Don't wear this: 5 non-obvious mistakes 40+ women make that ruin their style
When a woman turns 40 or more, it doesn't mean she has to wear baggy clothes, hide her legs behind long skirts, and throw away "too bright" clothes. These are just stereotypes that you should forget about. Learn how to choose the right shades and patterns, the right cut, and the right length for your clothes.
But first, make an audit of your own wardrobe. Check what things spoil your style. Read more in the OBOZREVATEL article.
1. Colorful prints
Everything in the image should be in moderation, including patterns and patterns. Do not combine several things with animal or floral prints at once. Choose one with elegant polka dots, checks, or thin vertical lines, and combine it with basic plain clothes.
2. Improperly selected underwear
Take a closer look at whether you have chosen to see if it's the right size of panties and bras. Are they tight? Are their contours visible through your clothes? Do they leave marks on your body after wearing them? Underwear of your size makes you feel light and comfortable all day long. But too small or too large will distort the silhouette of the figure.
3. Exceptionally maxi
Many women 40+ believe that it is bad to expose their legs and arms. They "hide" in maxi dresses and skirts. You don't have to limit yourself. There is a huge selection of midi and midaxe items (a little above the ankle and a couple of centimeters below the middle of the calf) that will definitely not make the looks vulgar. In addition, they look more elegant and impressive than maxi.
4. All clothes are loose-fitting
Another mistake women 40+ make is wearing baggy clothes that completely lose their silhouette and figure. Such looks never look stylish. Choose one loose-fitting item (a T-shirt, shirt or cardigan) and pair it with straight pants or flared jeans.
5. Low-waisted jeans or pants
Yes, they're back in fashion now, but we don't recommend adding them to your wardrobe. This style does not change the proportions of the figure for the better and makes the legs "shorter". Instead, wear high-waisted models that emphasize the hips and slightly elongate the silhouette.
