What’s Popular and Would You Wear This

Happy Saturday and welcome to the weekend. Grab your favorite cup of java or tea and let’s get started. No one is more shocked than me to realize it’s already August! I’ll be celebrating my 64th birthday in 3 weeks and always wonder how they whip around faster every year!

It’s time for would you wear it. Each Saturday my friend Pam and I share a mannequin we have photographed and ask our readers if they would wear what it’s modeling. Please share your styling ideas in the comments so we can all be inspired.

What do you think? Would you wear all or part of this outfit?

How could you style it to work for your shape and lifestyle? Please keep your comments personal so no one’s feelings get insulted.

July seemed to fly past and I have a feeling the rest of the year will do the same. But when I spotted them putting out the disposable turkey roasting pans at my local Sprouts I was shocked. So early??

Here are the top 5 posts on A Well Styled Life in July

Getting older is a privilege but we needn’t make ourselves look older than we are.

I love this look and have worn it several times since this post but I wear them with these sandals now.

This skirt, tee, and sandals are getting worn to bits this month. It’s just so easy to pull on and cool to wear.

Nordstrom sold out of these jeans in the petite version so I’ve updated the link to Madewell where they’re on sale. I think this is my new favorite outfit. There’s just something about this combo that makes me happy.

This tank and linen pants were the steals of the century for my summer wardrobe and I’m wearing them constantly!

Here are a few weekend sale updates:

Talbots – 30% off new merchandise and 50 + 15% off sale until Sunday

Eileen Fisher – end of season sale with an extra 40% off

J. Jill – an extra 50% off sale merchandise

Soft Surroundings – all sale styles are an extra 30% off with the code AMAZING

Nordstrom – has an amazing clearance going on to clear space for their Pre-Season sale

Banana Republic

I really appreciate your shopping through my links which earns me a tiny commission and helps support my business. I’m unable to earn any commission from the following stores but we love them and I want to keep you in the know about their great sales!

Ann Taylor – up to 60% off almost everything with the code TOGETHER

Loft – 40% off full-price styles with the code GREAT

Now let’s head over and see what Pam’s mannequin is modeling on Over 50 Feeling 40

Thanks for reading and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.

    Late to the party as I’ve had a busy weekend for a change. Hope this isn’t too opinionated but the skirt reminds me of my grade 7 home economics sewing project, style and colour from 1967. That’s a retro look I don’t want to relive. Yellow isn’t a happy shade for me either. I think I would walk right past this mannequin.

    My figure is less of an hourglass and more of a overstuffed pillow these days. The cute little waistline, a-line skirt is impossible for me to pull off anymore. So, it’s not for me.
    Aside from the cut, the cutesy print on the grass green skirt is a little too home-ec project for me.

    I know I am late to the comments – but, here goes – I would not wear this. First because the colors are wrong for me. Second, because my body shape unfortunately no longer favors tucked in shirts, blouses, etc, not even the half tuck look. As to the latter, I have tried to pull it off, but simply cannot do it! I am pretty short waisted and it just doesn’t look right on me. The overall look reminds me also of the patterns in textiles that were popular in the early 70’s (small print in the skirt and the green and gold combination of colors). So, as I have already been there and attempted to do that before (in the 70’s) I don’t really want to revisit this look. I imagine many young women might find it to be a fun look – and to them, I say “have at it!”

    I wouldn’t wear this outfit for several reasons. I don’t like the yellow color, and it looks terrible on me. I love cardigans, but I wear them open over a tank or cami. The skirt reminds me of 70s styles, which I liked then, but not so much now. I do really like the outfit from Talbots you are wearing—cute skirt, white tee, and denim jacket. I love denim jackets and have a number of them, including white, lavender and aqua, as well as blue ones In a variety of styles. But I live in the California valley as you do, and it’s too hot for denim jackets right now!

    The outfit is cute and it makes me happy to look at the bright, sunny colors, but I cannot see wearing it. The yellow color would not suit my skin tone and the skirt print doesn’t seem like professional office attire, which is my main purpose for buying skirts. I like the basic outlines of the outfit and would definitely consider these items with a different color for the sweater and a different print for the skirt.

    Regarding the post about “looks that age you,” I liked the woman in a grey robe with the grey towel wrapped around her head. It is a photo that I find intriguing. She looks comfortable, relaxed, and focused on her lap top. I would like to know more about her and why she was included in your post. Does she represent your readers or yourself?

    I like the colors and the print of the skirt. I can’t wear a buttoned up sweater. I prefer a V neck top or an unbuttoned sweater over another top. I can’t wear skirts with gathers around a waistband. I am a Leo. Today I celebrate another revolution around our sun.

    The sweater color doesn’t work for me. I have a large bust so if I wore a buttoned-up cardigan, I’d need one big enough not to pull across my chest. That would mean going up to a size that didn’t fit my shoulders properly. There was a time when I could wear pleated skirts but that was years ago. I’d wear the green floral print if the skirt came in an a-line or pencil skirt. I always want skirts to hit at a good point on my leg, so when I buy a midi-skirt, I hem it so it hits the bottom of my knee. Maxi-skirts look best if they hit just above my ankle or hit the top of my foot. I have to agree that the outfit as shown has a retro-look.

    I might. I’m just not much for tucking things in anymore. I probably shouldn’t be so hard on myself about my lack of a flat stomach. If the top wasn’t too long I might wear it outside. I actually like the colors. They’re so bright and happy, and we could all use some of that!

    It’s a cheery outfit for someone younger than me. I really appreciate 3/4 length sleeves, which are hard to find sometimes. Also, I like the look of a cardigan worn buttoned up as a top, but I’m never courageous enough to wear one that way. I’d just feel weird doing it. Maybe that’s odd. 😁

    I used to be 64. 🙂 I think the skirt print is cheerful, but I don’t think I would wear it. It’s just this side of the wrong shade of green for me. I like the style of the top, but the yellow is a touch too greenish. It might just be the lighting in the store, but both colors are just not right for me.

    Never have I heard do much snark in the comments as in this one. Ladies, I get it. 4-H is about raising cows, so you think women who suit this skirt type look like cows. Well, that’s very mean girl of you, and not in line with the rules Jennifer set out. Enough, already. This may be how you behaved in high school, but you’re big girls now. Time to grow up.

    • Kay

      4-H has done a lot of good in this world. I don’t think anyone was equating making a skirt with looking like a cow. I just think the print and the simplicity of the skirt reminded people of learning to sew and early sewing projects. I didn’t belong to 4-H, and I knew how to sew before I ever got to high school home ec (thanks, Grandma.) I like the skirt and how it brings back beautiful memories of sitting at my grandmother’s old Singer and making something special for myself.

        With the patience help of my mother, 4H introduced me to sewing, baking, cooking, gardening and many other skills that I am so grateful for today. Yes, there were members who raised livestock and took great pride in showing them at their local fairs. Together, we promoted our motto to “make the best better”. Head, heart, hands and health are the 4H’s.

      C’mon Anon. No one was insulting 4H. We were saying the print and style — likely cotton, easy to sew, interfaced waistand, short back zipper — easy first sewing project. That’s it. Nothing more. No snark intended. Just an observation.

    • katee

      No one was insulting 4H – just the opposite. The skirt looks like the easy, peasy one we all made when we started to sew — cotton, easy waistband, probably a zipper and hook / eyes, the dreaded hand sewn hem. Some of learned to sew from 4H, family members or school classes. After all these years, I still use my home ec sewing knowlege. You should see the great masks I make!

    I am not one for bright colors so this outfit as is would not work for me. I also do not care for the mix of bright yellow and green here. The floral pattern on the skirt is also not one that I like.

    However, the cardigan might work for me if it was unbuttoned a bit at the neckline. I could picture the cardigan over a white t-shirt and paired with dark pants. I’d wear a long metallic necklace to make it look more classic.

    Hope you have a wonderful birthday month, Jennifer!

    I just hit 62 — glad to be in good company with all of the ladies here!!

    Happy early birthday! Celebrate all month long! I wore skirts like this with a button blouse when I was ten years old and for several years after. We could join 4-H when we turned ten, so there was a lot of skirt making. Does anyone remember Stretch and Sew? I was about thirty when I made tees and skirts similar to this. At seventy-three I probably wouldn’t wear it as the skirt would not be flattering to my postmenpausal shape. Hope your husband is doing well

      Yes Donna, I remember and loved “stretch and sew”! I made lots of T-shirt’s!
      The trick to making these skirts was setting in a zipper and finishing with the waistband and button and buttonhole. Try to make all that lay smooth.

    Bright and cheerful! Yellow is not a flattering color near my face and I’m not fond of that neckline but maybe the top couple of buttons could be left unbuttoned to make more of a V neckline? I do like the sleeves and think tucking it in looks fresh, stylish and modern. I like the lines on the skirt but it seems a little long – is that the new style? – but it would be easy to hem. That particular floral looks a little ‘ young, a little ‘cutesy’ so I’d be a little happier with it in a different pattern

  18. Lily
    August 1, 2020 / 9:58 am

    It’s a cheerful outfit, but too bright for me. I didn’t realize the sweater was a cardigan. I didn’t see the buttons on my screen. I do wear fine gauge cardigans. I would unbutton a few buttons and wear with jeans and a jacket. I don’t like skirts.

    No, this is not the look for me at all. I’m not a fan of the colors or the print in the skirt. I tend to be a pear shape, so tucking anything into a more voluminous bottom is not a look I’m ready to do. I am enjoying shorter tops with my pants, however. I think it gives me an updated look without the stark contrast of shape.

  22. Dawn
    August 1, 2020 / 8:58 am

    I like the sweater buttoned but not in the yellow color. I would wear it in navy tucked in wider leg medium wash jeans. The skirt wouldn’t do me any favors, so I would pass on it. I agree the patterned skirt with denim jacket and the ruana with wide leg pants are my favorites for July! You look great and inspired me to buy a ruana!

    I would not wear the skirt. It is the wrong shade of green for me – too much of a blue base – and the pleats would not do me a favor. It would be a nice A-line skirt if not for the pleats. I like the small boho flower print, but it needs a few tweaks as I said. The sweater I would wear, but not buttoned up and tucked into a skirt. It would add too much bulk around my tummie. I like the color and actually own pieces in that shade. I do not like the chartreuse with the cool green skirt. I would prefer something in a warmer tone on the bottom.

    I like the outfit, but because of my fair and cool coloring, I would swap out the sweater for one of the other colors in the skirt. I would carry a different bag and wear a different necklace. In other words, I would change out some items simply to reflect my coloring, tastes, and, ahem!, age.

    By the way, Jennifer, I do wear crew necks. As a pear, my torso is long. My neck is also long. I am tallish. This is an ideal neckline for these reasons.

    This yellow does not suit my coloring, but soft yellow does. I agree that a pendant necklace would suit this top.

  30. Anon
    August 1, 2020 / 7:30 am

    I have a similar style of skirt in black and white, with a small random dot pattern. It suits my pear shape. I reject the idea that it is a failed Home Ec project. Sheesh, we made mostly useless aprons from hand towels and ugly little cushions. A-line skirts below the knee are ideal for pears. Pears have long waists and curvy bottoms. Mini lengths may pull up when we sit. Think about that.

    I find it amusing when people reject other people’s body types. Buy the clothes that suit you. But if all clothing was made for one body type, most of the population would be wandering around naked. You don’t want that, do you?

    The style is classic with a button front cardigan, 3/4 sleeve and slightly longer skirt but the colors are awful for me. I would look to see if this was available in colors suited to me. One thing I’m struggling with right now as I see more tops tucked into pants and skirts is the fact that I’m short waisted and this look doesn’t help me. I’m not sure where to go with this current trend.

    The skirt is a definite no! As others have mentioned, the style reminds me of my junior high home ec project and the colours are much too bold for me. The top is a good basic piece, but the yellow is awfully bright. I might be interested in it in a different colour.

As for the outfit today, I cannot wear that colour of sweater as it makes me look the same. The skirt is the wrong colour as well as the pleats in the tummy area are not for me. I have enough there already. I like you in the ruana and also the pink shirt. Of course the linen pants are perfect for the heat and look great on you. Stay well and safe.

    My first reaction was it’s too bright. But then I realized that it actually made me happy to look at, and perhaps it’s because yellow and green are my alma mater colors from the University of Oregon. I think I would wear this outfit, and I’m pretty sure it would brighten up my day and other peoples as well. The top would be fabulous with white jeans or bluejeans and the skirt could work very nicely with a white sweater or tee.

    I would not wear the featured outfit as displayed. I would prefer the sweater in a navy color and full length sleeves. The sweater would have to wait for much cooler temps! I love the basic green in the skirt but minus the print. That green color contrasts beautifully with navy or white.i just purchased a tank in a similar green color and it goes so well with my navy and denim.

      Yes, to your sewing project memories ! As a young girl, I belonged to a 4-H group and one of our projects was to sew an outfit and then model it at our local fair. The waistband on that skirt does look familiar! Lol

    Yellows and greens don’t suit my colouring so I don’t wear them. The skirt takes me back to my 20’s when I had a waistline, so at 62 I wouldn’t wear it either. The cardigan top I have in various colours and wear with trousers and jeans. Have a lovely weekend.

    Though I do wear cardigan sweaters, seldom wear them as such as prefer open and usually choose a long sleeved version and not 3/4 length. With that said; as it is reading on my monitor as almost lime yellow-green I’m afraid I would pass as would transform my complexion to that of sallow. Whereas though I do like the style of the skirt and daisies are one of my favourite flowers, I feel the pattern is just a tad too young ‘n cutesy for myself.

      I was going to say the same thing. It looks a greenish yellow for me too and although I do wear cardigans, I don’t tuck and always long sleeved. Cute for someone who can wear it though. I just couldn’t make either piece work for me.

    Happy August birthday to you, Jennifer! I turned 64 in March, so I’ve been singing the famous “64” Beatles song ever since! You’ll have to start memorizing those lyrics.
    Although I love color, my colors are softer, cooler, and not as bright, so the outfit would not work for me. I like 3/4 length sleeves but not the high neckline. I prefer skirts either longer or shorter. So, I’d pass on this one. You look great in all of the featured outfits, so it’s no wonder that they were top picks for July! Thanks for your blog.

    This is a cute outfit – bright and cheery. However, I look awful in yellow so would pass on the top. I would wear the skirt with a white tank/blouse. It could also look cute with a navy tee.

    Happy almost birthday! I couldn’t wear that top. The color is too garish for me. The skirt is ok. It’s hard to believe August is here!

    I will also be celebrating my birthday in 3 weeks, on August 21st. Leo – hear me roar!
    As for this outfit, yellow & green are my 2 least favorite colors, so I would not wear these pieces.

    Horrible outfit … the green print skirt would not be flattering on most figure types nor would the top…. not very sophisticated for mature fashion conscience women.
    I am a 68 year old 5 ‘ 4 ” size 8-10 redhead who prefers classic styles.
    Maybe because I live in Australia my taste is a bit different.The more mature women here seem to prefer a more figure flattering style that is classic but on trend.

    Another August birthday here. I’ll be 66 in a few days. How did that happen? LOL.
    I really enjoyed your July posts Jennifer – especially the linen outfits as that’s what I’ve been buying and living in this summer.
    As for today’s outfit – it’s cute, but too bright for my taste. However, I might have tried this on in different colours and a different print, just to see how it looks.
    Have a great weekend.

    Just hit 62! I’m a Leo. Roar. We’ve got two Leos and two Virgos in my original family, so bring on the birthdays. I like this outfit! The lines are very classical. The pieces could serve well in other outfits too. I’ve gotten pretty tan this summer so probably could pull off this top so near my face (I’m a summer). My all time fave outfit on you, Jennifer, is the blue and white skirt and denim jacket outfit.

    Oh No!! I made that skirt in 1970’s home ec class. It should stay there. The print is awful. The sweater is not bad. I like 3/4 sleeves but never wear that color. I would wear it in navy with a skirt or jeans. Happy August 1!

      The print will certainly appeal to plenty of ladies.

    Hi there August girls! I’ll be 73 on August 26 so I am a Virgo. I don’t think today’s outfit would work for me. The colors aren’t right.

    Good morning Jennifer! For some reason I rather like this outfit though the skirt length defies all my regular self rules fir dressing. I generally onky wear skirts to my knee and this skirt hits at my worst possible place on the leg, Yet I like it! I think it has to do with tge colors to brighten my mood!
    My two favorite outfits today are you wearing that short jean jacket and shirt navy/white patterned skirt and you in the pretty ruana and soft beige wide leg pants. Very nice!

    Kind of bright but would wear it to cheer me up! Needs a long necklace. Are you a Leo? I am August 13!
