I know I have stated before, if all else fails, consider the color black in fashion. Believe me a woman over 40 can seldom go wrong with the choice of color, because no matter how self-conscious she may feel about her figure, black has a way of smoothing out the edges.
However, choosing age appropriate black dresses or gowns is very important for the woman over 40 because, selecting the wrong cut, length or style , can surely be the most damaging.
Since choosing the dress or gown is a hit or miss in some or most cases, I have included one of my favorite designer’s website here to help guide the process. I have also included some of my favorite selections (below) from the site to consider or duplicate (depending on one’s budget) for that special soiree. Enjoy and let me know what is your favorite gown from the selection.
