Summer Dressing, Confidently Break Rules

Summer AT Forty Five I feel confidence comes with age and with age, it should be easier to find clothes and accessories that work in our real lives. By now I know what suits me and what doesn’t. It is one of the benefits of aging. Coming into our own style. To me, what is important is wearing what you like, and what makes you happy.

The one fashion rule I follow is to buy multiples of the basics; the pieces you will wear to death. It is all about streamlining and refining our wardrobes. So, don’t be afraid to try and work some trends into your wardrobe that break the rules.

Summer At Forty Five You might think pink looks too candy for a mature woman but all I want to say is don’t be afraid of wearing one color head to toe even if it is not the regular black or white. Today fashion has changed so much and women are looking for minimalistic and clean chic pieces. That explains why onesies and monochromatic looks are so in again.

And most of all enjoy the spirit of the summer sun. Have fun.
