If you are like me and prefer to wear wild, bold colorful prints in the summer….when you’re over 40 pants are actually the way to go. To avoid looking too clownish tone down a pair of crazy print pants with an oversized tunic top. I’m wearing a cotton v-neck sweater in an XL I found in the clearance rack at Kohl’s, but this Equipment ‘Asher’ V-Neck Cashmere Sweater is going on my must-have list. (You can’t have too many black v-necks).
As you already know, I’m all about pajama dressing. I love that the lingerie-as-daywear trend has legs and it’s not just for the festival loving 20-somethings either! Wear a mid length silky robe as a jacket or a longer style on cool summer evenings. Look for a satin or silk in solid black or a pattern that speaks to you (like florals or stripes). Be careful to avoid the telltale lace trim or it will be a dead giveaway the robe is really meant to stay indoors.
Wear your robe open with the belt tied in the back as an over coat with a simple and fitted outfit underneath like skinny jeans and a tank, or my favorite…a silk sleeveless jumpsuit. Or you can wear a robe tied as a dress…as long as it hits past the knee. You are NOT to old to rock this effortless look. Trust me, I wear my robe in public all the time…and I’m pretty sure I look chic, not homeless.
Simple and chic come together in this neutral ensemble on model Chrissy Teigen. A basic white dress is an essential for every women during the summer. It’s an easy piece to dress up or down and can be worn with your favorite cardigan and/or accessories. To start the look off try this white cami dress by T by Alexander Wang. Pair it with this lightweight longline camel duster coat from Boohoo.
