About 40+ Style
Welcome to 40+ Style! A style, fashion and beauty site especially 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.
A little bit more about me
My name is Sylvia van de Logt and I’m the founder and editor in chief of 40+Style.
I started this site in 2011 as I felt there was not enough style, fashion and beautify information for women over 40 like myself. It has always been a dream of mine to start my own online magazine and since I had a keen interest in style and fashion, this seemed like the most logical topic.
I felt I had a lot to share as I restyled myself from rather frumpy and casual to someone who is confident and comfortable with my personal style.
I’m now a happy 50 plusser and currently live in Singapore. Although originally from The Netherlands, I have lived all over the world: Italy, South Africa, England, Japan, China and Australia. I have studied both international marketing, fashion styling and colour and has worked in various professional roles related to fashion.
40+ Style is my passion project and myvfull-time job.
It’s my mission to inspire as many 40+ women just like you from as possible from around the world and help you look and feel beautiful both inside and out.
