When I need inspiration for writing this blog, I often turn to other bloggers for ideas. Some of my favorite fashion blogs are written for—and by—ladies over 40. Because when I put myself in our customers’ shoes, I realize that growing older doesn’t mean you have to wear boring clothes. With age comes the confidence and sophistication to wear what you want, and there is a huge community of mature women online who are stylish, creative, and daring. Here are some of my favorite fashion and style blogs for women over 40.
40+ Style by Sylvia van de Logt is a fashion and beauty website for women over 40 dedicated to showing you how to look gorgeous and experiment with fashion and style.
Style at a Certain Age is a fashion blog by native Midwesterner Beth Djalai, who hopes to encourage women to embrace their own personal style. Her blog includes versatile and affordable preppy classics.
Style Crone is a fashion blog for older women by Judith Boyd, a 74-year-old from Denver, CO, who is a true style original with a passion for vintage clothing and charming hats.
Fabulous After 40 is a fashion website created by Deborah Boland, a former HGTV producer. Frustrated by a lack of fashion options for women over 40, her goal is to help women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond to look “age-amazing.”
Not Dressed as Lamb is a fashion blog by Catherine Summers, a 44-year-old Brit, who hopes to encourage women to ditch antiquated notions of “age appropriate” dressing. The blog covers her personal style, aging issues, health, beauty, and fitness.
Not Dead Yet Style is by Patti Gibbons, a 60-something fashion blogger from Florida, who has refused to “recede gracefully” as she grows older. Her personal style is casual but always put-together with a love for jewelry and red lipstick.
Over 50 Feeling 40 is a fashion and lifestyle blog by Pam Lutrell, who reinvented herself following her 50th birthday. She transformed herself from frumpy to fabulous, and now is dedicated to inspiring women over 50 to look and feel their best.
