Fashion Over 50: Fit Options In Skirts

On Sunday, I discussed how much I like the JJill Pencil Skirt.  Another place where I find affordable, well fit skirts is Dress Barn. I found this knit recently on sale and love the cream, pink and black print.  It is an easy skirt to style all year long.

On this day, I wore it with an open toe, mettalic shoe which has a small wedge to it.  Another day though, I will probably wear it with ballet flats.

There was one comment the other day about our over 50 knees.  I realize mine are not the best, but so far I do not see them as a reason to not wear skirts at all.  I am sure that will not always be the case!  This skirt is a little longer than the other one I had on earlier in the week and I do prefer this length.

I selected some Dress Barn skirts for your consideration below.  They are one retailer, like JJill, which covers all body types with their options and often have sales.   There is so much versatility for a skirt like this…can be dressed professional or casual.  I am really glad I found it!

Keep Smiling, Everyone!

  1. Love this outfit, Pam! I'm going to have to try a pencil skirt — it's so flattering. I started shopping Dress Barn about a year ago and always find wonderful clothes there. I like the top you have on, too.

  2. One of my coworkers introduced me to Dress Barn after I commented on how well-dressed she was. I enjoy reading your blog and that of Jennifer from A Well Styled Life.

  3. What gorgeous skirt and shoes. We don't have a Dress Barn here in NL Canada; but I do find some great things at the local thrift shops. I'm wearing a similar skirt today; but my shoes are no where as pretty as yours.

  4. That's a great length. I get frustrated with so many cute dresses that are so short, I wear them as tunics for a skirt or pants. Not that it is so bad — it's just I wish some of them had a few inches on them. Just above the knee would be nice.
