How to dress at 40: the casual suit
It’s not true that when you turn forty you have to wear serious and monotonous suits: choose a tailored suit with unique and original details, to be worn with bold accessories. The trousers with masculine darts, the short jacket with a maxi lapel, to be combined with an oversize woven bag.
Wrapped in a soft cardigan

How to dress at 40: long live accessories!
The dive into the 40s is not synonymous with one and only black. If you prefer to create your wardrobe in neutral tones, you can try to add an original nuance from time to time: a trench coat, a pair of pumps, flashy earrings in a bright shade are perfect for turning your look upside down in a few simple moves.
At the age of 40, accessories should be the star of the outfit and always sought after. Never be without a capacious handbag, alternating with vintage models in all seasons. In summer, diva sunglasses, colourful sandals and jewellery: the latter only in precious materials, and never too much. And then silk or cashmere scarves, leather gloves and fur collars in winter.
Animal-style accessories are also an evergreen to complete the over-40 outfit: to wear them in style, it’s best to bring out the sauvage spirit in small doses. A scarf with a leopard print, a handbag or a shirt with an animal print will immediately give depth and personality to your look.
How to dress at 40: a few mistakes to avoid
It is preferable to create a more mature and refined look after 40. This implies having to remove certain items from the wardrobe from years gone by: plunging necklines, for example. This does not mean that you have to wear only round necklines or turtlenecks. Try to see how seductive and at the same time elegant the most classic shirt can be worn with two or three open buttons.
Likewise, crop tops, very short shorts and fluorescent clothing should be avoided. Better to leave these garments to teenagers and not necessarily follow fashions if they don’t suit us.
The skirt length that best suits the mature but still young woman is the medium length, which is refined and easy to wear on any occasion. Whether it’s a sheath dress, a longuette or a midi skirt, all you have to do is choose the one that best suits your physique.
At the end of the day, it’s simple: all it takes is a few small touches and the style will always be perfect and flawless without having to worry about age.
