Casual Clothes for 70 Year Old Woman
In your everyday life, you don’t want to be thinking too hard about what clothes you’re going to wear to run your daily errands. I personally swear by the shirt/jeans combo! It’s simple, yet versatile and gives you an elevated yet casual appearance in no time! A pair of straight white jeans is an absolute must for every woman’s closet regardless of age! If you have a long day planned ahead of you, and you need an outfit that you can easily transition from daytime to nighttime with, a silk shirt will never let you down! Pair with a few stacked necklaces, comfortable white sneakers, and a matching handbag, and you’re good to go!
Styling a Baggy Shirt with a Colorful Pattern
Pattern shirts are incredibly flattering for women over 70! They give you a vibrant and youthful appearance and allow your true personality to shine through your clothes! When it comes to styling patterns, I always suggest picking two colors from that piece of clothing – one neutral, one contrasting (or “statement” color). With the neutral color, in this case, that’s white, you’re going to build the base of your outfit. If you’re wearing a patterned shirt, use the neutral color for your pants, overcoat, and complementary jewelry. The statement color, in this case – blue, is used in your accessories. That would be shoes, a bag, a hat, and a scarf.
Monochromatic Outfit Paired with a Colorful Accessory
Grece Ghanem is undeniably the current 70+ fashion icon that all generations are looking up to! Here we have a masterclass on turning a simple monochromatic look into a fashionable and elegant street-style outfit. For ultimate comfort during the day, choose a pair of pants with a wide-leg fit. The baggy V-neck sweater with a slightly cropped fit will give you a modern and youthful appearance. The monochromatic look will create a coherence between the two pieces that exudes class and maturity. Now, the fun part – accessories! Choosing a scarf or a hat in analogous colors to the ones in your outfit will really help complete your look! You can even choose a colorful pattern that contains some of those colors to help bring your casual outfit up a notch!
How to Rock a Suit Vest at 70?
With the skyrocketing popularity of “old money” fashion, suit vests became one of the biggest trends of the year! While you’ve probably been seeing predominantly Gen Z’s rocking this trend, it would suit just as well a woman of any age! Here we have a stunning example of a black single-button vest paired with baggy high-waisted pants. What gives this outfit a youthful appearance is definitely the pair of sneakers peeking through the wide legs of the pants. To style it up and make it more age-appropriate, you can add a few stacked necklaces and a big structured leather bag in a contrasting color.

Business Casual Outfit for Women Over 70
I’m one of those people who believe that there is a suit for every occasion! They’re the perfect choice for when you want to create a quick and elegant outfit with minimal effort. The key hides in two elements – the fabric and the cut. For casual day-to-day wear, I suggest choosing a suit from a less restricting fabric such as cotton or linen. As for the silhouette, a loose fit with cropped pants and a baggy blazer will give you the ultimate effortlessly chic and comfortable appearance! Style with a pair of white sneakers, a matching t-shirt, and a chunky necklace, and you’re ready to go!
