You're 40, So How Do You Plan To Dress?

Something about 40 says, “Hello world, I’ve arrived!” We want your fashion to relay this powerful message. By now, you’ve (hopefully) reached your confidence peak, and you’re more in love with yourself than ever. You know who you are, you know what you stand for and you know exactly what you want. So, why not make your clothes say that? (Photo: D Dipasupil/Getty Images for Extra)
Say buh -bye to that typical 2-piece suit
Say buh-bye to that typical 2-piece suit: We’re talking fabulous blouses and well-fitting skirts or slacks. No more boring suits, we want to see some color, sass and individuality! Rock a bold purple blouse with a grey pencil skirt or throw a snazzy blazer on top of a chic work-appropriate dress. Our pick: This red-hot Mango Wrap V-neck blouse for $29.99.

Let your fabric do the talking
Let your fabric do the talking: We want you to really invest in the fabric details. A really good leather handbag immediately lets someone know that you’re powerful and in control. And you don’t have to spend a fortune to get your hands on a great one either. Our pick: This Zara Geometric Tote Bag shopper for $39.90. (Photo: Zara)
Skip the mini-skirt and go for the mini-dress
Skip the mini-skirt, go for the mini-dress: Being in your 40s doesn’t mean you can’t show a little leg. Never that! But, there may be a way to do this in a more demure way. We love to see a fabulous 40-something in a chic mini-dress (about 2 inches above the knee), in a sexy print. Our pick: This bold New York and Co. Bell-Sleeve Dress for $45.46.

What are “mom jeans”
What are “mom jeans”: Uh, no mom jeans over here. Put a little more thought into your pair by opting for a darker wash and higher waistline. We love to see them paired with camel-colored booties and chic sweaters. Don’t be afraid of the boyfriend jean, either. They’re trendy and extremely comfy. Our pick: NYDJ ‘Samantha’ Slim Straight Leg Jeans for $110. (Photo: Nordstrom)
Invest in flattering loungewear
Invest in flattering loungewear: There is nothing sexier that looking sexy without even trying. Lace yourself in sensual lingerie or even running errands in stylish comfortable pants can easily add a pop of feel-good vibes to your life. Our pick: H&M stylish sweatpants for $24.99. (Photo: H&M)
