Fashionable At Forty
Forty is huge age wise, a decade before the golden jubilee. Many times, it is expected that women in this age group dress in a certain way; not because their body types are no longer flattering but because you’re “40+”.
Any woman in this age bracket, especially one who’s married would most likely give into all the external pressures that come with looking age appropriate each time they dress up.
In this section, let’s look at some trends and how we can translate those into practical and stylish outfits for women over 40.
Black dress: Every woman after dropping their little black dress would automatically begin the search for the appropriate black dress that fits every outing.
Prints: Prints are very much in season. From shift dresses, to tops skirts and even pants, there’s something for everyone in every age group. Knowing your body type further helps in determining which of these are appropriate for you in many cases.
Jeans: A staple in every wardrobe. The right pair of jeans would always leave heads turning, be it boot-cut, straight cut or the likes as these are mostly seen befitting for the age range.
Statement accessories: You always want to make a statement with your accessories. Necklaces are most often the common choice for this. Something visible and easily appreciated without loss of initial focus on whatever else.
Loose fit: Could be kimonos, kaftans or just some extra loose sleeveless dress and you’re officially cool, timeless and ageless, so why not embrace it too?
