It seems that next summer is going to be all about showing off your pins with plenty of designers sending the tiniest of shorts down the catwalk. While Chanel paired jersey hotpants with tights, Etro gave the trend an officewear spin, Saint Laurent and Brandon Maxwell betted on leather and Isabel Marant, Ferretti and Givenchy made a case for the denim cut-off comeback.
The long parade of more than 100 fashion shows for the spring 2020 season has concluded—but we're just getting started. The first order of business is discerning the most impactful trends of the season: from artisanal crochet and graphic polka dots to a look at decades past via disco collars and '60s wallpaper prints, couture feathers, hot pants, bold neons, and many more. See which designers led the pack for each new mode and get in on the looks early by shopping them now. Welcome to what's next.

Cathy Williamson began her blog, The Middle Page, in 2013. She says she has always had a passion for fashion and beautiful things, which is evident as you peruse her posts and “Shop With Me” page. From the photography, to the style choices she makes in her Beauty, Home and Fashion categories, Cathy is someone you’ll want to follow. Her writing makes her feel like a friend. A friend with stellar taste and whose advice you trust. Check out her Chic at Every Age fashion posts, where she partners with other bloggers ranging in age from the 20s to 50s.


About Blog Welcome to Sharing A Journey! As women of a certain age, we know that while our bodies may have different ideas, we are still having fun, enjoying life, and full of dreams. The best part is that now we actually have the tools and wisdom to make them come true. My nest is empty, and I've been exploring and reconnecting to interests, passions and friends.
You could call it the Tarantino effect as numerous designers harked back to the late '60s/early '70s with a free spirited take on their collections. From Alberta Ferretti's retro suede to Fendi's psychedelic touches and Rixo's full-blown recreation of Woodstock, the style icon for SS20 might just be found at the Once Upon A Time In Hollywood ranch.

Much of the advice is okay, but in my opinion the need for advice is greater among younger women. Where I live, most women past 50 look far more stylish than many women in their twenties and thirties. And why do you say that "of course, our bikini days are over now"? I know women in their seventies and even eighties who still look great in a bikini.
Just as yellow reigned supreme on the autumn/winter catwalks, another bright colour was prevalent for the new season with designers across the cities injecting tangerine orange into their collections. Seen in ballgown form at Valentino and Emilia Wickstead, in day dresses at Stella McCartney and Rejina Pyo and in separates at Prada and Ferretti, there is no bolder way to brighten up your SS20 wardrobe.

I had wrinkles around my eyes and mouth and on one cheek (the one I sleep on). I've used Dermalmd cellulite treatment every night for almost 4 weeks and I can see a difference. The wrinkles at my mouth have reduced significantly, as have the ones on my cheek. The ones round the outside of my eyes are less noticeable and the black circles around my eyes are much improved! This serum great and goes on without any greasy feeling or stickiness. Also a little goes a long way. Happy to recommend.
Seems counterintuitive for a woman to put so many restrictions on other women and claim they are being supportive and helpful. Wearing the “right” clothing is about us learning what looks good on our particular bodies (that’s for all ages) not putting into place some social restrictive standard that will continue to put women in a box! Why are we still so bent on telling women what to do? Are we so jealous of the hot 50 year olds in bikinis that we have to use peer pressure tactics in order to compensate for our own insecurities? Come on women! We should be celebrating each other! Can I add, what the heck is wrong with florals???

And just like that disco’s not dead. The wide collar favored by the Studio 54 set made a surprise comeback on the spring 2020 runways. Modernized on coats, jackets, and button-downs at Lanvin, Ferragamo, JW Anderson, and beyond, the look is often shown with contrasting colors to make it really stand out. Because what’s the point of a super collar if you can’t really see it?
Every true fashionista knows that the real clothing magic takes place when you bring in the accessories. Strategically placed, a belt can help you change the contour of a dress or slouchy top; cinch it around the waist to achieve a perfect hourglass look or well above your waist to accentuate your bust and lengthen your legs. Try a brightly colored belt that contrasts with the hue of your other clothing, and then pick up that shade in a matching handbag or hat. VENUS also carries a line of unique fashion jewelry, including earrings, chokers and bracelets, which will help you finish off your look.
