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.
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.
