Are your mom jeans giving away your age? If you are a woman over 40, you need to know that you can be just as sexy and good looking as your younger counterparts. The worst thing you can do is to dress too young. It has the opposite effect, and makes you look like you are trying too hard to look younger. Put down the mini skirt. Even if you have great legs, mini skirts are not meant to be worn by women in their 40s. Skirts that hit right above the knee are much more attractive and flattering. Add a sexy shoe to show off your legs. Skip the baggy jeans and look for tailored dark wash jeans that show off your shape. Do not worry about ALL trends. Instead, I suggest you find a print or a bold piece of jewelry and develop a signature look for yourself. The style confident women I know say that the idea of age appropriate dressing has no meaning for them. It is more about body appropriate dressing. Style after 40 is not about competing with your daughters or dressing like the girl you were 20 years ago. It is about dressing like the girl you are now.
