While age has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, we’re often intrigued by the items women over 40, in particular, rely on in their day-to-day. After all, this set often has that top-notch experience in building a well-rounded wardrobe. While we recently highlighted the basics and loungewear essentials women over 40 swear by, we thought we’d focus next on some shopping-specific insights if you are shopping at the moment. And given that Zara and stores like it are often the go-tos of many, we thought we’d break down the affordable shops one over-40 fashion influencer, Mette Sorrig, is into.
While Sorrig fills her vibrant IG feed with a variety of brands and designers, she often turns to more affordable lines for a few specific items. Sure, you’ll spot those trendier items in her photos, but Sorrig is also all about scooping up forward basics from stores like H&M and Mango (aside from Zara, of course).
Below, Sorrig is filling us in on the brands where she buys a lot of her staples—complete with a bit of shopping and outfit inspiration to note now or save for later.
H&M for Outerwear
"H&M always has good basic pieces that not only match the details and vibe of the season but are also classic enough to last for many years. My trench [pictured here] and other outerwear pieces in my wardrobe are both examples of this. Very chic pieces at an affordable price."
