57-year old petite Shauna lives in Salt Lake City and documents her outfits on her blog, Chic Over 50. Shauna sprinkles her Sporty Luxe and playful, casual outfits with feminine touches and bold colour. She adores hats, quirky design details and is a huge believer in the power of accessories. Our blogger is not afraid to try new things and make them her own. While her spunky short silver ‘do, punchy lipstick and big earrings continue to be the eye-catching trademarks of her style.
The unexpected colour combo is what first caught my eye. Shauna paired skinny warm-toned cargo pants with a cool-toned ink blue shirt. The dressy silk shirt and polished lace-up footwear create a fun juxtaposition against the casual bottoms. Semi-tucking the shirt lengthens the leg line and adds a playful touch. Our blogger’s sassy short ‘do and punchy pink lipstick add in a lot of extra pizzazz. A single silver bangle, ring, watch and oversized hoop earrings are the polished finishing touches.
Shauna wears athleisure and Sporty Luxe looks like it’s nobody’s business. Here, she’s sporting black woven joggers with eye-catching gold zippers – it’s all about the details! She’s tucked in a long-sleeved cream and black striped top, which helps create a long lean line when you’re petite. The top’s soft fabric and the relaxed vibe of the entire outfit are great for casual days. Iconic black and white Adidas sneakers complement the colour palette. Our blogger “Shauna-fies” the look with statement hoop earrings and her trademark bright lipstick. Her Panama hat in natural colours provides additional Tomboy flair.
The light grey boiled wool dress with dropped waist and metallic floral embroidery takes centre stage. The fun silhouette fits right into Shauna’s casual Sporty Luxe style persona, while the white button-down shirt dresses up the look. Layering a long-sleeved shirt under a sleeveless dress is a great way to transition seasons. The metallic studs on the shirt collar tie in perfectly with the embroidery on the dress. White polka dot ankle socks and quirky yellow pumps make this a fashion-forward look and show that Shauna has a fantastic eye for colour. The yellow brings the light grey to life, while the socks intensify the crispness of the white throughout the outfit. The all-over colour palette also amps up the impact of our blogger’s silver ‘do.
A casual Summer look consisting of on-trend pieces. The high-rise cropped skinny jeans with released hem fit Shauna perfectly. The bold-striped cropped top with flattering diagonal sleeves is a great length to wear with high-rise bottoms. An empire waist silhouette and linen blend fabric are breezy for warmer temps. Oversized white tassel earrings and blue suede ankle strap espadrille wedge sandals add to the Summer-y vibe. Keeping the footwear low-contrast to the jeans lengthens the leg line. Bright orangey-red lipstick echoes the red detailing on the top.
A cheeky denim jacket is a marvelous way to casualize a dressy frock. Shauna is sporting a fab little black dress with intricate lace detailing. Opting for a tailored, short jacket creates easy-going spunk. Buttoning up the jacket streamlines the look and emphasizes the elegant fit-and-flare style of the dress. A dark wash denim jacket keeps things polished. Popping the collar of the dress and wearing the pearl necklace over the jacket is a creative way to showcase your jewellery. Plus, the white adds extra feminine crispness to the dark outfit and works fantastically with Shauna’s light hair. Our blogger uses semi-opaque hose to create a tonal look. Kicky red footwear is a festive and glamorous finishing touch.
What a great example of a Boho Lite look. The relaxed-fit fringed hem jeans make up the boho part of this outfit, and are quite the statement on their own. Playful and flirty! The look becomes extra eye-catching by adding a pointelle batwing-sleeved sweater in an electric shade of blue. Layering a white top under the sweater makes the colour pop even more. Cognac peep-toe sandals and a mini crossbody with cognac strap are another nod back to the Boho trend. Extra large sequin petal earrings in an equally vibrant shade of blue and white fingernail polish tie the look together. And, as always, Shauna’s tomboy silver ‘do and bright lippie bring extra spunk.
