Fashion Tips for 40 Plus Women

One of the greatest mistakes that women make in their 40s is not rethinking their wardrobe. It is true that there are some women who are already 40 years old but do not look like a day over 30. This does not mean though that they should not dress their age. A woman who dresses her age will always look classy and elegant wherever she goes as long as she is also wearing something appropriate for the occasion she would be going to. Here are some tips to follow:

  • Rethink Your Wardrobe. Disregard items that you know you will not be able to wear anymore because they are already too short or too loud for your age.
  • Accept That Your Body Has Changed. Women who are in their 40s tend to be more curvy and would put on some weight in some places. Working out will keep your body toned but things that might have looked great on you 10 years ago might not look the same now. Accept that this happens once you age.
  • Avoid Skin Revealing Clothing. Revealing skin at this age is not appropriate anymore. Leave clothes like this to the younger generation.

Remember that acceptance is always the key to feel more confident.

Make sure that the outfits that you will pick will fit well. This means that you should not buy things that are too loose or outfits that are too snug. The right size will also make your body look better.

Do not be afraid to embrace color. It does not mean that just because you are plus sized, you would have to wear black all the time. Embrace color and you will probably like it more.

Be confident. This is your greatest accessory.

With these tips, dressing up for summer will surely be a breeze.

Basic items to build your wardrobe (for beginners)

I stumbled upon an article about power dressing and thought the list could be useful one day (especially for my daughter who will be hunting for a job a few months from now).

Build your wardrobe with the following basic items:

1. Black jacket or a well-fitting blazer

2. Black pants (not pleated)

3. Black skirt (slightly above or grazing the knee)

4. Inner tops (white/khaki/gray/light blue shirt that can be worn with pants or skirt). You can also invest on some tank tops, knit tops, striped baby t-shirts

5. Accessories  ( beads, dainty chokers, silver jewelry, pearls)

6. Black heeled loafers

7. Black boxy nylon bag (not to0 big but just roomy enough to store your essentials)

8. Makeup or Kikay kit (may contain eyebrow pencil, nude or brown lipstick, eye curler and mascara, face powder)

Buy the items that you need on a buy-when-can-afford basis. They need not be expensive. You can always look for cheaper but quality pieces in local shops.
