What to wear on Valentine’s Day over 40

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Like each year the question is what to wear. It seemed so easy to dress for Valentine’s Day back then in our 20s. A mini skirt, big cleavage, we were young, our skin glowed, and we could have even worn a potato sack, we felt sexy and hot.

Don’t go that route! Over 40, we are still young, sexy and hot. However, we don’t need a mini skirt and big cleavage to show it off. We have learned that a little teaser is so much more than putting everything on display just up front.

In fashion over 40, less is more. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet

In this post, I will show you some ageless style inspirations how to look your best on the big day. Since what you will wear depends on your plans and many other factors, I try to cover several Valentine’s Day dressing situations like going out for dinner, a Valentine’s Dance, a movie, etc.. Last year, I wrote a post on what to consider in picking a Valentine’s Day outfit.

Don’t let the right outfit be a random thing. Wear the right look in every situation by looking up what to wear when in How to Dress for Success in Midlife. Buy my book now.
