Fashion Muses Over 40 Show Us How to Wear Today's Biggest Trends

Here at Who What Wear, we love being inspired by strong fashion-forward women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. From influencers to celebrities (Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss, we’re looking at you) to french fashion muses (hi, Caroline de Maigret and Emmanuelle Alt), there’s a confidence that lies in an over-40 woman's wardrobe. They have the wisdom to know what does and doesn’t make them feel themselves, they aren’t a slave to all the trends, and they’re able to pull off powerful statement pieces. So to inspire our next trending purchases, we’re turning to some of the chicest women aged 40 and above to show us how they wear today’s biggest trends.

All Beige Everything

From ecru to stone and camel and cream, beige is having a huge moment this season. Mix tones and textures from head to toe like chic fashion muse @msorrig.


Metallic fabrics were seen all over the S/S 19 runways, adding a touch of ’80s nostalgia to our outfits. Pair statement metallic pants with a white tee and sneakers like Caroline de Maigret to add a casual feel to the party piece.

Baggy Jeans

This season’s anti-skinny jeans are the must-have denim silhouette loved by the fashion crowd. Bonus if you pair them with a trending mock-croc bag like @venswifestyle did.

Roy G. Biv your outfit à la Victoria Beckham and opt for a trending pantsuit in a bright, vibrant hue.


How do you pull off the fringe trend? Opt for a Western-style coat to embrace the origins of the design like French muse Emmanuelle Alt.


Nail the fun, playful feather shoe trend like fierce fashion risk-taker Anna dello Russo.

Pleated Midi Skirt

Sarah Jessica Parker shows us that this season’s pleated midi skirts (seen all over the spring runways) are a must-have item to add to your wardrobe.
