5 Stunning Trends Cool Women Over 45 Are Wearing Now

Ready for a digestible roundup of stunning trends? Because these ladies ahead are the queens of dressing to the nines day in and day out. Whenever I am in need of a sartorial pick-me-up, I always turn to two of my favorite It girls who just so happen to be over 45. To me, age is irrelevant when it comes to fashion and style, and the below images will prove exactly that. When it comes to the women’s style featured here, it is clear that they always pay attention to the finer details of an outfit. After taking a deep dive into their recent looks, I was able to identify five trends that resulted in a stunning outfit every time.

Ahead, discover the stunning trends these women are taking a strong liking to right now. In this context, stunning doesn’t have to mean unapproachable or “fancy.” Instead, the stunning nature of each trend is revealed in the little things like the architectural chain strap on a handbag or the rich-looking addition of a milky white coat. Scroll down to read exactly what we mean.
