We’re only one day away from announcing the Grand Prize winner of our Spring 2013 fashion trends contest! You, our readers, have proven to be quite a talented group of designers when it comes to styling hip, modern women over 40.
From dresses for women over 40 to casual fashion and everything inbetween, your creations have captured the season’s best fashion for women over 40. Today we reveal:
Winner #2 Floral Prints by Annette “Lady of Style”
We knew the minute we saw this outfit it would be a big hit with our Fabulous After 40 community.
This outfit is fresh, feminine and captures this year’s popular floral trend.
Annette, who also captured 3 other prizes (8th place – Navy Stripes, 7th place – Nude Lace and 6th place – Orange Love) did a great job putting together a look that also is very practical for the lifestyle of a lot of over 40 woman. This is an outfit that could be worn when you want to go out and have lunch with some girlfriends, if you were going, shopping, on vacation, or just about anywhere. You would really get a lot of mileage out of it and it’s such a pleasant change from pants.
Annette anchored this look with this stunning floral print skirt that. It the kind of floral pattern that makes a statement but isn’t overwhelming. Big colorful florals are hot now and this is a perfect choice.
Next came this cute white tie blouse that gives you some shape up top, but keeps things casual by having a tie waist. If I can give you one tip about white shirts ( o.k. maybe two) make sure you buy a quality shirt that is fitted and gives you shape. Nothing looks worse than a thin, baggy shirt. Also, don’t spend too much mony on a white shirt as white shirts yellow over time, so you can’t expect to have it around for many years. Your best bet is to check out discount fashion places that carry quality names at low prices.
The Accessories played a big part in this look, really making it pop. That green faux croc bag add a little exotic to this outfit and ties in nicely with the cute strppy sandals. Love the straw hat, chic tortise shell sunglasses and the earrings. It’s always nice to have a bit of bling!
