GUEST POST: SHELLIE from The FABulous Journey

So excited to have my dear friend Shellie from The FABulous Journey
Guest hosting for me today!! Here she is......

I am excited to be guest posting for my sunny little alter ego, Andrea. She’s as blonde as my hair is black, but we are sisters of the smile and I always enjoy seeing her fun take on fashion. We both are also sharing the journey of graduating kids this year and we co-host My Refined Style each month, so we have a lot in common.

Today I am showing you how to wear a bandage skirt over 40.
The bandage skirt is so named because it’s typically worn skin tight like a bandage. However, if I have learned anything about fashion, it’s that you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to clothes.
I like the bandage skirt because it does have a nice stretch, so it’s comfortable to wear. The key to wearing the bandage skirt over 40 is…
• Go up a size (or two) so that it skims your body instead of hugging it.
• Cover the stomach and rear area with a flowing, close-fitting top.

The idea is to adopt the comfortable aspect of the style, while abandoning the cliché night feel often associated with this type of skirt.
I paired my white bandage skirt with a flowing, Jersey tee. Then, I chose two types of shoes that each add a little different feel to the outfit. 


Notice, I also wore a little white tee under the black Jersey tee since the arm holes are quite low. 

I hope you had a fabulous Independence Day celebration. This is a great outfit to beat the summer heat and look super cute doing it! 


xoxo

  2. What a great way to style the skirt! I love the idea of it being stretchy and comfortable, but using it in a way that doesn't look like you're going clubbing ;-)

  17. Good gravy, woman, you look so snazzy. Those yellow tennies are just as spunky as your great hair and warm smile. Great tips for wearing a bandage skirt (and other skirts, too) for the over 40 crowd.
