Lost in Translation: Affordable Style for the 40+ Woman

This Sequin Blazer by ASOS Curve is the perfect versatile piece for us.  It can be worn with a pencil skirt or skinny slacks and heels for fine dining, an art show or hubby's important dinner with the boss.
For women age 40 and beyond, it can sometimes feel like our style choices are limited to department stores, plus size specialty shops and Walmart.  Not that there's anything wrong with these choices, but don't you feel slightly odd walking around Forever 21 with your collagen blessed, size nothing, younger counterparts?  I know I do, but I go in anyway to partake in their incredibly affordable finds. Regardless of how it makes us feel, there is fashion for us to be found in places like Forever 21, H&M, ASOS and many others.  Using some of the individual pieces these stores offer, we can create complete, age appropriate looks and have fun doing it.  Check out the photos in the post for fabulous fashion finds for the 40+ woman.

This Scuba Knit Midi Skirt by Forever 21 (also offered in plus sizes) would be perfect with the sequin blazer shown above.  Add a low heel pump, cami, clutch and statement necklace for a complete look.  For a daytime look, pair with a tee, flats or sandals and a statement bangle for a comfy, yet stylish presentation.
This geometric statement necklace by H&M is for us!  Perfect for a day at the museum with the kids or a rare night out with the girls or hubby.
Show your individuality with this Fringed Backpack by H&M.  Perfect for a day at the park with the family.  Pair with boyfriend jeans, a comfy tee and espadrilles for a stylish, on the go look.
This Baroque Paisley Slit Maxi Dress by Love Culture screams date night or lunching ladies and it's long enough to conceal the slit when walking or sitting.
Simple pieces like this Maxi Wrap Dress by Forever 21 Plus is what 40+ women should look for when shopping in popular, trendy, affordable retail stores that are geared towards younger demographics.  Pair this with a floppy hat for a day trip to the winery or by itself for entertaining at home.  Also comes in black.
