The timing is right! The Shopbop Event of the Season Sale is on now through Sunday. I know my closet is lacking some of the fall 2019 trends, so I will balance my wardrobe with my most desired pieces. With just a few new silhouettes, prints, shapes and textures I can update and refresh my look for fall. I found the best fall trends that are fabulous for women over 40. I am certain you will like them too. And with this sale happening now at Shopbop, the savings on these fashion forward items are considerable!

Stock Up on The Best Fall Trends of 2019
Some of the best fall 2019 trends for women over 40 (as we predicted) include Strong Shoulders, Nipped Waists, Belts, Matrix Leather, Billowy Sleeves, High Waist Silhouettes and Snakeskin Prints. Well I found them all (including additional options) at Shopbop.
Strong Shoulders, Nipped Waist
This ASTR blazer offers it all. It has a strong shoulder, nipped waist silhouette, with a menswear-inspired houndstooth fabric in a longer boyfriend style jacket. Oversized boyfriend jackets are back. But this one is ideal because it is fitted. You can wear it casually with jeans or leather leggings (since it is long) or accentuate the waist even more and add a belt. You will see a lot of belted jacket styles this season, too. The emphasis is on the waist and the broader shoulders will make it appear smaller.
Here is the perfect belt for your jacket! You may need to invest in a new belt that fits at the waist instead of on your hips this season. This Tibi patent leather belt works over a jacket and on the waist of your jeans or pants. It is 2″ wide so it should fit most waistbands. It serves dual purposes and comes in caramel or black with a clear buckle. I’ve been on the lookout for a belt like this, so it’s a winner! The only problem is deciding on the color.
We were thrilled about this runway trend! Who doesn’t like lots of slick, cool black leather? You can get the look with vegan and faux leather too. This Blank Denim Scorpio Coat will bring you into the Matrix at a terrific price with a ton of style. For the complete Matrix look, remember to wear it with all black.
Billowy sleeves and balloon sleeves floated down the runways on models for fall 2019. This trend is an easy way to update your look for fall. Billowy sleeve blouses add a lot of drama and are comfortable to wear. You can tuck them in, belt them or leave them out. This Shoshanna Janay Top comes in a gorgeous colorful print fabric that you can wear for cocktails with black pants, for work under a jacket or with a skirt, or even with distressed denim jeans.
High Waist Jeans or Pants
This may take some getting used to (again) but I’m loving high waisted jeans. These aren’t like our denim jeans from the 80s and 90s, because now we have stretch denim! That 1% to 2% stretch make them so much more comfortable and you can actually breath. If you have not tried on a pair of high waisted pants, you must! They are flattering and suck you in a bit. They are also ideal because you can wear some of your shorter tops and sweaters once again without worrying about your stomach showing. They work best with billowy sleeve blouses (see above). Something like these Nobody Denim jeans with a medium wide leg would make a totally on-trend addition to your wardrobe.
As you probably know, animal prints are a huge trend. An easy way for women over 40 to rock it is with shoes and accessories. Sure we love leopard, tiger and zebra prints but snakeskin is another classic. We found many shoes and boots in snakeskin prints for fall. I love these rainbow-colored Freda Slavador snake print loafers. They are one pair you will wear to death and you can actually walk in them! The heel is a perfect 1″ height. Just be prepared for a lot of compliments from strangers.
