Fashion seems to speak about very special trends these days, introducing the summer must haves that will stay with us for many more seasons. Neutral and classic colours, gold details that make the look glow, nature-inspired prints and polka dot patterns. Together with little black and white gingham squares, denim fabrics cut and sewed for dresses and jackets too.
Among the trends of this summer I have chosen those essentials on which it is really worth investing and which will always be on fashion at every new season. Above all, I have selected those which give style and elegance to the looks of every over 40 woman. Stay stuned to discover the summer must haves I have selected for you!
The black one-piece swimsuit and / or the high-waisted bikini
On the beach, this year, a timeless elegance is back, with the black one-piece swimsuit. The style with cut details and side seams, made of shaping fabrics in the belly area is just a perfect solution after 40 and 50. A new entry for this year is the bikini with the high-waisted slip, a design that helps to slim the figure.
Tailored shorts in neutral colours
White, beige or black. Every woman should have a pair of shorts in her favourite neutral colour. Provided it is high-waisted, with wide legs and in a light fabric, preferably in silk or linen. On vacation you can also wear it with the one-piece swimsuit, complete the look with an elegant jacket, a pair of flat embellished sandals, for a casual and very chic style.
The white jacket
I love the white jacket! It is the best solution for summer evenings, it elevates and defines every look. My preferred summer look wants it paired with shorts. But it is awesome with everything, from the beloved denim pants, to the floral dress and the party garment.
The shirt dress
The most useful and quite elegant dress that can be worn during the day, with or without a thin belt at the waist. In the evening, it becomes a kind of kimono that you can wear unbuttoned on cooler days.
The gingham print skirt
Small white and black squares are back in summer 2020 fashion. They match perfectly with the classic white T-shirt. They glow with floral blouses, they add some elegance to bright coloured tops.
The elegant blouse
A must have when you want to dress up your casual looks, it makes special shorts and jeans pants. Go for it in a light fabric, with some details that will make your personality shine. From puffed sleeves to frills, from the magical wrap under the breast to the peplum style, from the floral pattern to the precious silk fabric.
The denim dress
Jeans trousers are evergreen, we all know that, but this year denim has coloured many different clothing. Jackets and dresses are among the new entries, and for sure the denim dress remains one of those garments that we will also wear in autumn, combining it with cardigans and trendy booties. The denim dress I love the most for this summer has a short length, and makes you stand out if you pair it with a thin belt at the waist, white shorts with wide legs that can be seen under the dress hem.
The shoulder bag
The shoulder bag – branded or not – is back too, a style that will make you fall in love for its versatility and practicality. A small bag you can use day and night. I also take it to go to the supermarket. It adds an elegant notch to the casual look and worn crossing the body is always a practical solution, especially when we have huge bags to take home!
The flat sandals
Decorations and above all straps, these are the characteristics of the super flat sandals for this summer. If you choose them in neutral colours or in snake print materials you can wear them with many different clothing, from jeans pants, to shorts and skirts, and especially with gorgeous long dresses.
The heel sandals
A pair of heeled sandals must not miss in our wardrobe, for any important occasion. Gold colour is one of the trends of the moment. Not only that, gold is just perfect with everything and will make you glow for the next seasons too.
