Wardrobe Essentials For Women 40+

Each woman has her own style when it comes to her wardrobe, but when you reach a certain age, you may find yourself wondering what you can do to spice it up or still be "trendy."

Even though some of these may not be your style exactly, you can always add onto it or accentuate it in your own way with some of your favorite accessories.

The following are a few suggestions that you can add to your wardrobe, but it's important to be you, and choose your own style that makes you feel beautiful and confident.

 

  1. Black Dress

You can't go wrong with a black dress. You can dress it up with a pair of elegant heels for date night or dress it down with some nice sandals for a casual walk around the town.

Short sleeve or long sleeve, knee-length or just above, a black dress will always be in style. You can even accentuate it with a belt or ribbon and your favorite jewelry.

 

  1. A Light-Colored Blouse

Depending on your complexion, the color for your blouse may vary. Whether it is beige, taupe, white, or ivory, blouses are a classic option that work well for casual outings.

From classic shirts to boho blouses, there are many different styles to suit your specific wants. You can even try one that is starkly different from the rest of your clothes to create a more edgy look.

 

  1. Jeans

I've heard so many older women tell me that jeans just don't suit their body types; they only accentuate their "flaws."

That absolutely isn't the case! Jeans can help to remove any "flaws" you may have, you just have to find the right ones.

With so many different types of jeans out there, you're sure to find a pair that fits your style. And what's great is they can be worn for almost any occasion!

  1. Leather or Faux Leather Jacket

Maybe you don't love the idea of a leather jacket because you don't consider yourself to be super "edgy" or "punk."

But leather jackets are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can have in your closet. You don't have to go for all black either; they come in many different colors and styles.

Of course, you could always go for the classic look with a black leather jacket and jeans, but there are so many other looks too!

Wear a leather jacket over a nice dress or skirt to implement some striking contrast or wear it over your formal clothes for a more casual feel.

Whatever you decide, be sure to embrace your true self and your style.
