Tuesdays Style After 30 - How To Wear Pink and Look Strong

Pink is one of those iffy colors, especially after 40.  You don't want to look like you're trying too hard to look 26.  You definitely don't want to look like the soft squishy grandmother that smells like sweet powder and wears pink.  So I'm showing some summer style's that rock after 30, 40 and even 50.  I'm loving this paisley top!!!  No little girl or old grandma here.

Who said you can't wear a white tee shirt anymore.  This form fitting tee, ruched at the side is totally feminine and puts a little class into a casual style.  It gives you some shape to your body which is something that takes a more discerning eye as you age mature.  If it's cool or a more profession atmosphere the jacket works perfectly.  I love the bold scarf for a punch of color and the shoes are just the right pink, not to girly and a little bit sassy.

You might have to unroll the hem of these shorts to make it work but this blouse says you can where me anywhere and still be comfortable in the hot summer.  Those pearls, sandals and glasses make you look like a million bucks!

You can never go wrong with a simple sheath dress.  It's always a classic.  If  your petite like I am, a sheath is a must for your wardrobe.  It lengthens your silhouette.  When I was young it gave me a more mature look other dresses always made me look so young, but yet it isn't matronly so it's the perfect dress for midlife too.

Are you looking for a dress to wear to that outdoor wedding?  This is it!  I just hope you don't take all eyes off the bride.  This dress is everything chic is supposed to be.  The cinched/ruched waistline is really going to show your curves in just the right places and help camouflage the ones you need to hide.  Indoor wedding, no problem.  Got you covered with this sparkly white/silver jacket.  Sparkly accessories mixed with summer sandals and a textured clutch keep you looking elegant even in the summertime.

So what do you think?  Can you wear pink at any age?  Do you have pink in your wardrobe?  No wimpy pink here.  I really need a gift card shopping spree!!

Let me know what you're wanting in your closet.  I love to hear from you.

  1. Love the ensembles. I especially love the ruched tee shirt and the sheath. I have never been imagined to be petite but I still loved the sheath.
