Women's Guide to Spring Clothes | Draper's and Damon's

When we talk to our customers about the joys of life after 50, we hear the same sentiment over and over again: "I now know who I am and I love myself." Hooray! We adore that kind of self-confidence. But as we're sure you know all too well, just because you know what you like doesn't mean you know how to put it all together. Finding and styling beautiful outfits you love to live in can be tricky at best. But that's where Draper's & Damon's comes in. We've been styling women of every age for almost 100 years. And if there's one thing we know about fashion over 50 is that it's entirely possible to be yourself, look great, and feel incredibly comfortable. So, what are the best-dressed women over 50 wearing? This helpful style guide will show you.

Comfort Fabrics


Nothing ruins a great outfit faster than a fabric that wears too tight or too restrictive--no matter what size you are. If you're not comfortable, there's no reason why you should have it on. But our team of designers are the best at developing stretch fabrics that look deluxe and feel amazing. Cotton, lace, denim, french terry, crepe, sweater knits--you can find them all at Draper's & Damon's with stretch added in to ensure endless ahh.

Slimming Silhouettes


Thanks to pants and capris with built-in tummy-control panels and special stretch technology, it's easier than ever to get the look of a slimmer, trimmer silhouette. Best of all, our slimming styles offer exceptional comfort. So you'll never feel squeezed, just wonderful ease. Also, we can't emphasize enough how flattering the long-over-lean trend is. And it's as easing as layering a flowing lace or mesh jacket over a pair of leggings. Voila... you're gorgeous!

Fun Details


Just a dose of stylish drama can make all the difference. Fun details like shimmer accents, flared cuffs, decorative buttons and beading, and asymmetrical hems elevate your style in an instant.

Beautiful Flow


Are you going with the flow? You should be. Graceful flutter and alluring cascade are the hallmarks of feminine style. We've made the trend our own by adding a modern twist. Think jackets and cardigans done up in whisper-soft fabrics and with the fun of bright colors and bold prints.

Essential Styles for Women Over 50


The Right Style: You don't need a closet overflowing with clothes to create great outfits. Mastering the art of great style comes down to a few key pieces: Longer length cardigans and jackets in flowing fabrics, made-to-flatter pants that stretch with ease, versatile athleisure sets for busy days, slimming denim jeans, cotton-rich tees, and woven shirts with touches of tailoring.
