This was a big year for personal style. Instagram gave many of us a platform to not only express our own taste, but it also served as an opportunity to discover other individuals. Reflecting back on my favorite influencer looks from the year, I've realized that several of them have one thing in common: They're all on women who happen to be over 50. Call it a coincidence if you please, but I can't help but wonder if this crowd is on to something significant.
It goes without saying that fashion transcends age, and you can be stylish no matter how many years you've been on this earth. It seems to me, though, that the "older" crowd is unique in that they tend to celebrate individualism and feel confident in what they choose to wear. To illustrate my point, I rounded up the most interesting outfits on women over 50 from the year and threw in some shopping picks to help you re-create a similar bold mood in your own wardrobe for the New Year.
