Refresh your style

After her sixth bout with ovarian cancer, Diann Nelson, 61, of Fuquay-Varina, appreciates the body that has brought her this far. She wants figure-flattering, age-appropriate clothes.

This pale teal combo doesn't stand up to Diann's silvery hair or coloring. She's 4-foot-11, and the cropped pants shorten her leg line.

A vibrant blouse with feminine details and dark denim stretch jeans showcase Diann's womanly curves. Patterned wedges add height and a sense of fun, combined with bold jewelry and her own purse.

A body-conscious dress with flowy fabric and a feminine cardigan, peep-toe slingbacks and colorful necklace are age appropriate. She's ready for a casual or dressy occasion.

The clothes, purses and accessories -- more than $400 worth -- went home with Diann, courtesy of Lane Bryant. Diann was thrilled: "This just made my day! I feel so lucky!"
