Shorts over 50 & Fancy Friday linkup

shorts over 50, wearing it with a black blazer

I wear shorts while I’m over 50, and do you? I have even worn them more often since I am over 50 years old then ever before. On the one hand, that is of course very nice, because apparently I am comfortable enough to wear them. And not only just around the house! On the other hand, I regret that I never dared to wear them when I had nicer legs. Because although I exercise four times a week, I think my legs and arms don’t look strong enough, and I also have a terribly dry skin that doesn’t make it more appealing. But nonetheless, I now like to wear shorts. Because I just feel good in it.

Shopping for shorts when you’re over 50

When I went to buy these shorts I actually had in mind that I wanted a dark blue one. And then I wanted to wear a blue white striped tee on it. Such a casual relaxed Breton look, it always works well in the summer. These shorts were also available in dark blue but I could not find a nice striped tee. That’s why I brought the black one with me because I hadn’t worn this tee yet and it seemed perfect for black shorts. And what did I find when I got home in the closet? Right, a blue white striped t shirt! That is really a sign that you have too much isn’t it? Or is it a sign that I am over 50??

How to wear shorts over 50

So I bought the black ones an wore it with this lovely black tee with golden studs on it! My fabulous( at least I think so) black sandals from Tamaris and golden jewelry and accessories. With the blazer, whether it is a black one or a colored one, it makes the look a bit more sophisticated. It can also be worn more casual with espadrilles and a colored tee. You can wear any style you want with shorts.

So now I am curious. Are you over 50 and do you wear shorts? Let me know and if you do, how do you style your shorts!short over 50, wearing black shortsblack shorts over 50 and a black blazerblack tee with golden studs on black shorts.Black shorts suit when you are over 50How to wear shorts when over 50.Golden chain belt on black shorts over 50 fashionWhat to wear with black shorts when you're over 50

    I am over 50 (72, to be exact) and I’m beginning to enjoy wearing shorts again. I find I’m most comfortable in Bermuda length. Many hot days, I wear linen blend ankle-length slacks instead. Not a fan of sunburn, so coverage is welcome.

    A stunning outfit Nancy, you could be on the red carpet at Cannes! Very glamorous. I occasionally wear knee length white or pink shorts, the pink ones are very casual for going to the local shops or at home, and the white ones I wear on holiday with summer tops.

    My feeling is, if you’ve got legs, wear the shorts! Who cares how old or young you are! And you have fantastic legs, my friend. I love this edgy outfit! The all black and the sassy chain belt. You rock!

    It’s going to be 44 C here with the humidex today so you bet I still wear shorts. My legs are full of dimples and varicose veins but I still wear them.

    I love the gold belt you’ve paired with your shorts.

    Nothing wrong with your legs in my opinion, Nancy. If mine looked half as good, I’d be tempted to wear shorts. I did wear a lot of shorts in my 30s, but even then my legs were not a par on yours! xxx

    You look great in shorts Nancy! I am glad you are wearing them because you are rocking this look. I love to wear shorts when I find one that fits properly. Otherwise, I don’t really. Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!

    Nancy, I think this look is one of my all-time favourites of yours! You look stunning – a real rock chick! And your legs look fabulous. I am 43 and I won’t like to wear shorts because I’m not a fan of my legs either lol. However, when it’s so hot (like it is right now in Portugal), I have to wear them so I’ve got a pair on right now. Given the choice, I prefer slightly longer shorts because of my thighs! Silly really, because I know they’re not THAT bad lol!
    Have a wonderful weekend, gorgeous!

    I wear Bermuda length denim shorts for work all of the time but never really wear them out in public. I think I need to work on dressing up the denim Bermudas and give them a whirl. I usually go with skorts, which are the same length as (or shorter than) the Bermudas, so I’m not sure why I don’t just wear shorts. I love your style! That black tee is beautiful and just perfect with the shorts. The chain belt is a beautiful look and I love the sandals! Thanks so much for doing the link-up and I’ll get joined up with this one for sure!

    I think we can all wear shorts, we just need to find a cut that we’re comfortable with.
    I like high waist vintage style shorts….and those I made myself from old jeans.

    Thank you for the link up Nancy. You really do have fabulous legs, plus, I love that outfit – the shorts and blazer look so chic in a rock chick kind of way which I love. I’m not a big fan of my legs in shorts. I’m trying to get back into exercise as it does make all of the difference.
