Fashionable youth sins – you should not have these things after you are 40!
You’re 40, you are in full bloom
You look great, you’re confident and you know exactly what you want.
And that’s wonderful!
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 “it was so cheap” purchases, now no longer work.
And what you should not wear anymore despite a great and well-trained figure:
Super miniskirts and booty shorts
They’re not really cute at 40! Even if you still feel adorably young and super fit. No matter how slim and well-trained your legs are, how firm your bottom is.
Just because you can carry something doesn’t mean you should.
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 messages look a bit childish.
We do not really need a shirt that speaks for us after 40 years. We can do that ourselves as well.
And besides, we are not a walking advertising pillar.
So let’s be fashionable but grown-up.
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 clunky 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 – one of most fashionable youth sins
After wearing them two or three times, acrylic sweaters or scarves quickly look a little unattractive.
They do not feel nice, flake and start to form small nodules.
Besides, it is simply annoying to pluck the fluff out of the sweater and scarf every five minutes.
And quite honestly: noble materials are also flattering. You simply feel good in them.
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 you can see deeply cut straps.
That just doesn’t look very nice!
At the latest now the cheap bras have to go!
You are not doing yourself the best favor if your cleavage looks unattractive.
Even when it comes to your posture, the right bra makes a big difference.
So start now at the latest with high-quality underwear and lingerie, because good lingerie is part of your outfit, your first layer.
Beautiful underwear and the clothes worn over it thus complement each other perfectly to create a stylish outfit. Your feminine shapes and features are thus appropriately presented in the right light.
And you also feel beautiful yourself.
Less is more
To avoid your fashionable youth sins keep in mind, 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 lush frill dress, you probably won’t look good at 40 either.
Think about your preferences and adjust your clothes to suit 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.
Hair clips and cheap accessories
Multicolored hair accessories and colorful hair ties with bows and comic figures, headbands with plastic flowers and flower arrangements should be left to the young people.
No business woman would wear such girlie hair accessories.
Compact powder makes the skin look chalky, dry and old. Choose a nutrient-rich foundation and a serum that gives the skin a fresh kick.
Also recommended for women over 40: Cream eyeshadow and cream rouge.
This gives the skin a certain freshness and automatically makes it look younger.
And last but not least:
Don’t look so gloomy!
Of course we are not getting younger, but that does not mean that we have to look grim.
You are beautiful and life is fun!
Even with our little laugh lines.
And don’t forget:
Looking grimly causes the annoying vertical folds between the upper lip and the nose!
