5 Special Occasion Dresses for Women over 60

1. The New Jumpsuit

fluid blue jumpsuit - wedding fashion for women over 60 collection

Studio EY Fluid Jumpsuit, $69.99, Especially Yours

This sheer, covered jumpsuit is so classy and striking — an ideal choice for a wedding or special occasion outfit. Jumpsuits make for an eye-catching alternative to a dress, but they can be hard to wear (a nice way of saying they’re unflattering). The sheer dress silhouette over the suit itself creates a more forgiving outfit. Add in the V neckline and three-quarter sleeves, and you will be the talk of the town. An outfit like this would be a lovely choice for a beach wedding — you’ll enjoy the breeze without showing too much skin. Pair with heels and some bracelets and you’re all set.

2. The V Neck LRD

If you’ve read our fashion advice for women over 60, you know that showing off cleavage is A-OK. This sexy-but-age-appropriate number features a shorter hemline and lace detailing, plus the flattering deep V that adds length to your torso. If you like the dress, but still think it’s too much skin, pair with a black shawl — you’ll be ready to dance the night away.
