7 Rules to look sexy over 40
Sexy – what an interesting word. What does it actually mean to be sexy over 40?
Actually, I do not even like saying “sexy” when describing style. The best style description was said by Coco Chanel:
“A woman should be two things: CLASSY and FABULOUS”
She also said:
“Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the OPPOSITE OF VULGARITY”.
This is my definition of “sexy” or rather:
A STYLISH woman over 40 is CLASSY, FABULOUS and the OPPOSITE OF VULGAR!
The older we are, the more luxurious we should look. My grandmother used to say that everything looks good on a young body, but when we get older we have to choose clothes and accessories wisely.
Luxury doesn’t mean very expensive, but luxury does mean good quality.
Here are 7 ways to look sexy/stylish over 40:
- Hair, skin and nails – always well-taken care of.
Hair extensions, nail tips, and too much hairspray are not recommended! Loose, bouncy hair able to flow around your face gives you a nice and fresh look (regardless of its length). Ladies, men love it 😉
2. Make-up – natural and not too heavy.
Too heavy and dark make-up will make you look older. Use some primer to brighten your face, and always arm yourself with a smile – it’s the most powerful weapon in a women’s arsenal!
3. Focus on your best attribute – emphasize it and be proud of it.
Showing too much skin at once, is tasteless even when you look like a goddess. In other words: do not show too much skin.
4. Clothing – rather fitted but not tight.
Forget about sizes and stop stressing yourself – it’s not true that we should all be “0” size. Choose a size for each piece of clothing that works for you (and in my opinion this will and should vary, believe me).
5. Shoes – good quality, comfy and always clean.
Choose shoes in which you walk with grace. There is nothing more disheartening, than a woman barely able to walk although her shoes are fancy-schmancy 😉
6. Accessories – interesting and good quality.
They should spice up your style. Choose one accessory as your trade mark. (I love jewelry, especially necklaces).
7. Self-confidence, sense of humor and mystery.
There is nothing more sexy than confidence. A woman who likes herself looks happy and is happy. And she always leaves any watchers with some room for imagination – A magic combination!
This is my subjective opinion on the sexy/stylish look for women over 40.
