It’s embarrassing…. mature women who are so addicted to”cute” that they don clothes and accessories that make them look like middle aged moms playing little girl dress-up.
Now most of us love “cute” to some degree, but you really have to be careful after 40 that you don’t go overboard with what you consider cute, or that too much “cute” begins to define your look. Clothes and accessories that are too junior will not make you look younger; they will make you look older than you, are and rather silly.
Here are a few examples of ” CUTESY” things that, believe it or not, I’ve seen over 40 women wearing. Stay away from these!
|Not “Charming” over 40: Yes they are Marc Jacobs, but don’t let designer labels make you think that anything goes. On a grown up-gal these “cute” women’s sandals will make you look like you are wearing your grandaughter’s party princess shoes.|
|Furrrget these! These kind of remind us of those feather earrings we all wore in the 70’s. Feathers, fur..they’re all frankly fads, and too tacky for a grown up gal.|
|Ugg..There’s Ugg boots and now Ugg purses. This mini alpine girl tote is cute….if you are an eleven year old.|
|Bows, ruffles, flounce, cutesy sleeeves: This dress has them all. Stay away from clothes that are too frilly or fussy, sweet and sappy. Check your mirror. You’re a mature woman!|
|Time to get rid of: Watches like this…… in a cotton candy color or with a glittery baby doll heart. They belong in teen territory!|
|Cute and Cozy: Yes it is cute on this sweet young thing,(who could wear a prison uniform and look good), but on a grown up gal these pancake flannel p.j.s will most likely make you look fat and frumpy. You deserve something with a little more sex appeal than bacon and eggs-right?
