TIP: Get a size or two smaller than usual or you'll end up with a "Mumsy" sweater, which can look frumpy.
The sweater's fit should be snug, and never wear it closed: The point is to cover your arms and add color to your outfit.
I wear them under almost everything for a smoother look.
Longer cardigans are great with straight-leg jeans or pants, but not with skirts.
The best cardigan I've found so far is the Classic Cardigan from Merona at Target (.99 and up).
These are a year-round fashion accessory and the best way to cover up arms that are less than toned.
Look for long and three-quarter-length sleeves that hit you at or above the hip.
Buy these staples in bulk, once you find the ones you like best.
Get them in white, black and cream to wear under the cardigans, jackets, blouses and sweaters.TIP: Wear with a silky blouse, a T-shirt or a tank with a cardigan or jacket.Look for pants made by Theory, Tahari, Joseph, Banana Republic, J.Uniqlo, Target's Mossimo Supply Co., American Apparel, Banana Republic and Gap all have great tanks in prices starting at about .Dresses make everyone feel pretty and sexy, and there are three styles that flatter women over 50 best, no matter our size or shape: Jewel colors look good on all skin tones; keep length at the knee.TIP: Keep length about 1/8-inch off the floor (depending on the shoe), and make sure the jeans fit well (with a little stretch) in butt and hips. Skip the tight skinny jeans (unflattering on most of us), and get these in dark blue, with no fading or whiskering.
