Fashion bloggers over 40

How to Mix Textures, Colors, and Prints

For many women, fashion is a mixed bag! In other words, the more prints, the more colors, the more texture, the better. See how these fabulous fashionistas over 40 manage to pull it off!


When it comes to flowers, the prettier, judging by the outfit, this 50+ fashionista and blogger from North Carolina has assembled a bouquet of different florals to create a very modern, feminine look.


Zilla from Australia mixes a super soft, laid-back chambray shirt with a silky knife pleat skirt. She tops it off with edgy leopard print accessories and pearls! A lot is going on, but somehow it works!



Girly Gingham meets a playful floral print in this fun summer outfit from style and fashion blogger Terri.


Codigo, from Spain, blends 3 prints in the most interesting way. A chevron bag comes together with a plaid skirt and polka dot stockings to create a classic look with a creative twist that’s a feast for the eyes.


Italian fashion and beauty blogger Vale looks sophisticated and chic in a co-ordinating chevron sweater and skirt. Same pattern, but two different sizes of the pattern make this work! See more of Vale’s style here.


Stripes on stripes? Tamera, 50+ fashion blogger from California and one of my Fabulous After 40 Styleblazers, is fearless when combining red horizontal stripes with black vertical stripes for a look that is perfectly lined up!


Cherie, a style blogger and vintage shop owner from NYC, combines color in the coolest way. A bright yellow jacket, plus bold red palazzo pants, all tied together with leopard print accessories, is powerful and pleasing to anyone who loves to stand out! Be sure to read my Styleblazer interview with Cherie to find out more about her fabulous look.

I’m always on the lookout for Stylish women to feature. Be sure to add the #fabulousafter40 HASHTAG to your Instagram posts so I can find you easily!

  1. Indeed she is glamorous. I was lucky enough to see her at the event where she wore this gown, and she looked beautiful, slim, and ageless. She outshone many younger attendees whose dresses were also totally glamorous.
