Best Party Dresses for Women Over 40
Some women find it hard to buy dresses after their 40s. The reason is that what is flattering for a 30-year-old woman is not always flattering for a 40-year-old. The good news? Women in their 40s are at the peak of their beauty. Besides, they are usually independent and mature, and therefore live their life to the fullest – and dress accordingly!
Here are a few suggestions of party dresses to buy if you’re a woman over 40:
Black Bow Back Midi Dress (£20.00)
At this exciting stage of your life, the all-time classics are probably a better pick than the more modern or trendy designs. And what’s more classic than a black party dress? This is a simple and sexy design with a juvenile twist – a bow over the open back – that doesn’t lose its elegance even though.
This is the type of dress that every woman should have in her wardrobe: a timeless classic that will never go out of fashion, great to go out for dinner and other informal occasions.
Emerald Satin Midi Dress (£45.00)
Choosing midi dresses instead of mini length ones is a good tip after you’re 40-years-old. Take a look at this knee-length green gown. It will never let you down, whether you wear it at a christening or birthday party or when your better half takes you out for dancing.
The high-low skirt, wrap-over v-neck style and a shirred waistband will make you move like a light breeze…
Plus Size Champagne Midi Dress (£75.00)
Let me introduce you to one of our most fabulous evening dresses with sleeves. This flawless plus size party dress will suit women in their 40s like a glove! The lively champagne colour and modern geo=print sequin design will never go unnoticed. The direction of the lines helps to create an illusion of verticality whilst the semi-circles enhance your beautiful curves.
If you're ready to love your curves find the evening dresses that are perfect for you in our collection of plus size dresses.
Champagne Asymmetric Midi Dress (£49.00)
Bodycon dresses (also known as figure-hugging dresses) are very flattering for women over 40. There’s something magnificent and sophisticated about a white sequin dress. Whatever it is that makes them irresistible, does the same for this light champagne tone gown. You will look as charming as a crystal in this playful off-one shoulder dress with hanging shiny sequins.
Navy Angel Wing Midi Dress (£63.00)
Here’s another figure-hugging dress that’s perfect for women over 40. This flattering gown is a unique party dress, full of charismatic details, thanks to its angel wings combined with the beautiful lace and sequins embroidery work in the bodice. If you’re looking for sequin dresses, this dark blue dress is perfect for wedding guests, cocktails and semi-formal occasions.
Real beauty shines from within; when you’re happy, peaceful and in love with the woman you are. After you stop drooling over this selection of dresses, rediscover your inner diamond with the items that put a smile on your face.
