Andie MacDowell’s trail-blazering look

My first thought on seeing this absolutely gorgeous photo of 61-year-old Andie MacDowell (yep, 61) was, “I’ll have what she’s having”. 

And while that power blazer (and equally knockout pants) may not be the entire reason for the Four Weddings & A Funeral actor’s overall joie de vivre and enviable style vibes, it’s certainly going a long way to help.

What exactly elevates a blazer from ordinary to “power” status? In MacDowell’s case, it’s texture (tweed), a punchy check weave and subtle ’90s notes in the form of structured shoulders and double-breasted design – with added “business” from the flap pockets.

To step out with star appeal equal to MacDowell’s, finish with a pop of peachy lip colour, perfectly manicured tresses and a strong brow look.
