5 Fall Trends You Can Definitely Rock Over 40!

October 30, 2018

Fall is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier!  I love fall weather, fall food, fall holidays, and fall clothing, including this fall’s style’s trends! I thought it was time to do a little review of some of my biggest style trends this fall. Sure, as more mature women, we’re seldom chasing trends like our younger counterparts, but we also like to look up-to-date, relevant, and just plain have some fun with fashion!  Here are few trends that you can absolutely ROCK in midlife and beyond!

Animal Print

Animal print is HUGE this fall!  Though leopard has been a classic for awhile, this fall the trend is extra popular!  Whether it’s classic leopard, colored leopard, zebra, or snakeskin, you can’t go wrong letting your queen of the jungle out to play right now!  Be sure to wear this trend in the way that works best for you. Pick a more subtle print or a wild one; wear one animal print piece, or go animal print crazy! Usually I prefer to use animal print in small doses, like accenting an outfit with a leopard belt, bag or a pair of shoes.  However, with leopard absolutely everywhere this season, I gave in and got a leopard tunic length button front shirt that I admit to just loving and wearing all the time!
