Trench With A Twist!
A trench is one of those wardrobe basics you need in your closet...even better if you can find one with some interesting details! Depending on the climate where you live, a heavier trench will last you through fall and winter. I love the edgy faux leather accents and deep olive green color on this wool trench making it a trench with an elevated twist.
One of the standout trends this season is PINK! This gorgeous L'Agence lace blouse is THE prettiest shade of pink. You can wear it now with jeans but it will also layer beautifully under a jacket when it gets cooler. If pink isn't your thing, it also comes in 4 other colors including black and a pretty green. If you're interested, I shared the link to our popular fall trends post above.
A slouchy, comfy cardigan can help you transition summery dresses, tanks, and tees to fall without much effort at all. This Free People cardigan is medium-weight and oversized. You can throw it over your shoulders on cool nights or keep it on the back of your chair at work.
Another hot trend this season…chunky, lug sole boots and booties! You might remember a version of these cool Steve Madden booties from last year. These were initially a little out of my comfort zone, but I ended up really loving them and wearing them a ton! In fact, I wore mine so much last fall/winter, I needed to grab a fresh new pair. These are now on-sale for $70 so if you were thinking of trying this trend...now's the time!
A tank or cami to wear under jackets or blazers is another basic everyone needs in their wardrobe. This satin tank has a cool chain design detail (very on trend!) so it’s not your average tank, and the v-neckline is flattering on most body types! Bonus - you can wear a regular bra with it too!
This leather Dior saddle bag is a show-stopper. I love the unique shape and the size is perfect for carrying all your essentials. I ended up ordering an embroidered shoulder strap so I can wear it as a cross-body too! It was definitely a splurge, but if you're looking for a versatile designer bag in a fall-neutral, this one is SO luxe and gorgeous. I linked a for-less saddle bag option as well.
After a decade in TV news, a desire to help women "look pretty" sparked a career pivot. I started my own wardrobe consulting business, styling "real" women for many years. In 2014, I changed direction again, using my TV background and styling expertise to launch this website and my YouTube channel. We are now a community of well over 1 million dynamic, vibrant, amazing women over 40... who know that age isn't something you need to hide from. For us, life is just getting started!!
