Enhance your shape when needed

A tailored dress can add shape or give the illusion of shape. Strapless dresses are great for an hourglass-shape when you go to the opera. A swing or empire dress hides a non-existing waist and looks awesome on women with an apple-shape. A-line dresses and fit-and-flare dresses can add the illusion of hips on inverted triangle body shapes. Straight-up-and-down bodies can gain shape with a tailored sheath. V-necks and vertical lines like princess seams give the illusion of height and have a slimming effect.

Show skin strategically

Go for a little teaser with skin. This feature can be your collar bone, your underarms, neck, whatever seems best. Use your jewelry to highlight your best features.

In fashion over 50, less skin is more. Flaunt what you have left. #beautyatanyage Click To Tweet

Shoes make or break a look

Wear heels that you can walk in with grace and comfortably to look fit and hip. A chic wedge heel or sturdy heel – thanks goodness they are a big trend right now – is much easier to walk in than a stiletto. A wedge or sturdy heel looks self-confident, but still sexy with a deep vamp.

A heel you can walk on is more sexy than a sky-high stiletto on which you wobble. #shoelove Click To Tweet

Be aware: Red adds weight

Go for a muted red or dark red when you don’t want to look heavier than you are. Go for a flattering shade of red from your palette when you want to wear red.

Always wear colors that are flattering you. There is no need to wear Valentine's Day red on Valentine's Day. Click To Tweet

Dress with the weather, place and commute in mind

On a Valentine’s date over 50, you want to look attractive and sexy without going over board. You always will look your best when you don’t sweat or feel cold. Thus, when you pick your outfit keep in mind the dress code of the place you will go. When you will use public transportation, dress for the outside temperatures and weather. Have a cover-up when wearing a cocktail dress.
