Transition into Spring Tips

By on March 27, 2013

A fitted or cinched waist jacket over wide legged trousers can be a flattering look for our mid-life figures.

There are several flattering tips shown here. The white fitted tank top gives you a smooth line beneath the cinched jacket. The V-neckline of the jacket flatters the face and allows space to show off a statement necklace which also draws the eyes up to your face. The pops of color from accessories allows the winter jacket and pants to transition into early spring. At this time of year when you are longing for spring but it is still snowing and twenty-seven degrees you must get creative if you want to stay warm.

The wide legged pants can be worn with nice flats or low wedges to avoid getting high heels caught in the material as you walk. When wearing black and white or shades of gray it is very uplifting to add brighter colors in a tank top which shows at the neckline and or in the accessories you have chosen.

Always balance a fitted top over a more flowing bottom or vice versa, a fitted bottom under a flowing top. If you show cleavage don’t also show legs. Balance sexy with sedate to avoid the dreaded Cougar Effect. A dignified woman never wants to appear she is on the prowl.

Wearing a fitted jacket allows you to have a feminine silhouette while hiding the tummy. Avoid boxy jackets since they add volume and are dated looking. Rather than hiding your tummy they make you look big all over.
