We’ve picked 4 famous and fabulously fashionable ladies who all have very different styles and found matches to get their looks. If you’re a classic, edgy, boho or sharply-dressed, we have you covered. All of these girls are over 50 and rocking clothing like it’s no-one’s business. This week we will cover the elegant Carmen Dell’orefice and fashion designer Caroline Herrera, and next week’s blog will showcase the boho style of Instagram famous Sarah Jane Adams and chic actress Emma Thompson.

Carmen Dell’orefice

If grandeur is your game, then Carmen is the name! Opulence done well, these styles suit the world’s longest working model to a tee. Carmen softens her long frame with flowy palazzo pants, clever layering or a strategic neck tie that can make an entire look. A monochromatic colour palette makes for an interchangeable wardrobe, swapping around creams, blacks and whites make dressing easy… you can always add colour in with your accessories if the mood takes you. It’s the extra’s that elevate Carmen’s outfits regardless of their colour. Don’t view her style as simple, she knows just the right number of things to add- layered necklaces, on-trend hat or the way she places her blazer are all little touches that this beauty knows will catapult her into chic perfection.

Carolina Herrera

Do you have that friend who manages to nail the sedated glamour aesthetic? You know and adore her and she always looks amazing yet effortless? That has to be how Carolina Herrera’s friends feel about her. Everything is refined but doesn’t venture into the realm of stuffy. The one defining feature that creates that refined style? Texture, texture and more texture. Tweed, rattan, fringing, weave, suede or velvet all add an expensive vibe to an item. Well, we know Carolina’s clothing is clearly expensive but a neat way for your clothing to look pricier than it may be is with texture. Even Carolina’s shoes are a fabric finish.  Girl’s got style.
