Happy Wednesdays, everyone! To begin 2024, on Wednesdays we are enjoying street style inspiration for women over 50.
Street Style Inspiration was enjoyed by many last week, and the comments were just as enjoyable as the video
Julie from Australia wrote: “I love the street videos as they give me ideas on how to style outfits and to see real women. The first thing I noticed is the confidence in their body language and the second thing is that they are well groomed eg. hair is done. I particularly paid attention to women with my body type and how they styled wider pants. I also noticed their footwear and how it complemented their outfits.
Thanks for the video and your new ‘format.'”
The large response has encouraged me to continue…at least through January.
It is fun to see what other women wear and occasionally street style inspiration can motivate a new look for us to wear.
We have watched street style in Italy, England, and today…..in Paris!
So get a warm, cozy spot and let’s enjoy Parisian Street Style!
STREET STYLE INSPIRATION FOR WOMEN OVER 50 IN PARIS
Any where we roam, we do not know what we are likely see women (and men) wearing.
Today, let’s enjoy winter in Paris in a video posted about a week ago.
This time I watched the feet and some of the footwear might be a whole conversation on its own!
See if you can spot the unique coat designed in panels!
I hope you enjoy this…..
I always want to know what you learned from the street style and what stood out to you.
Last week, several comments noted the confidence of the people in the video…is it the same today?
STREET STYLE INSPIRATION: FROM DISPLAYS TO THE STREETS
Well, of course, before any garment becomes street style, it starts on a rack or display.
I recently saw this display in Dillard’s, and it surprised me, personally.
I like the brand of cardigan, Ming Wang, and still wear some of their styles…after coming home to work.
This is the Ming Wang Abstract Print Knit Pocketed Open-Front Long Cardigan Jacket, and even on sale it is pricey.
But this display does nothing to sell it…and I am open to hearing all opinions here.
Here is what bothers me…see if you agree:
- The top and pants are wrinkle and not pressed out.
- The topper needs to be one size larger…it seems too small here.
- I do not like the neckline of the top…would prefer it with a simple V-neck and long necklace.
- I believe it would look more flattering with a slimmer leg on the bottom.
If you click on the link, you will see it over a column of black and I like that better than this display.
There is a chance I would wear this (and style it differently) if the sale price was much,much lower.
It is a way to express the creative side of me; however, I am committed to wearing shorter outerwear on top.
What do you think?? What would it take for this cardigan to become street style in any of our cities? Or would it not?
I saw these Born flats at the same time I saw that display and I really like the shoes.
I know they look silver, but this is actually a brushed gold. Plus they are available in five styles.
For some reason, I like bows for spring….but after watching the Street Style video, I am not sure if women in Paris would wear these!
Born is typically very comfortable.
Leigh Ann is wearing new Born athletic shoes for street style in San Antonio!
This is the Born Paloma Sneaker in light gold metallic (I know the image looks silver!)…it comes in six colors.
They looked great on Leigh Ann and she is enjoying wearing this shoe.
OK…friends…your turn to comment on the video or the display…remember that these conversations are interesting to other women and help them.
Stay warm, and make sure that you always…..
STAY STRONG & KEEP SMILING!!
