Fashion Over 50: This Week’s Favorites
As you might imagine, I look at a lot of garments to prepare each of my Flattering50 posts. Often, I see great designs at great prices that don’t fall into a particular theme I’m working on. Take, for instance, the Jones New York Long Sleeve Crew Neck, (was $49.00, now $35.99) above for all you animal print lovers. Now through January 23th, JNY is giving an extra 30% off on this top at checkout. I hate to pass a fashion sighting like that by without giving it a mention. So…here are a few of the other garments and footwear I spotted this week that are flattering designs for women over 50 and on sale. But hurry, some of the sales end in the next few days. Details below.
Here are two skirts on sale at Beall's online department store. In my mind, a black lace skirt is like a little black dress. It's indispensable for times when I want to dress up a little bit. I love this one's tiered styling.
Larry Levine Tiered Lace Skirt (was $42, now $29.40)
A textured black skirt like this Evan Picone Hyde Park Metallic Bouclé Skirt (was $64, now $44.80) is a very versatile skirt for work. It works with any color sweater.
I depend on sleeveless shells under suit jackets to keep me cool(ish) when I'm making a presentation for work. Here's a gorgeous one from Jones New York. And if you are shopping right now, you can take advantage of JNY's extra savings.
