The no-smell gradual tan wonder from Dove

Dove Visible Glow and Summer Revived gradual tan products in a summer background  from Is This Mutton dot com
It's summer, girls, and time to get our legs out. Fortunately the world of faux tan has moved on a bit since my first encounter in the 1970s, when a friend of mine showed me her fake tan. Reader, she was as orange as an Oompa Loompa.

Dressing up black cropped trousers

In part two of a special on how older women can wear summer 2018's cropped and wide trousers, Is This Mutton dresses up a pair of black trousers with a red top and pearls.
Last week in part one of my Cropped and Wide Trousers special, I hopefully showed that this scary type of pant can be surprisingly flattering. This week I'm wearing a more conservative pair of trousers which could easily be worn to work and also dressed up for evenings.

Wide and cropped trousers

How easy is it for an older woman to wear this summer's wide and cropped culottes and trousers? Over-45s blog Is This Mutton? tries a couple of pairs for size.
Now there's a line to strike fear into most older women's hearts:  wide cropped trousers. Last year we had ankle grazers but they were mostly straight or narrow legged.  This year, "what's trending" on Asos tells me that wide, cropped trousers/ culottes are going to be very big this summer. In more ways than one.
