Over 40 and FABULOUS: Our Favorite Dress Picks


You’re engaged and over 40. Your first task: Dismiss all notions and stigmas regarding your age and adhering to the “frumpy, modest and mature” bridal code.  Sure, the days of sporting a full-skirted ball gown with endless embellishment are probably behind you. Who cares? It’s time to step into a new kind of sexy — confident, classy and elegant.

From intricate beadwork to plunging Vs, sleeves and cropped skirts, we’ve gathered some dresses suited for the over-40-and-fabulous bride.

TIED UP: A high neck tied in a billowing bow is a modest yet stunning detail.
