Feminine florals and ruffles. Soft suede and plentiful pleats. Lingerie-inspired slip dresses.
There are lots of looks for women of all ages to explore. Let’s take a look:
Here’s a flirty floral dress that’s perfect for spring. Shirt dresses are flattering for their scalloped hem, just a little higher at the side seams. A delicate floral in bold colours is a more sophisticated look than pastels, which can look a little young.
This look combines the ruffles and femininity that prevails in many spring collections. Note the Victorian-like sleeves. This blouse is best suited to a younger woman. On mature women, this might look a little frumpy. The suede skirt is divine and can be worn by women of all ages.
Knife pleats are hot this season, however they create a lot of volume.
Depending on your body type, you may want to take a more conservative approach to pleats, like this Elie Tahari dress.
Mature women should skip the lingerie-inspired slip dresses – they’re strictly for the 20-somethings.
Some tips for spring shopping:
- Know the silhouettes that suit your body.
- Know your style personality. Not a ruffle girl? There are other options in the spring trends.
- Buy quality for items that have staying power. They’re worth the investment.
