We love seeing the pictures of our fabulous after 40 ladies. We especially love the wide array of pictures we are receiving of our readers in different social situations wearing a variety of different outfits.
This week’s gals run the gamut from formal attire to a stylish trip to the museum. Once again, you are making us proud by showing us that you are fabulous after 40.
The LBD Grows Up
We love seeing variations of the little black dress. Here, Christine, 60, from Rowaton, Connecticut is lovely in this floor length, formal ruched dress in midnight blue. The ruched detail, the long length, and the subtle shimmer makes this dress an excellent choice for a formal gathering. Christine states, “This is not an official photo, but it shows off the dress really well.” It sure does, Christine! You look classy, sophisticated and fabulous after 40.
Adding Style with a Scarf
We say it over and over again here at Fabulous After 40. Accessories can make or break an outfit. One of the best ways to accessorize a casual style and add pizzazz to outfits for women over 40 is by adding a scarf. Chris who is 60 and from the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas says, “I love my scarves, skinny jeans, and drapey tops and hopefully, I am still eligible to be fabulous.”
Chris, you are certainly staying on top of the latest trends, and yes, those trends will make you eligible to be fabulous after 40. Your ombré scarf is a nice complement to the black top. We would, however, recommend a darker washed jean than the one you are wearing. Dark denim dresses up outfits for women over 40 and adds polish to a casual style.
Go Incognito with a Trench Coat!
Some days require over-sized sunglasses and a trench coat. On these days, hide in style! Our reader Lizzy, 44, from Richmond, Virginia sent us a picture in her favorite over-sized sunglasses and colorful trench coat. Lizzy has the right idea. Brighten dreary days with a bold trench and protect those eyes, ladies!
We spotted this chic gal while taking a break from shopping at the mall. Her stylish trench
caught our eye, but it was her entire outfit that we admired. The leggings and boots are a perfect match for a mid-length trench with great detail such as big buttons and a floppy lapel.
The Great Cape
A cape is a great way to keep warm this season. For a casual day at the museum, this color block, striped cape is paired with black jeggings and red flat boots for contrast. Don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns. They add texture and dimension to any outfit.
Mix and Match
JoJami’s mom, JoBee, shows us how mixing and matching colors and textures can balance outfits for women over 40. She mixes a blend of cottons and leathers in the jeggings and pairs them with a patent leather boot that ties the look together She accessorizes with a simple black hat and a colorful, printed scarf that pulls the entire outfit together. Bold rings make a statement without overpowering the outfit and drawing attention away from the key pieces.
