Fashion Over 50: Summer Sunday Style Sweet Spot with Statement Jackets


The weeks of summer are soaring by. I was thinking I would need to interject some of my own pictures on Sundays, but I have found so many fabulous women over 50 this summer who have inspired me, there is no need to stick in my photos!!  Today, let's talk about the power of a statement jacket...
Meet my friend, Barbara, a strong, savvy boutique owner in San Antonio.  Barbara is loved by her customers for the chic beautiful styles she brings to them and for the chic inspirational style she displays herself.  
Barbara is a classic dresser, and often makes her own statements with classic styling as she has with this printed blazer and blouse for a beautiful summer look.  She wears her years proudly and is one determined business woman with the perseverance to see her through whatever comes her way. (Including an early spring tornado which almost shut down her business for good)  Her style says....I am in charge!

My favorite style writer, Stacy London, calls this the New A.G.E. style....Attractiveness, Generosity, and Experience shining through.  In fact, Stacy specifically writes, "Show your A.G.E.in a statement coat, in patterns and/or black-and-white.  Strong contrasts in general make bolder statements."  Almost seems as if Barbara read the book, THE TRUTH OF STYLE.  Stacy says this is the feminine version of power dressing. (If you would like to know more about the book, just click on the title)

I love jackets and how they work with pants, skirts or jeans.  I definitely think Barbara has hit the style sweet spot with this one.

  What about you...how do you feel about jackets for your over 50 wardrobe?  Do you wear them in the summer?

Tell us...and then enjoy some of these jackets I found for your consideration......

  2. Barbara's jacket and blouse are fabulous! She looks so polished and classy! As a classic dresser myself, I wear blazers and jackets all year. As you said Pam, they are "right" with everything! I'd love to shop in a boutique like hers. We have precious few of them where I kive, but I am within driving distance of a few good ones! This is the way to go for unique items that you won't see everywhere!

  5. I love the combo of prints with the jacket and blouse. I never would have thought to put those two pieces together -- but it looks fabulous. And, it offers a bit of creative inspiration! Thanks, Pam. These posts are so fun!
