Whether you are heading off to the office or out to dinner, a fitted jacket with a good shoulder jacket is a great way to show off your figure and dress up an outfit.

Here Susan layers a graphic black and white jacket over her monochromatic top and pants. This crisp look works for daytime or evening. Susan keeps her accessories including her clutch to a minimum so that the jacket can be the star of the show.

See more of Susan’s classic style on her blog Fifty, not frumpy.

Embrace Radiant Orchidhow-to-wear-radiant-orchid

I’m seeing Pantone’s color of the year popping up all over. From fingernails to purses to umbrellas, you can pretty much wear the trend any way you wish. Here are 7 of my favorite ways to wear it.

This spring Darlene loves wearing radiant orchid though she admits she’s never really been a fan of purple. I think it looks great on her, especially paired with black.

You can get a glimpse of Darlene is some of her other favorite colors by visiting her blog whosaprettygirl.

Denim is a wardrobe staple, and for a very good reason. It’s one of the most versatile items in our wardrobes. It can easily be dressed up or down depending on what you pair with it.

Jess takes a walk on the glam side when she wears a favorite pair of light denim with a faux fur-collared cardigan.

Check out Jess’s blog Elegantly Dressed and Stylish to see more of her signature style.

    Her classic outfits, her lovely hair, and the simplicity of her elegant taste really make Susan Street the best-dressed FAF you’ve ever shown us!

    Your friend Susan has a great figure and suits those little jackets she wears so well. Whilst the little houndstooth jacket was cute, she needs those jewel colours as they POP on her. I would venture to say that she might have worn a piece of her own vintage jewellery to just bring out those lovely eyes and keep it funky.
    Loving your page. Its lively and trendy and keeps its eye on whats youthful and flattering on women my age. Looking forward to more.

    • Hi Lesley,
      Thanks for that great suggestion. Be sure to watch for a vintage jewelry post that will be up shortly. I’m so glad you are enjoying my site and please do let me know what types of features you’d like to see.I value all my reader’s input! Cheers, Deborah

  3. Thanks again for the shout out! I’m also loving the style of the other two fashion bloggers…just started following them!

  4. Thank you Deborah,
    So kind of you to feature me!! I appreciate it very much. Boyfriend jeans are great, as long as one styles them a certain way. Typically if you are wearing a loose jean, I think they look great with something, be it a jacket, a peplum top, fitted sweater etc. a bit more form fitting. :-)
    I am happy to be with ladies with great style! xo jess
