In your 20s, juxtapose colors and fabrics for a personalized boho chic seasonal look. Try a soft wool hat paired with a silky jewel-toned scarf or an animal-print pony hair purse with a cashmere glove. Your coat for the season should be on-trend in a neutral, goes-with-everything shade. Try a gray suede or wool military-inspired jacket. To keep it fresh and youthful, stick with jackets that hit at the hip. Invest in a durable handbag in a solid color and stylish shape that will take you from November to March.
In your 30s, take it back to black. This year’s motto chic style is perfect for a 30-something girl on the go. Simply create a solid canvas to pop jewelry, bags, scarves, hats and gloves. Remember that black does not equal basic. Start with a versatile black coat with some serious edge – an exaggerated shoulder, asymmetry, an unconventional collar, studs or hardware. Pair a black boot with a slim fit pant to continue the line, elongating the leg. Then add some splash. Throw on a sizable cocktail ring, add a bold over sized clutch, pick a bright scarf or hat, pull on some sexy leather biker gloves in an unexpected shade like hot pink or lipstick red.
In your 40s, go for a regal chic look. You’ve got the wisdom and experience to carry a more opulent style (whether or not you intend to spend a lot for it). Shop local milliners for a statement hat that’s equal parts head-warmer and conversation-starter. Try on luxe leather over-the-knee boots that will simultaneously up your style quotient while shielding your legs from the cold. Pick a purse that’s perfectly-polished and classic for day, sparkly and ornate for evening. Cinch a coat with a beautiful belt to enhance curves and also suggest stature.
