6 Things Women Over 40 Shouldn't Wear

You may look half your age, but if you're over 40 there are certain things you should never wear--no matter what.

That's the word from fashion guru Tim Gunn, who serves as the mentor on the hit reality series "Project Runway" that premiered on Bravo in 2004.

When Gunn was a guest on the "Oprah" show, he laid down the law to the over-40 crowd.

If you're over 40, you should never wear:

  1. Horizontal stripes
  2. Jackets that hit at mid-thigh
  3. Pleated pants
  4. Double-breasted blazers
  5. Capri-length pants
  6. Low-rise jeans

Makeup artist Bobbi Brown, who is about to turn 50, says the key to looking beautiful as we age is not what you put on your face, but rather how you care for your body. "It's about [how you're] eating," she says. "It's about exercise more than anything else."

She warned that skin care is key for older women. As we age, our skin gets drier, so it's important to switch from a powder blush to a cream rouge.
