Women’s Fashion Over 40:

How to Look Stylish and Confident Anytime, Anywhere

Do you want to refresh your wardrobe this fall but don’t know where to start? The idea of age-appropriate fashion for women is outdated, as great style has no age limit. Modern-day fashion for women over 40 doesn’t revolve around what is deemed “appropriate” for a specific age group. Even so, you can still embody a timeless, polished aura. Whether you’ve been a fashionista your entire life or are taking baby steps to discover your style, here are a few tips to help get you started. 

Mix and Match

Women’s fashion has come a long way since fully matching outfits were the go-to look. It can be difficult for some to let that go, but being a tad playful with your style can make you feel younger and more confident. That doesn’t mean you have to stop color-matching, as a color-coordinated outfit is always in style. 

However, in terms of color schemes, don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and go for bold patterns and bright colors—and mix and match to shake things up! A wrap dress plus size, petite, or regular in a polka dot print is perfect for fall, and you can add different colors or textures, like a scarf and boots, to make a fashion statement at the office this autumn. Lisa in Aubergine is an easy go to for this look. She's polka dot, has sleeves, and super soft! Her neutral tone matches the changing foliage as we ease into the cooler weather.

Go for Dresses

Dressing in your middle years doesn’t have to be complicated. Although our bodies and appearance may change with age, and you might avoid certain styles, you can’t go wrong with faux wrap dresses. A faux wrap dress gives you the same look as a traditional one but without the work! 

You don’t have to worry about closing or knotting faux wrap dresses, as this one-piece dress slips over the head, while the faux wrap at the waist creates definition for a flattering silhouette. You can wear a wrap dress anywhere, from work to weekends to weddings. A faux wrap dress like Lisa in Dark Plum, will be your go-to for date nights, special occasions, work, or anywhere. So, this is one staple you need to have in your wardrobe.


Now that you’ve found us here at Connected Apparel, we hope you feel unique and heard and that we will quickly become your go-to for all your wardrobe needs—for work, special occasions, or daily wardrobe staples. 

Nevertheless, it's important to remember that fashion is a reflection of your personality, and there are no age restrictions when it comes to expressing yourself through style. Embrace the confidence that comes with age and use these tips as a starting point to refresh your fall wardrobe. Experiment, mix and match, and most importantly, have fun as you explore the endless possibilities of fashion that transcend age. You can start your style journey with our new arrivals here.
