Style over 40 πŸŒŸ

July 13, 2016

I’m sitting in a beautiful hotel, having breakfast after a wonderful NYE weekend away without kids, thanks to my wonderful parents. 

On the table next to me is a lady who must be at least 60. Her mid length hair tied back in a ponytail. She wears a black polo neck sweater and black trousers. Black boots. Accessories are black rimmed glasses and a silver vintage rolex watch. A medium sized Louis Vuitton Neverfull.


For me this is style. Especially after a certain age less is definitely more. Quality is much better than quantity. 

Here are the rules I stick to when choosing clothes, accessories and make up as I approach 40 –

  • Buy one good bag, instead of 4 or 5 cheap bags. Not only will a nice bag lift your overall look it will add a touch of class to your appearance. Also it will last you forever.
  • Buy good shoes. They don’t have to be super expensive but practical and smart. 
  • Wear lots of black and navy as your main block of colour and just add splashes of red or yellow to brighten up your mood. For example wear red ballet flats or wear a yellow scarf.
  • Don’t wear things just because they are fashionable. Create your own style and base it on what flatters your shape.

Anna Wintour, Editor of US Vogue, is one of my style icons. Always sleek and in style. Classical. Here’s what she has to say about style, and I totally agree.
