defining your look: for the woman over forty

Since I am one who commutes to work every day on the San Francisco Muni, I often look around the train to get a feel for how women dress while going to work. Although, in this part of the continent, we have traded in the suits for a “tasteful” semi-casual look, often times women over 40 tend to dress inappropriately even from the fashion point of view.

What would you consider your look and tell me why?

One thought on “defining your look: for the woman over forty

  1. I recently turned 50. My look is sophisticated and polished but not prim or conservative. I focus on very high quality fabrics and well-cut designs. I am adamant about wearing expensive shoes–Prada or Jimmy Choo–and have real jewelry. I blend in less expensive basics but do not skimp on beautiful fashion forward colorful blouses. I have moved away from short skirts but still wear clothes that show off my figure. I exercise a lot and am determined not to go for any cosmetic alterations. I am happy with being 50 and feel that I can hold my own with women who are 10 – 15 years younger. It’s all about what you do with what you have. I tend to keep things clean and focused. Getting dressed each day is fun for me.
