1. Poncho x pointed-toe ankle boots

For women over the age of 50, comfort should always come before style.

Your best bet is to dress in layers. What could be more modern and chic than a classy poncho worn over long sleeves, black pants, and ankle boots?

You can make your legs look longer and slimmer thanks to the poncho’s side slits.

Or else, if you are petite (or want to look taller), go for the high-low poncho that truly works wonders.

Is that just me but wearing white in winter is so refreshing and classy!

3. Playful look with ankle Boots

Ignore anyone who tells you that you can’t look young while rocking edgy clothes.

Even though achieving this look is difficult, I’ll simplify it for you.

You can’t go wrong with a black velvet long-sleeve dress as your starting point. Add a high-waisted layered mesh midi skirt if the dress is too short.

Remember to round out your edgy ensemble with conservatism with patterned leggings, and lace-up ankle boots.

To finish off the look on a tasteful end, a bowler hat is such a perfect addition here.

4. Plaid pants x Ankle boots over 50 + 60

A pair of pants with a slit up the front can be a chic complement to a pair of boots.

Overdressing for your age will make you look uncomfortable, but with a shirt, a cardigan, and some plaid pants with front slits that would look great with some leather ankle boots.

You’ll look incredibly stylish and fresh in this outfit!

Another tip: To exude the “effortlessly chic” vibes, don’t do a full tuck as it can appear stiff and formal.

Instead, slightly do a front tuck like this lady above.

It just looks way more natural!

5. Dress in ankle boots over 50 & 60 with layers

Putting on a pair of stylish ankle boots and going for a more laid-back look is a great idea.

A long-sleeved button-up shirt and sweater are also popular among the young, so layering them will give you a trendy, youthful appearance.

If you paired those with black straight pants and patent leather ankle boots, you’d have a killer ensemble.

Wearing a tassel pendant necklace will instantly update your look to trendy and casual perfection.

6. Chambray top x leather ankle boots

Wearing trendy tops is one way to express your personality and feel confident no matter your age.

Once you leave your cozy home, a chambray top will make you the center of attention.

Naturally, you’d look fabulous by layering on a black shirt underneath.

Put together, black denim and pointy ankle boots (such a sleek classy look on a budget) would make you look effortlessly chic.


For casual vibes, I’d unbutton the shirt. Trust me, you will look stylish without trying hard.

7. Leopard print boots over 50

Whoever said that leopard prints are difficult to style at your age was clearly wrong.

Because animal print shoes are so trendy right now, wearing them will unquestionably give the impression that you are young and stylish.

When you wear these leopard print boots with a plain-colored shirt, a red blazer, and denim pants, you’ll have a look that’s both sleek and stylish.

To balance out the boldness, team the white pants with leopard print just looks so poised and sleek.

They won’t even be able to tell that you are already over 60 years old!


Choose vintage-washed denim over standard black if you’d rather play down the outfit.

8. Ankle boots with blazer

Of course, the no-brainer way to style ankle boots – with a blazer.

Smart and effortlessly chic.

To look put-together, two-tone styling work wonders!

When you’re nearing retirement age, you start planning out your days.

Then, by all means, you should take up fashion as a form of recreation!

Wearing a midi pleated skirt with a ruffled top, a beige leather biker jacket, and Chelsea boots would make you the height of fashion.

But seriously, sometimes you don’t have to overthink – just wear whatever you want!

Keep it simple and you will look good anyway!


Avoid looking too out of place by wearing unexpected combinations.

For this to work, it’s important to use the appropriate color schemes.

10. Shirt Dress x Animal Prints

I have you covered if you’re a fan of animal prints.

You can’t go wrong with a long-sleeved shirt dress and some animal-print ankle boots! A scarf with an animal print could serve double duty as a belt.

You will undeniably exude an air of youth and vitality. Wearing this type of clothing would make you part of the trend as well.


Yes, let’s not go wild with the animal prints.

It would be best if your dress was a neutral color that went well with your animal print boots.

Pick a belt that is a contrasting color to your dress to make it more noticeable.

Finally, when it comes to your age and ankle boots, less is more.

Minimal, yet incredibly chic!

Colors that contrast with your outfit will help your ankle boots stand out! If your outfit is a bit dark, wear your boots in a lighter color!
