The fab 40's | 9 Ways to Wear an all White Outfit, over 40.

Fake Fabulous | The Fab40's | 9 ways to wear an all white outfit, over 40.

Welcome to the fab 40's.

I am delighted to be part of a group of international bloggers, called The fab 40's.
The purpose of this diverse group is to show how eight (very different) women interpret a specific style.
Each month there is a new theme chosen by one of the group.

Being 40(+) does not mean you have to be dowdy, frumpy, boring or forgettable.
All of these women are in their 40's, and fabulous!

Fake Fabulous | The Fab40's | 9 ways to wear an all white outfit, over 40.

All White

This month the theme was wearing all white.

I have been known to wear white, sometimes!
{Have a peep at my white looks: herehere and here}

But, I tend to become a bit more clumsy when wearing white.
It must be the anticipation of getting messy that makes me more prone to making a mess.
Weird isn't it?

However, today's outfit came together really easily.
Cuffed jeans and a loose shirt.
Simple.
Adding a chanel-style jacket smartened things up a bit.
{see this jacket: here (with dungarees) and here (with yellow)}

I kept my accessories most nude (and pale) to add interest but not take over.
A black and white clutch, and a cute doggy brooch, finished things off nicely.


Do you love the look of an all white outfit but don't know where to start?
Well, fear not!
I have 8 fabulous ladies here, to show you how it can be done.


Our Guest blogger(s)... 

Nicki and Ornella from My O.N.O Lifestyle.

Nicki and Ornella are two thirds of O.N.O. (with their partner, Olga).
The three ladies have a stylish, and colourful, lifestyle blog.
Based in Athens, the blog is filled with sunshine, fashion, decor and cooking.
Did I mention the sunshine?


Nicki (left) and Ornella are stunning in these white outfits.
What better place to showcase such a look then under the bright blue skies of Greece?
I love this shot.
It makes me want to jump on a plane.
{It is drizzling here today...sigh}
Check out their blog for more details, but prepare for location envy!


Sheela from Sheela writes.

Sheela has chosen to add a little pink to her look in the form of some pink pom poms.
I love those shoes!
Jeans and a graphic tee.
Easy and fun.


Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

Ann looks effortlessly cool in this all-white outfit.
It looks great against her skintone, and that backdrop!
Another glamourous look.

Jennie from A pocketful of polka dots.

Jennie is having fun in this tongue-in-cheek outfit.
A simple skirt and slogan tee.
A dash of animal print, and some killer heels, lifts her look from casual to chic.

{Adding gutties and a denim jacket would make this a super-comfortable outfit for everyday}


Diane from Fashion on the fourth floor.

Diane is looking sharp today.
This lady means business!
She is proving that (box-fresh) trainers can work beautifully with a 'suit'...especially if they are pink with a little bit of a shimmer!

This look is another (seemingly) effortless outfit with maximum impact.
I love it.


Mary from Curlybyrdie Chirps

Mary is a woman who always looks feminine, and super-sexy.
Today is no exception.
She is wowing us in her curve hugging dress.
An elegant neckline and modest hem keeps her looking classy.
Simple and sassy!


Veronica from CID Style file

Veronica is our new full-time member, and I am really glad that we have a plus sized blogger joining us.
She is going to be bringing some fierce attitude to the group, and I can't wait!
She has kept her look casual today (after joining us at the last moment).
A classic white shirt, shorts and slip on gutties!
My kind of look.


Over to you...

Would you wear an all-white outfit?
Would you have to add some darker tones, or colour, to make it more "you"?
Please let me know your thoughts by leaving a comment.

Or contact me!
I love hearing from you.

  1. Ooooh...I love my white jeans & skirts, but I rarely wear all white. What a great way to make a statement though!
    I actually love all the looks and really could wear them all easily!
    The dog pin is quite amusing (although your dog doesn't look like that? Or do you have two?)

    1. Ha, No Jodie! This brooch is about as far away from Jake as I could find. This white dog is the Lady and Jake is the tramp! He is such a scruffy boy... I love him to bits :OD XXX

  3. Hi Sam, back from vacation, I had my all white look ready for today. Fun coincidence😉
    Love all the looks, your jacket, quite smart! It is 96 degrees here, so I paired it down. Everyone looks so fresh and summery in white

  5. Your textural nod to Chanel jacket really elevates a very basic jean and shirt to VERY CHIC!!! I also imagine this is perfect for that unpredictable Scotish weather. The jacket also screams versatiliy!!!!
    I'm horribly jealous of the Grecian goddesses WOW!! Did Vogue do their photo shoot???
    Loving the variety of cool ladies in their fresh crisp ivory!

  9. White is perfect for the summer and I always love to wear white in summers. You have shared a great tips here. I can't even imagine that I can wear white in different different styles.

  10. A great line up from all of you ladies here Samantha. I love your cool, underplayed look which relies more on your accessories than the outfit to show your individuality. Do I detect a recent haircut too?

    1. You are right Anna (well spotted!). My actual outfit is quite dull (shirt and jeans...yawn) but a few fun touches dragged it out of a coma, and made it feel more like 'me'.
      Thank you for this comment, it is most appreciated.

  13. wouuu, lovely outfit!, love particularly your necklace and how it matches (in a subtle way) your jacket. And such a cute brooch!.
    You look fabulously cool&comfy, and very inspiring. I'm not a huge fan of white (particularly near my face), but it's looking very interesting these days!!

    1. Thank you Monica. My little bits and bobs (including my doggy brooch) stopped this plain outfit from being too boring. I am glad you like it. White is a hard colour to wear. I don't think many people suit it close to their faces (hence my bright lippy!!).

  14. Hi there Samantha, you chameleon you!

    Despite a colorless theme you still managed to pull in some naturalness to this look. I love how you do that. The incorporation of nude colors was perfect! The shoes, necklace, and jackets perfectly compliment an all white look.

    I love your style Sam!

    Love, Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

  15. I like this, Sam, I really do. As I said in my post, it's a somewhat subdued palette from someone who's generally Little Miss Rainbow but it works. It really does. And, I must say, those muted shades provide the perfect backdrop for your (flaming) crop xoxo

  16. Sam, I absolutely love this outfit! Those shoes have me swooning! And I recently thrifted a tweed blazer that I am now planning to wear with white boyfriend jeans and a white shirt. I hope it looks as amazing as your outfit. I won't wear it until Fall, however, but thank you in advance for the inspiration! So gorgeous!
