Arms and legs and necks are coming out from under cool-weather clothes. Linen and cotton and light prints are showing up, and pedicures are on the schedule. We women over 40 enjoy summer as much as anyone, and many of us choose to not show off a lot of skin (if you do, you go, you) while we stay cool and calm.
Here’s some favorites from real-life women who have figured out summer chic formulas:
“Wafty” dresses. These loose and flowy dresses are ideal for summer style, while providing a nice amount of coverage. They don’t touch our skin, and a breeze can make it right through the lightweight fabric.
Jumpsuits. As long as they don’t grab us, summer weight jumpsuits are stylish one-stop dressing. Open the collar, roll up the sleeves, and add a few bright accessories.
Airy blouses and trousers, a warm weather classic. If you don’t love wearing shorts, how about a pair of lightweight, flowy trousers in a floral print. Show some shoulder if you like, and go light on the jewelry.
Knee skirts and no hose! I love to wear a skirt in the warm months, to let the air circulate. Bare legs are even better, as Greetje demonstrates.
Stay fabulous, stay cool, and see you at Visible Monday,
