Hi I’m Sylvia
I’m a stylist, color expert and the editor in chief of 40+style.
I started this site in 2011 as friends (and even strangers) were always asking my style advice. Having studied styling, color & design, I help women feel more confident with their own style.
The site struck a nerve and has helped millions of women embrace their unique style.
Looking and feeling good is not just superficial. It helps you feel more confident and more ready to tap into your fullest potential.
When I’m not producing inspiration and article for this site, I’m most likely playing beach volley, traveling to new and exciting places or read a good book!
