I have certainly had to change my way of thinking as to what suits me clothes wise as I am getting older. Your body shape changes as you get older, and don't I know it!
I have never liked showing my arms, so a I tend to opt for 3/4 length dresses and tops, as I think they look better than a full length sleeve.
My mother always dressed very elegantly, and she loved suits made by Eastex and Jaeger. Timeless pieces which never go out of style.
Now that summer finally appears to be here, I love this Lorraine Kelly dress by
Priced at £31.50 and machine washable.
This pleated wrap maxi dress is made from gorgeous stretch plisse material, and featuring a beautiful over floral print. This dress has a flattering wrap neckline (perfect for me) and knot strap detailing. It is the perfect throw on and go summer staple for all your occasions, team with silver heeled sandals and accessories for a glam evening look or paired
with flat jewelled sandals for a fabulous holiday look.
Wrap around dresses are lovely and flattering to wear, particularly if you are large busted. I love this dress by
Priced at £28.50, it is such a flattering shape.
Also this dress and jacket by Joanna Hope, also by
Reduced to £49.75. I think I may get this for a wedding I am going to soon, maybe with cream court shoes.
I still love my jeans, but for me they have to be boot cut, with maybe skinnier fitting jeans for the evenings.
It is always best to invest in a few timeless pieces such as a white shirt, a wrap around dress as above, a good handbag and classic L K Bennett shoes - lovely!
