We have been campaigning for retailers to listen to us, and offer more clothes that appeal to women over 50 . We want to be stylish and not frumpy. We want clothes cut to fit and flatter our midlife figures. We want to dress with confidence.
Today the spots on light Marks and Spencer’s dresses with sleeves in their autumn range.
Have they got it right?
Although I have to say I am personally disappointed to see none of the models are in our age group!
Would love your comments in the box below!
This panelled , textured dress draws the eye to the waist with both the mid length sleeves and the black panel around the middle. The black side panels also create the illusion of a slimmer silhouette.
This v neck peplum dress with sleeves would add a colourful splash to your autumn wardrobe. Flattering mid – length sleeves, and the v-neck helps to elongate the neck. £45
The ‘secret support’ dress in the dress claims to help you drop a dress size . Sophisticated cut – timeless. £59
A simple floral lace dress with sleeves. Understated and easy to accessorise.£69
A chic panelled bodycon dress with an attractive small v at the neck. Above the elbow sleeves – great for covering bingo wings! £45
