It happens to the best of us. We start working on many different things, not realizing the dates on the calendar. Then, it hits you. it could either be in the dead of night, dripping from a cold sweat or throwing a side-eye to all the extra families at brunch on Sunday. You forgot it’s Mother’s Day, and even worse is you don’t have a gift to show for it.
New York Fashion Week is always an explosion of trends and this season was no exception. Yet, as we age less and less seems wearable. Lauren and Carol of Fountain Of 30 have taken a long hard look at the week that was and have narrowed down the Top 10 NYFW Fall ’17 trends women over 40 can wear next fall.
At first I was not sure this trend was age appropriate. Then Carol and I got to talking about how to style fall’s hot shoe trend: block heel ankle strap pumps and I was won over. They are a more sophisticated Mary Jane style and I particularly love the ones with multi straps. You can go a little crazy with the pattern since baroque and florals are so in this season but that could look a little too trendy if you are over 40 and don’t know how to pull the look off properly (don’t go there unless you really know what you are doing or are a fashion risk taker). A safer bet is a black suede, patent or velvet block heel ankle strap pump
