What really takes…
Jennifer Lopez looks effortlessly chic and comfy in a denim romper and sky-high wedges. A romper is the ultimate go-to for summer. It is an easy piece to throw on and off and saves you time since making sure your top matches your bottom is not an issue. When you are over 40, be sure to find a romper with shorts that mid-thigh, or longer, and make sure it is not too tight. JLo may be able to get away with short shorts, but most of us are not on stage every day like she is (nor do we have her legs)

Accompany it with a pair of cropped black trousers by Eileen Fisher. The pant has a slouchy silhouette without looking oversized with the hem hitting just above the ankle

Supermodel Miranda Kerr shows us how to effortlessly pull off the suede fringe jacket look. Kerr’s jacket has that “WOW” factor. Emulating this look works well in spring when it’s time to lighten up your fabrics but there is always that chance of a sudden drop in temperatures. The secret to really making this outfit work is to not clutter it with too much color and texture.
