Fashion bloggers over 40 showcasing what you wear instead of worst fashion trends of 2023 for women over 40.

Happy Monday gorgeous ladies!  If you’re wondering what some of the hottest trends are of 2023 then you’ve come to the right spot!  I’m sharing the 5 WORST FASHION TRENDS for women over 40 in today’s post along with what you can wear instead to ensure LOOKING and FEELING like the best, most confident version of yourself.

Fun fact, I actually heard another over 40 influencer say you shouldn’t wear trend #5 which I actually wear on occasion so take what you like and leave the rest.  I always say you should get dressed based on WHAT YOU WANT TO WEAR and WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL GOOD, not on what OTHERS want or think you should wear.  Remember, fashion should be fun and it’s a way for YOU to express yourself! So whatever makes you feel like the best version of yourself, that’s what you should wear, every single day!  Keep scrolling for the 5 WORST FASHION TRENDS for women over 40 (in my expert opinion) along with what you can wear instead.

WORST TREND: LOW-RISE BAGGY JEANS SWAP FOR HIGH-WAISTED WIDE LEG JEANS:

First on my list of the worst fashion trends of 2023 for women over 40 are low rise baggy jeans. If you want to look frumpy then this would be the trend to pick! I highly recommend avoiding low rise denim and opt for a pair of high-waisted wide-leg jeans instead. The high waist is so much more flattering and the wide leg style will make your legs look miles long. These frame jeans are my current favorite pair of wide leg denim and I’m wearing a size 24.

WORST TREND: BRA-TOPS WITH BLAZERS SWAP FOR SLIGHTLY CROPPED TOPS WITH BLAZERS:

The next trend I won’t be doing in 2023 is wearing a bra top with a blazer. I always err on the side of caution when it comes to wearing a look that exposes skin and this is personally too much for me. Instead, I would pair a cropped sweater such as this one from Revolve with a fabulous blazer. I would also make sure to pair it with high-waisted denim so there is only a sliver of skin showing. I’m wearing an XS in this cozy sweater.

WORST TREND: BAGGY ALL OVER SWAP FOR ONE PIECE OF YOUR LOOK BEING OVER-SIZED:

Trend number 3 on my list of the worst fashion trends of 2023 for women over 40 is wearing baggy all over. I find this just makes me look like I’m drowning in fabric! If you already have a petite frame, wearing baggy jeans with an oversized blazer and a loose shirt is going to completely overtake your silhouette. My suggestion is to go for ONE oversized item, such as this blazer by Reformation, and pair it with a fitted layer underneath as well as on the bottom. I’m wearing an XS in this perfectly oversized blazer.

Over 40 Dallas fashion blogger wearing leather pants instead of NO pants which is definetly one of the worst fashion trends of 2023 for women over 40.

WORST TREND: NO-PANTS (YES THIS IS A TREND LOL) SWAP FOR HIGH-WAISTED PANTS:

I know. It’s hard to believe this is actually a trend! I have seen some women absolutely rock this look, but the majority of women are likely not going to try this, and that is just fine! I personally would rather wear a fabulous pair of high-waisted pants such as these Veronica Beard vegan leather flares. They are insanely flattering, in fact, these are the number one most slimming pants I own! I’m wearing a size 24 and they fit true to size.

Over 40 Dallas fashion influencer wearing small cutouts top instead of a top with large cutouts which is the final worst fashion trend of 2023 for women over 40.

WORST TREND: MASSIVE CUT-OUTS SWAP FOR MINIMAL CUT-OUTS TOPPED WITH A JACKET:

This is the trend I heard another over 40 influencer say they would never wear, and what stuck with me the most was they said NO ONE over 40 should wear this. So I took my own advice and asked myself, do I feel good when I wear this trend? I’m sure you can guess, but my answer was 100% YES! This means I WEAR IT AND ROCK IT AND LOVE IT and feel confident when I do at age 49, proving AGE IS JUST A NUMBER AND STYLE KNOWS NO AGE! Wearing this cutout sweater from Revolve underneath a jacket is the perfect way to feel comfortable and still rock this trend. I’m wearing a small and I find it fits true to size.
