I love sundresses! I can’t say it loud enough, and I can’t own enough of them. As I get older, I am noticing my taste in sundresses change.
The ones that I now navigate towards are longer, offer a little more coverage, and I tend to also prefer natural fabrics over synthetics. Cotton and linen sundresses are comfortable and breathe easily, making them great for hot summer days and long summer nights.
Sundresses for women over 60 can be solid, printed, and in a variety of styles and fabrics. Do you feel the need to hide away in a shapeless dress because of the little extra around your middle? You’re not alone. It’s a common mistake older women make.
But did you know that A-line, empire waists, fit-and-flare, and belted sundresses tend to flatter an aging woman’s body best?
Let’s take a look at some sundresses that don’t look like shapeless bags and that will make you look and feel fabulous. I have assembled suggested accessories to complete the look of each sundress.
Here is our list of the best sundresses for women over 60:
This pretty fit-and-flare denim shirt dress from Anne Klein can be found at Macy’s. The dress has a collar, button-down front, and a waist tie belt to cinch the waist which creates a flattering silhouette.
This stylish and versatile dress can be dressed up or down, making it a great addition to any wardrobe. Pair it with tan or brown accessories for a modern and chic look.
Red dresses and accessories are always a statement of a vibrant personality. This faux-wrap dot dress found at Macy’s is a great addition to your wardrobe if red is on your color palette.
Pair it with red accessories for a bold and fun look or solid black to achieve a more sophisticated style.
Wrap dresses are flattering for practically every body type. Faux wraps are an easy way to get the look. This A-line polka dot midi dress has subtle puff sleeves for a vintage-inspired look.

This A-line white cotton midi-dress features a v-neck bodice, short sleeves, an adjustable drawstring waistband, and side seam pockets. Perfect to match with black accessories.

Do you like animal prints? This zebra print sunny-day dress is designed with a smocked bodice and cut from a breezy blend of cotton and sustainable Tencel lyocell.
I know the models in these photos don’t represent our age group and body types, even if the dresses are designed with older women in mind.
I do my best to search for photos that feature older models, but it’s not always possible. The fashion industry has many marketing changes to implement where ageism is concerned.
Regardless, these are wonderful sundresses in varied price ranges. Surely, there’s one on this list that will fit your budget and your body perfectly.
