Dresses with Sleeves – Peplums CAN work over 50


jaeger peplum dress imageArticle by Ceri Wheeldon

None of us want to look like mutton dressed as lamb, so when it comes to updating our wardrobes we do need to pick and choose our ‘on trend’ pieces carefully. This is why I think a plain peplum dress can instantly update your look, without appearing as though you are trying too hard. This navy dress by Jaeger is simple and elegant and creates a flattering silhouette. It is also great for covering tums.

A statement necklace would work well with this dress – and heels are a must. Neutral accessories for a daytime look, with bold.

Jaeger peplum dress £125 available from House of Fraser.

Fab after Fifty style tip: if wearing to a wedding, choose a wide brimmed hat to balance the look.

Price: £170

 

Fab after Fifty style tip: For an evening look swap the belt for a diamante chain or narrow patent belt with crystal fastening.

Both dresses are fab for covering arms and tums
