How To Look Glamorous After 50
Have you ever worn a Tuxedo for Women? If you have, I am sure you made an impression. Remember Flashdance, well, need I say more… How to look glamorous after 50 is not just a matter of style, it’s attitude Babes! A T T I T U D E!.
The Little Black Dress is a classically elegant cut black dress, originally. Designers were however inspired to level up the black dress from its original style and turn it into an all-time must-have and essential item in every woman’s wardrobe. It is considered a classic of women’s fashion.
A tuxedo for women is the ultimate stylemix of classy and sexy. You can do no wrong, all eyes will be on you, worn correctly. Believe me! Most women don’t dare, they stick to their safe haven of wearing a little black dress or a cocktail dress. Why not?! You must always feel comfortable with your look, that is the be-all and end-all.
However, while as long as we can remember, the little black dress is considered an ultimate essential to a complete wardrobe, most fashion stylists and observers agree that women wearing a tuxedo to an event definately make a statement. It’s like adding Glitter, Glamour AND Gloss.

Glam Night Out Outfit Ideas For the 50 Plus Woman Who Dare to Wear a Tuxedo for Women.
The Tuxedo Blazer I chose for this Look is of high quality fabric, it’s fully lined slim fit guarantees a modern touch with the asymmetrical hem. Now there are 2 reasons I am showing you this Slimfit Waistcoat, the first being that many men in our lives have a waistcoat in their wardrobe, which we can borrow for the occasional Glam Night Out. Secondly, with its slim fit it also fits women pretty well. Check this waistcoat available in over 20 colors! I actually also found Waistcoats for Women available in so many gorgeous colors. See below!
The matching Black Flare Pants could be added to your Capsule Wardrobe, I love the comfort and body shape these give me.
You can however also buy the real Slim Straight Tuxedo Pants if you want to go all out.
Read the Official Spanx Product Description here: “The Perfect Black Pant, Ankle Tuxedo Slim Straight is your new go-to for any outfit or occasion. Thanks to—seriously, magical—smoothing ponte fabric and a comfortable, pull-on design, this style offers a sleek look, a great butt and features a straight-leg cut, making for a style so flattering, you’ll wear them again and again! Best. Pants. EVER. Offered in a range of sizes (XS-3X), petite and tall.”
Glamour and Heels and Bags
I couldn’t resist adding a Tote Bag reason being that I often wore Tuxedos for Women in my days as a Corporate Event Manager. When you fly from Vienna to Paris just for the night you need a few more things than just Lipstick.
But it is not an essential item if you are just having a Glam Night Out. Here I would add a Cross Body Bag, a Clutch would do, but I personally feel happier with a Cross Body Bag as I don’t have to hold it in my hand all night long.
What's The Occasion? Looking for Something Different?
Surely you have enough Ornate and Statement Jewelry already but should we really ignore these Lace Chokers? I don’t really like them for an everyday look, I think they deserve the Special Night Out Treatment. In everyday life, this can look a bit tacky or weird, at least it’s not my taste, but luckily tastes differ, so wear what you want.
These Tassle Statement Earrings first reminded me of curtain endings, but at a second glance, now I actually love them as they go well with the straight Tuxedo Look. They just add a touch of pizzazz, if you ask me.
HOT HOT HOT ... Should Women over 50 wear Red Lipstick? You Bet!
What exactly is an ageless look? Or an age appropriate outfit? How do you balance looking hot but sophisticated? Many women over 50 don’t feel confident wearing certain styles including Bright Cherry Red Lipstick, well I wear what I want and so should you!
I have also added Waistcoats for Women, incase you don’t have the already-in-hubbys-wardrobe-option as mentioned above.
So? How Do You Feel About Wearing A Tuxedo For Women?
Seriously, if you are one of those women over 50, who is in the process of rethinking her wardrobe and fashion style, then maybe consider this hot and dashing look for those glamorous evenings to come.
