Style Ideas from 40+ Fashion Bloggers

This week meet four bloggers with distinct personal styles. From polished to adventurous to relaxed and casual, these ladies prove that fabulous doesn’t stop at 40. Could you take a look and see what I mean?

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 show’s star.

See more 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 wear the trend any way you wish. Here are 7 of my favorite ways to wear it.

Darlene loves wearing radiant orchids this spring 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’s of her other favorite colors by visiting her blog, whosaprettygirl.



Red Hot Florals

Style blogger Kristin had always considered florals as fussy and better suited to her aunts and grandmothers. Then she discovered this dress hiding in her closet and decided to style it in a fresh, new way.

Look how adding a pair of edgy Vince Camuto booties and a denim moto jacket adds a whole new vibe to this Asian-inspired, retro-style print dress. Very cool!

To see more of  Kristin’s unique style, check out her blog, Highland Fashionista, where she encourages readers to step out of their comfort zone and get creative with fashion.

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

  2. Your friend Susan has a great figure and suits those little jackets she wears so well. While the little houndstooth jacket was cute, she needed those jewel colors as they POP on her. I would venture to say that she might have worn a piece of her vintage jewelry just to bring out those lovely eyes and keep it funky.
    I love your page. It’s lively and trendy and keeps its eye on what’s youthful and flattering to women my age—looking forward to more.

    1. Hi Lesley,
      Thanks for that great suggestion. 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 wear loose jeans, I think they look great with something, be it a jacket, a peplum top, a fitted sweater, etc., a bit more form-fitting. :-)
    I am happy to be with ladies with great style! xo jess

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
