Tip #2 – Buy yourself a tailored Jacket!
Listen, we all know our bodies change as we get older, but good fashion sense doesn’t. If you’ve never gotten yourself a darling fitted jacket treat yourself to this little gem asap.
And I’m not talking boring black either. Don’t be afraid of color. A fun blazer in a bright color not only lightens your mood, but says your a risk taker as well…
The tailored jacket is not only a smart fashion choice, but also a versatile piece for every woman’s wardrobe, especially those over 40. She can wear it with jeans, pants (shown) a skirt, and/or over a sheath dress. That’s a lot of bang for your buck.
I’ve had the above jacket for years and still get tons of compliments every time I wear it. And, no, it’s not Chanel (although it looks it, LOL) it’s from Ann Taylor Loft.
And likewise, if you’ve never had your clothes tailored now is the time to start.
My tailor always says everyone should get their clothes tailored, and maybe if I could wear most clothes right off the rack I wouldn’t agree with him, however, at 5′ 3″ I’d concede that he’s right.
Do you have a favorite jack you wear?
Do you get your clothes tailored?
