This will probably be my outfit on Christmas Day, or the evening of the 23rd when I will actually be celebrating Christmas with my family and exchanging presents. I’m usually freezing in Holland (after becoming so used to the tropical Singapore weather) so my outfit needs to have several layers and be warm and comfortable. These wide legged pants with cream top and blazer will be just that! I will probably wear this with nice long (warm) black boots underneath! On the 25th I will be in Austria skiing and I have no idea yet if we will do anything special in terms of diner etc. All I am hoping now is that there will be lots of snow so my son can learn how to ski!

A drape dress should be in every over 40 woman’s cupboard. Almost no other dress (except for maybe its cousin the wrap dress) is so flattering and so versatile, especially if you have one like this black drape dress that I will model in this post! [click to continue…]
Accessories are your best friend after 40. They can add focus to your top part, highlight your face, camouflage your tummy and in addition can add some much needed color to some very boring outfits. Here is one of my rather boring dresses. The color is so pale that I almost look like I have nothing on! The dress is perfect for hot summer days though, as it’s made of thin cotton, has lots of openings for legs and is allround comfortable. [click to continue…]
December is officially red, white and black month this year at 40+Style. So I really hope that you’re not sick yet of this color combination, because you are going to get a lot more of it this December!
Black and white has always been a favorite of mine and this year it’s absolutely everywhere. Since I feel the need to add color to my wardrobe, I like to splash in some red or blue. As I told you recently in my post on effective sale shopping, I came away with quite a few prints. Most of these can be mixed and matched with one another, so over the coming week(s) you will be seeing some nice combinations in mainly these 3 colors: red, white and black. [click to continue…]
