Have you ever noticed how some women seem to look casually elegant over 50 without even trying? Everything these women wear looks so polished and put-together, and the end result looks casually elegant. Think of Katherine Hepburn, Sarah Jessica Parker, Julia Roberts, and Jennifer Anniston; these women pull off casual elegance with ease.
What is Casually Elegant?
Casually elegant is all about finding a balance between comfort and sophistication. You want to look put-together but not like you’re trying too hard. It is a blend of casual and formal elements that create a sophisticated yet effortless look. The key is to aim for a look that is both comfortable and stylish, or what’s known as “casually elegant.”
Examples of Dressing Casually Elegant Over 50
Here is an example of pairing a casual button-down shirt with dress pants. This look is casual but still looks polished and put together.
This example of wearing a simple sundress with a denim jacket looks casually elegant while maintaining a relaxed and comfortable look.
What Clothing Do You Need To Dress Casually Elegant Over 50
There are no rules or lists of clothing needed to dress casually elegant. However, I came up with a mix of clothing that is both comfortable and polished. This list of clothing items can help you achieve a casually elegant over 50 look:
Tailored blazers: A well-fitted blazer can add a touch of sophistication to any casual outfit.
Button-down shirts: A crisp, clean button-down shirt can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.
Trousers or dress pants: Tailored trousers or dress pants can help to create a polished and put-together look.
Simple sundresses: A simple sundress can be dressed up or down with the right accessories and shoes.
Denim: Denim can be a great option for a casually elegant look, whether it’s a pair of jeans or a denim jacket.
Flats or loafers: Comfortable flats or loafers can add a touch of elegance to a casual outfit.
Classic pumps: A pair of classic pumps can dress up a casual outfit and are perfect for a semi-formal or formal event.
Simple jewelry: Simple but elegant jewelry, such as pearls or a delicate necklace, can add a touch of sophistication to a casual outfit.
A neutral-colored handbag: A neutral-colored handbag can help to elevate a casual outfit and can be paired with many different outfits.
Casually elegant is a personal style, and what might be considered casually elegant for one person might not be for another. The key is to find a balance between comfort and polished appearance that works for you. This is my attempt at dressing casually elegant.
I have incorporated several of the items from the clothing items needed list above. I’m wearing a button-down shirt, white trouser, jeans, simple jewelry, and carrying a neutral handbag. The boyfriend shirt is oversized, but that is the style right now. They look great worn open with a shirt underneath, tied at the waist, tucked using a half-tuck method, and worn loose and oversized.
The drop-shoulder cashmere pullover is so soft, and the neutral color can be worn with almost anything. The pullover is almost out, so I’ll try to find similar options for you.
I’ve become a big fan of Brahmin handbags. They look beautiful, they are high quality, and they are a timeless design. The Alabastor color is perfect for any time of the year, and I can’t wait to carry this bag in the spring and summer. Here are other designs in this color.
Since Brahmin handbags are on the expensive side, here are a few “similar” bags.
Wide-leg pants are huge, and I don’t mean through the legs. They are extremely popular, and I love how they look. Wide Leg pants are great for most women since they balance out the bottom half and this work for everyone except those with narrow shoulders. I’m wearing a size 8 in these jeans, and they fit great.
I’ve had these neutral suede pumps for over a year, and they are still some of my favorites. They look great with everything, and I’ve certainly gotten my monies worth from them. They run true to size, and I’m wearing my usual size 9.
