      At 40 we still want to look our best.
      What do we wear?
      Do we still want to look sexy or do we go for classy?

      Nothing beats the fitted sophistication of a sheath dress. In a not-too-girly color like gray, navy or black style, this silhouette can even feature add-ons like a pretty neckline without looking frivolous. Wear it by itself for warm weather; add a belted cardigan and tights for cooler weather.

        • I love sheath dresses. I used to wear them all the time until my waist thickened. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to wear them again when I lose some of this extra weight.

        • I used to dress up for work all the time.  Since I’ve been working for my husband, the last few years I wear sun dresses or jeans to work everday since our office is casual.  I have a closet full of suit’s and slacks that I need to take to goodwill.

        • I wouldn’t be caught dead in a sheath, it makes certain women look very old fashioned. If I wear anything it’s twill or chino pants - pleated or straight front; but our office is summer wear all year round thankfully (just no shorts, leggings or shredded pants), so I’ve got every type of jeans you can imagine.

        • Thank God we do not have to wear suits everyday!!!  I think it’s boring and you can still look professional without going the boring route.  

          We can wear kakki’s any slacks....our financial institutions’s shirts that they provided us....which are a top with a cardigen.....or you can wear dresses...or suits...but you might be overdressed.   No open toe shoes...no tank tops..or sleeveless shirts.  

          It’s a doable dress code!
