We’re almost two thirds of the way through winter in Australia, and I for one, am longing for some warmer, dryer weather. Especially because I’ve just discovered the versatility of this navy swing dress from Vivid International – a fabulous dress for women over 50.
Why this dress is great for women over 50
It’s a loose dress, a swing dress without the vintage connotations. It swings nicely, falls beautifully, and hides my lumps and bumps in a most divine way!
Basically it’s a jersey swing dress, made of a fine weave. A versatile option for cooler spring days when you’re not quite ready to go bare legged because this dress looks great with capri pants and boots, or you could wear it with sneakers and sandals in warmer weather too.
What to wear with a Swing Dress on cooler days
For the unpredictable days of Spring coming up, I’ve teamed it with a long scarf and capri pants in the first photo, and then a maroon cardigan which has a lovely waterfall effect in the second photo, also from Vivid International.
With it I’m wearing my everso comfy but always stylish, go-to ankle boots, SALLi from FRANKiE4 – boots which are fabulous for women over 50.
Get the Look
If you don’t have a Vivid International stockist near you, I’ve sourced similar styles online for you to replicate the look.
Easy wear Tunic Dress
The jersey swing dress (in the photo below) with long sleeves comes in a rainbow variety of different colours.
You could team it with ponte pants and look a million dollars.
You could team it with capri pants or leggings with boots or sneakers, or simply wear it with pantyhose, and small heels to give you a little more height.

White Capri Pants
The capri pants I’ve sourced for you below come in a variety of colours.
I love the fact that they have tummy control and a wide pull on waist band. For women over the age of 50 I think this is a neat addition!

In the images I’m wearing FRANKiE4 SALLi leather ankle boots. I love the functional footbed which makes these boots so comfortable to wear. My feet complain loudly a lot of the time, but not in these boots. Podiatrist & Physiotherapist designed, they boast features that support your entire foot: rear foot, mid foot and forefoot are all supported

Love the swing dress! For those of us who lack hight, they look awesome just above the knee and paired with some cute wedges or heeled mules. I am only 5’1″, but if I wear that combo, I feel MUCH taller. I also think swing dresses, like you say, hide all the lumps and bumps. 🙂
Great tips! Thanks Camille 🙂

I’ve been looking for a longer length ‘dress’ to go over slim fit pants. Maybe this is the answer. Thanks Jo.
Just on or just below the knee elongates us Jill with this look – and it can offer a whole lot of confidence when wearing slim pants.
