The blogosphere has exploded with 40+ fashion bloggers. Frustrated with dressing after 40, these fashionistas have taken to the internet to try to inspire their peers. Here are some photos they sent in that show off their style.
40+ Fashionistas Love the High-Low Maxi Trend
Rebecca has embraced the high low trend this summer and looks fab in her ombré striped maxi dress.
She calls her everday style classic and easy-going with touches of corporate chic. You see, by day Rebecca is a certified public accountant, but she blogs in her spare time at Red Tag Chic Los Angeles. Already in her late 40s, Rebecca says she’s not interested in competing with fashion-forward 20 to 30-something bloggers. She just wants to help 40-somethings.
Pretty in Peplum
Peplum tops, like maxi dresses, were hot this spring. They’re are a great way to dress up an outfit.
Fashion blogger Carmen has fond memories of her mom’s gorgeous red peplum dress with black roses from the 60s and longs to have a wardrobe full of peplum suit jackets with matching pencil skirts just like her mom had. While in New York City recently, Carmen wore a peplum top with capri pants and strappy black sandals.
Carmen ( who is 61 !) loves peplum tops because they are feminine, great for all body types from slim to fuller figures and really create the hourglass that so many of us wish we had. They also make her feel very feminine.
You can see more of Carmen’s feminine and pretty style at her blog, Fashionable Over 50.
The Go-To Outfit
Do you have a go-to outfit, or maybe you have a few staple wardrobe items that make up your go-to outfits?
Greetje sent us this photo of her go-to outfit that is typically flats, jeans a comfortable top and scarf.
Greetje, a part-time blogger, says she loves to experiment with dressing and to provide inspiration to women over 40 who may be afraid of fashion. That’s why she named her blog No Fear of Fashion.
