Be Fashion Chic Over Forty

Aug 18, 2007
Many women who reach their 40s seem not to care anymore about how they look. Many seem to be stuck with their old fashion styles and make-up that long need to be updated. As they say life begins at forty and in fairness there are a number of women in their 40s who still manage to look their shining best and are strikingly beautiful.

Even if you are in your 40s you can still manage to look sexy and vibrant. All it takes is finding out what works best for your current shape and figure and knowing what features and assets you have that could flatter you.

It is indeed very challenging for most women who reach this age because they get confused on how to adapt themselves to the occurring changes in the fashion world without being labeled as "trying too hard to in keeping up with the younger generation." While you don't have to go through a major style overhaul by imitating the look of women in their 20s, all it takes would be acquiring a much fresher look that you are comfortable and confident in. You adapt to trends but only to those that work for you. A quick way to update a look would be an update on bags and shoes.

While dressing up younger is perfectly fine as long as you look great in them, don't dress way too young for your age as this will make you look older instead. Work with clothes that give you shape and try to avoid the baggy and loose fit types. Experiment with colors to find out what works best with your hair, your eyes and your skin tone. You don't have to be in the "fad" You can always develop your own signature look while incorporating current trends that work for your age.

There are beauty fixes that women in their 40s can undertake. It is a fact that age can take its toll on a woman's look and here are a few tips to help hide some flaws and give you an age defying look.

For women who are worried about their wrinkled necks, a great way to cover the area and instead draw attention towards the face would be to wear a turtleneck top or clothes with turn up collars.

A jacket can help cover a thick middle and can give you shape.

If your problem is your thinning hair, get a fresh look by getting a haircut. Shorter hair can make you look younger and there are many styling products that can work with your chosen hairstyle.

The legs and your shoulders are usually the slowest part of your body to age. This is not trying to suggest that you wear a mini-skirt just to show off your beautiful legs. You can always do this in a classier and suggestive manner like wearing a knee-length skirt with slight slit on the sides to give a glimpse of you legs.

Soft colors like white, pastels, beige and cream can light up your face.

Get style inspiration from celebrities or famous people that you admire. Shop in stores that cater to the mature and stylish woman. Trends come and go. Some styles and trends come back so you can always recycle some of your clothes but of course adding a bit of twist.
