Fashion for Middle Aged Women
Fashion for middle aged women doesn’t have to be frumpy. It doesn’t have to scream “middle aged,” either. Women of any age can look pulled together, sexy, and professional; fashion for women over 40 has come a long way. It’s all about incorporating select trends into a wardrobe that you’ve carefully created with items that fit you so well they seem to have been made with your body in mind.
Stay Age Appropriate
One of the common concerns for middle aged women seems to be, “Will I look like I’m trying to be too young in this?” when they’re tempted to buy something trendy. The answer is quite often a resounding “No.” Women of all ages like to feel pretty and feminine, and there’s no need to drastically limit your style because of your age. Most women beyond their 20s should probably skip the tiny miniskirts and cropped tops, but you don’t have to wear unflattering skirt lengths or shapeless shirts simply because you think you’re “too old” to wear certain styles.
Go for the Minimalist look
Less is more when it comes to fashion for women over 40. Choose pieces that have fewer embellishments and cleaner lines, you’ll be able to get more wear out of them, pair them with more (trendy) things, and accessorize with your favorite jewelry pieces. They’ll also make your look more polished than some of the busier pieces out there.
Choose Timeless Classics
There’s a way to incorporate trends into fashion for middle aged women, but it takes having some staple, well-tailored classic pieces in your wardrobe. Keeping your trendy picks grounded in a sea of simple styles will keep you from falling into the trap of looking as if you’re trying to dress younger than you are.
“Staying age appropriate when it comes to fashion for middle aged women means wearing clothing that fits, flatters, and reflects your unique sense of style. While you may want to avoid overly revealing clothing, there are plenty of exciting and interesting pieces you can incorporate into your wardrobe” commented Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
