If you’ve been following my spring style reports you know that the global influence trend is a huge hit this year.
Rich colors, bold ethnic patterns and exotic details give clothes a fun, festive feel this summer. Looks like these readers are right on target in cute dresses that radiate global chic. Take a look at these photos they sent in.
The Marvelous Maxi
Donna, a loyal Fabulous After 40 reader, looks like an island queen in this gorgeous, strapless maxi dress she wore to dinner while on vacation in Turks and Caicos.
I love the simplicity of this dress on Donna. The subtle tribal pattern, the rich, deep color and the sleek silhouette make this dress very elegant. Plus, it fits Donna perfectly.
Some gals make the mistake of trying to wear skinny high heels with a dress like this but Donna’s pretty, flat sandals keep the look casual and chic. If you love the look of a maxi dress but are looking for a bit more coverage, check out a few of these dresses.
Bold, Ethnic Prints
Morocco and Africa, as well as all the spicy colors of lands far away are a big part of the global trend. Here’s style blogger Antoinette in a bold ethnic print shift dress that combines orange and red with purple for a look that’s pure energy.

This cute dress is a good example of that ethnic vibe. Loyal reader Carina looks like a world traveler in her gorgeous Monaco blue shift dress that makes me think of the Greek Islands. A white sun hat and embellished, kitten heel sandals finish the look. Very pretty, Carina!
