A Word To The Wise

As we approach the incredible mid-life milestones, it’s time to ditch once and for all, society’s outdated notions of “dressing our age” and embrace our unique sense of style.

Let’s break free from those stereotypes and build a wardrobe that showcases our confidence, sophistication, and undeniable sexiness.

I’ve put together some tried-and-true fashion tips to help you navigate your 40s-plus, with flair:

1.) Denim Delights:

  • Embrace jeans that flatter your figure: Look for high-rise styles that provide support and a streamlined silhouette.
  • Experiment with different cuts: Boyfriend jeans, wide-leg trousers, and cropped styles can add variety to your denim collection.
  • Opt for darker washes: Dark denim exudes elegance and pairs well with both casual and dressier outfits.
  • Pair with loafers, ankle boots, high boots, mukluks, and Chelsea boots.

2.) Prints and Patterns:

  • Defy the notion that certain prints are age-restricted: Embrace bold and vibrant patterns, including floral prints, to express your individuality.
  • Mix and match with solids: Pair patterned pieces with solid-colored separates to create balanced and chic looks.
  • Play with scale: Experiment with various sizes of prints, from small and delicate to large and eye-catching, to find what suits your personal style.
  • Pair patterns with solid-colored shoes and solid clothes, when appropriate, with printed shoes.

3.) Accessorize with Confidence:

  • Make a statement with accessories: Bold necklaces, oversized sunglasses, and chunky bracelets can instantly elevate any outfit.
  • Accentuate your waist: Add personality with stylish belts that cinch your waist and create a flattering silhouette.
  • Don’t shy away from hats: Hats are a fabulous way to add flair and personality to your look, while also protecting your skin from the sun.
  • Never underestimate the “polish and umph” a good shoe can add to any outfit.

4.) Boot Up in Style:

  • Invest in timeless boots: Classic ankle boots and knee-high leather boots are versatile options that exude sophistication.
  • Explore different textures and styles: Consider suede, animal prints, or metallic finishes to add a touch of excitement to your footwear collection.
  • Pay attention to the heel height: Opt for comfortable yet stylish heels, such as block heels or stacked heels, that provide both support and elegance.

5.) Defying Stereotypes:

  • Dress for yourself, not for others: Prioritize your comfort and personal style over societal expectations.
  • Embrace your femininity: Choose pieces that highlight your curves and express your unique personality.
  • Be confident in your choices: Remember that fashion knows no age limit, and you have the power to redefine what it means to “dress your age.”

As we navigate our 40s and beyond, let’s smash those stereotypes about what it means to “dress your age” and embrace our individuality with confidence.

Build a wardrobe that celebrates your personal style, experiment with different trends, and always prioritize comfort.

Remember, fashion is an expression of who we are, and though trends come and go, it’s never too late to say:

“Ok- fundamentally- this is who I am, and this is how the tone of my fashion style is going to be;” whether that’s casual, boho, sophisticated, punk, rocker, preppy, or whatever style YOU LOVE.

From mid-life onward, you’re bound to have your most stylish and empowering decades yet!
