Your Week in Fashion: Working the Trend(s)

Over50Styling!
This week I have several trends that seem to have popped up lately on Polyvore. One is straight legged jeans. Then there is striped cardigans. And there is floral flats. Also we have bowling bags. One that I have been seeing on Polyvore as well on several blogs and in magazines is the maxidress for the winter season. So I've brought them all together here for your week!

First, there is the gray maxidress with the slit up the side, a defined waist and three quarter sleeves. I topped it with a striped cardigan in black, gray and cream. I chose blue floral flats with a bow detail and a checkered bowling bag. I added blue and black earrings to bring some of the blue tone up.

Next, I have a tank top maxidress, again in gray. I think I actually chose all gray maxidresses for this. I topped it with a zipped up cardigan. I chose a bowling bag in a similar stripe pattern. The flats are a black floral design. And I added dark red flower earrings to bring in some of the red from the shoes.

This gray maxidress is of the palest gray. I topped it with sleeveless cardigan in black and white. I chose multicolored floral flats with jewels tones and earrings in a tone to match. Then added a black and blue polka dot bowling bag for more fun.

The color of this dress is a greige more than just gray, so I used both brown and black tones. The floral flats are brown based. The striped poncho is black and cream. The zebra striped bowling bag has a beige tone base as well. For fun, I used multicolored fish earrings.

Here, I've used straight legged jeans, a navy blue chiffon pleated sleeveless blouse and a black and white angora cardigan. The shoes are blue flowers on a white base. And the bowling bag is black and blue. I added fabric earrings in blue, aqua, lime and black for a perk.

Here, I got away from the black cardigan. I used straight legged jeans and a peach and green cardigan over a green chiffon blouse. I added pink, peach and green shoes with jeweled detailing. The Burberry plaid bowling bag adds a bit of punch. And the earrings bring in more floral detailing.

This last one is the best, I think. I have straight legged jeans. Then I have a yellow striped sleeveless blouse under a two toned green striped cardigan. I used red and yellow floral shoes. And added the fabulous multicolored bowling bad to bring it all together. With the earrings, I have yellow dangles and a wonderful ear cuff in yellow and pink on yellow gold.
