Chunky heels are MADE for walking! No more tip-toeing around deck parties in stilettos. These are all-day/all-night shoes that scream chic over-40 style. Balance your yin and yang by pairing them with glamorous jewelry.
Kilties are those little flaps of fringe that debuted on the golf course and made it to the U.S. thanks to the Duke of Windsor (abdicated King Edward VIII). Now, they strut down the runways on everything from platforms to sneakers, taking gender bending to a whole new level in 2017. Embrace your inner golf pro with metallic and bright color choices.
Especially attractive for over-40 women with short hair, these beanies fem up cold weather outerwear. Try them with a peacoat, puffy jacket, or quilted vest. Accessories on accessories!!
This may be my favorite accessories trend because they are truly works of art. The Valentino bags feature exotic wildlife with exotic price points to match. Everyday women can click “buy” for Tory Burch’s (and other designers’) more affordable options.
Unlike chandelier earrings, clusters sit on the lobe and “lift” the face– who needs plastic surgery? I like them because they can hide a large or tiny earlobe. My clients are all over the Kendra Scott and Badgley Mischka designs that go with just about everything in your wardrobe.
Finally! An alternative for women who carry their weight up top or in their midsection. These are colorful layering options that don’t add volume to your silhouette. Buy them while you can– when they’re gone, you may not see them again for years…
