What Should 40 Year Old Women Wear To Church This Spring
Spring has sprung and you’re looking to put your best foot forward! I am here to share with you a run-down of our top ways to dress for church this Spring. Nobody is perfect and I definitely recommend checking out these outfit ideas for your next church event.
Women between the ages of 40 and 50 have a unique set of fashion issues. What to wear, what not to wear, what is appropriate and what is not are some of the things they have to deal with on a regular basis. With so many different options, it can be difficult to know what is right for this particular time in life. However, sticking with the basics will always work. The same rules that applied when you were twenty apply now when you’re forty but at this point in your life things should become more subtle as well as more sophisticated.
A woman in her forties should be focusing on fit, comfort and versatility. You should wear things that hug the body and make you feel good about yourself. You want to wear the things that make you feel beautiful and confident. At this age, your body is not what it used to be at 20 or 25. Changes are normal, but it’s important not to overdo it with tight-fitting clothes either. For example, don’t wear a pair of jeans that leave nothing to the imagination if your weight has changed significantly since you wore those jeans the first time around. Look for clothes with adjustable waists or buy a new pair of jeans that fit you just right.
Best Church Fashion Tips For This Spring:
1) Pick a floral print that’s perfect for spring: lilies, daisies, tulips — all of these are blooming nice and early this year!
2) Pair with an elegant white shirt: makes the outfit feel less casual, more Sunday appropriate. Bonus points if it can be worn as a blouse for non-church events too.
3) Stick with muted tones: bright yellow, baby blue and pink just scream spring!
4) No flats! The outfit will look incomplete without a pair of heels. But if you’re wearing something long and flowing instead of a dress, then you can get away with sandals or platforms.
5) Don’t be afraid to show some skin: church is the perfect place to show off your assets. It’s all about what you feel the most confident in that day. Remember that dressing modestly doesn’t mean covering-up your body; it’s about making sure what your wearing is appropriate for the venue at hand.
What To Wear To Church When You Are Over 40
As people age they tend to tend to get more casual in their dress. Many people have asked, “What should I wear to church.” Some people like to take the time and plan out what they are going to wear before they go. This is not necessary. You will never be able to see what you really look like when you are wearing something that is too tight or a skirt that has too much flare in it. The best way you can know what you will feel comfortable and what looks good on you is trial and error. Try on different pieces of clothing that are similar in color, fit, fabric, style and length. Try to pair something that is short and tight with something that is long and flowy.
Most churches are pretty casual. There are no strict rules as to what you should wear. Wear whatever makes you feel good and most importantly, what makes you feel comfortable. If your body type is pear-shaped, it may be more beneficial to wear a skirt or dress instead of pants or jeans. If you are full-figured, then layering will be your best bet as this will make your body look a little thinner by creating an optical illusion. For example, try wearing a long jacket over a cute blouse or sweater set so it will cover up the part of your body that you do not like about yourself. Also, you could wear a skinny belt along with your top so it will make your waist look smaller. Another thing that women can do to help their body look better is to wear boots or heels. This will elongate your legs and make your body look thinner.
While it is not necessary to dress up every Sunday, if you are attending a service like the Bible study or choir, then take the time to think about what you will wear. You may want to bring a change of clothes with you so that if something should happen, you can change and go back out wearing whatever looks good on you. Another thing to keep in mind is that church can get very hot. If you have a dress or skirt, then your best bet is to wear it. If you are comfortable in a pair of jeans and tank top, then by all means wear those. As long as you do not go overboard and wear something that you do not feel comfortable in.
As the new year approaches, we make many changes in our life whether it be with our jobs, personal relationships or finances. For women, don’t forget to reflect on what you would want to change about yourself this new year and this may lead you to getting something new for yourself or making some changes if what you are wearing now no longer makes you feel good.
