The Perfect Date Night Outfit for Women Over 50 Styled High and Low

You may have a plan to go out with your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, or perhaps you just want to get dressed up and have a date night for no particular reason. After all, this is the time of year when most of us get get kind of cabin crazy. So I put together this outfit idea that I know I would wear, and I think you will love it too. First I styled it as if I had no budget at all, and then I found very similar pieces for a lot less cash. So here’s a chic date night outfit for women over 50 styled both high end and low price.

Perfect Date Night Outfit for Women Over 50

This “going out outfit” or “date night outfit” is easy to wear and ideal for women over 50. It starts with a silky high-neck blouse in a beautiful deep shade of red that is perfect for Valentine’s Day or any winter day. To stay warm and cozy and I paired it with straight leg black velvet pants, pointy toe black booties, a gold woven leather handbag and chunky gold earrings. Here’s how to style this outfit high and low.

The Deep Red High Neck Blouse

A high neck blouse with flattering ruching like this Paco Rabanne Stretch-Satin Turtleneck Top for $570 is to die for. But for less than one-tenth of the cost you can get this deep red CeCe Women’s Blouson-Sleeve Mock-Neck Blouse that’s on sale right now for $53.40.

Plush Black Velvet Pants

Black velvet pants add some texture and warmth to this date night outfit. You can invest in a pair of Frame The Slim Stacked Velvet Trousers which are on sale for $328.80. These basic high-waist straight leg pants are well worth the price because you will be able to keep them in your fashion arsenal for years to come. Or you can invest a lot less and pick up these Mango Straight Velvet Pants for only $29.99.

Black Pointed Toe Booties

Sure, you can wear pumps or heels to dress up this look, but why not do the same and still be comfortable? A pair of low heeled boots like these Bottega Veneta Tex Pointed Toe Booties are equally fancy with their golden heels, and they are low enough to walk in. These boots are perfection for $1,700. yes they are expensive but you will cherish them and wear them quite a lot. But you can also pick up these Vagabond Shoemakers Giselle Booties in a similar western silhouette for $200. You won’t have the gold heels, but you will save $1500.

The Shiny Gold Woven Shoulder Bag

A gleaming gold handbag like this gorgeous Bottega Veneta Knot-Embellished Metallic Intrecciato Plissé Leather Shoulder Bag for $5,200 will complete your look. It is like jewelry and pulls the whole outfit together with its wonderful woven texture. But if you don’t have a space $5,200 there’s an option! This Bisadon Woven Leather Handbag from Amazon in gold is only $67.99.

Chunky Gold Hoop Earrings

II adore these gold sculptural Khaite Olivia Small Gold-Tone Hoop Earrings for $850. They will add a bit of bling to anything you wear from a t-shirt and jeans to a formal gown. If you want a similar look for less, these Jenny Bird Doune Chunky Hoop Earrings are only $138.

Going Out Outfit Style Tips for Women Over 50

  1. Focus on the top! You’ll probably be seated at a table for dinner so the focus of your outfit should be on your top. And keep it flattering and comfortable! Look for features like the rushing at the neckline on the red top I choose for this outfit. The long sleeves make it easy to wear and you don’t have to worry about feeling too cold or hot (flash).
  2. Punch it up with accessories. My outfit has only 5 pieces, yet packs a lot of punch with the gold handbag and chunky gold earrings.
  3. Comfort is key. Wear covered-up, loose or body skimming clothes that don’t require special underpinnings and comfortable shoes. You are out to enjoy your date night evening!
