style at every age fashion in your 40s

The conversation around fashion in your 40s is often centered around the topic of age-appropriateness and what not to wear, and we just don’t buy it. By now, you have a well-developed sense of self—including how you choose to present yourself to the world. So throw out the so-called rulebook and instead, explore our favorite ways to add a punch of personality to your signature look.

 

Fashion in Your 40s: Bright Blouse

1. Bright Blouses

Celebrate your hard-earned confidence by experimenting with vibrant shades. Do you typically stick to neutrals but love a red lip? Wear that red on your non-proverbial sleeve! Is there a color you were told you should never wear at some point in your life? Forget those old-school haters, and give it a whirl.

 

Fashion in Your 40s: Fashion-Forward Pant

2. A Fashion-Forward Pant

Tops tend to get all the attention when it comes to statement styles, but a modern pant silhouette adds an instant air of style authority to any look. Play with proportion by tucking a slim button-down into luxe relaxed joggers, or wear a sheer flowy tunic over a tank and cropped wide-leg pants.

 

Fashion in Your 40s: Whimsical Print

3. Whimsical Prints

If your well-honed look involves a closet full of solids, let this serve as a reminder to not take your style too seriously. A small dose of print can have a huge impact, adding texture and depth to any outfit. Reach for bold botanicals or classic leopard—even a subtle stripe can transform a look.

 

Fashion in Your 40s: Untraditional Blazer

4. An Untraditional Blazer

There’s a fine line between wearing what you know and love and falling into a style rut. Step outside your style box and experiment with a blazer in a new shape, material, or print for the office. We’re currently loving sleek tuxedo silhouettes, checked prints, and stretch-knit fabrics that add a casual-cool touch.

 

Fashion at Every Age: Perfect-Fit Denim

Fashion at Every Age: Perfect-Fit Denim

No matter how many times you’ve been around the sun, there are a few essentials that every woman needs in her style arsenal. After all, age is just a number. High-quality denim is virtually indestructible, so a timeless pair (or two) that fits your particular shape perfectly warrants a splurge. Feeling like a million bucks is well worth the minor investment.
