What does this Goldilocks fit actually look like Think slim-cut A-line. Skirts that are too flouncy (i.e. ruffled or pleated minis) can all too easily look very juvenile, and skin-tight pencil skirts or hip-hugging spandex is a bit too sexy for day-to-day. Look for a mini in a somewhat structured fabric that moves away from the hips for that perfect balance between loose and fitted.
Blazers are no longer considered a stiff, stuffy staple designated strictly to the workplace. This sleek collarless blazer will look edgy and sophisticated paired with all your denim shorts, mini skirts, distressed jeans, and leggings (and yes, it'll also be perfect with your slacks and pencil skirts for work). Featuring a cropped, slim silhouette with hidden buttons and a more feminine, collarless design, it's an easy way to make any basic outfit look a little bit more polished.
And it isn't just me. All around, tripping down the pavement in floaty dresses, showing their tans under strappy tops and wearing tottering heels with a blatant disregard for bunions is a whole generation of sexy, confident, born-again forty-somethings.
When I flick through my photo album, I can see myself in my teens: gawky and awkward; in my 20s: passable in high-heeled boots and mini skirts; and in my 30s: juggling motherhood and career, a whole decade feeling, and looking, exhausted. 1e1e36bf2d
