Updating Your Casual Wardrobe ~ 40+ Style Bloggers Show Us How

One of the biggest things on readers’ minds seems to be, “What do I wear to look casual but classy over 40?

A few days ago I posted a great solution – The Boyfriend Jacket. Other 40+ bloggers seem to agree. Here’s a street chic look at the boyfriend jacket and how these bloggers wear it to look Fabulous After 40!

Make It Funky

Inspired by menswear trends, jacket designer Nora wears her houndstooth boyfriend jacket with a pair of chic cropped trousers and a fun graphic print t-shirt.

To make it dressier, Nora has added heels and a soft, silky, art- inspired t-shirt from Zara. It’s interesting how something as simple as the right t-shirt can really add a lot of class to an outfit. Steer clear of concert tees or worn, messy tees that make you look sloppy.

The boyfriend jacket Nora is wearing is the “Beverly” and is part of Nora’s fabulous jacket collection which can be seen in its entirety at Jacket Society. Continue Reading

Romantic Flowy Skirts

Jeannette loves maxi skirts and this emerald green one is a special favorite. Often you see this kind of skirt worn with pretty blouse or feminine top, but Jeannette makes it modern and fresh by pairing it with a soft chambray shirt.

Her bold floral oversized clutch, studded statement belt and leopard print shoes add an edgy touch to offset the romantic side of the outfit. Quite and interesting mix of masculine/feminine, soft and wild.

Jeannette is a new 40+ fashion blogger who blogs about her fashion inspirations, personal growth, and healthy lifestyle at Ms. Jeannie and her Closet.  Be sure to stop by and visit Jeannette to see more of her eclectic style.

Boho Chic Flowy Tops

Bohemian chic is popular with gals who love a relaxed, artistic approach to dressing.

Style Blogger Cherie gets the look just right with a billowy, gauze tunic worn with a pair of cuffed jeans. Sexy, red, strappy heels spice up the look while a floral bag counters with a nostalgic, romantic feel. It’s a nice balance between modern and vintage.

Cherie blogs at Style Nudge where she enjoys putting outfits together to create the unexpected.

Art-Inspired Flowy Dresses

If you want to look like a masterpiece, check out this season’s art-inspired trend which includes abstract patterns, unusual silhouettes and flowy clothing.  That’s what Anne did.

Anne is a seamstress who wanted to create the perfect dress with no detail spared. When she came across this Jackson Pollack-like fabric, she was inspired to add ad black piping and pleats to her design to allow for a fuller look. After several re-works, Anne finished her dress and is thrilled with the results.

You can see more of Anne’s creations at Apple Annie Fabrics.

Thanks Ladies, You all look Age-Amazing! Cheers, Deborah
