What’s the best thing about fashion over 40? You already own a pair of ankle crop flare jeans in your closet … from the year 2000! However, the worst part is figuring out what to wear to stay on trend but not look silly for your age. Especially when the season is changing and you may have a bit of fashion dread about the warmer weather. Start by wearing pieces that are comfortable and fit well. Lately I find oversized pieces to be a great solution to this dilemma!
Post-dinner walks in the park, Saturday shopping trips, brunches al-fresco, ahhh! The benefits of warmer weather and sunshine soaked days are upon us. With all the time spent strolling around, nobody wants to have a cumbersome, heavy oversized bag weighing them down. After editing your bag down to the essentials, it’s time to do a little springtime shopping and consider snapping up a new, cute carryall.
There are some trends I know I will simply never wear. Case in point: the off-the-shoulder trend. Even though shoulders may be one of the last things “to go” on women (basically because the skin’s gravitational pull keeps our shoulders looking smooth) I think this trend should be reserved for young women under 30. Then …
Thank God it all comes back to the block heel. Roger Vivier can be credited with this shoe silhouette which was considered very new and different 1965, when it came down the Yves Saint Laurent runway. Actually that one had a square toe and looked more like a Pilgrim shoe with it’s large metal buckle. In fact the same shoes has been brought back this season, I digress. I just love my fashion history.
What is old is almost always new again especially when it comes to fashion so it should come as no surprise block heels are once again on trend for spring.
