Who is your 50-plus style icon?

The You Gov poll, conducted by online retailer JD Williams, indicated that 49% of women over 50 most admired The Queen for sophisticated, classic looks. She was closely followed by Dame Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep, while Great British Bake Off judge Mary Berry came 4th in the poll. Madonna however, worshipped for her controversial style in the Eighties, was bottom of the poll with only 3%.

The YouGov report also revealed half of 50-plus women say they dress for themselves rather than to impress others with favourite items of clothing including jeans, trousers and dresses.

Ed Watson, Spokesperson for JD Williams comments, “Our customers admire and relate to the real 50-plus woman, the Queen and Dame Helen Mirren are perfect examples of how to age gracefully and avoid the dreaded ‘mutton dressed as lamb’ look. It’s great that women are starting to look to their elders for style inspiration, rather than feeling like their only option is to try to emulate a woman in her 20s.”
