Fashion for women over 40 – highlights of resort 2013 collections

by Sylvia

Few designers design specifically for women over 40. So the best thingkto do is just to cherrypick designs that are suitable for us from all the collections. Here are some of my favorite designs for women over 40 from the recent 2013 resort collections.

BCBG Max Azria

This collection truly gave a resort feel. Wonderful colours and ptterns and flowy silhouettes. Many women over 40 will look gorgeous in these long dresses and I personally don’t mind the long splits for a lovely sunny day. But of course you could always stich those up!


Gucci resort 2013 collection

Gucci’s collection was all about flowers and rustic tones. And if elegance and sophistication are more your thing you will love the neutral classic looks that exude class but also have just that little bit extra!


Balenciaga resort 2013 collection

I love these fun styles from Balenciaga. the playful top at the left, and the elegant silhouette at the right. The look in the middle is great too, although I realise that we will not be wearing that cutout top. But the combination of the brown leather skirt with the bright yellow is fantastic. And I love those booties combined with the A-skirt as well! Perhaps we could wear that top after all. You can easily layer it with something else underneath!

Calvin Klein

There was a lot to love about the Calvin Klein resort 2013 collection. I adored the printed long dresses that reminded me of Prada’s earlier Fall collection. If I hadn’t already bought my own yellow dress I wouldn’t mind wearing this sleek yellow number either. The wide belts on the hips appeal to me too!

We could really rock maxidresses Sylvia….actually almost any style! 🙂 Hope you could drop by my blog too when u got time!



As a matter of fact I bought a maxi dress! It will come with me to Europe!


I like the top left one of BCBG Max Azria and the elegant right one of Balenciaga very much. As I have already spent far too much money on my summer wardrobe, I will just look at these photos and not buy anything.
On your Forum I have uploaded more photos of my summer holiday wardrobe. Not really resort style, but I hope you like them too.


Looking is half the fun! Off to check out your fabulous clothes…..

Love the leather Baleciaga skirt with the yellow top.


Leather will be hot coming season. It’s too hot for Singapore, but otherwise….

I really like the BCBG picks. The prints and vibrant colors appeal to me. You’d look great in them too — I can already visualize you in the middle one. Thanks for this collection of eye-candy.

BCBG has been really good with colours! I could certainly visualize myself and you in these too!


I like all of these styles! My pick would half to be the Gucci collection. I love the flowers and rustic tones.


These used to be my staple colours, but am still more attracted to the colours currently….


Check out my yellow sandals on the Forum… They are definitely Resort Proof.

I like them all but I think Gucci is my favorite.


I like BCBG and Gucci ^_^
