The Spring/Summer ’16 fashion trends are popping up all over the internet, in magazines and in the stores, but what trends can you really wear when you’re over 40? The options can be overwhelming and you’ve learned from experience to not go overboard, but you don’t want to be boring. It’s almost summer after all! So which new summer trends do you need? We get you want to give your wardrobe an update but don’t want to look like you’re trying too hard either. Well you’ve come to the right place. We weeded through all the latest trends of the season and found pieces we deem appropriate for women over 40, which by no means are boring! If we won’t wear it (and we are admittedly a bit daring sometimes) we will not recommend it. What we do suggest are useful, fun, classic, chic and comfortable fashion pieces to brighten up your summer of 2016. Additionally we bet you can wear some of these items into fall and for seasons to come.

No, you don’t have to be a cheerleader or even 16 to partake in this hot trend. Of all the shoe trends for the Spring ’16 season (and there are many) one I am loving is the pom pom embellishment.

This month I’d like to talk about one of my favorite fashion topics: shoes! More specifically a spring shoe trend that has completely dominated the season, the lace up sandal. I consider this trend to be an updated and more refined spin on the gladiator sandals that we couldn’t get away from a few years ago. For 2016, the laces are delicate and thin, feminine and much more universally flattering than earlier versions of this trend.
Can you think of a better way to kick-off 2016 than with a fresh new pair of fabulous shoes?
