Summer Fashion Finds

Some big changes are coming our way, (I’ll be sharing soon). It’s caused my writing projects to unfortunately be put on hold and it’s caused me to need to refresh my summer wardrobe! So I’ve had packages flying in and out of the house for a few months as I ordered things and returned a lot of them.

Finding summer clothes over 50 years old, that you actually LIKE, can honestly be challenging. I tend to stick to easily elevated, neutral basics that can be mixed and matched. Comfort is super important to me as well and I don’t really have a lot of room to take items that won’t get much wear.

I’d love for you to follow me on the LTK app. If you haven’t seen it in awhile, they are really knocking it out of the park in making that app SO fun and useful to use! You can follow me here.

For summer fashion over 50, here are some of my favorite finds for this summer:

Summer clothes are light and airy so they show every lump and bump. I’m happy to say that Shapermint came to the rescue! (and at a very affordable price). You know I love these Spanx basics, and I still do, but these Shapermint summer cami’s are the bomb. They hold you in, but are comfortable- not too tight. The quality is much better than I expected. I got black and white in size large, but going down a size would provide a bit more compression if thats what you’re after. The straps are adjustable and control the cleavage and the bottoms don’t ride up. They create a smooth silhouette under your clothes and can also be worn as stand alone pieces. The Linen shorts are described below.


Linen Shorts

These shorts are so good! They’re pull on shorts w/ a nice flat front. They have an elastic waist band in the back and side pockets that don’t stick out. They’re linen blend and machine washable. These are so chic and can be dressed up or down. Best part? They are under $25 in cart right now. They run true to size and I’m wearing a small. I have them in the color “flax” and black. They come in 10 colors.


Satin Skirt

If you don’t own one, a long satin skirt is a great piece for all year around! I love this long black maxi from Aritzia. There are endless ways to style a satin skirt and this one is cut so nicely and has a very flattering drape. I like this black one so much that I plan to get another one in the color “Denude”. this skirt runs true to size, comes in regular or tall and in mini, midi or maxi length I’m wearing a size 6.

And a Few Amazon Finds!

These sandals are a surprise. These are much more comfortable than a higher end pair I have that looks just like these. I’m really happy with this purchase. Highly recommend. They run true to size and come in several colors.

I also picked up this cute little summer dress from amazon as well. It’s a great little throw on piece that’s light and airy and could be dressed up or down. It’s simple, with cute detailing. Comes in loads of colors and I’m wearing a size medium.


I hope you found a few pieces for your summer wardrobe, or some outfit ideas for pieces you already own. Summer fashion over 50 or any age can be chic and comfortable. You may like this post on my Essential Skincare Over 50 or this one on Perimenopause & Menopause.
