Great style is truly timeless, and with years of experimentation behind them, I’ve found it’s often (more times than not!) the over-50s that do it best. Having found the fabrics, cuts, colours and pieces that make them feel their best—and with the extra confidence that comes with age—their fashion choices are always worth tuning into. 

Still brimming with new-year energy, I’m turning my attention to the women over 50 who are nailing fashion in 2024 to inform my looks for the rest of the year. Luckily, the celebrity crowd is brimming with them. From Kelly Rutherford‘s iconic front row style, to Michelle Obama‘s inimitable outfits, these ensembles are elegant, timeless and will earn you all the compliments if you decide to join me in re-creating them.
