The Fashion Trend Appropriate for All Ages

When it comes to fashion, there are three words one NEVER, wants to hear in a sentence… am I right, ladies?

Hitting our stride at 40 or 50 plus can leave us at times a bit befuddled as to which fashion trends are appropriate for this chapter in our lives. But there is one fashion trend that all of us can wear, it’s feminine, flattering and defining the season.

What in the name of style are we talking about here? The sizzling cold shoulder top (or dress), with the power to stomp out “Dowdy”, “Boring” and “Faux Pas” one word at a time!

Here, I’ve put together an OOTD (outfit of the day), starting with my fabulous, lacy cold shoulder top. A pair of taupe capris with white polka dots added a fun sprinkle of pattern to the neutral top.

Now it’s time to layer on some summery accessories to pull this look together with style. A bead and stone necklace plays nicely with the taupe shade in the pants. A pair of gold toned bangle bracelets and hoop earrings add just the right amount of bling.

A neutral pair of strappy wedge sandals elevate the look, without causing me to walk like I’m 90.

No outfit is complete without a cool pair of shades.

You’re probably asking yourself if I slid down the slide when I reached the top of this play house, right? Me and my inner child slid down that slide like we were at a waterpark!

After this photo shoot, I wore this OOTD on a lunch date with my honey.  He kept saying, “you look so pretty”.  After the third compliment, I asked what he liked about what I was wearing, his reply?  He kissed my shoulder, enough said!

In answer to the question of the day, YES, we can all embrace the cold shoulder trend at our age, all shapes and sizes are welcome to join in the fun.

Here’s to making our own fashion rules! Thanks for stopping by darlings.

    Hi, I just found your blog today. Thank you for saying the cold shoulder or off the shoulder trend is ok for those of us over 50. I just turned 53. I recently purchased an off the shoulder blouse but I haven’t been brave enough to wear it . I am full figured and self conscious about wearing that style despite the sales lady telling me it was flattering. (She HAS to say that though, right?) Your post encouraged me, now I just need a reason to wear it somewhere.

      Hi Robin. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your fashion experiences with our tribe. That’s one of the things I love about our cozy cyber friendship spot, it’s a safe place to talk about ourselves.

      1. I’m so happy you bought an off the shoulder/cold shoulder blouse! Yea Robin!

      2. Put that blouse on, some lipstick lipstick, put your cold shoulders back and rock that look baby! You’ve got this and I can’t wait to hear or see a picture (share it with our tribe in the comment Section) of you killing this trend. Xo Jonet
