When you’re over 40 and your aim is to look young and hip or just age appropriate, there are certain things you can do to look great.
Here are my top 10 tips on how to dress over 40 the right way!
- Dress for your body type, both vertical and horizontal and choose clothes that flatter you and highlight your those parts you love best about your body. Create a nice silhouette.
- Wear skirts at the right length, not too short, not too long. Just below or on top of the knee is a great length for over 40 women.
- Get hip shoes; they can make even a boring outfit look great.
- Wear darker, more fitted jeans.
- Get hip glasses that suit your face.
- Don’t overdo the bling. Contemporary jewelry is perfect for many women over 40.
- Show off your best parts, like your legs, bust or arms, but dress modestly and don’t show too much cleavage.
- Add color to your every-day wardrobe.
- Wear the best possible bra and use shape wear to give your body the right structure. If you find shape wear too uncomfortable, use slips or pants with pipes to hide panty lines and reduce unflattering bulges.
- Have fun dressing and show it in your clothes!
