Fashion for Women Over 40

20, Mar, 19

No matter your age, fashion should be fun and make you feel comfortable and confident. It is tough for many women over 40, 50, 60 and beyond to know how to put together a clothing wardrobe that is flattering and age appropriate. Many women struggle feeling that the clothes they currently wear are dated, but also feel silly when they try on the latest fashion trends. So we’ve decided to help out. Check out below for some tips and tricks on how to find your style over 40.

Styles That Are Too Young

One of the common concerns women over 40 have about their clothes is that they feel like they try to look younger and it doesn’t always work. Many woman avoid dressing in certain styles in fear that the styles are more suitable for younger woman. Then there are some others that dress in styles trying to look younger but seem to somehow look older and sometimes a bit silly. An example of this are women who wear skirts that are too short.

The solution to this concern is to create a wardrobe built on clothes and styles that appropriately fit you. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Even if you can fit into junior clothes, be careful in those departments.
  • When you wear any kind of cap sleeve shirt or plain colored t-shirt, be cautious with too many accessories that shine and sparkle too much.
  • Focus on fit instead of size. Especially when wearing tops like layering shirts or other essential shirts, don’t get trapped by only wanting to wear a certain size. Too tight can make you look heavier and older. Buy clothes that really fit your body shape.

Fashion Trends

Make sure to check out all the latest fashion trends to find the right clothes and accessories. Finding practical and stylish outfits doesn’t have to be difficult. Being over 40 doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice style. While on the one hand it is suggested to avoid certain styles that look too young, the same goes for styles that look too old. Don’t buy stuff that makes you look older. You aren’t in your seventies, so there are still fun ways to make bright colors look amazing on you. Some things to avoid are thick rimmed glasses, chain jewelry, older cardigans, and granny shoes.

Fashion doesn’t have to end just because you are getting older; you can still look and feel amazing at any age. Invest in some quality clothes and essential layering shirts or cap sleeve shirts in order to build up a timeless wardrobe that you can feel comfortable and confident in every single day.

While the wearability of some trendy pieces may wax and wane, there are some great fabrics and designs that really never go out of style. Don’t feel like fashion is a boat that you just missed as you grow older, you can always find something that works for you.

Online vs. In-Store Shopping

20, Mar, 19

In-store or online shopping, which one do you prefer? For some people, they love the thrill of going into a store and seeing items they want in-person. Other individuals try to avoid the stores as much as possible. It could be because shopping in stores takes too much time, or maybe because the stores can get crowded. With tons of online store options, you can easily do all the shopping you need to without ever leaving your home. Whether you are shopping for clothes, home accessories, appliances or even toys for your kids, you can find anything both online and in-stores. How you do your shopping is all a matter of preference.

At Heirloom Clothing, we know that not every woman has the time to go shopping for the things they need. This is why we have created both in-store and online shopping options so that you can shop for your favorite layering shirts anytime, anywhere. Here are a few benefits of both online and in-store shopping that women love.

Online Pros

One of the best benefits of shopping online is the convenience. You can quickly order everything that you need either for you or your family and have it shipped right to your house. Essentials like cap sleeve shirts, accessories, pants, shoes and jackets can all be found online. You can get clothes for the whole family without having to deal with crowded stores.

When shopping online, many brands offer free returns or in-store returns, so if the product you bought doesn’t fit right or isn’t quite what you wanted, you can easily return/exchange it. More and more stores are also offering free-shipping, making online shopping cheaper and more convenient than ever.

Another benefit to shopping online is you can get the best deals. Many clothing stores have special online-only discounts or will send coupons right to your email. Although some companies can clutter your inbox with emails, it's always a good idea to sign up for email lists so that stores can notify you of the best deals — how else will you know when your favorite layering shirts are on sale?

In-Store Pros

If shopping is one of your favorite past-times, then you probably love going into a store and looking at all the items. Even with all the online shopping options, in-store shopping will probably never go away because of how much people love shopping. You get to leave with your items right away, and if shopping for clothes, can try them on right in the store and not have to worry about making returns. It can be frustrating waiting a few days for that cap sleeve shirt you purchased online to arrive, all to find out it doesn’t fit right in the first place and you need a different size.

When you shop in a store, you also get the expertise of the clothing associates. Some stores offer free sizing or tailoring, something you won’t find when you order online. They can help you find the right sizes, as well as recommend certain items above others. Store associates aren’t just there to help you check out, they are trained to know how to help customers in any way possible.
Whether you enjoy shopping online, in-store or maybe even a combination of both, there’s a variety of different brands that offer all the products you could ever need. Whether you are searching for some new layering shirts to add to your closet or even a birthday gift for your best friend, there are lots of shopping options right at your fingertips.

Casual Date Night Outfits

20, Mar, 19

Everybody loves date night no matter how old you are! That feeling of a night out without any other distractions. No work, no kids, and no other commitments. However, after an exhausting day, the last thing you probably want to do is get all dressed up just for one night. Well, the good news is that you don’t have to. Dates now are very casual, so you should dress casual too.

With Heirloom Clothing’s wide selection of comfortable and flexible layering shirts, you can look chic and stylish on your date without even feeling like you changed out of your cozy t-shirt. Here are a few ways you can wear a casual yet fashionable date night outfit.

Jumpsuit or Romper

Not only are jumpsuits, rompers and jumpers really in-style right now, they are also really comfortable. If your jumper or romper has thinner straps, a solid colored layering shirt underneath can provide you with a little more coverage, so you can feel confident in your outfit all night long. If it’s a little bit cooler outside, throw a jacket over top and you will be good to go!

Black and White

Black and white is a classic combination that looks both great in casual and formal styles. A pair of black jeans with a white blouse and a white cap sleeve shirt underneath will be the perfect casual date night outfit. You can pair this with your favorite pair of sandals or fashionable sneakers, and add a pretty gold necklace for a bit of shine.

T-shirt and Jeans

You can never go wrong with your favorite pair of jeans and a simple cap sleeve shirt in your favorite color. When you wear clothes that you love and feel confident in, you won’t have to worry about feeling uncomfortable in your outfit. You will just be able to enjoy your date’s company and feel relaxed all night. A pair of fashionable sneakers or even a cute ankle boot will be the perfect shoe to complete your effortless look.

Denim Jacket and Skirt

If you are needing something slightly nicer than a casual outfit, a simple skirt paired with a denim jacket is the way to go. You can choose to wear more of a structured midi skirt, or something more straight and flowy. Add your go-to layering shirt and your denim jacket over-top for a casual yet classy look. Any pair of shoes will look great with this, but a wedge sandal will look fantastic and help show off your legs.

All Black

We mentioned that black and white was a classic combination, but black on black is another classic look that will result in a stunning outfit. A black long sleeve layering shirt tucked into a pair of black jeans or pants will look great on just about anyone. Add your favorite pair of black shoes and some metallic jewelry to get that chic black on black look.

For the most fun and exciting date night, a casual outfit is the way to go. By following these tips, you can create a bunch of different date outfits. The more outfits you have means more date nights! If you need some new casual pieces in your wardrobe, head over to Heirloom Clothing to view our selection of fashion and essential items.
