We know that fashion and style have no age and that everyone is free to dress and make up as they wish, of course! But it is true that as we get older there are some fashion and beauty trends that suit us more than others, as we have already seen in this article on how to look after your 40s.
At 40 you're still young, don't worry about that, but the body tends to change and take on a new shape, and that's something we need to keep in mind when we are 40.
Set your style
Sometimes we reach an age where the style we usually use evolves, changes and with it the way we dress and the clothes we wear.
There comes a point where it is not at all advisable to become obsessed with fashions. You reach such a stylistic maturity, so to speak, that it is more advisable to choose a garment for the simple fact that it suits you, rather than because it does or does not follow a certain fashion. We advise you to keep trying and wearing new things, you never know where you might find something that makes you look great and that you never thought you would wear.
Also, you should always keep in mind that a mature look is not synonymous with dressing like an old person. You can wear an outfit with these characteristics, looking youthful, modern and elegant at the same time.
A good option in these cases is to combine timeless pieces that seem to have been in your wardrobe forever with the latest trends. You should visit Pouted magazine to find helpful articles about the latest trends, fashion tips and guides. That would give your ideas about the latest trends and cloths.
Take into account the changes in your body
It's not something to be ashamed of, it's something natural and it will happen to all of us sooner or later. Your body changes over the years, but that doesn't mean you have to hide it and can't wear clothes to show it off. The only thing you should take into account, and it is for your own comfort, not for any other reason, is the new morphology of your body, in order to choose clothes that suit it.
A good way is to try different types of trousers, looking for the one that suits you best, be it skinny trousers, flared trousers or straight cut trousers, you will find out for yourself what suits you best.
It is also a good idea, and this advice does not understand age, as you can take it into account at any time, it is a more general fashion tip, look for balance in your looks, that is, if you wear a tight blouse, ideally combine it with a wider bottom and vice versa.
Stick to colour trends
Although the colour black will be your eternal ally, as it combines with everything and is a very elegant tone, don't abuse it! Look for the new trends of each season and choose your favourite colours. In any case, if you like dark tones, you can choose blue or grey garments as a substitute for black, they stylise in the same way and will not harden your features so much.
Sneakers are always a good choice
If there is a garment that should never leave your wardrobe, it is sneakers. Comfortable, present in all the latest trends and perfect to combine with any style. What's more, they add a youthful touch to any outfit they go with. You can wear them with dresses, long skirts, jackets and trouser suits or any other elegant garment, for a more casual style. And they will always be the perfect match for jeans.
Build up a good wardrobe
Trends change, your style, may also vary, but there are key pieces that remain immutable, these are the basics of fashion and you should always have them because despite being simple garments, they are perfect to combine and create ideal looks.
Among these necessary items, we find a plain white t-shirt, a black one, a black blazer, jeans that fit you great, a leather jacket, black trousers, a plain neutral coloured coat, a knitted jacket and a woollen jumper. We also need some basic accessories like a black bag or some classic trainers.
As you can see, they are neutral garments that combine perfectly with everything you can imagine, being able to include touches of colour to taste and accessories.
