5 Fashion Tips For Women Over 40

5 Fashion tips for women over 40

As we age, it’s hard to know what to wear. So, today I’m sharing 5 fashion tips for women over forty.

  • Stay away from the junior section!

You shouldn’t dress head to toe “Forever 21″~~or tween clothes for that matter. Even if you have miraculously maintained your skinny figure to fit into juniors sizes, that doesn’t mean you should wear them. Dressing younger than your age can oftentimes make you look even older! The junior department clothes are made for young girls and the quality of the clothes can be poor. Invest in age appropriate, quality clothes.

  • Watch the length of your dresses.

A couple of inches above the knee is as short as you should ideally go. I try to keep mine barely above my knee. In the summertime I might go a couple of inches above my knee as long as I’m wearing a pair of sandals.

  •  Say goodbye to baggy clothes.

Because our bodies are changing we sometimes want to cover up and wear baggy clothes. Baggy clothes are not flattering. Instead, wear tailored and classic pieces like a fitted blazer and nice trousers.

  • Keep the trendy clothes to a minimum.

I love keeping up with the trends but too much at my age can make me look silly (maybe like a blond streak {wink}). Invest in classic clothes and cuts that work for you and your body type. Use accessories to add a trendy look to your wardrobe like bright handbags, big jewelry, scarves and stylish shoes!

  • Don’t wear too-tight trousers or t-shirts.

I think this could be said for any age. I’m not particularly fond of anyone in clothes that are too tight. But if you’re over 40, avoid any trousers or t-shirts which accentuate your bulgy areas. No one likes to see muffin tops around the waist or bulgy areas on our backs. Again wear trousers and shirts that work for your body type.

So what are your thoughts? Has your clothing changed as you’ve gotten older?

Beauty For the Heart~~Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Proverbs 3:13

I know I’ve used this verse before but it’s such a great reminder for us! Outer beauty may fade with age, so if you are more concerned with your outer appearance, you will be unhappy when the wrinkles come (and they will come) and the number on the scale goes up.

True beauty begins with a fear of the Lord. It doesn’t mean we’re scared of Him but that we’re in awe of all the things He has done for us.

That is beauty that will last!

Have a great day!
