What's Age-Appropriate?

What should you be "allowed" to wear if you’re over 40?

Bellissima hoop earrings, $18.What to Wear…...to Play Dress-Up Like a Grown-UpThe low-key glow of this perfectly tailored Boss Black cotton and silk sheath, $650, is what makes first-class fashion timeless. We like the demure scoop neck, knee-grazing hem, flattering princess seams and — most of all — the clever inseam pockets to fiddle in at cocktail parties. Liz Claiborne’s faux-topaz bracelet, $35, is one of those steals you’ll kick yourself for not buying (it’s that good). Beverly Feldman matte gold and pewter sequined flats, $195. Rafé New York shell-and-bead embellished mesh bag, $225.Originally published in MORE magazine, May 2006.

Can you feature women that do not have plastic surgery that they are happy with the way they look. I would like to think that every women likes themselves the way they are.

I guess I need to subscribe to a magazine for middle-income women over 40 since all the items you suggest are completely out of my budget for clothing and accessories. I will never spend $550 for a skirt, $195 for a belt or $485 for sunglasses. That's over $1000 that can go in my 401k. Come on MORE, if you are targeting the wealthy class only, you are doing a good job.
