Can I wear this over 40? Diving into the forever camouflage trend

Here's tips to ageless style over 40 and how you can do camouflage.

When I was about 16, I discovered that my mom had great taste. I am sure that was always the case but that’s when I figured it out. Now when I say figured it out, I mean I found her fantastic closet!!  But I soon realized that she hated and forbid me to wear her clothes – she claims I ruined everything but whatever. Now if I got caught she’d make me immediately remove that perfect jacket or shoe or blouse. This would be tricky.

But one day lady luck shined down on me. My mother’s schedule changed or job changed – I can’t quite remember-  and it was now my Dad’s job to drop me and my brother off at school. And very quickly I discovered that Dad had no clue which clothes belonged to me and which ones belonged to my mom. Score! 

I took drastic measures after my mother forbid me from wearing her amazing clothes.

You mean I can go to school without being checked – my wardrobe doubled!!  My only challenge was to beat her home and put everything back in its place before she got home. 

Well, it’s payback time. My daughter is constantly in my stuff. Thankfully we don’t wear the same shoe size but I’ve spent hours looking for pants she’s taken with her to a sleepover. And my earrings disappear and then reappear in her school pictures. 

But I must admit that she’s got great style – different but great.  It is so interesting to see how we interpret the same look.

It inspired me to a do a monthly series sharing how to interpret style trends for the fabulous over 40. It also gives me the opportunity to answer the question I get asked most often: “Can I still wear this at my age?”To begin cut, color, fit and silhouette matter much more than what item you’re wearing. So my answer is YES. Wear what makes you feel most beautiful, sexy, vibrant and healthy!!
