3 Summer Outfit Ideas for Women Over 50 To Wear On Repeat

Summer is finally here and if you are like me, you want to be prepared for any occasion that may arise. I am usually not a very spontaneous person. However, in the summertime, if I have several outfits already put together, I can be ready for anything. I can say, “Yes, I will meet you for lunch.” “I can go to see your son play baseball.” “Yes I’ll go to the street fair.” “OK, let’s go to the music festival!” and “I’d love to have cocktails on your patio.” So often we are not inclined to do things because we don’t feel prepared. That’s why I put together these 3 summer outfit ideas for women over 50.

3 Summer Outfit Ideas For Women Over 50

These 3 basic summer outfit ideas are sort of like uniforms. You can wear them on repeat for different occasions, or you can interchange the pieces with variations of the same theme. For example, wear a different blouse or pair of sandals with the same pair of jeans.

If you want to make your summer wardrobe styling really simple and easy, you can wear the same handbag or shoes with all 3 outfits. These outfit ideas will help for when you travel as well.

Putting a few different outfits together for each season always helps me out. For summer I think about the occasions I will need the outfits, as well as the time of day and the temperature. In most cases, even on hot summer days, I always include a jacket or a long sleeve layer. Finding a jacket or wrap at the last minute can be one of the most stressful things about getting dressed, so it’s best to have that thought out as well. Most of my summer events and parties are very casual, but I still like to look put-together.

Summer Jeans Outfit Idea

I live in jeans, and in the summer a light faded cropped pair with a little bit of stretch are the way to go. Wear them with a short, puff or flutter sleeve button-front white shirt, slip on some easy to walk in slide wedge sandals and a small cross-body bag. A linen or cotton blazer in black adds sophistication to the look if the summer day or evening is chilly. This outfit is your answer for what to wear to an outdoor concert, a street fair, a flea market, or a summer day trip.
