Hit Your Style Sweet Spot: Leather for Fashion Over 50


Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40.  We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day.  After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning.  But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week.  We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence




I have a confession to make...in my 50s I was one of those who thought women over 50 could not wear leather.  But I kept seeing leather on women my age and older, and it looked amazing.  So I tried it...and loved it.  Whether you like the real thing or faux leather looks, I highly recommend it for a little cold weather fun!
I purchased my faux leather leggings at Soft Surroundings last year and I wore them often...with jackets, sweaters, tunics...and I wore them to work!  I feel very confident in them.

I added this jacket from Macy's to my wardrobe this year and I know I will wear it often once the cold weather comes.  It also looks great with denim and my leather skirt from Chadwicks of Boston.  I think my next favorite leather pieces are a couple of pair of leather boots and my leather gloves...which I love and I am so glad I bought them.




If you are not sure, then I encourage you to buy a garment like this jacket which just has a touch of a leather-look, but I honestly believe if you will take the plunge like I did, you will like it.  Somehow leather looks make me feel bold, sexy, and a little powerful! 

I selected a few beautiful garments on the market right now for your consideration, but first, let's see how JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE wears her leather!


Have a wonderful week, all!

  2. You look fabulous, Pamela! Selecting a garment with just a little leather is a great suggestion for those who are reluctant... And those faux leather leggings look wonderful on you!

    I bought some faux leather leggings last year and honestly didn't think I would wear them a lot, but I absolutely love them and have worn them countless times. And I'm absolutely in love with the moto jacket I just got..
