After 40 years of age, you have to be careful about the way you look

Sometimes it happens that a woman's image can play into her hands, adding years and "cheapening" the appearance. Youth and freshness forgive some fashion mistakes, but after 40 years of age it is necessary to choose clothes more carefully, so as not to spoil the impression.

In particular, you should avoid things about which you can say "too". Very short or overly variegated styles, as well as acid colors are taboo for respectable ladies. OBOZREVATEL decided to tell what to avoid (to see the photo, scroll to the end of the page).

Bright design

After 40 years should not be afraid of bright colors, but in the image it must look harmonious and appropriate. Colorful, voluminous prints and acidic images are best avoided.


Long and dark clothes

Gloomy clothes with a simple and long cut are very old and look irrelevant. In addition, the contrast with dark clothes makes the skin look paler and wrinkles more pronounced.



Attracting attention with revealing clothing is a cheap ploy. It looks especially inappropriate on adult women, giving excessive vulgarity.


Baggy clothes

It is very important to set accents in the image after 40 years. Since it is better not to abuse the deep necklines and miniskirts, it is necessary to choose a few fitted and close-fitting styles. For example, do not forget to emphasize the waist. Baggy things will only spoil the proportions of the figure.


Large bags

The peculiarity of too large and voluminous accessories is that they visually make the figure look broader and more massive. Bags with soft edges relax the image, deprive it of clarity and structure. Even if there is a need for a roomy bag, it is better to buy a model with a clear form and of moderately large size.
