People say that 40 is the new 30. Some folks go as far as calling 40 the new 20. Um...20 at heart, maybe. These ladies below represent the forties, quite well. They have maintained their weight, which could be a major wardrobe malfunction...if, it is not up to par. Their clothing fits well and the silhouettes are appropriate (always...in my eyes...if you feel confident). Great looks.

I am a huge fan of blending various styles together; while, creating a signature look. The images below are so great. They are dramatic in a simple and natural way. Not everyone would be that daring to mash-up colors, prints and textures; however, it all boils down to confidence. If YOU believe that YOU look amazing...well, your audience will feel the same. I believe that someone's cheese has been moved. Change is good.

Well, you know how they do it in Hollywood. For some reason, almost everything looks great. Halle is so casual in the picture below; yet, she pulls it off in a "I just hopped out of bed, nursed the baby, threw this on and I look/feel fabulous kind of way." Some of us, just have IT without the shades and some of us just DO NOT! The look below is dangerous, do not try this at home.

This is an interesting look. When I stumbled upon this picture, I was a bit amazed. Normally, I am not a fan of shorts on women. I just believe that by a certain age, shorts should remain folded on the table at the store. Not everyone looks great in shorts and not everyone selects a pair of shorts in the appropriate size. In the case below, it appears these shorts are tailored and specifically made for Sophia Bush. She is playing down the semi-nude look by adding a long-sleeve cardigan. The wedge sandals are a perfect color and blend well with her skintone. Khaki has actually made a comeback, this season.

I am a firm believer in the power of accessories. This Jimmy Choo bag is simply divine. If she had only a wallet and her sunglasses case inside....it would still be the right size. It fits! A bag always fits! In this case, it is obvious the bag is kind of stuffed. All of her accessories (sunglasses, sandals and Jimmy) work together and causes this outfit to POP!
