Style pick from Ceri Wheeldon
What can we wear to look stylish and fabulous over 50 when it comes to summer occasions like weddings or race meetings ?
Dresses with sleeves seem to be thin on the high street this season, but I have searched to find some that fit the bill, without looking too frumpy.
I shall be sharing my finds over the next couple of weeks – so do check in regularly.
Outfit number one.
I started looking for an outfit for Mother of the Bride – I can see why my friends have resorted to having things custom made! I found it really difficult to find outfits that a) didn’t cost a fortune and b) didn’t look too matronly. I was looking to find something that looked ageless and elegant.
I liked the simplicity of the this Gina Bacconi dress from the Little Black Dress company. The fringing gives this classic style a more contemporary feel. The metallic lace sleeves and overlay give it a lighter , and more luxurious look.
Teamed with simple silver accessories and a grey fascinator it is understated, elegant and chic over 50.
