Fall Fashion for Women Over 50: Hooray for Gray and These Easy Fall Pieces

First she showed us her beautiful gray hair. Now Hillary Barnett Bitar, winner of our Hooray for Gray contest, shows us how simple it is to update your look this season.

See ya later sucka! We’re talking about summer, that is. While it’s true that summer is a glorious season for many reasons, we’re kind of partial to autumn—especially since it’s the perfect time to reboot our wardrobe and start prowling for the best seasonal fall fashion for women over 50.

To start you off with some new ideas, we visited Hillary Barnett Bitar, our Hurray for Gray contest winner, in Miami and took clothes straight from her closet. Our Aging Boldly style crew added in fun pieces to some of her fave looks —and voilà, the old reliables get refashioned for the new season. Here, studio photographer Jerry Hinkle captures her “silver storm” style and that beautiful gray hair.
