No matter what stage of life you’re in, I’m a big believer that you can wear whatever you want, whenever you want. There shouldn’t be “rules” or “dos” and “don’ts” just because you’re older or younger. Societal norms are shedding left, right and centre, and never before has it been cooler to age while staying true to yourself.

A real tastemaker will be guided by what feels right, but we all have wobbles and moments of uncertainty. So whether you’re a 20-something trying to find that ultimate interview outfit or a 50-something rediscovering a love for colour and searching for quality inspiration, our gallery of over-50 celebrities, industry figures and influencers will help. Read on for 35 trailblazing women we love to take fashion tips from on the regular.
