A new trend for the fall getting a lot of buzz is the Minimalist look~and a lot of 50+ are loving it because of its clean lines, soft fabrics and neutral palette. http://www.unefemme.net/2010/08/minimalism-made-simple.html
There is no extra cheese here to put us in the foolish realm!
That being said, I'm not a minimalist gal myself, but I DO like some of the pieces...but I would be adding--more like the suggestions they had in Lucky Mag~ http://www.luckymag.com/style/howto/styling/2010/09/minimalist#slide=6
And as a total rejection of this trend, how about THESE ladies? Gotta love THEIR STYLE!http://advancedstyle.blogspot.com/2010/08/new-york-times-take-on-advanced-style.html
They show a lot us a lot of confidence and FUN!
