My favorite fashion and beauty picks from Oprah's favorite things - 11 is my top pick, what's yours? | 40plusstyle.com

Are you still watching Oprah?

It’s not airing where I live and I miss her. I respect Oprah’s opinion and reflections on life and would love to see more of her.

What I did come across is Oprah’s favorite things. Her yearly summary of the best gifts for Christmas and Thanksgiving. I thought it would be fun to pick out some of my personal favorites from this list and I will also share my own personal number 1 recommendation for a gift (suitable for both men and women and you may want to just buy one for yourself!).

1. Tory Sport Women’s Banner Tear Away Track Pants

I think it’s so important to look good in your sport clothes too and these pants are fab. Love the unique buttons at the side. You wear these for sports or casual. here is what Oprah says: “These track pants go with everything: a sweater and boots or heels and a blazer. I’m hooked.”

2. Spanx Active Women’s Shaping Compression Close-Fit Pant Black Pants

Leggings are a great staple to have in your wardrobe and they can do double duty for hiding the belly. I don’t have any personal experience with these ones and don’t know how comfortable these are (some of my other recommendations for leggings are here) but this is what Oprah says: “performance fabric of these Spanx with a double-layer waistband is lighter than air, but they still manage to smooth all over.”

3. Lark & Ro cashmere off-the-shoulder sweaters

When you can cope with chilli shoulders than these sweaters are the way to go. As Oprah says: “Butt? Sure. Stomach? Of course. Thighs? You bet. But I’ve yet to meet a woman who carries her weight in her shoulders. That’s why these off-the-shoulder sweaters flatter almost everyone.”

4. Peepers Sunglasses

Peepers Sunglasses

You already know how important glasses are for your personal style and that should not stop with your readers. If you like the outdoors then these are perfect. Oprah says: “People, these are the glasses! Tinted readers designed for outdoors, they let you see fine print and give your eyes UV400 protection to boot.”

5. Softies Stretch Snuggle Loungers

Softies Stretch Snuggle Loungers

Style shouldn’t stop when you are relaxing at home either and these features are cozy and cute. Oprah: “This tunic’s stretch velour (both inside and out) makes it feel like you’re wearing a cloud. Put it on over leggings for errands, or wear it solo for lounging.”

6. Janis Savitt Double Cobra Bracelets

Janis Savitt Double Cobra Bracelets

I’m loving these cool bracelets which are hip yet go with many outfits. Oprah: “Not sure whether she’d prefer silver or gold? These intertwined bracelets offer the best of both. I wear them with everything.”

7. Butter London All the Jewels

Oprah's favorite things: Butter London All the Jewels

Pretty nails are a great finishing touch and I’m loving all these colors in this box. Now you can easily choose the perfect shade for any look. Oprah says: “I choose Butter London year after year because it just keeps getting better and better. This 45-piece mini treatment and petite nail lacquer collection will be a winner with any woman who loves pretty nails.”

8. Julep Beauty It’s Whipped Limited Edition Lip Mousse Vault

If you are more into lipstick (I never leave the house without it) then this box will be all you need! A perfect shade for every outfit. Oprah says: “I just ordered a bunch of these sets of 25 matte lip shades for every woman I know, including myself. You’re going to want to kiss yourself.”

9. Buffalo Check and Herringbone Stripe Throw

Buffalo Check and Herringbone Stripe Throw
Keeping yourself warm in winter is always a good idea, so you may as well do it in style. Oprah: “Not only do I want to see this cashmere-soft throw on my sofa, but I’d also wrap it around my shoulders on a chilly night.”

10. Neely and Chloe: The Market Tote

Neely and Chloe: The Market Tote

Accessories are so important in your overall style and a good bag is key. This one is both stylish AND functional. Oprah: “I love a big tote. These have one zip and two slip pockets, which come in mighty handy whether you’re on a plane or at the farmers’ market.”

TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller with Free Online Instructional Videos, 2.0 (26-inch)

TriggerPoint GRID Foam Roller with Free Online Instructional Videos, 2.0
Last but not least here is my own personal recommendation. I would first gift this to yourself and then to others. I use this roller every single day.  It greatly helps with keeping your muscles subtle and massages my legs, back and shoulder. I also use it to open up my shoulders. If you’re interested, I can do a demonstration at a future date on how I use it.

This roller also helps with cellulite as it evens out the fascia which will help smooth your legs and upper thighs.

It’s my perfect tool to keep injuries at bay, my back and shoulders in check and my legs smooth. Highly recommended!

Which of these gifts would you like to receive or give?

Hi Sylvia,

Love your fashion picks – I was also hoping the last issue of O would have some more unique finds. I found some of my own to share:

Rimmel Eye Crayons https://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=165786/Scandaleyes-Shadow-Stick/Rimmel/Eye-Shadow (they are shadows; I use them as liners),

Body Shop Orange Vit C Moisturizer
Body Shop Banana Hair Mask

Smith’s Rosebud (Lip) Salve (since 1892)

Montiel Yoga Pants (I tested 12-14 leading brands – these are beyond the pack- they never slip, even an inch!)

All best,

The bracelets are yummy and the velours snuggle tunics too. The rest is not for me. Oh OK, the totes are always great.
