What would be appropriate attire for a middle-aged woman to wear to relative's wedding?

Q. My aunt told me my cousin is engaged and the wedding will likely be late summer or early autumn. I assume I will be invited, but I don't know if it will be formal or casual. I don't own any really "dress-up" clothes. The best thing I have right now is a pair of jeans with no holes or tears and a scrub-type top with butterflies on it. Getting me to dress-up is like getting Peppermint Patty to wear a dress. Any suggestions?

A. Arg - Middle age - That's me and it's tough to go shopping, isn't it? You don't want to wear something too young and trendy and end up looking like a "Real Housewife", yet you don't want to look like an old lady wearing Sag Harbor, either. You also want to wear something that you would wear again. Every woman should have a few good staples in her wardrobe. For example, a little black dress. Once you have one, you'll find yourself wearing it all the time.

You can't go wrong with the LBD:

OR something pretty like this:

IF you can't hang with the dress idea, consider a pretty pants suit with a colorful top:

What types of footwear looks well with an abaya in a school setting?
Q. For those who're wondering: The abaya is a huge long length dress like a cloak that covers the whole body including arms and legs. They are made out of silk/cotton and worn over Muslim womens' normal dresses.

Now sneakers/runnign shoes don't look at all good with an abaya, so what would do?

A. Hi :)

with an abaya, focus on the color.. If your Abaya is black you can wear black shoes or funky colors that match the scarf, the purse and your accessories

as to what shoes.. during the summer/ warm days :

- Flats (so cute with the abaya)

- Flip flops.. just chose a decent model, I hate it when girls come to the university with beach slippers and call that flip flops.. or any flat open sandals..
Go crazy with the nail polish color and match to the accessories ;) . Revlon and may other brands offer those polishes that you put on and take off by peeling them. Quick and easy
- If you're not afraid of high heels, they can be very feminine especially with a black abaya.. They take it to a hole new level.
- Sneakers are fine but I I don't like them on abaya. I think they can do with a funky outfit, like a colored scarf, and a long sweater and pants (in a neutral color then you match the sneakers to the scarf for example.

For cold days, it gets harder because the abaya is especially designed for the desert and hot weather.. If you insist on wearing the abaya, chose a thick material to match the winter shoes. Wear them with ankle boots (very trendy this fall)

All the best honey ;) XoxO
