I'm a 54-Year-Old Fashion Influencer—This Is the Capsule Wardrobe I Swear By

There’s a reason we often turn to women over 50 for grade-A style inspiration. Yes, age is literally just a number (and you should wear whatever you love regardless of the year you were born), but it’s this set that tends to just get it. After all, many fashion people in this age bracket have spent the time to truly develop a well-rounded wardrobe through style trial and error. So naturally, when it comes to building the ideal capsule wardrobe, we thought turning to a chic 50-something woman would be of interest.

Enter 54-year-old fashion influencer and model Renata Jazdzyk, the mastermind behind the engaging Instagram account @venswifestyle. We tapped the style setter to provide a list of the 23 pieces she couldn’t live without—ones she can easily mix and match to create a range of solid outfits.

Without further ado, check out Jazdzyk’s ultimate capsule wardrobe, complete with nine outfit ideas (although more could be created), and shopping inspiration, if you're shopping at the moment.

Oversize Blazer + White T-Shirt + Jeans + Belt + Shoulder Bag + Flats

While straight-leg jeans and a white tee make a great outfit on their own, the addition of a blazer and smart flats keeps the overall vibe quite sophisticated.

Chunky Sweater + Scarf + Jeans + Ankle Boots

An interesting chunky knit with jeans is quite chic.

Leather Trench + Cashmere Turtleneck + Pleated Skirt + Flats

This polished ensemble could actually work for a range of occasions if you need an easy-yet-elegant fit.

White T-Shirt + Printed Top + Leather Skirt + Bucket Bag + Sandals

Layer a printed top over a casual white T-shirt for a high-end look.

Coat + White Shirt + Leather Skirt + Earrings + Pumps + Shoulder Bag

An architectural white shirt brings dimension to a forward ensemble with a leather skirt (or the pleated option below), a coat if it's chilly, and pumps.

Chunky Sweater + Trousers + Ankle Boots

You can’t beat a chunky knit-and-trouser combo for a simple and effective look. Just toss on a leather trench if you need to layer up.

Cashmere Turtleneck + Silk Dress + Oversize Blazer + Belt + Flats

A silk dress works great with a turtleneck underneath and a blazer on top. The addition of a belt over the blazer will also make the look appear quite elegant.

Printed Top + Jeans + Earrings + Bucket Bag + Sandals

Make a statement in a printed top mixed with jeans and playful accessories.

Slip Dress + Trousers + Scarf + Pumps

A dress over pants is an incredibly modern look. The addition of a scarf could work well as an impromptu shawl.

What to Wear to Enhance Your Eye Color

See which hues are meant for you.

What to Wear to Enhance Your Eye Color

We’re well aware that hair color, skin tone, and makeup technique play a role in the intensity of your eye color. While a touch of bold lipstick or a swipe of a striking eyeliner are surefire ways to play up your eye color, today we’re proving instead that the extra sparkle in your eye has everything to do with the colors of clothing you wear. Whether you have a set of baby blue, sparkly green, sharp hazel, or deep brown blinkers, here are the basic color guidelines to making your eyes look the boldest and brightest they’ve ever been.

Follow these simple and straightforward color suggestions, and watch as compliments start streaming your way. Once you’ve optimized which colors you wear for your eye color, people won’t stop noticing the beautiful tones of your irises. Ahead we’re breaking down the colors that make your eyes pop. Find out exactly which shades you should be wearing during the day and at night.

Your best colors:

Classic neutrals
All shades of pink
Deep blue
Lighter green

If you have baby blue or deep ocean-tinted eyes, the best colors for you include classic neutrals like beige and taupe, which complement your eyes the same way blonde hair makes blue eyes pop. While all shades of pink highlight your eyes well, bold fuchsia tones work to intensify their cool blue shade the most. As is to be expected, deep blue hues match the tone of your blue eyes, making them more pronounced, while lighter greens give your eyes a subtle complementary boost.

Your best colors:

Deep green
Pale yellow

For those of you with rich emerald eyes, you’ll want to opt mostly for those colors on the opposite end of the color wheel. Purple always goes well with green eyes, and the deeper the purple, the more intense your eyes will appear. If you want to match your eye color, go for deep greens like emerald and forest green over other shades. Try out a complementary color scheme for your green eyes. Coral is a perfect summery color, especially on flirty sundresses, and is a no-brainer to making your eyes pop. Lastly, pale yellows highlight your green eyes just as well.

Your best colors:

Dark neutrals

You’ve got the chameleon of eye shades: hazel. More factors come into play with making hazel eyes stand out than other eye colors (like which lighting you’re in) because your irises are more multifaceted than most. The best colors for your hazel eyes include dark neutrals like brown and gray, which will pick up the darker tones in your eyes. For a bolder combination, orange and lavender look so good with hazel, making the greener shades in them pop. Burgundy is also a fail-safe color choice.

Your best colors:

Khaki green
Soft pink
Rich blue

Brown eyes are sometimes the trickiest to make pop because they’re already considered a neutral tone. But for those of you who are blessed with brown eyes, the best colors for you include khaki green, so try out an army or bomber jacket. Luckily for you, rich blues are guaranteed to make your eyes pop, so stock up on that dark-wash denim! Soft pinks are also ideal for your brown eyes. Lastly, gold will complement your eyes so well. Try a necklace or earrings if gold clothing is too bold for you.
