This Floral Pleated Maxi Dress is a Great Choice Over 50!

All summer long, I have been talking about maxis, so if this floral pleated maxi dress looks familiar, that’s because it is. I can’t get enough of this elegant silhouette that’s perfect for us gals over 50.

A few weeks ago, I wore this very same dress in an exotic leopard print.  But I also picked up this pretty floral version to try out because I was drawn to the unusual color and very feminine feel.

Both these dresses are from @Bananarepublic, so if you like their look, grab one quick because they are selling fast and the floral one is on sale for 50% OFF its already discounted price. See below.

The animal print pleated maxi feels a little sexier than this more traditional floral print that I’d say borders on vintage. But they both share the same elegant cut and this gorgeous pleating detail that is so flattering at any age.

This dress is simple, timeless, and easy to wear. You can wear it loose and flowy, belt at your natural waist or just under your bust. It’s light. cool and modest, but not “old lady” with a sexy side slit. It feels different from many of the maxi dresses out there.

Here’s a closer look at this stand-out color that’s not really orange and not real gold. I’d call it Marigold. I added my favorite Dean Davidson jewelry, a jeweled signature twin cuff, a braided gold bangle, and these amazing Ipanema drop earrings to finish off the look.


This is a great dress for a special event like a wedding, baby shower, special birthday party, or backyard get-together. Wear it as is or with a cropped jacket or long cardigan. It’s easy to accessorize. To shop this look now while it’s on sale, check out the links below.
