There are times when a woman wants to look really feminine, soft and downright pretty! Dinner with your honey might just be that time.
If you are looking for ideas on clothes for women over 40, here’s an outfit you could wear out to a special Anniversary Dinner, Valentine’s Day, or even a fancy date if you happen to be on the market for a partner.
Let’s take a closer look at this Grown-up version of Pretty in Pink.
Did you know that if you want to convey an open heart pink is the color to do it? That’s right. Women, (and even men) who wear pink send the message that they are approachable and capable of loving others. This makes it the perfect date color and a great way to look sexy over 40.
The Wrap Dress
If you know us you know that when it comes to clothes for women over 40 we are crazy about wrap dresses. Diane Von Furstenberg the designer who said, “Feel like a woman. Wear a dress,” invented the wrap dress and it has been going strong since the 70’s as a true classic that is feminine and sexy.
Wrap dresses are super flattering for all shapes because they are usually made of silk or jersey and follow the curves of a woman’s body and help create a waistline even where there isn’t one. You can go wrong in a wrap dress on a date, or anywhere else for that matter. Wrap dresses make you look sexy after 40.
The Dangly Earrings
Maybe you’ve never thought much about jewelry and what jewelry is sexy or not so let’s talk about that now. Think about small button earrings. What message do they send. They’re kind of proper and tight- right- good for the office, but at night you want something much more free, bold and relaxed and that’s why big, dangly earrings work so well. They swing, the move, they dangle and they send a playful message which is exactly the kind of feeling you want to project on a special night with your Mr. Big.
Same principles apply to shoes. Sensible pumps go with sensible business suits, but high, shiny, strappy shoes goes with feminine sexy looks. Paint your toes and show them on a date. It’s a little like flashing a touch of cleavage.
It’s sexy over 40 or at any age. We love the nude heel we’ve chosen because nude shoes- shoes the same color as your skin elongate your legs by creating one continuous line. Plus the nude shoe lets the pink dress grab the spotlight.
Even if you don’t like heels, try to find one that is comfy for the evening. A low, chunky, frumpy shoe like we see so many women resort to out of comfort would destroy this ladylike look.
Nothing says femininity and class more than this quilted Chanel style bag in classic cream. The neutral color keeps the outfit looking elegant. The gold chain on the bag adds a touch of glitz and glam and mimics chain bracelet which is always a great way to make an outfit look pulled together.
