Style For The Next Generation: Modern Heirlooms

We’ve all heard of the concept and perhaps some of us are lucky enough to own some heirloom pieces – usually jewelry, sometimes a fur, maybe a designer handbag or scarf. However, these items tend to be fairly traditional or even dated – classic doesn’t always mean it will last forever. That said, personal style will continue to be your hallmark, so consider whether or not something can become a “modern heirloom” before you invest in a noteworthy piece. Here are some tips when looking for modern heirlooms.

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.

Louder Than Bomber Jackets

The Bomber jacket is the transition jacket that is literally the bomb. This is obvious considering they have been on trend for a few seasons and are still as hot as ever! I did a post on them back in February called An Early Spring? Bombers Away! Well I still have not bought one so I thought I better get on it and guess what? They are selling out like hotcakes. So if you have not bought your bomber jacket for these spring cool days and evenings hop to it!

PWP: Playful Winter Pastels

As a die-in-the-wool New Yorker who drapes herself in black most days, I’m feeling a bit drab. Must I really wait until spring to wear pastels? No way! I say grab some now! And aquamarines don’t count…we’re talking pastel clothes, shoes and accessories! -Lauren Dimet Waters

This year, it wasn’t only the black tuxedo jackets and cigarette pants that hit the runways and red carpet.
