Grownup Fashion for Spring

Grownup Fashion for Spring

I’ll be the first to admit that after researching the 2018 Spring/Summer trends, a lot of it looked more like costumes or like fashion that only young people would try. If you viewed any of the runway shows online, it would be easy to find them intimidating or make you want to give up on fashion all together. But using my style eyes and with you in mind, I really did see pieces that grownup women could wear with confidence.

Adding a few new things to one’s wardrobe can really make one feel refreshed and rejuvenated. I’d like you to have that experience. That’s why I’ve created this list of what to avoid—the clownish or juvenile looks—and what to try—the pieces better suited for the mature woman.
