant blouse. This pant is also a fun style statement, with the high waist, slight flare, and ankle hemline. Add a loafer mule and you may be the new style diva of your social circle.

Pant sizes available are XS to XL.

Outfit 4: Button-down, t shirt, and midi skirt

If you don’t have a white button-down in your closest today, consider investing in one. This is a piece that will wrack up miles in your rotation. You’ll wear it over tanks in the summer as a lighter version of a cardigan. In the winter, it goes wonderfully under blazers and sweaters. In between, you can don your button-down on its own, buttoned and tucked, tied in the front, or untucked over slim pants.

Venus’s Soft Button-Down Shirt is a nice option, available in sizes 2 to 24. Use it as a top layer with a t-shirt and Aimee’s Floral Drawstring Skirt, available at Zulily. You can leave the button-down open or tie it in the front, whichever flatters your shape better.

This floral skirt is a smoking deal at $23. It’s available in sizes small to 4X. The bold pattern makes a big statement, while the drawstring waist keeps things casual.
