Dressing up knows no age!

Possibly one of the most dated concepts of our time is the need for age-appropriateness when it comes to dressing up. Women in particular are policed for what they wear, from early on in childhood all the way to their sunset years. How often do we hear a woman, let’s say a mother, get judged for “not dressing like a mom?” There’s a strange implication that mothers (or any woman beyond her 20s for that matter), should take to a more toned-down approach to dressing up, devoid of colors, patterns, and, most especially, skin-baring pieces.

But today’s generation of ladies don’t subscribe to that point of view. We’ve discovered inspirational women over 40 who share their love for dressing up online. They’re testaments to the fact that having fun with fashion has no age limit. Kiss age-appropriateness goodbye with these well-dressed women.

10 Stylish Women Over 40 Who Prove That Dressing Up Knows No Age:

1. Vicki Belo

Dr. Vicki Belo runs a serious business, but her personal style is a ball of pure fun. There’s an almost child-like spirit to everything she wears, putting together colors, patterns, and textures (most of the time, all at once). She shows us that whether you’re getting dolled up for brunch or dressed down for travel, there’s always a way to inject a little playfulness to your outfits.

2. Carla Rockmore 

Carla Rockmore is a fashion designer whose motto is “celebrating the self-expression of 50+ through fashion, fun, & fierceness.” She does so by sharing snippets of herself getting dressed up in her covetable two-story closet, all while giving fashion advice (to her 1.2 million TikTok followers) on silhouette balancing, color matching, accessorizing, sale shopping, and beyond. And though you’ll unlikely ever rock golden knee-high boots as fabulously as she can, she’ll inspire you to at least try.

3. Aivee Teo

The videos of Dr. Aivee Teo walking into her clinic have become ubiquitous in the social media world. We love to frequent this mother-of-three’s page for workwear inspiration, as she takes to more office-appropriate silhouettes for her daily outfits. She always does it in a way that’s out of the ordinary, with a patterned pant, chunky shoe, or even an eye-catching headband that keeps everything from looking too ho-hum.

4. Mimi Que

A scroll through this mother’s Instagram feed takes you on a trip through picturesque scenes and one colorfully-dressed lady. Enter Mimi Que, a woman who’s wardrobe is quite literally the definition of “sunshine.” She has a penchant for groovy ‘70s prints, vibrant hues, and eye-catching accessories that’ll definitely inspire a woman (of any age) to dress with a little more spunk.

5. Rissa Mananquil-Trillo

Having had her start in the modeling industry, Rissa Mananquil-Trillo knows a thing or two about fashion. We love her feminine-contemporary sense of style, and most especially her liking towards Filipino brands, which she always proudly banners. Something that we also love about her Instagram snaps are her masterful poses. No one can do it as well as she can, but we’re still taking notes!

6. Grece Ghanem

You’ll never see a gray-haired woman (or anyone for that matter) rock a band tee as well as this content creator. Grece Ghanem shows us that when it comes to fashion in your 50s, there are no rules—bring on the band tees, cargo pants, crop tops, and more! For as long as they’re worn with confidence, they’ll always work for you.

7. Marie Lozano

If you don’t have photos of Marie Lozano saved under your “beachwear inspiration'' Instagram Collections, you’re missing out. This journalist-slash-content creator has the art of oceanside dressing mastered, with a collection of skin-baring bikinis, coverups, and cut-out dresses that a girl could only dream of. If there’s one woman who can kiss “cover up, you’re a mom” goodbye, it’s this influential mama.

8. Happy Ongpauco-Tiu

If you’re looking for outfit ideas for your next weekend brunch, look to this well-dressed lady. Happy Ongpauco-Tiu is a restaurateur, so she can teach you a thing or two about dressing up for your celebrations. She has a penchant for colorful clothes, always spotted in pieces of cheerful brights. We love how her looks are never complete without accessorizing too, be it with an interesting hat or a stack of arm bracelets.

9. Lyn Slater

Think of the opposite of what’s associated with a 60-year-old woman’s wardrobe and you’ll have your finger on Lyn Slater’s style. This now 67-year-old is better known for her moniker “accidental icon,” which is a tribute to how she accidentally fell into the world of fashion blogging and content creation. She couldn’t relate to any of the influencers at the time, so she became one herself. Now, our eyes are blessed with her fierce streetstyle OOTDs.

10. Jennie Epperson

One of the very first mothers who took to content creating, Jennie Epperson has been on our radar for years. We love her taste-making pursuits (we’ve learned plenty of interior styling tips from her), and of course, her sense of style. You’ll never see her wearing outfits that don’t have a bit of an edge, whether through colorful sneakers or a pair of distressed jeans.
