These days you don’t have to look far to find fashion inspiration. Many 40+ women are turning to the blogosphere to share their fashion sense and inspirational style.
In this week’s What I Wore, we are featuring 3 fashion bloggers over 40, each with a distinct and unique street style. Take a look.
The Power of Three
Do you have a standard approach to fashion and dressing? Or maybe you have a general rule of thumb that works for you?
Beverly who shares her fashion finds and personal style at Beverly Like Hills swears by her “power of three” approach to dressing. The approach combines two classic pieces, mixed with one on-trend piece so that you always look put together, without spending a bundle.
Beverly prefers to shop mainly at stores at her local mall, making the outfits she shares accessible to her audience. Beverly’s outfit combines two of my favorite current trends, prints and shades of citrus. The colorful top is from Zara, printed pants by Gap, and booties by Steve Madden, which surprisingly are 4 years old.
Bold Florals and Lemon Yellow Shorts
Color! I love when I hear a woman say her favorite colors are vibrant shades rather than dull grays and boring blacks.
New York City blogger Dixie wears her favorite summer colors for a rooftop party in Brooklyn. Dixie sure knows how to stand out in a crowd that was sure to be fashionable. Vibrant colors will definitely put the focus on you.
Dixie loves the thrill and excitement of putting pieces together to create her own look. Dixie doesn’t have a signature style and would much rather wear what works for her, and makes her happy. So anything goes! It can be over-sized shirts and tees, Converse sneakers or Louboutins.
Dixie defines style as a unique interpretation of your authentic self. You can see more of Dixie’s fabulous style on her blog Dixie Beauty.
A simple black dress is one of the best wardrobe investments you can make.
Over 40 fashionista Josephine likes the look of her long black dress because it’s simple and can be worn casually during the day (as shown in the picture) with a traditional Panama hat and sandals or dressed up for the evening with heels and jewelry.
This look is a favorite of Josephine’s and is perfect for both a lunch party on a hot summer’s day or with different accessories for a casual dinner. Josephine has even gone super casual by pairing this dress with flip-flops for a trip to the beach.
Josephine’s style is classic with a modern twist and can be seen in action on her blog Chic at Any Age. She prefers simplicity and builds her wardrobe around basic neutrals usually in dark colors for trousers (to complement her pear-shaped figure) with tops in vibrant colors and patterns.
Some of her favorite accessories include scarves, hats and jewelry as these are simple and stylish ways to create a variety of looks. She always invests in good quality basics and adds seasonal trends in less expensive items.
