Here are 3 shoulder-baring-styles for women 40 and beyond who ae fashion minded and want a practical, modest, age appropriate way to sport an off-the-shoulder silhouette.
I decided to share 3 shoulder-baring styles for women 40 and beyond for 3 reasons. First, I believe we older gals can follow trends if we style them appropriately. Second, unlike most trends, the shoulder-baring look is actually quite flattering. Third, even though the calendar says Fall, it is hot as stinkin’ blazes right now, and nobody I know is thinking about sporting sweaters & boots right now.
Below are 3 of my fave shoulder-baring tops (all under $50~hooray) and how I like to style them. If anything catches your eye, you can scroll through the “shop the post” link under each look to find out where to buy individual items.
Strapless Bra: For any shoulder-baring top, you’ll need a strapless bra or bandeau. Trust me on this one: I’ve tried EVERY strapless known to (wo)man, and this one is the best.
Look 1: One Shoulder White Top
This simple one shoulder white top literally goes with anything. Skinny jeans to flare jeans. Dressy shorts to frayed denim shorts. Skirts. Dress pants. Pointy toe heels to platforms to flats. Because it doesn’t cover the tush, I don’t wear this with leggings.
Side Note: Kindly ignore the unbagged grass in the photo below. #keepingitreal #nopretense #ourlawniscurrentlynotsavvy

Look 2: Off-the-Shoulder White Blouse
Not only is this fab Free People blouse pictured below both feminine and flirty; it also covers the tush AND is currently on sale!
Camo is trending right now, and these leggings are actually from last year (and no longer available). I link to similar ones below.
The pendant is custom designed by two sweet & savvy friends from The Napping Nest. Click on link to read their story and order your own design.
For a similar long pendant look, check out the Kendra Scott (link below) that is gold/rhodium and goes with any gold or silver earrings you have on hand. I am a hoop girl, so I link to my faves below.

Look 3: Off-the-Shoulder Grey Tunic
This is one of my fave Nordstrom Rack steals (less than $25), and it is so versatile. It is a tush-covering tunic with a flattering handkerchief hem. The grey has violet undertones, and the fabric is soft and silky.
I love Nordstrom Rack and shop the online store as much as I visit the one five miles down the street. Shipping is free (for purchases over $100) and returns are easy by mail or at any Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack.
The Shoes: I get asked about these Vince Merett snakeskin shoes every time I wear them, and sadly, they are no longer available. I link to two similar styles below, and the Matisse snakeskins are as cute or cuter than the Vince (and almost halft the price).

Thanks to all you savvy friends who took time to take a peek into my closet:-) I’d LOVE to know what it is YOUR closet, so feel free to share your faves in the comments of the post. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
