You'll look like you belong on the cover of Vogue, instead of living in the past when wearing a leather jacket in your 40's.

Red Tie Waist Dress with a Cropped Moto Jacket

Paired with a tie waist dress, it adds an interesting feminine touch. Note that while you can show off your legs, avoid pairing it with skintight trousers or shorter skirts that leave little to the imagination when you sit down, opt for patterned pants or pencil skirts in fabrics such as silk or rayon instead. If you want to add height, wear stacked heel booties in black leather.

Blue Asymmetric Biker Jacket Over a Skirt

Paired with an asymmetric blouse, biker jackets are a fabulous way to look edgy and convey street-style all at once. It's not that you can't still pull off biker jackets in your 40s, but you should think about how it will look on your body type. To avoid looking like a person trying to recapture past glories, try pairing your jacket with leather leggings or skinny jeans rather than black tights. Pro tip: If you don't own any leather leggings or skinny jeans, buy some now! You can never have too many pairs of pants.

Green Biker Jacket with Red Pants

Another big trend that can sometimes look bad on women over 40 is matching, but there are ways to pull it off. A green biker jacket with red pants is one way to accomplish that. The trick is your colors need to be in contrasting locations on the color wheel. Green and red are opposites because green sits between blue and yellow on a color wheel, while red sits between orange and purple. As long as you pair these two colors with pieces in different shades of each color, for example, a light green jacket with dark red pants, it should turn out well.

White T-Shirt and Jeans with A Colored Saffiano Leather Jacket

To look sharp, opt for the classic look of a white T-shirt and slim dark jeans, then add a colored leather jacket with Saffiano leather construction, it's more durable than traditional suede. If you're unsure about your style, opt for something classic like black or navy instead of bright colors. Of course, there are no complex rules here. Just make sure you know your style before buying anything that might be too risky or may not fit into your wardrobe. This way, you won't end up with buyer’s remorse.
