Lessons in 40+ Style From My Readers

Calling all readers! I love it when you share your photos, so please keep them coming. This week I’m featuring photos from 3 lovely Glam Gals who’ve nailed 40+ style. Let’s take a look at their beautiful outfits.

Julia is beaming in this chic  print dress by one of my favorite designers, Michael Kors.  Here’s what I like a about this dress: The silhouette is very clean and simple, but the print is a little exotic (almost snakeskin like), so what you end up with is a very classy dress  that is anything but boring. Classic with a modern, spicy twist- that’s a guaranteed way to look fab after 40.

I also want to mention that this color is perfect for Julia. Getting the right color that makes it look like you are wearing the dress, and the dress is not wearing you is a big part of looking  well dressed too.

I go into great detail about this in my ebook: Color Me Fabulous, so if you don’t have a copy, please Do pick one up. It will change the way you think about color and dressing.

Julia is sure to turn heads in this dress. She seems to have a knack for choosing beautiful dresses. I  have featured her before on Fabulous After 40 in a red and white floral dress and a fuchsia shift dress. Take a peek.

Every woman wants a dress that is versatile and easy to wear and Marilyn has found such a dress.

She’s taken a simple black shift dress- modern and comfy- and upped the ”wow” factor  with some beautiful accessories. Her statement necklace and bold, two-tone metallic shoes (Zara) turn an ordinary dress into an extraordinary one.

I was telling Marilyn I have this same dress in red and this photo has inspired me to run out and buy some d’Orsay pumps to wear with it like she has done. I like these gold ones or these nude ones too.

If you follow our What I wore feature each week you’ll know that Marilyn loves to accessorize, especially with scarves. In past posts we’ve seen her work her magic with an animal print scarf and an ombre scarf. See for yourself how cute she looks.

One of the easiest ways to create a refined look is to wear varying shades of one color. Neutrals are the most elegant.

For example, here’s Susan who I met at a networking luncheon looking cool and classy in  polished grays. She’s combined a soft gray cashmere sweater with a gorgeous gray, wool, pinstripe skirt and the result is very business chic.

It’s the different textures make this monochromatic look interesting. Note the rustic gray beads worn against the super soft gray sweater. The interesting tie waistband also gives the traditional pinstripes a modern boost.

If you love grey, don’t miss this post on how to wear this lovely color.
