Feminine prints need the right cut for ageless style
There are prints, pattern and fabrics that are considered ultra-feminine. One of them is gingham. It’s also an eternal classic like polka dots, pin dots, floral prints and lace. Unfortunately, these very feminine prints and pattern may lead into the cute, romantic, naive territory when paired with certain cuts.
Just recall Brigit Bardot’s yellow gingham wedding dress. So romantic! Perfect for her naive girl image at that time, despite she was resourceful – the dress could be worn as a summer dress later. While it is a great summer dress for any 20 something, it’s not great for us. In a casual work environment, the 20 something may even get away with wearing it on Casual Friday at a meeting during summer time.
Similarly a Laura Ashley type floral print or super-large polka dots are made for girls less than 10 years old and clowns, respectively. It’s all about how to look ageless in floral prints, how to have ageless style in lace, polka dots, and gingham, you name it.
Today’s LOTD shows a preppy feminine outfit inspiration with gingham that works for us over 40.
