Wondering what to do about your wardrobe?
You’re not alone.
Capsule wardrobes have become popular in recent years, and for good reason: they’re easy, affordable, and help you get rid of clothes you don’t wear anymore.
But if you’re a woman over 40, it can be hard to figure out how to create a capsule wardrobe that works for you.
Especially if you have more than one child.
Your style may have changed since the last time you made a capsule wardrobe, or maybe you’ve gained weight or lost weight since then.
Either way, here are some things every woman over 40 needs to know about capsule wardrobes.
What Is A Timeless Capsule Wardrobe?
A timeless capsule wardrobe is a collection of clothing items that you can mix and match to create an infinite number of outfits.
The idea is that you only buy pieces that will last for years, and then you can wear them over and over again without ever getting bored.
It’s similar to the idea of having a capsule wardrobe, but with one key difference.
Timeless capsule wardrobes are designed to last for decades instead of months or seasons.
5 Things A Woman Over 40 Should Know About Capsule Wardrobe
If you’re at the age where your friends are starting to have babies and you’re looking to get married, then it’s time to start thinking about your wedding dress.
But before you do that, you need to think about what kind of wardrobe you want to have for when the day comes.
If you’re not sure what a capsule wardrobe is, then let me be the first to tell you.
It’s basically a uniform.
You wear the same thing every day!
And it’s not just a casual thing where everyone has their own style and there are no rules; this is something very specific (and very strict).
But if you’ve never tried it before or don’t know what it means by “capsule,” don’t worry.
I’ve got everything you need to know about how it works and why it can make life so much easier for women over 40.
1) Clothing Is A Tool
I know, I know, you’ve heard it before.
But it’s true!
Clothes are there to help you express yourself and feel confident, so start thinking about them as more than just an accessory.
When you’re choosing your wardrobe, consider:
What do you like?
What makes you feel good?
What does your body look like?
What do you want other people to notice about your style?
The answers might be different for everyone, but the first step is always finding out what works for YOU!
2) Don’t Buy An Entire Capsule Wardrobe
The goal of a capsule wardrobe is to have a handful of go-to pieces that you’ll always reach for.
But if you buy an entirely new wardrobe, it will be hard to keep up with the seasons and trends, and you’ll just end up with a closet full of clothes that you don’t really wear.
Instead, try buying one new item every season, a blouse or pair of pants, and then mix and match your old clothes with it so that everything looks fresh.
3) It’s Not A Race
One of the biggest issues I see with women in their 40s is that they’re always trying to keep up with people who are younger than them.
This can be especially true in the fashion industry, where trends change quickly and it’s easy to feel behind if you haven’t been keeping up with what’s new.
But here’s the thing: there are no winners in this race.
No one is going to be crowned “best dressed” for wearing a jumpsuit or for wearing a full-length gown.
It’s all about your personal style, and what makes you feel good when you look in the mirror.
4) This Can Organize Your Closet
A capsule wardrobe is the easiest way to organize your closet.
A capsule wardrobe is a carefully chosen collection of clothes that you can mix and match to create dozens of outfits.
The goal is to have enough items in your closet so that you don’t have to spend time thinking about what to wear every day.
So that you can spend your energy focusing on other things like work or family.
5) It’s Not Always About Money
Capsule wardrobes are all about being more intentional about what you wear, and that’s really great.
But sometimes, it’s not about money.
It’s about your personal style and how much time you want to spend on getting dressed in the morning.
If you love putting together outfits with a ton of different pieces, then a capsule wardrobe isn’t for you—and that’s okay!
You can still be stylish without spending hours each week getting ready.
If you’re someone who’s looking to do less laundry every week, though?
A capsule wardrobe might be exactly what you’re looking for.
And if it’s not an option right now?
That doesn’t mean it never will be.
What Should A 40-Year-Old Woman Wear Out?
If you’re a 40-year-old woman, you probably want to know what to wear out.
But how do you find the best outfit for your age?
Where do you start?
Who has time for all of this?
Don’t worry, I’ve got your back.
Here are some tips on how to dress like a pro at 40:
1) Wear What Makes You Feel Good
When you’re 40, you don’t want to be worrying about what you look like.
You want to be worrying about the fact that your family is going to be there, and they’re not going to care if you’re wearing a dress or jeans.
They just want to see you.
You want to be thinking about how much fun it’s going to be when you get there and see all those people who have been in your life for so long.
And so, when it comes time for you to get ready for this party?
Don’t worry about what other people are going to think of your outfit.
Just wear something comfortable!
2) Try Not To Be Self-conscious About It
For those of you who are in your forties, I have some advice for you.
I know it can be hard to dress when you’re over forty because all of your clothes seem to be designed for someone else.
But don’t worry!
I’ve got some tips on what to wear and where to find it so that even if you’ve never been a fashionista, you’ll feel like one at the end of this post.
First things first: don’t be self-conscious about it.
You’re not going to see anyone who matters anyway—and even if they were there, they’d probably just think how great you look!
3) Ask Other People’s Opinions
You know what?
You don’t have to be the one to make this decision.
Go ahead and ask other people what they think.
Hey, you don’t have to do everything yourself!
You can ask for help with this one.
Just ask your friends or family members what they think you should wear out.
Maybe someone will suggest something that sounds like fun or looks great on you and you wouldn’t have thought of it on your own!
How Can I Look Trendy In My 40s?
You can look trendy in your 40s by wearing clothes that fit you well and make you feel confident.
In your 40s, the biggest thing to focus on is the fit of your clothing.
If the piece of clothing doesn’t fit well, then it will not look good on you.
Even if you’re wearing something that’s super trendy, if it doesn’t fit right then it won’t be flattering for your body type and age group.
You should also think about how the piece looks from different angles—both front on, as well as from the side or back.
It’s important that everything fits well when you move around in it!
How Should I Dress For Over 40 Overweight?
If you’re overweight and over 40, the best way to dress is to make sure that you’re comfortable.
It’s important to wear clothes that fit well, but if you can’t find something that fits right off the rack, don’t worry—there’s plenty of room in the world of plus-size clothing.
You might even find that a pair of pants that were tight on you when you were younger are now loose enough to be considered “roomy.”
If you feel good about yourself and are wearing clothes that fit well, it’s time to update your wardrobe with new items that reflect your new size and shape.
Be sure to take advantage of all of the different styles available for plus-size clothing, including empire waist dresses, wrap dresses, blazers, jackets, cardigans, and tunics.
