7 Spring tops with sleeves to look fabulous over 50

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

50 plus fashion tops with sleeves

It’s that time of year when it’s time to put away the sweaters , and there  are some fabulous spring tops – with sleeves – available on the High Street tight now.  Sleeves certainly don’t need to be frumpy! Ruffles, pleats and cold shoulders are the go to style features this spring. I have chosen 7 of my favourites to share. They would all look great with white jeans – and strappy sandals in the evening or flats in the daytime for an instant spring to summer wardrobe.

I hope you like my selection!


  1. This red fluted sleeve top is elegant but still on trend with its bell sleeves. Also available in other colours on the website I have a very similar one in black – I get a lot of wear out of it, it literally skims the body and creates a very flattering silhouette. Cost £55 from House of Fraser

  1. This pink frill sleeved top is also extremely flattering – and a bargain at £29 – especially as it includes the necklace! From House of Fraser
