After a long winter it’s refreshing to slip on a pretty dress. Here’s a look at the dresses my readers have been wearing lately.
Regal In Purple
Do your recognize Donna? She’s a regular contributor to my weekly What I Wore post.
This week she looks stunning in a deep, jewel-tone shade of purple that suits her winter coloring. She’s accented that with touches of silver to make the look pretty and polished.
Purple happens to be one of my favorite colors because it looks so regal and also suggests creativity. (Check out my post on what purple communicates and tips for wearing purple to find out more about what I mean.)
Just lovely, Donna!
Classic Color Block
Julia, who’s 48 and from Washington, D.C., injects color into her wardrobe by using the color blocking technique.
She’s paired a fuchsia dress with an orange fitted blazer to create a polished and playful look. Her matching bag and shoes are the icing on the cake!
Bold and Beautiful
When you see a woman wearing a dress she loves the joy comes shining through, and that’s certainly the case here. Georgette looks radiant in this stunning wrap dress that’s the perfect silhouette for her very feminine, curvy shape.
The geometric print is bold and modern. Not everyone would have the confidence to pull that off but Georgette manages it beautifully. I love the combination of the black and green. It’s so rare and fresh.
You look ready to hit the town Georgette!
A Twist on a Traditional Maxi Dress
Maxi dresses are a popular choice for summer dresses for women over 40. They’re great at concealing problem spots.
Jyothi shies away from prints and bold colors but recently celebrated the start of spring with this 100% silk maxi dress in eggplant/brown.
Although Jyothi is only 5’3″, she loves the romantic, lightweight, breezy and fresh feel of this long bohemian-style dress.
