Look of the Week: White Style Over 50

Look of the Week: White Style Over 50

I’m wearing more white this season than ever before. Of course, I’m also spending more on Clorox this summer, but it’s worth it. It’s been so hot that I’ve had to stay away from my usual black. This sporty look is new for me, and I’m finding it super easy to wear.

I love the classic white canvas shoe this summer. Mine are cheaper than cheap from Target. They get filthy so easily; I’d never invest more than a few bucks in them. I buy them larger than usual and insert cushioned insoles for added comfort. My cork orthotics fit in these too!

white classics for a sporty look

My Metro leggings from Soft Surroundings are perfect for running around. They look like a classic, straight leg jean but have a wide elastic waistband never rolls.

I paired them with my Covered Perfectly blouson top and added my favorite white fedora. I’m ordinarily a medium in Covered Perfectly tops but went down one size in this one. Probably because the draping makes it roomier.

My look of the week sends a sporty, casual message because the fabrics are all cotton and easy care. The white elevates it to polished, sporty and looks just right for sightseeing or shopping locally.

Adding my fedora adds a touch of attitude that only hats can do.

    I too am wearing more white this summer than ever before and loving it. Also, have been seeing that top in Covered Perfectly’s newsletter and wasn’t sure how it would wear. You have sold it girl, so think I may have to get one just like it. Love the turquoise! Neither was I sure about the SS leggings. Showing the crotch in leggings is always a problem for me, but again you make it look perfectly fine. Great blog post!

      Let me know how you like it Libby! I agree about showing the crotch on slim pants, but some work better than others.

    Those shoes are the best. You have to take care of your feet when walking and walking.

      My feet refuse to be uncomfortable any more, Beth. I’ve learned not to push them 🙂

      It’s very comfy. Easy care too. My favorite combo.

    Great look, Jennifer! Great top!

    I love white in the summer, and it’s particularly nice with turquoise! Unfortunately, I’ve been terrible at keeping white clean lately…

      Me too!! That’s why my Clorox bill is so high, Andrea.

    I love white jeans and wear mine into the fall.
    You look so relaxed in these photos…you must give those of us who are camera shy a few pointers!
    Cute shoes too…

      I love my white jeans all year long! The photo trick? Having fun and taking millions to choose from. Plus, my husband said to mention, he’s a genius.

    I’m also wearing a lot of white. I’ve traded my black for navy blue. A lot of different blues have found their way into my wardrobe this year. Blue and white are always a good combo. Love the white sneakers.

      That sounds great, Atonia! I’m loving navy too. Such a fresh alternative to black.

      It’s tough to find white pants that aren’t see through. Good point! I usually like to wear a longer too over them just in case!

    You look so sporty and put together. The fedora is the perfect finishing touch. Think after seeing you in white I am going to wear this colour a little more than I have been.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

      White is great all year round, but this summer I’m wearing more of it than ever before. Try it Heather!

    You know that top I bought from SS that I saw on you? My husband saw me wear it the other day and said “That’s cute as a button on you!” Well, maybe not the look I was going for, but I’ll take it. Bringing it to Montana, in fact! LOL

    • Jennifer
      July 12, 2016 / 8:25 pm

      You’re hilarious, Carol. I saw you in it and would never have described you as a button. Cute, yes! It looked chic on you!! Men and their compliments!!

  13. Hi, you look fab in the turquoise. I’m liking grey this summer. I say summer with gritted teeth as it’s been miserable in the UK. Back to grey, it’s been suitable for a wet summer being not glaringly bright nor winter dark.

      I’m sorry you’re having a wet summer. That really stinks. Here’s hoping you get a sunny August!

      Those orthotics help every time!
