Don’t be a copy cat
In fashion over 40, it is like this Oscar Wilde quote
Be yourself – everyone else is already taken
Tweet this. For me this means classic (denim skirt, striped T-shirt, patent leather pumps, statement bag) with a twist (zipper detail on the shoulders, mixing green and blue, orange statement bag). What about you?
This outfit is a skirt version of Casual Friday. The pumps keep the look office appropriate in a casual work environment. Since it was a rainy day I added my trench coat. The orange bag adds a pop of color on a rainy gray day.
Another classic with a twist
This example is a work outfit for a warm summer day. The lizard belt is a shade darker than the shoes. The color of the shoes elongates the legs. The zippers on the side of the pants add a twist to this classic look.
The black color of the top and the black in the print pick up the black weave in the linen pants. The brown hues in the cardigan pick up the hue of the Kieselstein Cord belt and slingbacks
You can find another example of how I styled the striped top in the post at the link. How do you tweak your classics to stay interesting? Do you like zippers?
P.S. Like one of these looks? Then please pin them to your own Pinterest board so your friends, and family can see them too.
