I'm Honey!

As a woman who has lived through many passages and learned through my larger than life experiences (positive and negative), I’ve discovered how to take a big empowering bite out of life.

How to Find Your Style After 50 by Looking Back

Your style after 50 stays true and steady even though “fashion” is here today gone tomorrow. Some say, “Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.” Some say, “History repeats itself.” I say the truth is somewhere in the middle, actually. Today, I am sharing some thoughts about what my favorite ensembles have taught me about style after 50 and feeling confident at every age.

Style After 50 Means Loving Your Body!

When it comes down to it, finding your style after 50, I say wear what makes you happy.

I am proud of my body. Are you proud of yours? I hope that you are. If you are not, I hope you’re on the road to loving the body you are in.

My body has done me well. It has given birth to my beautiful children, who have created my adored grandchildren, or, as I call them, my “grands.” It has battled cancer several times and won. I have used it to show love and I have used it to stand tall.

I love my body. Do you love yours?

And so, I noticed as I reviewed my favorite looks, I tend to pick pieces that are flattering, sophisticated, and while certainly not revealing, they are body-conscious. They hug my body—which seems only fair… after all, it is loved.

I do believe that a well-tailored, body-conscious outfit can be one of the most flattering items that a woman of any age can wear. What say you?

Take (Style) Risks!

You know yourself better than anyone, you know what risks you’re willing to take. I say push it a bit more!

I’m not exactly conservative when it comes to fashion. I take calculated risks because I know who I am, and I know who I want to be. I can have a little fun and think outside the box when it comes to style after 50. Do you enjoy the adventure of fashion, too? 

When it comes to style outside of the box, sometimes I stumble, typically, I soar.

And I believe, darlings, that one doesn’t need to show skin to be sexy!

Speaking of which, some days I feel downright sexy. Do you?

Fill Your Life—and Style After 50—with Color!

I love to add color to otherwise neutral outfits, particularly with accessories.

As I often say, I walk on the sunny side of the street! After all, this is the side where flowers grow… and I don’t mean wallflowers!

As I look at the outfits I felt most beautiful in over the years, color is a recurring theme. From the cheerful stripes on this colorful cape, pictured above, to the boldness of my signature red lip color. When cultivating my style after 50 I don’t shy away from vibrancy. Do you?

The clothes may not make the woman, but they certainly can make an impact on how we feel about ourselves.

I think that one of the reasons that I embrace color is that it’s a choice that reflects who I am on any given day. From fiery scarlet to cool charcoal, I’m not one color, I’m a complicated kaleidoscope of hues.

Accessorize Your Style After 50

In accessories, I trust! Use them to add that special something.

I always say accessories add spice to your outfit and your style after 50—they can change the look of one outfit from casual to empowered or dressy.


I think glasses are the cat’s meow. Dress yours up, darling, because your glasses tell a lot about the you in you. I dearly love and cherish my glasses. I tint all my glasses in different shades of blue. 

Glasses are probably the first accessory a person notices. And, even more so, they reflect one’s personality. I think of my glasses as jewelry. I visit certain shops because they have specialists who know their brands. They also know me. I choose the person with the most experience and the most years in the industry to be my glasses guru. I know what I like. They know the fit. This season I added three to my collection. A pair of Chanel and  2 pairs of Christian Dior sunglasses.

Hand Bags

Each one of my handbags is a treasure. I do not have tons, but what I have, I love. I usually buy one or two a year. I adore my pink Chanel tote and Christian Dior tote.


I never adored small bracelets. I swoon over large cuffs because they make a statement. Last summer after much deliberation I gave in to the small bracelet. I purchased several!  

My favorites are very different from one another. One is an Hermes reversible thin leather strap blue on one side and camel color on the other. And the other is also rather dainty. It is small with gold balls and a tiny diamond rondel. The designer is Sydney Evan. I wear them with my large watch. The others are fun and colorful, and I am enjoying them.


I cannot forget earrings! I bought emerald green earrings in Santorini, Greece. They are Lucent earrings by Swarovski . While I was in the Swarovski shop, I also bought a necklace.

When I shop for accessories, I try to be very diligent. I take my time. On trips, I usually don’t have a salesperson. I know what I like; therefore, I don’t need advice. But to be frank, I make most of my errors on trips. I need my salespeople!!!!

Women Over 50, Your Style Should Make You Feel Good

My favorite looks illustrate who I am and who I am becoming. I am growing, changing, experimenting, and doing it all with happiness, confidence, and kindness.

    You are inspiring me to try more color, I am such a black and neutral girl having more fun with accessories. Now my husband loves color and wears a lot of it in his shirts, ties and pocket squares????.

  2. Toni Cabrera says:

    I love your outfits. I also love your vitality and love of life.
    I am 64 and just retired from the Corporate World.
    I have always dressed in what I love at the moment.
    Most all of my clothes come from one of my favorite stores “Chicos”.
    Very contemporary and fun for a woman like myself who is very young in Spirit.
    I also love jeans and a eye popping top with wedges for casual look….then some days, a beautiful gauze outfit.
    I love getting older and experimenting. The next thing for me is letting my hair go its natural color. That’s HUGE for me……

  3. Kathy DeWolfe says:

    Love the cape!

  4. Jeanne says:

    You inspire me to be the best me. My gray hair says to me I am doing it my way and I feel confident and at peace with myself. Your articles help me to continue this journey with confidence. Thank you and keep writing about personal issues we all encounter and about fashion and where to find specific pieces. I am still in search of a choker necklace like yours.

    Hurray for us Chico ladies! When you purchase an item you can be sure that it will make a new outfit with things already in your closet. I love a store that puts much thought into dressing us older babes with comfort and flair. I can and do wear their clothes everywhere!

  7. Maureen Scicchitano says:

    Love your style and attitude!!

  8. Theresa Levy says:

    You have always looked very chic and creative in you choice of outfits. Admire your ability and taste. Love., Theresa

  9. joni says:

    I love the outfit with the colorful pants and fedora! I love your bold outfits which are never too sophisticated. You have a very approachable playful style, which is very inspiring.

  10. D. Porter says:

    “I want to be like you when I grow up!” I have to admire from afar because osteoporosis and the accompanying body and posture changes prevent my wearing the trim, fitted outfits that you wear so beautifully. The trim waistline I took pride in is no more. Although we may be a small number, we still like being somewhat fashionably dressed even in looser attire. Could you help us with this issue? I am still wonderfully blessed. Thank you!

  11. Lynn Winchester Burns says:

    My goodness, I dearly love your style, Honey Good! You always say a classic accessory will never be out of style and can be ageless. Yesterday I was shopping and had on a belt I had bought over 20 years ago. Chanel style with black leather, chains and pearls. A 24 year old woman came up to me and asked where I got my belt because she wanted one too! Made my 63 year old self feel ageless, not invisible and happy!
