Dating tips for those over 40
To get the best fashion tips for this age, we talked to style expert Kim Johnson Gross, creator of the Chic Simple line of books.
According to her, it just takes looking at your wardrobe and beauty habits with a critical eye and finding what works for you. We may be becoming empty nesters, divorcing, starting new jobs," said Gross.
Hence, if you are planning for dating at 40 then do remember confidence is the key.
But, being confident is not such an easy task, especially on your first date.
Let’s take an example- you’ve planned a date with a wonderful person, you are all set for it, have booked an great venue but all of a sudden a sense of fear arises in your mind- what if nothing turns out to be the way you planned? That sense of fear soon takes the form of nervousness, and at the end of the day you are left with no confidence.
To avoid such circumstances, you need to realize that dating after 40 does not change anything.
This is because, in such a scenario you are with someone who is aware of your real personality and those values your likes or dislikes.
And the best part is that, since you will be dating online then you will get to know more about the person in detail which would make it easier for you when you date them in real.
One of the most challenging aspects for women over 40 when it comes to fashion, is how to dress for all the changes that are occurring. And even if you are in the best shape of your life — Gross gives 50-something Oprah as an example— your body is physiologically changing no matter what, from thinning hair to softer, duller skin with less natural glow.
The key to dealing with the changes and being your best is to refresh your look, said Gross, who is currently working on a book about style over 40.

The way you dress, talk or even express yourself; everything revolves under the power of confidence.
You are still the same person with an amazing personality plus a beautiful sense of maturity.
