I like to browse the designer runway collections, via the New York Times Style section. There’s a slide show for each designer. And yes, there are crazy, exaggerated looks but also some fetching styles that can be adapted for us over-40 women. Our style is our own, anyway, to suit our own lives and inclinations.
I picked a few looks from the latest shows that I think are wearable. Or at least inspiring.
A clean, monochromatic look is always chic, if you lean toward the minimalist side. I could definitely wear this look, modified in color (navy or black for me), and slightly less voluminous trousers. I do love the trouser length, the loose shirt cuffs, and the boots:
A classic sheath dress in an unexpected orange color and with a deep ruffled hem is simple and pretty. Easy to wear and accessorize too. I’d like it in cotton for Florida spring/summer:
Embroidered outerwear is stunning for any season, at any length. This piece is stately and elegant, love the white-on-black and the simple accessories:
Feminine boho styles with built-in pattern mixing are also wearable by any age woman. You do have to feel the boho, though, and choose your mood. This wouldn’t do at Goldman Sachs, but I’d love it for a summer lunch, with wedge sandals.
Stay fabulous, and see you at the new “Easy does it” Visible Monday,
