Style Meets Comfort ~ What I Wore

Whether you’re out and about on the go, or spending the day at home, comfort and style are key. Take a look at how these bloggers combine both in this week’s What I Wore.

What to wear to church

At Church

JoLynne has shared her style with Fabulous After 40 readers before.  This time she has a solution to a common style dilemma.

We all want to look nice for church, but getting dressed up on a Sunday is usually the last thing we feel like doing. Recently, Jo-Lynne struck the perfect balance with this laid back, Sunday Best look.

For church, JoLynne paired a black maxi skirt with one of her favorite tanks in  bright red, then pulled the look together by adding a scarf, and some striking gold accessories. Relaxed, but refined! Be sure to check out Jo-Lynne’s daily, over 40 mom style and much more at her blog Musings of a Housewife.

Grey knit dress

At The Office

A long day at work calls for a professional, comfortable outfit. Style blogger Beata has been featured on fabulous after 40 before. This time she chose this grey knit dress for a day at the office when she knew she’d be working long past 5 o’clock. It’s chic, but super comfy and would even be great to wear out to a late dinner afterwards.

Beata matched her necklace color to her dress and chose a similar colored shoe. The result is beautiful monochromatic look that is slimming and very elegant. I love the ruched, belted waist too. I want this dress! You can see more of Beata’s  style at her blog Fashion Adventures at Any Age.

Tunic and Capri Leggings

At Home

Just because you’re spending the day at home doesn’t mean you can’t do it in style! Pamela relaxes in a pair of embellished capri leggings and an Eileen Fisher tunic that she picked up on a recent trip to Chicago.

The gold trim on the tunic is lovely, understated detail that makes this outfit look special. Don’t you love the gorgeous gold statement necklace? It’s such an artistic piece and really adds a lot of personality and richness to Pam’s look. Casual but Classy!

Pamela shares her thoughts on fashion, achieving confidence, strength, and joy over 50 at her blog Over 50 Feeling 40. You look fabulous, ladies! Thank you for sharing your inspirational style.

  1. I love Long Skirts but I long awful in them since I’m 5 feet and wears size 10, how can I make it work?

    1. Hi Ging, There are a couple of things you can do if you are short and want to wear a long skirt. You can wear flatform shoes or block heel sandals to add some height. Also, I’d suggest you do a monochromatic look which means all one color from head to toe. So if you choose a blue skirt, then wear a blue top. This creates a long, lean line that makes you look taller. If you can find a maxi dress vs. skirt this is even better. You won’t get any break at the waist which can cut you in two and make you look wider. Also, make sure the cut of your skirt isn’t too voluminous (too many folds and gathers. If you are short all that fabric will add bulk and make you look shorter and heavier. A streamlined look is better. Finally, a top with an open neck such as a v-neck or a scoop neck that reveals your neck will also help create a tall, slimming line. I hope that helps. All the best, Deborah

  2. I love the grey dress outfit but to be very honest…I think the undergarments are not appropriate for a knit dress. I especially dislike to see leg shape through the dress and I believe a slip would be helpful or another size.
