Fashion over 40 to me means elegant style with a bit of personality. Sure I love wearing my Chucks and Roots sweatpants too, but when I’m looking to “dress up”, I lean towards a more minimalist, classic look.
Canadian designer Lyse Spenard designs with attitude and femininity in mind – not the latest trends. Her label, BYLYSE, is designed for confident, sophisticated women over 40.
BYLYSE collections have a combination of luxury, comfort, versatility and timelessness. With exclusive prints, innovative textures, rich colours and feminine detailing BYLYSE is made for women of all sizes, including plus-size and tall sizes.
I picked up this chic BYLYSE black vest from Eleven Joseph Fashions.
