About 40+ Style

fashion blog singapore

40+Style offers style ideas, how to dress and beauty information for women over 40.

Our mission is to show you that you can look gorgeous and experiment with styles and fashion at any age. It’s all about having fun with style and fashion! Too often we get too worried about our wrinkled face, heavier bodies or loosening skin. Having fun with hair and makeup, fashion and new styles can help to make you look better, but also feel more confident and happy.

Looking good and being stylish is not so much about money, the figure you have or how old you are. It’s about dressing to your strengths, knowing your body type, and knowing and embracing your unique style.

We hope to help you in your quest to find your own style, dress to your strengths, look fabulous and embrace your age. You can start by reading all the articles on the site, or join our style forum and ask questions.

A great introduction to this site and a way to ignite and understand your style is to do our unique 10 Steps To A More Stylish You style course.

We believe that if you have fun with style and fashion and feel good about yourself and the way you look, you will feel great and so much happier!

Hello! I recently found your site and am enjoying it tremendously.

I love the red dress you’re wearing in the picture in the “About” section of your site. Can you tell me more about it?

Thank you!

Thank you for your kind comment. This is a silk dress from Calvin Klein that I bought 1 year ago, so I don’t think it’s in shops anymore….

I am excited to have found your blog! I will be 40 in January, and was starting to wonder if there were any other ladies out there fashion blogging in my age range. Great job, and thanks for helping to represent those of us who aren’t twenty-somethings anymore — We’ve still got it! ;-)

Sylvia

Great that you found me. Welcome! I look forward to reading your comments to my posts. Off to check out your blog now…

Thank you for commenting to me – I always appreciate that SO much! I love what you said about wanting to help women to embrace their age and their strengths. I am finding it to be a little bit of an adjustment knowing that I’m about to turn 40 (30 didn’t bother me at all, but I was pregnant when I was 30 so my mind was on the little bundle of love growing inside of me :) ) Forty is proving to be a tiny bit harder, esp. because I am starting to see some lines cropping up and such. But, I’ve always said that I wanted to age gracefully, and I intend to do my best to follow through. Thank you for blogging; I will be following you as an inspiration – you look just WONDERFUL!

Being over 40 has its challenges but I have found it a very rewarding age as well. In terms of style I feel I have never looked better and I feel much freer to be creative and try new things.

Forty is nothing! Forget it. I am 55 and it feels great. Kids have left home and all have jobs and futures. I have my health and my husband loves me. Age is just a number. Your health is what you should concentrate on. Lines show you have had a life. Just colour your hair or have fantastic hair cuts and treatments.

Reply

Sylvia

Well said Bridget. I also believe that health is the key. So long as you have that life after 40 is fantastic and you may as well look great at the same time!

Dear Sylvia, I have stumbled on your website and am delighted. I have stopped working, moved from Australia to NZ with my husband and at 49 now need an entirely different wardrobe for my new (wonderful) casual life while still wanting to look smart and a bit trendy. Thank you for sharing your photos and looks. I’ll look forward to more. Ann

I can’t believe my luck in finding you! I was searching for makeup tips for over 40 and found your video and website. This is the website I’ve wanted all along but didn’t even know it. I’ve been poking around the site for an hour and have completely lost track of time. Thank you, Thank you. I’m 45 and a stay home Mom to my one Son. I don’t get out a lot but when I do, I want to look up to date and stylish. So glad you are here.

Hi Sylvia,

Stumbled upon your blog, and I find it very interesting. I’m a 44-year-old Malaysian with a 9 -year-old daughter.

Being an Asian we often pass off as younger than our true age, and most times I don’t dress up like a 40 year old. It’s refreshing to see some of the styles I could try out.

Thanks:)

Reply

Sylvia

Welcome Audrey. It’s great to receive your feedback. You are definitely right that Asian women look younger for much longer than we caucasians. I’m never able to guess the age of any Asian woman! However, I believe that staying youthful comes as much from within as from the outside… I hope you enjoy browsing the site and I look forward to connecting more with you on the site

Hi, I nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blog award because I enjoy your blog so much. If you wish to accept (some do, some don’t, no hurt feelings either way) you write a post where you thank the blogger who nominated you, reveal a few things about yourself and then nominate a handful of bloggers who you like (anywhere from 7-15).

Hi Sylvia, as a Newbie to your site, I’m dipping in and out of your articles – like a child in a Sweet shop ! Its wonderful. Excuse me if you’ve already covered these questions – I haven’t managed to read everything yet. Is Holland a very fashion concious country ? Also, did any one particular country influence your personal style more than the others ? Keep writing – every tip is like gold dust !

Reply

Sylvia

Hi Tonix, Great that you are enjoying the site! Holland is fashion conscious but also very casual. Brands are not so important. A country definitely influences your style and I actually wrote about that here: http://40plusstyle.com/style-in-different-countries/

Hello Sylvia,

You look great and I’m so grateful to have found this site!
I had always been a stylish dresser before children and then I felt the real me disappeared.
Seeing women make the most of themselves for themselves is so uplifting! :’)
Thank you.
