No woman wants to get older but hitting 40 can often feel like we’re really starting to get a bit older! It can be difficult to find something nice to wear which also feels age appropriate – many over 40s feel self-conscious if they are dressed a bit ‘young’. Here we’ll look at some top fashion tips for women over the age of 40.

Rather than attempting to look young when choosing clothes, try instead to go for a modern look. You don’t need to feel uncomfortable showing a lot of skin or wearing tight clothes but do pay attention to current trends. You can actually wear just about anything as long as you style it right. So, a younger woman could wear the same dress as you, but by choosing different accessories and extras, you can both create two totally different looks.

As you get older, you might be able to afford some high-end designer goods. A designer handbag is a really great way to create a timeless, elegant look which is perfect for older women. You can find many LV discount bags online, although do take care not to purchase a fake. If the price is extremely cheap, it’s probably too good to be true.

If you are looking for a great summer look which doesn’t involve bearing your legs, there are plenty of options which will still keep you cool. You could try wearing loose, palazzo pants which are a great look for older women too. Or you could try Capri pants or leggings if you are worried about your thighs. Longer dresses are also a great summer look – try a midi or maxi dress for maximum coverage and comfort. Maxi dresses are a great style for petite women, although ensure the dress doesn’t drown you!…
