What Is A Tunic?

Tunic tops are defined by their longline length, which is around 85-95cm, and loose fitting structure. They’re shorter than a dress and are traditionally worn over leggings and jeans with the longline length offering extra coverage to your bottom half with a range of hem styles to choose from.

“Is it me or have designers lost the plot? What has happened to reasonably-priced, elegant clothes that I – size 22 and 70 years of age – could wear? I don’t want low-cut tops or badly cut trousers that accentuate my hips. On the other hand, I don’t want to dress like a frump.”

It’s no secret that women come in all shapes and sizes, but all too often we see retailers catering to the size 10 20-somethings while ignoring those who are plus size… not to mention those who are plus size AND over the age of 50. So what items of clothing are the most flattering for plus size, older women? Which brands are the go-tos when it comes to stylish garments and a decent range of sizes? And what should you consider when dressing to suit your shape? We reveal all (not literally).

The best plus size clothing for women over 50

Having a few staples up your sleeve is a good way to make sure you have a top notch plus size wardrobe with clothes suitable for any occasion. Here are the essentials…

1. Wrap dresses

“A wrap or shift dress always looks good.”

plus size wrap dresses

Wrapover dress: H&M

If you’re looking for plus size clothing over the age of 50, wrap dresses are a definite must-buy. The V-neck shape is a particularly complimentary style for those who are heavier on top, while the wrap element will highlight your waist shape in a pleasing way. Versatile and available in a range of styles and fabrics, one of these is sure to stand you in good stead in the months to come.  

Where to shop:

Try Boden or John Lewis for gorgeous wrap dresses in stretch fabrics.

2. Tunics 

“I wear tunics all year round, but in the winter I wear them over long-sleeved tops with a boyfriend cardigan on top.”

plus size tunics

Lace sleeve tunic: Bon Prix

Tunics or longer tops are perfect for plus size, fuller figures as they are flattering on most, if not all, body shapes and hide those areas that you might not feel too comfortable with. Buy a range of tunics featuring different prints and colours to enhance your capsule wardrobe and provide a bit of variation on days when you can’t decide what to wear. This way you won’t get caught out when your favourite tunic starts to look threadbare. Comfy and fun, don a tunic with jeans during the day or pair a longer style with leggings in the evening.

Where to shop:

Take a look at White Stuff and Seasalt for an array of jersey tunics and Dorothy Perkins for longer length tops.

3. Jeans or jeggings

“I recently bought lovely jeggings in M&S in nice colours. The first pair fit so well I bought three in the end!”

Cotton rich jeggings: M&S

As for trousers, jeans are your best friend, but it’s comfy stretch fabrics all the way, we say! Find a pair with a bit of give at the waist and try a darker colour (black or dark blue) if you want to make your legs look slimmer. Jeggings are the ideal alternative to jeans if you find the latter isn’t comfortable enough. Pair with a longer length top, a blouse or a jumper depending on the occasion (and weather!). 

Where to shop:

You’ll find a range of stylish choices at M&S and Cotton Traders

4. Tailored outfits

“If you want to look stylish, go for good tailoring.”

A tailored fit – not too tight or too loose – will add a touch of magic to any outfit. While there is, unfortunately, a lack of tailored options for plus size women, brands such as JD Williams have a range of trousers and jackets that are perfect for spicing up your work wardrobe or adding a little something to a special occasion outfit. Tailored clothing will make you feel confident in clothes that fit you like a glove. And it’s more than affordable too if you know where to look. 

Where to shop:

If you hadn’t already guessed, JD Williams is a must for tailored outfits as are Marisota.

5. Curve-hugging pencil skirts

“My winter skirts have always been pencil skirts.”

Tailored pencil skirt: Simply Be

Clothes should make you feel good, not frumpy, which is why we reject the age-old rhetoric of ‘dressing to suit your age’. Choose styles that flatter your body shape and make you feel amazing, even if they feel a little daring at first.

Curve-hugging pencil skirts accentuate curves, and are a wardrobe staple that you can wear with a tucked in blouse or top for work, an event or even if you’re pottering about at home. A pencil skirt gives the illusion of a defined waist and, while it may be cinched around the middle, it doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. Most high-waisted pencil skirts come in stretchy fabrics that sit comfortably and provide a bit of breathing room at the same time
