Good morning my dear readers! The September crisp air could only inspire, to a woman so sensitive to the cold like me, a post entirely dedicated to the jacket, but not to any jacket, to The One that will change and sparkle your look. Perfect for mid-seasons, essential to create stylish and refined outfits. What I would like to tell you, today, is that you should create an outfit out of the usual stereotypes and expectations linked to the image of the over 40 woman, often defined into classic and a bit serious looks. It is good to get out of these clichés to mix styles and get endless possibilities, enjoy oneself and find, above all, that personal style that will make you feel at ease and appreciated by others, without forgetting class and elegance.
The formal jacket of your trouser suit
Let’s start with denim trousers, my second skin, I dare say, when the days get cooler. Do you want to wear them to go to the office? Well, if the dress code is not strictly formal and does not force you to dark blue and grey suits, then give a whirl, wear the denim trousers you are in love with to spice up your days at work and add that bit of healthy madness to formal rules. But pair them with unique and refined items, like the white silk blouse, (don’t tell me you do not have at least one in your wardrobe!), the shoes with medium block heels. And the look is ready, elegant and formal, but also glam and fresh. And for your free time, go for coloured boots, or for very feminine shoes, wear a special fancy top.
The feminine shaped jacket in casual fabric
The jacket worn over the silk or viscose dress is another easy to achieve and always winning combination. Are you fed up with this kind of outfits? Do you want something a bit outside the box? Play, then, with different styles and mix them together, adopt the mix and match tactics. Choose a fitted jacket with a super feminine style, but in an opaque fabric, such as cotton, jersey or light wool. I’m just speaking about an elegant piece par excellence, but in a decidedly more casual fabric. And it’s not over! Choose the jacket in a lighter or darker shade than the colour of your dress and add jewelled sandals matching the colour of your jacket. What need I to say again! It takes very little to create a perfect look! Sometimes the details can make the difference.
The biker jacket that drives you crazy
Last but not least, one of my favourite accessories, the biker jacket, worn on the elegant dress. With flat and formal shoes of the same colour. The result is really special. At 40, the calf-length dress with flat shoes risks to produce the spinster effect. But if you mix the styles, rock and romantic together, by wearing the biker jacket and black accessories with that delicate dress, well, the outfit changes completely. What do you think about it?
See you soon, dear readers! You know where to find me if you have any doubts! And have fun finding new combinations!
