Forties are the new thirties, and there is no better time to come in your element and own yourself than when you hit the Four Oh. You are more confident, know what you like and feel good in, and above all, are ready to embrace yourself for who you are. Developing your style statement is also one of the most fun aspects of life in your forties. You are all out of pretenses for the world, and can’t help but do, wear and flaunt what you have got. Here are some killer style tips for you to follow in the fourth decade of your life:
Identity your style Icon
Everyone admires the style and fashion sense of someone, and it is high time you can pick a style icon of your own to follow and take inspiration from. The style icon doesn’t necessarily have to be from the current times. Go classic, and opt for looks that are more flattering to your body type and personal style. You can shop around for looks from a number of style icons, picking and choosing what draws you most about their looks.
Invest in some classic accessories :
Your accessories and accompanying pieces of wardrobe are also an investment of a kind. After you reach your forties, it is best to look out for high quality accessories, shoes, bags and coats which can help elevate your wardrobe and become an integral part of your signature style. These accessories can make you instantly look put together, and add a certain class and finish to your entire outfit.
Monochromatic fashion is one way to appear more chic and stylish. Curate a few separate pieces in a single color to add gravitas and elegance to your wardrobe. Subtle, pastel tones work best for an entirely monochrome outfit. Neutral colors like beige, browns, grays and blues also are great options to go for putting together a monochromatic outfit.
Incorporate some leather
Adding leather into your outfit can make you stand out from the crows, and add character, depth and edge to your look. Coloured leather jackets are the best way to modernize your wardrobe without appearing out of touch with current fashion. A burgundy, navy blue and olive green jacket can really give you an edge without making you appear too experimental or ‘out there’. You can go for a cruelty free, modern look with coloured jackets by choosing vegan leather as a wardrobe staple.
