I love getting your emails, especially your photos. It proves that style doesn’t end at a certain age. Take a look at some of the inspirational outfits submitted this week.
Line, who writes a fashion blog in Norway, looks right in white! She’s created a very slimming look by dressing in one color top and bottom (white) and then contrasting that with a different color jacket over top. This creates a long lean line that makes you look taller and slimmer.
Any color jacket would have done the trick, but I like the way she chose this beautiful neutral shade. White + neutrals is a very classy way to wear white. It brings the white to life, but still keeps the outfit looking elegant. The blazer also adds a dressy touch to this casual outfit. And her melon bag adds a touch of excitement!
What a refreshing look for summer, Line! Fresh From the Garden
Nothing says summer quite like gingham and daisies. Fashion blogger Sue looks fresh in her baby blue and white gingham garden party dress. Sue has the right idea with nude heels. A dark shoe would be too overpowering for this feminine dress. Avoid heavy accessories too.
Lovely and fresh, Sue!
Prints are making a huge statement this season. Whether they are graphic, ethnic, floral or stripes, you can bet that if you are wearing any type of print, you’ll be on-trend. Bertha blossoms in this floral print skirt. The solid black camisole balances the floral print and the wedges add focus to the skirt. Very pretty, Bertha.
Mixed Prints When you can’t decide on just one print, why not try mixing and matching prints? Julia mixes a polka dot blouse with Chevron print pants. What makes them work well together is the common color scheme. Black and white tie the outfit together even though the prints are dramatically different. Julia’s striped tote and red heels are playful and fun. You look very confident Julia. Please send us more of photos of your mixing prints magic! Don’t be shy! Email me your photos, your age, where you are from, and any details about your outfit to: email@example.com . You’ll be featured on the Facebook page as well as in an upcoming What I Wore. I love hearing from you and cheering you on, Glam Gals!
