Can I Wear a Tiered Skirt Over 50? And Link Up

 Gail Hanlon from Is This Mutton in khaki tiered skirt and fuchsia pink top and boots

Tiered skirts all the rage for spring and summer, a progression from the ruffles of last year.  I am not big on either ruffles or tiers.  I usually go for clean, straight or asymmetric silhouettes.  Tiers remind me of wedding cakes. I wasn't looking for a tiered skirt but in fact a khaki skirt when I stumbled across this beaut, which combines both.

Dark khaki is great as a neutral with bright pink, red and orange.  I'm wearing it with a fuchsia pink top from Kettlewell, metallic pink boots and a three-string necklace dating from the 60s, from Etsy. I love Etsy and often buy jewellery  and secondhand clothes there.  It's lovely to buy directly from women who make it or have a pre-loved business.

The skirt, from Oasis at Asos is quite long - initially I thought too long, but it's balanced out by the heeled boots. It has an elasticated waist which is fabulous in these Covid times. The tiering is there but the colour and fabric makes subtle, so there's no wedding cake effect going on. The skirt is in the sale at £22. 

The bright pink is a great colour for not looking invisible over a certain age! 

A Covid forgiving waistline and tiers make this khaki skirt a winner for all ages and fuchsia pink means anyone wearing it over 50 will be far from invisible

Has the tiered skirt trend grabbed your attention or is another spring trend appealing to you? Perhapss you prefer to just do your own thing?  Do share in the comments.

Suzy, The Grey Brunette, speaks for a lot of us when she says she's fed up with being told what to wear, and in particular that skinny jeans are "out": 


Kellyann at This Blonde's Shopping Bag asked the question "Can blondes wearing yellow?" and judging by how gorgeous she looks in her yellow dress, the answer is a resounding "yes."

  1. Stunning Gail, and you’re right, I hardly noticed the frilled tiers. I have a far too long khaki skirt too and you’ve inspired me to put some
    pink to it. Thank you!
    Hugs, Mary x.
