Oh look it’s another video from my Style for the Ages series. So far we’ve talked about the importance of dressing your age, style for your 20s, 30s, and today we are moving on to women in their 40s.
I’m not 40 yet (getting there) but I have a ton of clients in their 40s, so I know a thing or two about dressing this age group, especially for women in the workplace.
What I’ve found is that women in their 40s are officially kicking ass! They are the ultimate in business badass. At 40 you’re the boss, and women in their 20s and 30s look up to you are their mentors. You are running the show, and you damn well better look like it.
It’s completely counter-intuitive, but being in your 40s at work is just like being in high school. I have had TONS of clients share stories with me about being sent home for not dressing appropriately, having “mean girl” comments made at the water cooler for not wearing status pieces, and personal accounts of meltdowns because they don’t know what to wear at important meetings.
This could be your most critical style age because what you wear correlates to your paycheck (and you have money to spend on your clothes now too).
