I'm a huge fan of dresses with bold prints on women over 50. For most of us, our "demure days," when we might have worn petite prints, are in the past. Bold prints are spirited, confident--just like we are. This spring, there are lots of bold print designs and colors in women's fashions. For this post, I'm showing a sample of spring 2014 dresses. I "shopped my closet" for the photo above. Bold black and white prints and "fit and flare" dress styling are on trend, but my Banana Republic dress is several years old.

Right now, I'm thinking a new spring frock might be just the thing after a long winter. I'm happy to report there are spring dresses in a wide ranges of colors, from sophisticated neutrals to energizing blasts of color. I've collected flattering dress styles for women over 50 in this spring's hottest colors. And all of the dresses are under $150!

This weekend, I went rooting through my wardrobe, looking for something that wasn’t heavy or dark. It's the end of February and I'm tired of wearing black turtlenecks and chunky sweaters. I'm ready to go lighter—lighter colors and lighter fabrics. I spotted one of my two denim shirts and thought: Perfect! The denim shirt’s long-sleeves and soft blue color (not black!) is a fun look for women over 50 and a great way to shake off the winter blues. Here’s how I’m styling my denim shirt…
