When you’re 40, you’re in full bloom.
You look great, you’re confident and you know exactly what you want.
And in view of fashionable events, you should, of course, emphasize your advantages.
In other words, some clothes and accessories that looked cool and funny in our youth are now a thing of the past.
So it won’t be embarrassing from a fashion point of view, we should just part with certain things now.
We have briefly summarized which “youthful sins” and “we simply didn’t buy enough money” you should no longer wear, despite a great and well-trained figure:
Super miniskirts and booty shorts
They’re not really cute at 40! Even if you still feel ravishingly young and super fit. No matter how slim and well-trained your legs are, how tight your back is – just because you can wear something doesn’t mean you should do it.
It just doesn’t look chic and the effect is always the same, the wrong men whistle at you and women with taste frown.
Simply choose more sophisticated dresses, skirts or trousers that caress your feminine curves. For example, how about a pencil skirt. It looks super sexy and gives your fantasy a little more room and is all the more seductively.
T-shirts with logo print
T-shirts with supposedly funny news seem slightly unadulterated.
We don’t really need a shirt that speaks for us after 40.
We can handle this on our own. Besides, we are not a walking advertising pillar. Let’s grow up fashionably.
Handbags made of imitation leather
You should definitely invest a little money in a good bag. A high-quality real leather bag not only looks better, it also lasts much longer. It is always worthwhile to choose a classic variant.
Imitation leather shoes
and poorly crafted shoes. The quality of shoes definitely pays off. Both in terms of wearing comfort and appearance. Even shoes that look too bulky with platform soles with all kinds of wild adornments are far from being fashionably appropriate.
Paint anything that smells too suspiciously like girlie fashion.
There are many ingenious ways for women over 40 to show off their beautiful and well-shaped legs.
Acrylic Sweaters and Scarves
After wearing two or three times, acrylic sweaters or scarves quickly look a bit unattractive. They felt, fluffed and began to form small nodules. Besides, it’s just annoying to pluck the lint from your sweater and scarf every five minutes.
Cheap and poorly fitting lingerie
With some women, you can see that they are equipped with a bra that does not fit well and does not fit well. Over time, the force of gravity decreases a little and it is precisely then that it is important to keep everything in the right place with the right underwear.
Sometimes the bra shimmers darkly through the white blouse or the straps cut deep. That just doesn’t look very nice! The cheap bras have to go now at the latest!
You don’t do yourself the best favor if your décolleté looks unattractive.
Even when it comes to your posture, the right bra makes a huge difference. So, start using high-quality underwear and lingerie now, because lingerie is part of your outfit, the first layer you choose. Underwear and underwear worn over it complement each other perfectly to a stylish outfit, which puts your female forms and advantages appropriately in the right light.
Less is more
It is no longer important to wear the largest or most eye-catching shiny ring. Fashion jewelry made of plastic and too much bling-bling a la Las Vegas is also too much of a good thing for a stylish woman over 40.
Put your money on quality and not on quantity.
The rule is: less is more! Shine through minimalism.
How good! Fortunately, we no longer have to follow every trend.
If you didn’t look good at 20 in a flowing dress, you probably won’t at 40.
Reflect on your preferences and adapt your garments to them.
The old dress size
Even if you have always worn size “S”, make sure that the garment fits well. No matter what size the label says. Sizes often differ.
Hairclips and cheap accessories
Colorful hairclips and colorful hair rubbers with bows and comic figures, headbands decorated with plastic flowers and flower arrangements should be left to the teenies. No businesswoman would go after a Girlie hair ornament like that.
Compact powder makes the skin look calcareous and old. Choose a nutrient-rich foundation and a serum that gives the skin a fresh kick.
Also advisable and recommended from 40: cream eyeshadow and cream rouge.
This gives the skin a certain freshness and automatically makes you look younger.
And last but not least:
The permanently sinister look on your face!
Of course, we’re not getting any younger, but that doesn’t mean we have to look grim. You are beautiful and life is fun! Even with small laughter lines.
Looking grimly causes the annoying vertical folds between the upper lip and the nose!
