Summer Sandal Trend: The Flatform Sandal

Thank God Birkenstocks are once again out of fashion (not that I EVER thought they were in nor would I ever be caught dead in them!). What’s the hot sandal that’s equally as comfortable, but not nearly as ugly this summer? Flatform sandals! You get the height of a heel without the discomfort! Win win. Be warned, don’t try to rock the Frankenstein 4 inch flatform. They will look ridiculous on you if you are over 40 (think “trying too hard”). One or even 2 inches is fine. Any more than that should be for your daughter. Wear your flatform sandals with cropped jeans or even a midi skirt.

Trend To Try With Caution: Embroidered Denim

Now that I really look at this image I realize the embroidered denim trend might be pushing the limits of what is appropriate for women over 40 to wear. However, like most other trends, it’s not just how you wear it, but how much of it you wear. I can’t stress enough that unless you want to look like you just came back from Coachella (which in my opinion is not very cool when you are in your forties and beyond) WEAR ONE EMBROIDERED DENIM ITEM AT A TIME! Yes, I purposely typed that in all bold because I really mean it.
