Women Over 40 Know These Styling Tricks Will Make an Outfit More Fashionable

·3 mins read

We follow a range of over-40 influencers, in particular, for their seasoned sartorial point of view. Of course, age has absolutely nothing to do with what you should or shouldn't wear, but this set just gets it with their experience over the years fine-tuning a wardrobe. In fact, we specifically turn to women over 40 for unique styling inspiration.

On that note, we recently noticed quite the interesting style trick from one of our favorite follows, Renia Jaz behind @venswifestyle. For this outfit, rather than buying an asymmetric tank, she actually used one of her classic H&M tanks and moved the straps over her head to create her own asymmetric top. Yep, a genius trick to take the outfit to the next level.

With all that said, we thought we'd showcase more of this look below, along with other interesting styling tricks we're noting from some of our other favorite over-40 fashion people. Keep scrolling for a few tips that could make you outfit that more fashionable. And if you're in the mood to shop, you'll also discover some of the chic pieces these influencers love as well.
