NYFW Outfit – Chico’s

September 11, 2019

It’s always an honor to represent one of my very favorite brands at New York Fashion Week.  I especially love that these Chico’s pieces are ones I’ll be wearing again and again this fall and winter.

The Pieces


Rain Trench Jacket

A chic wardrobe staple, the classic trench gets a fun update with  leopard piping and lining! With a removable hood, this piece is very versatile, as well as water-repellent and rain-season-ready! But just don’t expect me to wait for rain to wear it … no way!


Animal Print Essential Layer Top

A super soft and stretchy long sleeve top is the perfect fall layering piece.  It will go with everything! You know animal print is a neutral, right?!


Super Stretch Pull-On Bootcut Pants

These pants are SO flattering!  Seriously!  The bi-stretch Secret Stretch fabric is so comfortable and figure-friendly!  Add in some bootcut hems and your legs will be looking long and lean!  (BTW, I’m wearing the TALL length, perfect on me at  5’7″ with heels.)


Cheetah-Print Oblong Scarf

I have an easier time styling an oblong scarf. Anyone else?  There just seems to be countless ways to wear it and if you’re in a hurry a quick around the neck looks super chic!  And of course by now you all know that animal print will be HUGE this season.


Cat Eye Colorblock Sunglasses

With UVA and UVB protection, these fun and funky sunglasses will become your go-to head-turning pair!


Faux Tortoiseshell Hoop Earrings

These are THE earrings you need this fall!  Between the on-trend tortoiseshell and the feather-light weight, you will be reaching for this pair again and again.

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce.

    Such a gorgeous outfit, but the sunglasses are my favorite. I could sadly never pull them off but they look fabulous on you!

      They’re definitely a fashion risk! I’m not sure how many situations I’ll actually be able to wear them, but I do love them! I got so many questions about them at fashion week … no one could believe they were $13 on Amazon! 😀

      Thanks so much for stopping by!!
