If you’re going to take advice on women’s fashion over 40 you can trust the Nordstrom 6. With over 100 collective years of styling experience, we believe choosing the right closet essentials is the best way to make more outfits you love and feel great wearing. This month’s drop has 6 you can style all year.
FASHION OVER 40 CLOSET ESSENTIALS CHECKLIST
1 | VERONICA BEARD BLAZER
This is my most recommend wardrobe staple. It is so versatile and works with casual, dressy, or work outfits. I featured the Veronica Beard “Miller” blazer in my review of the Best Blazers for Your Body Type.
High-Low Outfit Combinations
Where to Buy Veronica Beard
You can usually find the “Miller” in most sizes and basic colors at Saks and Nordstrom. However, the best selection is at Veronica Beard. Their site offers the basic colors in gold and silver hardware options. They also stock sizes 00-24. New customers can share their email for a one-time discount and since basic colors never go on sale this is a great savings.
2 | Cinq a Sept Joggers
You’ll be just as big of a fan of their silk joggers. They are stylish, comfortable, and easy to dress up or down.
They are the perfect jogger for my Simple Summer Capsule Wardrobe checklist too.
Top 3 Joggers Colors
The images above are linked to Saks but you can find more colors at Nordstrom too.
Matchy Match Moment
The Nordstrom 6 shared some monochromatic outfit inspiration for fall with the international fashion company Who What Wear. I love the versatility of these Cinq a Sept Jogger sets.
3 | Marc Jacobs Bag
This month we fell hard for this tiny top-handle style that comes in black, white, and pink.
New From Marc Jacobs
4 | Paul Green Metallic Sneakers
Manufactured in Europe a stylish pair of metallic Paul green sneakers will last a lifetime. Whether you prefer gold, silver, or a mixed metallic I highly recommend a pair for travel. They are so comfortable. Fashion over 40 never felt so good.
Going Out Outfits With Sneakers
With a Suit
With a Sequin Skirt and Basic White Top
With Silky Joggers a White Blazer and Crop Top
5 | Vince Vest
A vest is one of 8 key pieces that make 32 outfits in my First Look at Fall Wardrobe. The style this season is tailored and meant to be styled solo or layered. VINCE runs generous so size down if you want to wear your vest as a top without anything under it. If you prefer a less tailored look try this knit style.

6| Rails Jean Skirt
This may be the same jean skirt you had when you were younger, but there are some new ways to style it now. There are so many that I included a jean skirt in my Free First Look at Fall Capsule Wardrobe.
Styling tip- If you choose a midi length like this be mindful of your proportions so you achieve the most flattering silhouette.
What to Wear With a Jean Skirt
Jean skirts look great with boots. If you opt for a closed-toe shoe, especially a flat, a pointed-toe style looks the best. Shoes that match your skin tone help keep your leg line long too.
