Let’s talk about wearing short dresses after 40.
My favorite dress or skirt length is just below the knee cap. This length is the most flattering and proportional for my figure. However, I don’t like the idea of closing myself off to other options; especially when I find something fun on sale!
I found this cute dress on sale at Express (similar dress here), but it was considerably shorter than I prefer to wear. So, I added leggings to make a cute outfit.
The thin yellow belt lends a pop of color to this monochromatic scheme. I could also have layered some slim black pants underneath…then, I would have added a heavier belt to balance the look.
I wore a black half-camisole underneath to provide better coverage at the top and around the arm holes. This helps eliminate “sleavage” as my friend Jennifer, from A Well Styled Life likes to call it!
I chose a pair of heavy strapped sandals to finish off the look.
Another My Refined Style Fashion Over 40 Linkup is just around the corner! It will go live at 12:00am on Thursday morning. I can’t wait to see what all of my fashionista friends have in store for us this month.
