Who says that getting older is a bad thing? Yes, it has its downsides for sure, but there is so much you gain along the way. You finally get some free time to pursue your hobbies, and time and money to do so. Since you are free to be who you are, why not be glamorous and stylish every day?
By being glamorous, we don’t mean wearing heavy jewellery, silk shirts, and stiletto heels every day, but simply spicing up your ordinary outfit so that it reflects your inner glow.
More and more women over 40 tend to wear dark colors, but they shouldn’t. Yes, black makes everyone look thinner, and it is an elegant color, but that is not the reason to wear black all day, every day. Get a couple of well-fitted (but not tight) T-shirts and tank tops to wear underneath blazers and cardigans and don’t be afraid to add more pink, yellow and red to your life. And if you want to go all out, get some stylish playsuits from Australia, they are guaranteed to lift your mood and get some heads turning.
If you don’t want to wear colorful pants or skirts, try adding a colorful scarf, bag, or shoes to your outfit instead. You can also wear bright red lipstick and add a bit of discreet, but effective eye shadow to accentuate your eyes.
The art of hiding and showing
It is understandable that you want to hide the things you are not very pleased with, but that doesn’t mean that you should be going around dressed in turtlenecks and long pants. Accentuate the traits you are proud of: wear bold metallic details, and leggings to show off your shapely legs. However, if you don’t like the idea of showing too much wear a long tunic, and don’t be afraid to wear jeans.
Add a stylish scarf which will hide your neck and draw attention to your face. Don’t be afraid to wear belts to point out your waist, and put on a pair of long, flowy pants with a nice fitting shirt. Complete the look with a trendy bag and a pair of comfortable, yet elegant flats.
Great accessories save the day
Women of a certain age make mistakes when it comes to jewelry: they either wear nothing or they wear too much. Wearing your entire jewelry collection is neither wise nor stylish, even if you do own real pearls and gems. Who says that modern jewelry cannot make you look glamorous, or that it has been made for younger generations only? Trendy statement pieces will make you look younger and go great with more basic clothes. Pieces from trendy Target, fashionable Forever 21, and stylish Mango and Zara will allow you to get incredible accessories for reasonable prices, which will make you look (and feel) amazing.
Skirts are your friends
You probably have a ton of floor length A-line skirts in your wardrobe. Get rid of them straightaway! Throw them out or take them to a tailor. Don’t hesitate to show off your legs, wear more midi skirts and combine them with shoes which have a slight, yet comfortable heel. Straight line skirts look great too, so don’t shy away from them.
Style recognizes neither age nor gender: just look at Sophia Loren, Jack Foley, Valerie Pain, or Alessandro Manfredini. Fashion industry has finally turned its eye to people over 40 and they are recruiting more mature men and women from all over the world to model clothes, shoes, accessories, do photo-shoots and rule the runway. This would not be happening if these people were not incredibly stylish and elegant and, what’s more, they rock the glamorous look effortlessly. Why would you be any different from them? Be brave, step out of your comfort zone, and let your inner glow be seen by everyone, day after day.
