Welcome to the fab 40s 9 ways to wear all white

I am delighted to be part of a group of international bloggers, called The fab 40’s.
The purpose of this diverse group is to show how eight (very different) women interpret a specific style.
Each month there is a new theme chosen by one of the group.

Being 40(+) does not mean you have to be dowdy, frumpy, boring or forgettable.
All of these women are in their 40’s, and fabulous!

All White
This month the theme was wearing all white.

I have been known to wear white, sometimes!
{Have a peep at my white looks: here, here and here}

But, I tend to become a bit more clumsy when wearing white.
It must be the anticipation of getting messy that makes me more prone to making a mess.
Weird isn’t it?

However, today’s outfit came together really easily.
Cuffed jeans and a loose shirt.
Adding a chanel-style jacket smartened things up a bit.
{see this jacket: here (with dungarees) and here (with yellow)}

I kept my accessories most nude (and pale) to add interest but not take over.
A black and white clutch, and a cute doggy brooch, finished things off nicely.

Do you love the look of an all white outfit but don’t know where to start?
Well, fear not!
I have 8 fabulous ladies here, to show you how it can be done.

Our Guest blogger(s)…
Nicki and Ornella from My O.N.O Lifestyle.

Nicki and Ornella are two thirds of O.N.O. (with their partner, Olga).
The three ladies have a stylish, and colourful, lifestyle blog.
Based in Athens, the blog is filled with sunshine, fashion, decor and cooking.
Did I mention the sunshine?

What better place to showcase such a look then under the bright blue skies of Greece?
I love this shot.
It makes me want to jump on a plane.
{It is drizzling here today…sigh}
Check out their blog for more details, but prepare for location envy!

Sheela from Sheela writes.

Sheela has chosen to add a little pink to her look in the form of some pink pom poms.
I love those shoes!
Jeans and a graphic tee.
Easy and fun.

Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

Ann looks effortlessly cool in this all-white outfit.
It looks great against her skintone, and that backdrop!
Another glamourous look.

Jennie from A pocketful of polka dots.

Jennie is having fun in this tongue-in-cheek outfit.
A simple skirt and slogan tee.
A dash of animal print, and some killer heels, lifts her look from casual to chic.

{Adding gutties and a denim jacket would make this a super-comfortable outfit for everyday}

Diane from Fashion on the fourth floor.

Diane is looking sharp today.
This lady means business!
She is proving that (box-fresh) trainers canwork beautifully with a ‘suit’…especially if they are pink with a little bit of a shimmer!

This look is another (seemingly) effortless outfit with maximum impact.
I love it.

Mary from Curlybyrdie Chirps

Mary is a woman who always looks feminine, and super-sexy.

Today is no exception.
She is wowing us in her curve hugging dress.
An elegant neckline and modest hem keeps her looking classy.
Simple and sassy!

Veronica from CID Style file

Veronica is our new full-time member, and I am really glad that we have a plus sized blogger joining us.
She is going to be bringing some fierce attitude to the group, and I can’t wait!
She has kept her look casual today (after joining us at the last moment).
A classic white shirt, shorts and slip on gutties!
My kind of look.

Over to you…

Would you wear an all-white outfit?
Would you have to add some darker tones, or colour, to make it more “you”?
