Some of the tips below to look casual but still stylish over 40:
1. Try Leggings + Dresses
The flowing short mini dresses worn with feet and high heels look good at the age of twenty and thirty years, but that doesn’t mean they are off-limits to women over 40. Many of these dresses look as terrible as long tops, which means they work for many middle-aged women if you pair it with dark leggings, and ballerina sandals, or flat boots.
2. Throw Wide Belt
A quick way to look over 40 years is to add a wide belt to your casual weekend attire. A wide belt that is worn loosely on the hips with a slight angle, will immediately add a touch of wow factor. Wearing on a wide belt hip is also a fantastic way to disguise the flabby stomach which is common after 40 years of age.
3. Tuck in the Sweater Wrap
The transition to Spring or Autumn has never been easier or more enjoyable than having a wrap. Just wearing it will make you feel like you have more flair and sophistication. Whether it’s a cashmere wrapping shawl, poncho or sweater wrapping jacket down at the front, the sweater wrap adds a graceful and mature style with a very casual look.
4. Experiment with Flat Shoes
If you like to wear jeans on weekends, update it with a nice pair of flats. Not only practical and comfortable, but they are and easy ways to add to your clothing’s personality. Imagine dark brown jeans and tops with a pair of cute leopard flats. Casual, but classy!
5. Add some Costume Jewelry
A pair of jeans with a white shirt looks modest and modest, but add some bold costume jewelry and suddenly your casual look becomes chic. Look for bold, bright necklaces, earrings and bracelets that are bold and bright. The idea is to add color and pleasure don’t be afraid to wear something a little more out there than the fine gold chains you wear all week.
