Reaching your 40s is a roller-coaster of emotions. You become more confident in yourself and your choices and have developed a great style sense for yourself. The Forties is just the right time to freshen things up in your appearance and your wardrobe, and we bet these styling tips would be great for you to get started:
Invest in select pieces
When you reach your 40s, fast fashion brands do not appeal to you anymore. You are more concerned with elegant, quality pieces rather than acquiring many mediocre clothes. Investment pieces like hats, bags, shoes, and coats instantly lift up your entire outfit and can be reused in a variety of ways to add finesse. Look at timeless classics and although they do cost more upfront, they also give you great value for money.
Get a few monochrome pieces for your wardrobe. Mixing and matching prints gives you a casual look–monochrome matching invokes gravitas, especifically when done in subtle tones. Neutral browns, grays, nudes, and creams are timeless options for an elevated, classy look for both day and nighttime.
Give an edge with colored leather
Incorporate colored leather to uplift any drab outfit. Burgundy, olive green, and navy blue are the perfect fall colors to get your leather jacket in. They can instantly modernize your look and give you an edge over other heavy winter pieces. With great vegan leather options in the market, you can now create the perfect modern look, free from cruelty.
Construct your personal style
By now you know very well what looks and works well with your body shape. Develop a personal style that looks best on you and falls within your budget. Choose the most flattering colors and cuts according to your height and figure.
Think of what makes you unique, and wear what you think personifies your character.
Build a capsule wardrobe
With years of experimenting with your looks and style, you have now developed a certain taste in clothing, and now is the right time to build a capsule wardrobe. Choose select pieces of two dresses, two bottoms, and five tops that you can create up to forty looks for your capsule collection with. Incorporate a few statement pieces such as bags, jewelry, and shoes to uplift and diversify each look and you’re all set!
