Happy Monday, all! Since the majority of the audience here is over 60, I decided to do a couple of posts just for us….Fall Outfits & Trends for women over 60.
I want to begin a discussion about fall outfits which explains why I purchase and wear the pieces I do.
My intention is to inspire you and give you ideas for your own wardrobes…as always, I will be honest about why I do what I do.
When looking through my clothing for cooler weather last year, I realized that many pieces I owned for fall outfits were just too heavy for a San Antonio warmer fall and winter.
So, I sold several of those pieces because we are predicted to have a similar season this year. I just do not believe I need the really heavy pieces any longer…but I kept a few just in case.
Any way, I gave myself a budget to purchase a few “lighter” garments and ones with better fit in the end-of-season sales.
As always, I want my wardrobe to mix and work well together to provide a plethora of different fall outfits.
I am pleased to say that my shopping, along with some great sales, has resulted in fall outfits I will enjoy. I returned a few, but kept the majority.
Allow me to remind you once again that my personal style adjectives are polished, approachable, creative, joyful, and current.
When I dress to tell the world these things about me with my clothing, then I leave the house with a confident smile.
FALL OUTFITS AND TRENDS FOR WOMEN OVER 60: TREND #1
FALL TREND #1: CARGO PANTS
Most women over 60 do not care about fashion trends for their fall outfits, but I do pay attention.
The reason is to communicate my style adjective CURRENT…hopefully keeping my style more youthful than frumpy.
My shopping for fall outfits birthed many pieces from Banana Republic Factory….the quality and prices are amazing…and really stretched my budget.
I love these pants…and they are still available in several colors…the fabric is tencel, cool and comfy.
These are the TENCEL Cargo Jogger...and I will be seen often in them this year. The color I am wearing is steel green.
I love the little edge these pants give to my casual fall outfits. You can see that I elevated their look here in two ways, but they are great with just a sweater or tee.
I wanted to show you this Chico’s Ruched Sleeve Jacket I also purchased in their sale in the color called Chocolate Fondant.
This jacket just speaks “polished” to me…yes, it does have shoulder pads, but I have never minded a strong shoulder on a jacket.
It is currently 67% off and I can dress it up or down for my fall outfits.
In the second picture, this lovely lightweight sweater is the FOREVER SWEATER in light toffee.
I am going to show you below that I liked this sweater so much that I ordered it in two more colors. Thought it is lightweight, it is warm and a great layering piece for fall outfits.
These are beautiful sweaters. and again…very comfortable for women over 60.
Of course, you may recognize my Easy Spirit booties in the second outfit…I will love wearing them this fall.

The lovely leather booties are the Sidney Dress Booties.…very comfy.
FALL OUTFITS AND TRENDS FOR WOMEN OVER 60: TREND #2
FALL TREND #2: VIBRANT COLOR
I know, I know….fall colors are always on trend during the season, but this year the trend is brighter and bolder.
I consistently encourage you to dress within your palette, and I usually do that.
But if you desire fall outfits & trends over 60, picking up a bold piece would fit right in.
Please don’t get frustrated, but I cannot link to this one. I found this topper in the gift shop at The Butchart Gardens.
It is like wearing a large scarf…and I love it. Completely me.
I am wearing it with Talbots Out & About Stretch Jogger in indigo blue.
I love these pants and the price per wear continues to go down lower and lower. They were my go-to pants on the cruise and continue to be at home for fall outfits.
Underneath the topper is another Forever Sweater in the color called Scorched Orange. Notice, there is always another percentage taken off at checkout with the BR Outlet.
FALL OUTFITS AND TRENDS FOR WOMEN OVER 60: TREND #3
FALL TREND #2: PLAID PANTS
I first noticed during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that plaid pants are a trend for fall outfits this year.
Since then, I have seen versions of plaid pants in every store I enter.
These brown ones are from Simply Vera Vera Wang at Kohl’s.
Online, all I could locate were the gray plaid High Rise Ponte Skinny Pants. But, I do like the fit and quality of these pants.
Once again, I am wearing the Forever Sweater in Costa Coffee…a deep brown.
I have owned this Eileen Fisher blazer for several years…the color is raisin.
And I have on the other pair of new Easy Spirit Kinndle Lug Sole Casual Loafers.
This gets our discussion about fall outfits & trends for women over 60 started. I will have two more fall trends to show you on Thursday.
It will probably surprise some of you how I am choosing to participate in the trend this year…so join in then.
I had planned to show you more options today for similar pieces to these, but the widget I use to curate those slideshows was not working…
I will either update this post, or hopefully add many more options to the Thursday post.
Ask or comment about anything here and hopefully I will see you tomorrow for another Would You Wear It exercise….until then…
