My Favorite Over 40 Fashion Blogs

After my post about MORE Magazine I started thinking about the inspiration I find on the Internet. While I don’t think blogs are a worthy replacement to a quality magazine, I find my regular style inspiration comes from my peers.

Inspiration doesn’t have to come from someone your same age, but as we age our tastes do change and it’s wonderful to see fellow women on the other side of 40 find their personal style and share it with the world. Blogs make it so you can see how a woman thousands of miles away was creative with the same jacket or a similar dress you have in your own closet, and can empower you to be a bit more creative and personal with what you choose to wear every day.

While I follow the fashion blogs of several chic women over 40, I kept this post just to those who live in the United States and have blogs that primarily focus on their personal style and what they wear. I see quite a growth in over 40 blogs in the UK and Australia but the US has yet to catch up. There’s some truly terrific style here in the States and I wanted to showcase it in hopes it may inspires some fellow Americans to embrace their own style, follow and promote these bloggers, and show that our country doesn’t believe style has an expiration date!

    I’d really love a similar list for UK fashion bloggers. As an expat here, it’s hard to know what to follow and US bloggers so often wear clothes hard to access this side of the pond.

    Great list. Love this! I’m looking for 35+ year old beauty vloggers….anyone to recommend?

    Even though I am not yet over 40, I still follow a number of these blogs/instagrams because I think the ladies over 40 are more stylish and more practical than the blogs run by the younger ladies. Some of the blogs/instagram feeds run by women in their 20s are really just them modeling free clothes they get from retailers and trying to get you to buy it. Plus, many of them are so skinny (like size zero skinny) that what they are wearing would never look good on an average sized woman. There also is no style or creativity there at all. The stuff they are modeling is more appropriate for a college student then a working woman. Since these younger ladies don’t actually have “real” full time jobs, its understandable why they can’t relate to a woman who must be dressed to work in an office each day.

    These are all amazing women! I follow several of them, and will be checking out the rest. Even though I am no longer in the “40” category, I don’t want to dress older. Age is an attitude, and I am keeping mine young!

    It’s funny, every time I look at pictures of what I’m supposed to be wearing “at my age” I think “those women are so much older than me!” I can’t figure out if I have good genetics or if I’m delusional…

    What I would love is a magazine or blog that tells you, specifically, what the trends are at any given time. I won’t necessarily follow them, but tell me clearly what people are wearing right now, and not vague guesses designed to make me buy ALL THE THINGS…Is the IT look red lips? Purple eyeshadow? French-rolled jeans?

    • March 3, 2016 / 1:36 pm

      This is tough because we’re not really in a time where trends are so defined. While I love that most anything goes and the world is celebrating independent style, it’s hard to figure out how to be stylish and current with such a mishmosh. You bring up a great point, one I’d like to address in the future if I can clarify my thoughts. Also there is the ability to do updates – not necessarily hot or not, but instead of this consider that for a style refresh or a more modern take on what you already own/wear/like.

    Thank you so much for this post! As a 49 year old (gulp) who wants to still be stylish, but not mutton dressed as lamb, these are all amazing women. I love the diversity!

    This is so helpful, because I can see the different personal styles and pick the ones that appeal to me!

      I am in awe of Erica’s skills.

      • March 3, 2016 / 1:33 pm

        Right? The clothes she creates floor me. She’s also a great Instagram follow to see her sewing skills, her inspiration, but also she’s inspiring with her fitness updates!

    I”m pinning this one. I do read some of these (or follow on Instagram) but there’s so much more I can learn.
    I’ve learned from various style blogs: today I’m wearing skinny jeans (even though I’m not) hot pink sweater with indigo print scarf and a hot pink coat. A lot of color for me who usually wears black and beige but I’m liking it.

    Georgette at Grown and Curvy Woman is a fan of Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and now I am a fan of Grown and Curvy Woman (and so many more of these blogs!)

    • March 3, 2016 / 10:15 am

      I got to hang with Georgette at BlogHer and can say that if she seems great on her blog it’s only showing a percentage of her complete awesomeness. She was by far one of the highlights of that conference for me!

  28. March 3, 2016 / 10:01 am

    Thanks so much for the mention!

  29. March 3, 2016 / 9:37 am
