If you’re feeling a little uncomfortable with aging, we all know it’s the age of 40-and-over women looking 30. Forty is nothing, and it might be your best time yet! Fashion advice for short women after 40 doesn’t necessarily mean more restrictions when it comes to your fashion choices, but it should mean being wiser and dressing smarter.

Fashion tips for short women 40 and over

And if you are looking to combine your image of a woman of 40 and over with your hallmark of stature, these are 4 tips that will help you find the course of being yourself.

 Invest in quality clothing brands

Our world today is awash with fast fashion brands. It seems that spending as little money as possible is always the goal. Check the prices very well because, for less than you imagine, you can copy the most modern runway fashion.

Many people think why bother investing in fashion if it changes every year anyway? Fast fashion brands are great in that they give you the option to mix and match lots of outfits without spending too much. However, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

After 40, quality over variety is more important when it comes to your fashion choices. The fabrics, the clothing, the details. Every little thing matters.

High-quality clothing gives you confidence and elevates your image in the eyes of others; hard to do with fast fashion brands. If you’re part of the petite women’s club , check out the small, friendly styles from independent designers on online petite-size sites.

If you intend to spend on a classic trench coat or coat that never goes out of style, we suggest you consider good brands, which are excellent timeless pieces but will last you for many years, and not only that, the excellent construction and material will show to kilometers.

Wear nice flats or low heels

We all love heels in our 20s and 30s, but we have to admit that heels are not comfortable to wear all day. After 40, whether you’re that boss in the boardroom or a mother of two babysitters at home, you’ll find flats or low heels to be more practical than stilettos.

For short women , that could mean losing a couple of inches, but gaining more comfort and confidence by walking more easily. Pointed shoes are your best friend, if you want to lengthen your legs without suffering the pain of high heels. Wearing flats or low heels that matches the color of your back will make your legs look longer.

No need for black all the time

Just because you’ve gained a few pounds compared to your 20s and 30s doesn’t mean you have to ditch the colorful prints and wear black all the time.

In fact, for short women , the opposite is advised, as bright colors emphasize presence and are more flattering to their small body than dark colors. Choose prints on smaller fabrics and avoid larger ones, as the latter could make you look more bloated than your actual weight.

If you are a short woman get a nice bag

A high-quality bag lifts the outfit instantly. After 40, we are sure you have some savings, or at least you started to consider saving and thinking about investing. Handbags, the old accessory are now considered one of the safest and fastest growing ways to invest in the future, provided you keep them in good condition.

Luxury brands like the classic Hermes and Chanel styles have held their own through the good and bad times of the economy. In fact, one study shows that handbags tend to add up in value even when the economy is in recession, because they remain status symbols for the world’s richest women, who are generally recession-proof.

Now, in no way are we advocating that all women after 40 go bankrupt to splurge (tens of) thousands on a Hermes or Chanel, but it is important to have an investor mentality the next time you buy a bag.

Rather than piling up a ton of inexpensive handbags , you may want to consider getting a classic piece that never goes out of style, even though they may not be the current trend in this season’s fashion magazine. Classic bags can cost 2-3 times more, but keep in mind that getting a timeless bag might be one of the best places to put your money.

For short women , choosing the right handbag is important to complement your outfit. It is advisable to get medium-sized bags and avoid bags that are too large (which can overwhelm your short figure) or too small, except at night. If you are short and taller, then your best option might be a large structured or square bag that can balance your curves. You can keep the evening tradition of carrying small bags as long as they don’t seem out of proportion.
