No matter your style recipe, adding a tiny bit of trend to your wardrobe each season keeps it feeling fresh and looking modern. Head to toe trend looks tragic on most women, and it’s a costly way to update your look. Today let’s look at some wearable 2022 fall trends for women over 50.
Wearable trend – Flare jeans and Pants
These range from super wide ones that flap when you walk to narrower ones that resemble a bootcut which are universally flattering on all women. A flare should widen gently from the knee down, unlike wide-leg jeans, which are wide from the hips down. Read the item descriptions to be sure that’s what they are.
You’re also going to see plenty of flared leggings and workout pants. Most of the flares are coming in very long lengths, so I would keep an eye out for petite options unless you’re tall. They look best covering the top of your foot, shoe, or boot which lengthens the look of your leg. Petite options will also mean the flare is slightly narrower which is more flattering if you’re short. Rises are going down, but most flares have a higher rise.
Wearable trend – Bomber jackets
Move over moto jacket; this fall, it’s all about the bomber jacket. They’re showing up in cropped and oversized versions as well as the classic, which hits just below your waist. You’ll find them in cotton, faux leather and suede, silk, and satiny fabrics. Heavier fabrics may enlarge the look of your torso and shoulders, so beware of the weight. Their shape is also flattering with flares which adds width at the bottom. I’m excited to see this shape back because I have a velvet one I adore and can’t wait to bring out this fall.
MORE BOMBER JACKETS
Wearable trend – lots of leather
Leather and faux leather jackets, blazers, skirts, dresses, and pants are plentiful for fall. Faux suede gives a softer look against your complexion than shiny leather, so keep that in mind.

Now, more than before, I’m glad I bought these crop faux leather pants. Skin-tight real or faux leather doesn’t send the message I want, but these do. The black has an edgy vibe I love, and I see they now have a stunning blue and gorgeous orange!
MORE FAUX LEATHER
Wearable trend – Dopamine dressing
Bright colors are here to stay for fall. The last few years have helped many of us realize how joyful color can be. When the weather gets gloomy, the bright colors are a perfect tonic to elevate your mood. It’s being shown head to toe, but color blocking also works and still looks on-trend. If black and subdued colors are more your style, you could get a dose of happy color in a small accessory.
Wearable trend – Oversized Blazer
Blazers are always popular for fall; this year, the oversized blazer is trending. This would be a great piece to add for women who have loose, relaxed, and oversized in their style recipe. They’re structured but in a non-fussy way that would fit for a boho esthetic or one who likes a sporty, undone look with a borrowed from the boys’ vibe.
The petite women may find this trend too much or, conversely, easy to pull off with a blazer that’s a regular fit on taller women. A small heel or platform will help, as will looking for ones without too much extra fabric that will swallow you.
MORE OVERSIZED BLAZERS
Wearable trend – Statement Loafers
The lug sole loafer has been trending for several years and continues this fall. The good news here is they offer extra cushioning for your feet, so they’re comfy to wear. A heavier weighted shoe like this looks perfect with the flares that are popular and will also give balance with a maxi. Beware of soles that are so thick they’re inflexible because those will end up slipping off your heel, and that’s awkward to wear.
I just bought these Munro loafers and can’t wait for the weather to cool off so I can wear them…they’re so comfy! They come in this suede, plus tobacco suede and ruby patent in sizes 6-13, AA, B, D, and EEE.
There are plenty more trends for fall 2022, which I will cover in more depth as we get closer to fall.
Do any of these trends appeal to you?
Thanks for reading, and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
