You can tell it’s spring because of all the street chic photos of women in pretty dresses that have started to pop up. This week I’m sharing pictures from three 40+ bloggers who look modern and ladylike in their feminine frocks.
The Black and White Trend in dresses that started last summer continues this spring, and one of the ways to get the look is with polka dots.
Ann was drawn to this easygoing knit dress because of the 3/4 length sleeves, and being able to style the dress in so many ways.
It originally came with a thin black belt, but since Ann wanted the outfit to pop, she replaced the black belt with a red belt and added red shoes and a purse. (Replacing a self belt is a great trick to jazz up an outfit – see what I mean)
Ann is an artist by trade and blogs as a hobby. Be sure to visit her at Blue Hue Wonderland to see her personal twist on the latest styles.
Bold Graphic Prints
If you shy away from patterned dresses because you think they are too loud or too busy, it’s time to take another look at what’s out there. Elsie, who writes about her 2 passions: food and fashion at her blog The Cooking Wardrobe, has dished up a fantastic outfit.
This graphic print dress was the perfect choice for a Sunday church outing Elise went to. It’s fresh, fun and modern.
Elise could have easily worn a black cardigan with it, but instead she chose this bold blue one which I think was perfect choice because it brings energy and youthfulness to her look.

Stylish in Stripes
It takes confidence to wear a big, bold horizontally striped skirt, but Mary pulled it off. She fell in love with this black and white striped skirt the moment she set her eyes on it and loves the ways it flatters her curves. With a black and white skirt like this, anything goes.
Mary has already started experimenting with pairing it with other styles of tops in many vibrant colors. To see more photos of Mary’s style, check out her daily outfit blog Curlybyrdie Chirps.
