I art directed this fun shoot for the July issue of Living Magazine. When brainstorming about what “ageless style” really meant, I realized that I wanted to do a piece on how to dress younger without dressing too young. Dallas stylist Kimber Yank took my vision and pulled clothes that perfectly represented that concept. The talented Dixie Dixon photographed the shoot with her great ability to capture those “lifestyle” moments. And hair and makeup artist, Cheryll Smith, showed how a short hair cut can be young and fun, and kept model Debby’s makeup clean and fresh. Read on for how to translate these trends into an ageless option.
The Trend: JUMPSUITS
While your daughter and her friends may be running around in the popular short-shorts version of the jumpsuit, a full-length wide leg style is not only flattering, but also might be the most comfortable thing you’ll wear all summer.
The Trend: SPORTY
Dress up the athletic-inspired look and work it like the grown up lady you are. While hip Millennials may be donning a mesh jersey top and running shorts, tailored track-striped pants paired with a fitted blazer will have you out the door and looking sporty without breaking a sweat.
The Trends: SHEER LAYERS and FRINGE
Instead of a fringed mini skirt, add an eye-catching fringed bag. Incorporate sheer layers elegantly by wearing a dainty camisole underneath rather than a skimpy bandeau.
The Trend: FIT AND FLAIR DRESSES
This classic silhouette has recently made a huge comeback and when something on-trend looks this good, we say go all in and add several quality pieces to your wardrobe. You’ll thank us in a few years when these great dresses are harder to find.
