Transparencies and slits: how to wear them at 50

style over fifty not only twenty

Transparencies and slits are always associated with young, beautiful and toned bodies, but we can wear this kind of dress even if overforty or overfifty, because none of us want to give up our femininity and the chance to be admired and desired.

Ageless charm

Two great actresses who are 70 years old and are not only beautiful and desirable, but also extremely elegant, teach this to us. Susan Sarandon, who at the Cannes festival stole the scene from younger actresses, with her low  neckline and thigh high slit, and Helen Mirren, who, with her elegance wearing transparent outfit, is still a desirable woman.

It is obvious that we limit ourselves, often because of poor self-esteem or fear of others’ judgment.

Let’s dress up how we like it and how it makes us feel good, without allowing others to dictate the rules for us. A self-confident woman is often a happy woman.

When wearing dresses with transparencies

The dress with transparencies cannot be a garment to wear everyday, but it is for special occasions: a dinner out, an event, a cocktail, a theater evening.

The one I propose is made with a transparent part in the neckline and a side slit.

The midi length of the dress makes the slit longer than what  it is in reality and the fabric weave on the neckline makes it more eye-catching.

The line of the dress allows to be worn by slim, shapely and curvy women.

I like to match it with platform, for the vaguely oriental flower, but even high-heeled sandals are perfect. The shoulder bag, not  too big, for an evening, if you want to make the outfit more elegant, wear a clutch bag.

Marni earrings I chose are consistent with Eastern theme I wanted to give to the outfit.

Choose your theme and proceed with accessories.
