Happy Thursday, friends! Now, welcome back for part two of fall outfits and trends for women over 60.
I began on Monday sharing inspiration for you for fall outfits and information about the current fall fashion trends…for those who would like to look current.
You can find the first three trends in FALL OUTFITS AND TRENDS FOR WOMEN OVER 60, PART 1.
Sometimes trends become garments that we see every year, but once it is declared a “trend” we see more versions of the garment.
So, this year we are seeing lots and lots of ways to wear animal prints…which last year were not as fashion forward.
We have seen today’s trends before, but (as I said) they are being pushed this fall.
So let’s see one way I will style them…..
FALL OUTFITS AND TRENDS FOR WOMEN OVER 60: TREND #4
FALL TREND #4: LONG CARDIGANS
I own several long cardigans, but I recently purchased this navy WEAREVER TEXTURED OPEN FRONT CARDIGAN from JJILL because it is lighter and the length is not too long.
I also like the fact that there are no buttons. Most of my long cardigans have buttons and are longer.
This cardigan is currently on sale, and until October 1, you can take an additional 40% off that! Good price and I like the cardigan.
Because one of my adjectives is polished, I often wear tops like this one which will elevate my casual looks from a tee or tank.
It is no longer available, but there are similar tops at Banana Republic Factory where I bought this one last spring.
My pants are new brown denim and they are perfect new additions to a wardrobe that is predominately vibrant autumn palette.
These are the SLIM ANKLE JEANS in dark walnut from Talbots.
Talbots has a BOGO sale going on through September 17…buy one item, get one for 50% off…a great way to pick up refreshments for fall outfits!
My new Easy Spirit shoes will go with many fall outfits this year.
These are the KINNDLE LUG SOLE CASUAL LOAFERS.
Also, I want to point out that I still like this cardigan from Chico’s… SPUN RAYON CARDIGAN
FALL OUTFITS AND TRENDS FOR WOMEN OVER 60: TREND #5
FALL TREND #5: LONG VESTS AND FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS
Lots to say here and I know what some of you are thinking with this inspiration shot for fall outfits!
When I rolled by wardrobe over from a winter to a vibrant autumn palette, it was the best decision that I ever made.
I just look more vibrant and younger in my best colors.
But, I confess letting go of all of my black was difficult. So I held on to a few items.
These faux leather leggings from Soft Surroundings were purchased at least 8 years ago.
I love these because they look more like real leather leggings than any I have seen on the market since then…they are not shiny like so many are.
I just could not let them go.
I did let go of a long knit vest from Chico’s that I also had owned for years…and wish I had held onto it.
I do not regret selling my black coats or jackets.
I also kept at least three pair of black shoes…these Viga Spiga slip-ons have been a favorite for a long time. I originally found them at a Nordstrom Rack.
I was in Talbots recently trying on clothing for you, the audience, so decided to try on this sweater vest from the sale rack.
It is the CASCADING TRAVEL VEST, and they still have a few left.
Knowing that long vests and faux leather leggings were on sale, I thought…wow, I really like this and think to wear it once in awhile would be ok…it fits my style.
I loved it with the Talbots THREE-QUARTER SLEEVE CAFE TEE…this a new look for my fall outfits.
The tee is an off-white, creamy ivory color and not white, so I think it tempers the affect of the black on my complexion and I can make it work.
I like the look for fall outfits.
I think the faux leather leggings that look closest to mine are the SIMPLY VERA VERA WANG HIGH RISE FAUX LEATHER SHAPING LEGGINGS. (In black….look and fit great with a very affordable price.)
I also like the pair at Chico’s…first in the slide show below….
Here is some help with your fall outfits for these trends…..
First, long vests….
Second, faux leather leggings…
Third…the long cardigan…look at the Liz Claiborne at Penney’s…I believe that is my favorite. Lots of different price points here…
I hope I have given you some inspiration today for your own fall outfits and to know what the fall trends are.
Don’t be too hard on me about having a black outfit for fall. I know I said never again, but I have softened enough to add this look and use some black pieces that I saved.
Thank you for being here…and make sure that you always…………………………
