How you dress your age

People say I dress too young. How can I dress my age without looking frumpy?

Hitting your 40s doesn't mean you have to toss your stylish clothes in favor of polyester pantsuits. There is a way to mix youthful pieces with classic ones to create a chic, age-appropriate look. Here's how:

Balance classic with trendy. If you wear a slinky top, for example, pair it with tailored trousers. Or mix a slim-cut sweater or crisp oxford with a skirt in a trendy cut or fabric. The key is to maintain a good balance between timeless and of-the-moment.

Invest in accessories. Your bag and shoes should be of high quality. Even if they have a trendy shape, they'll look mature and stylish if they are made of top-notch materials and craftsmanship.

Skip teen-style clothes. Pieces like very-low-cut jeans, cutout tops and lace-up pants look great on teen-agers  but not on anyone else! Skip these items altogether.
Add a jacket. A fluid or tailored blazer adds instant sophistication to whatever you wear it with.
