Business Attire: Dresses For Women Over 40

The biggest mistake mature women making in the way they dress at the office is that some women stay stuck in outfit, that worked for them two decades before. But time makes changes to our body and face, that's why most of apparel meant for junior department doesn't suit forty-something women. The following Polyvore set collection suggests you the best tips for business casual and formal dress in corporate office if you are over 40. As you can see from the images below, every buy has the right fit for the body: the gown should not be too tight or too loose or too short, in other words saying: minimize your limitations and emphasize your assets.

What you really need to look for is the accessories line. Keep your eyes on stylish heels, flats, bright clutches, purses and jewelry, I mean, just imagine the way it can change your classic look into something glamour and stylish. Speaking of colors and prints, then of course black is the universal option, but you can always experiment with prints, the only thing (my personal suggestion): do not go for bright colors, know the colors which work perfect for you. So, let's summarize: keep your eyes on comfortable wear, which consists of natural fibers, fits well and doesn't hurt your feet, keep the layering (choose the right blazers to cover your ensemble), choose the right accessories and jewelry, and build your own collection from Monday to Friday.
