During the holidays, you may want to dress up a little to get into the festive spirit or you may get a last minute invite to a party and you need something to wear. In this video I am going to show you some quick and easy ways to dress up an outfit for women over 40.

Dressing up an outfit is easier than ever before. Fashion these days is about mixing dressy with casual, mixing bling with the every day and adding glam to daywear pieces.

Here are some ways to dress up an outfit with style:

Dressed up jeans: Jeans are so easy to dress up these days. Instead of wearing just a tee shirt, team your jeans with a metallic top and a pair of heels. To dress it up further, simply add a jacket. Want to really dress up this look? You can switch your regular jeans for a pair of leather pants faux leather pants or leather look jeans, add a sexy pair of heels and bling accessories and you are ready to go.

Dress up your dress look: I love dresses because they are so versatile.  I can wear dress them down with flat boots and a denim jacket or dress it up with a lace body stocking underneath and heeled boots. Or I can dress it up further by adding a faux fur stole and a silver clutch.

The little black dress: Believe it or not, I’m not a huge fan of the little black dress. So many women opt for this option, but here are some fun and interesting ways to dress up your LBT so you stand out in a crowd. This leather number is closest I get to a LBT. Instead of wearing regular black tights, why not go for something fun. In this example, I am wearing a pair of shimmer tights and instead of regular black shoes, I’m opting for a silver brogue. To take this look further, wear a statement jacket over it. This is a great opportunity to add a bit of color to your look, which I’m a huge fan of.
