Try Our Casual Summer Outfit Ideas for Older Women

Summer is always an interesting time of the year for older ladies. When it comes down to what to wear, it’s easy to feel uncomfortable with what is traditionally appropriate, especially when it means you miss out on the latest trends and styles. 

While there aren’t any concrete rules regarding body type, it’s worth it to consider your body type, especially when the warmer weather robs you of layers you'd rather have. 

At Vibe, we believe the only things important in fashion are whether you feel comfortable, confident, and flattered by what you wear. Being miserable because you’re wearing something too tight or loose in the summer is the worst, and we’d rather avoid it if possible. 

In today’s blog, we’ll look at some of the best outfit ideas for ladies over 40 to wear during the summer.

Denim Shorts & Sandals

Run Around Denim Shorts

Summer means breaking out those shorts and having fun. Sure, you’ll see a lot of teenage girls wearing denim shorts, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to sport a similar look that works better for a grown woman as well. 

Pairing denim shorts with a loose-fitting shirt and some simple sandals is an enduringly great look that works to keep you looking and feeling appropriate while still having some fun in the process! 

Colorful Top & White Jeans

Sunny Tops & Delilah Flares - Fringed Hem

Tee shirts are worn all the time during summer, and it’s easy to see why; they’re breathable and pair well with just about anything! 

For a sophisticated look that still lets you embrace a broad color spectrum, try using a tried-and-tested t-shirt and white jeans combo. 

Black Dress & Sandals

While it may feel counterintuitive to wear black in the summer, you’ll be amazed at how well a black dress can perform even during the summer. Black is also a naturally slimming color, making it ideal for looking mature and confident while beating the heat simultaneously. 

Pair with you favorite sandals, a hat, and a tote bag, and voila! Instant style and elegance. 

Shirt Dress & Wedges

Shirt dresses are a fantastic way to feel comfortable without sacrificing any style in the process. Shirt dresses look great on anyone and are very forgiving of any perceived body imperfections. Simply combine with colorful wedges, and you’ll be good to go! 

Jeans & Kimono

The jeans and kimono combo is a stalwart of ladies' casual fashion, and we’d be remiss not to mention it. If you have a pair of skinny jeans you’d like to keep wearing, styling them with a neat kimono is a surefire way to success. 

Kimonos are lightweight, naturally flowy, and come in a range of colors and hues to make them instantly adaptable to various occasions. As a result, their an obvious choice for anyone looking to feel casual, confident, and comfortable during the summer.
