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 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!
I love the kimono trend. My favorite way to wear the kimono trend is with a long kimono left open and billowing! But when I saw this cute little kimono wrap top, I had to have it. The colors and mix of the floral print with the polka dots totally were calling to me.
So one of my new year’s resolutions is to be more helpful to my readers. It’s easy for bloggers to get so caught up in “fashionista world” that they forget about real women who need real wearable workable wardrobes. And hey, since I also have a full-time job and life outside blogging, I need a real wardrobe too! (This doesn’t mean that I won’t also have posts drooling over the latest at New York Fashion Week, because …well, you know I LOVE that too!)
I’ve been spending some time lately thinking about what makes a wardrobe both hard-working AND fun and I keep coming back to this formula: classics/basics mixed with trends.
So here’s my list of favorite outfits of 2017, month by month, built with this simple method!
