If you’re a woman over 50, or a woman in her 60s like me, I don’t have to tell you anything about how our shape changes as we age. Things happen naturally over time that we don’t like, but they’re a part of the aging process and we all experience them.
Aging naturally is a wonderful thing, and I wouldn’t choose any form of surgery, implants, sculpting, or whatever else is out there to modify the look of our face and the shape of our body. I am who I am, belly fat, bun-bulge and all.
I look in the mirror every morning and affirm that I am beautiful, just as I am, and don’t let the picky, critical, whiny girl take over and complain about how I don’t look like I used to, and the scale just won’t cooperate no matter what I do. Sigh.
For me, it’s a commitment to a healthy lifestyle and making wise choices (most of the time!), to maintain my 60’ish figure the best that I can.
Of course, these natural figure adjustments sometimes require an adjustment to the wardrobe as well. Tucked-in tops have always been my go-to as a casually styled girl, but in the last couple of years I’ve started to add longer figure flattering tops to the wardrobe. It just makes sense to cover up areas that are no longer so nice to look at.
But, I don’t want to dress like an old lady, either, so I’m pretty particular about these tunic style tops, as well as how I layer my outfits for a youthful and stylish result.
By the way, if you like the bright coral chirred tunic style top with dolman sleeves I’m wearing in the image at the top, it came from Amazon.
So, here are some of the best figure flattering tops in longer, tunic styles for women that I found. Some are in neutral colors that are always flattering, others are in brighter fabrics and prints. See what speaks to you and your personal style!
