It’s always up to you, how much skin you’re comfortable showing in summer. And of course, our workplaces may have dress codes (blergh) that prohibit a hint of skin. One thing that should not stop us, however, is our age. We might pass on a tube top (unless you want to do it). And super short-shorts don’t make me feel comfortable, but maybe they’re your jam. So show some skin, ladies, we’re not dead yet. : >
Go simple, classic, denim. Pam of Sidewalk Shoes is polished and summer-y in her classic white jeans and off-the-shoulder chambray ruffled blouse. A lot of us feel comfortable showing some shoulder; here’s a simple-chic way to do it.
Do summer-dressy with a little skin showing. Amy of Amy’s Creative Pursuits modeled one of her StitchFix pieces, and she looks divine. Love the way this dress flows, and the charming open neck/shoulders. She decided not to buy it, as it doesn’t mesh with her lifestyle, but she does look fab.
Shorts can be dressed up and keep us cool. Anna of Looking Fabulous At 50 put together an unexpected and sophisticated look for dinner-out, with crisp white shorts and peep-toe heels. I love this look, and showing leg this way is so dashing.
If you prefer to show just a bit of skin. Darlene of Aquamarina Style chose a slightly more covered, but still skin-baring blouse with a flattering wrap waist. If you really, truly prefer to stay covered, this is the perfect way to go: cool and modest. Love the pops of red from her bag and garden.
An easy-fitting tank top with cropped trousers. Christine of Bon Chic Style is easy-breezy in a white tank top and cropped wide-leg trousers. The tank looks perfectly fitted, not clingy, and shows a picture-perfect amount of skin for a walk at the marina. Love, love Christine’s hat and sunglasses too.
Stay fabulous and share as much/little skin as you like, it’s hot out there, xo,
