Summer Fashion for Retirement Communities in Orange County CA

Don’t be afraid to experiment with your style choices this season!


As seasons change, the weather changes. As the weather changes, our wardrobes should follow suit! And there’s no rule that says seniors need to stay stuck in the past when it comes to their clothing–fashion comes in cycles, so seniors actually have a leg up on the young whippersnappers when it comes to predicting and wearing trends. There’s no time like the present for our residents at Park View Estates Memory Care and Transitional Assisted Living to learn what types of fashion and style choices are trending right now. See if any of these ideas speak to you and try some out this season!

Floral Prints and Patterns

With the state of California being full of blooming flowers this time of year, it makes sense that we would want to represent that in our clothing choices! Floral prints and patterns are definitely popular right now and can be implemented in a variety of ways. If your loved one prefers more expressive outfits, consider going for a larger floral print like sunflowers. If they are more on the reserved side, perhaps a blouse with a smaller, dainty design with leaves or blossoms would be more fitting. Depending on the occasion, you can find florals on almost any clothing item! While you likely won’t have trouble finding floral items of clothing in all colors and shades, for the warmer weather, we love a pop of pastel or earth tones!

Soft Pastels and Natural Colors

Now that you know what type of patterns and prints to look for this season, let’s talk about what colors to consider while you’re on your next shopping trip. While it might seem likely that summer colors mean bright and loud hues, that actually is not the case. Soft pastels, natural, and earthy colors are very much in vogue right now. Some examples your loved one might like to try include lavender, sage, and taupe. Luckily, incorporating this type of color palette usually means it is much easier to make matching outfits! There’s no longer a need to worry about clashing colors or patterns!

Maxi Length

You now know what prints and patterns are in style. You also know what colors and shades to wear. However, what you might not know is the type of clothing to be trying out this season. The answer: maxi-length skirts and dresses! The style of maxi-length has come and gone in its popularity over the last several years, but it’s definitely “in” right now. This style of skirts and dresses is seen as feminine and flattering, especially for women over 50. Not only that, but they’re extremely comfortable! The warmer weather months are a time to be spent enjoying the outdoors and feeling confident in what you’re wearing– not for feeling suffocated by your outfit. Make sure to encourage your loved one to try out maxi-length dresses and skirts for a surefire way to be both comfortable and fashionable!

Summer is a time of being outdoors and making memories. What makes this time of year even more enjoyable, though, is looking and feeling your best while you’re dressed to impress! Here at Park View Estates, we know the joy and confidence that comes from wearing an outfit you truly love. We also know that keeping up with the latest fashion trends can be exhausting and even a little intimidating! There are a variety of fashion trends to choose from, so don’t be afraid to try them out! We hope these wardrobe suggestions gave you some ideas for making the most of your outfit choices this season for you and your loved one.
