Dress With Sass and Class-Fashion for Women Over 45

February 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 356

Dressing with Class and Sass

You dressed for your parents in your teenage years. You dressed for attention in your 20's. You dressed for your kids in your 30's and now in your 40's you finally get to dress for yourself. Never before have women been so sexy in their 40's. Your confidence is your most beautiful asset, and combined with the right modern styles, expresses just the right combination of class and sass. Fortunately the right modern styles are easily obtainable by following a few simple guidelines.

Build Your Own Style

You are independent and amazing. You can achieve modern styles without becoming a victim of trends best left for 20 year olds and supermodels. This is not to say that you are limited to your mother's wardrobe; it is just suggesting that you also not limit yourself to your daughter's wardrobe. Express yourself with your own combination of classics and trendy items. Do not limit yourself to a particular designer. Combine a customized closet full of articles that you love and that look great on you.

Be Comfortable

High fashion is not synonymous with discomfort. It is difficult to feel put together and beautiful when you can't exhale and blisters are forming on your feet. Here is a secret. Make the clothing fit you, not the other way around. If it does not fit or is uncomfortable when you try it on, leave it on the rack. If you love it and it is not quite right, take it to a tailor. Tailors are an affordable way to customize your wardrobe to your individual needs and make any piece of clothing fit like it was designed for you. When you are comfortable you can concentrate on your life experiences rather than stressing about your wardrobe.

Accessorize

Make-up and jewelry can make or break any look. Visit a professional for advice on breaking out of your old make-up routine. Many retailers have makeup artists available at no cost to help you find the right products. Less is more and the right makeup will enhance your features with a minimal amount of products. Jewelry can customize any outfit to express your style. Use fabulous statement pieces to compliment your outfits without overpowering them. With jewelry, like makeup, less is more.

Find a Great Pair of Jeans

A great pair of jeans is one of the most versatile articles of a wardrobe. From running errands to a night on the town, jeans can be appropriate for many situations. Quality jeans are available at any price range; it just takes a little effort to find the perfect pair for your body. While it is ideal to try on jeans of different styles to find the perfect pair for you, there are a few guidelines to point you in the right direction. Avoid low riding and ill-fitted jeans. Mid-rise jeans provide a curvy waist while maintaining a modern appeal. Jeans that are wider at the bottom balance larger hips while narrow hips appear curvier in slimmer cuts. Little back pockets emphasize your bottom while larger pockets will minimize curvier shapes. Solid dark denim can create longer and leaner looking legs. To provide more flexibility in your wardrobe, have at least one pair of jeans hemmed for heels, and one pair hemmed for flats.

Stunning Classics

Classics are, well, classic. They establish the foundation of your wardrobe and it is important that you are building on solid ground. In addition to a great pair of jeans, every wardrobe needs great pieces that can be customized for any look. Your little black dress does not need to be black. The concept is to have quality pieces that are neutral enough to be combined with more extravagant pieces. Classic items withstand the test of time by being updated with accessories including jewelry, scarves, and handbags, or by being layered with trendier pieces like a brightly colored cropped jacket.

Your 40's are an exciting decade for creating your own style. Following these simple guidelines allows you to effortlessly customize your style to express your confidence and inner beauty. Your clothes should make you feel classy and just a little bit sassy. Just remember, you are not in competition with your mother or your daughter.
