Who’s wearing what this summer? Take a look at these photos my Fabulous After 40 readers sent in.
Lovely in Lace
Crochet and lace have been popular this summer. Loretta’s cream sheath dress has delicate lace-like stitching that almost looks like an artistic spiderweb. It’s very pretty and feminine.
To show off her waist, Loretta added a thin black leather and polished the look off with a pair of Tory Burch flats.
Black and White Stripes
Did you read my recent post about how to get mileage out of a striped outfit? Trina, 50, from Salt Lake City, this cute striped suit is very versatile, and she can make it look different with a simple change of shirt or shoes. She also wears this with flat, black sandals. The black and white stripe trend is hot at the moment, so ladies check it out.
Trina, You look crisp and completely pulled together.
Rebecca, 48, is a CPA, who loves to blog about fashion. Just after I wrote about the popularity of high-low maxi dresses for summer, Rebecca sent in this photo. Doesn’t she look a Grecian Goddess in this royal blue dress with that sexy bit of leg peeking out?
One of my readers recently asked me, “What’s an appropriate outfit to wear to church in the summer?” Julia wears this. She looks lovely and appropriate for church in a high-low maxi skirt with a color block, side-tie top.

Fun and Professional Florals
Today’s florals are modern, bold, and bright. Margaret gets the look just right.

Tired of pants and don’t want to wear shorts? My reader Donna has the solution. The easiest thing to wear to beat the heat and look cute is a pretty summer dress. Take a look.
If you want a dress that with a sporty, natural vibe then a tank style t-shirt dress is the way to go. Not only is it casual and comfy, but it is also super figure flattering. So, if you have been working out and wanted to show your figure off, this is the dress to do it in.
This is a knockout. When Donna was invited to a wedding, she chose this beautiful orange cocktail dress with a sexy keyhole neckline. Donna’s bone colored, T-strap high heels are very classy and have the studs give it a modern edge. I love the way the gold studs on the shoes mirror the gold hardware on the dress. Gorgeous choice!
