It is finally that time of year when summer meets autumn. I love the fall. The colors are bright. The days are still warm but, the nights are beginning to cool down.
It’s a great time to take some summer fashions into fall. Everywhere you look styles are changing. But who wants to buy everything new?
While volunteering last week at Dress For Success I decided to try out a trend I have been noticing.
Wearing a crop top over a shirt.
All summer I saw cropped styled tops. I am so too old for them but…. I can always find a way!
What do you think?
It shows a new fun look. I got a lot of compliments from the other ladies. I’d say it was a good idea.
Here’s some more examples I found surfing through the fashion mags and on-line sites.
Now the crop top I am wearing is a type of corset top. Spandex and cotton.
Ready for this? I bought it at Forever 21 and it was only $5.00. I also bought this one (again $5).
It’s a knit material. Lightweight and comfortable.
It’s also a fun way to add to a plain white button-down shirt.

The versatility of this is how many combinations: slacks, jeans, and even skirts you can mix.
So whether you are going to work, going out for fun, on a date, or with friends you can style this trend.
Even us 40, 50, & 60’s group can.
I know it has been awhile since my last post. We were in the midst of moving. What a chore!
Now, it’s back to the 90’s! The trend of the moment – Slip Dresses. So big this summer.
I found some cute ones in the magazines. They even accessorize with shoes.
My opinion is notice the model above can pull this off because she is younger.
For most of us over the age of 40, 50, or even 60, there should probably be some adjustments.
I purchased this one at at a small boutique in Houston called Graceanna’s. It’s longer, two layers, so less clingy.
It was only $40. For a trend that is my favorite price. If you don’t wear it often you didn’t waste a lot of money.
They can range a lot higher.
Love the neutral color.
This is one of my favorite places to shop.
It would be fun to accessorize with shoes, purses, and jewelry. For example:
Back in May I had a suggestion of chunky jewelry for summer. What a great idea. Metallic shoes also a plus.
So fun to see what else you can come up with. Send me your ideas. Would love to hear them.
Hey Fashion Ladies,
I’m a sucker for trendy and a bit edgy fashion. I think it brings a lot of fun into any outfit.
My new obsession is a cropped length jean with no hem, just frayed on the bottom. Nothing too extreme. I also love some fray in the legs but again not too bare. I have seen several styles for example:
Some of the jeans are too torn, especially in the knee area.
But some styles are so fun. They are not too torn, just slightly. I also believe they look great with sneakers or you can dress them up with heels. Either way I think the look is workable. Here are two examples I have seen:
I think even at my age I can definitely pull this off!
So, here is how I styled the frayed jean look for a casual look.
Jeans – Zara Shoes – Adidas
Or a little dressed up
Shoes – Nine West (Older style)
Either way I think it looks great.
See you next time.
