What do well-dressed 40-50-somethings wear nowadays? Are there any styles to avoid? Problem areas to watch out for? I'm not looking for fashion-editor advice. I know what those women wear and while they look fabulous I doubt my mom would wear something so trendy-chic. I'm just trying to figure out what type of clothes to look out for when I buy clothing presents for my mom. She's conservative but also feminine. She also looks like she's in her 30s, so I'm not going to put her in a head-to-toe Chanel suit. I live across the country from my parents so I can't exactly rummage through her wardrobe and figure out what would look good on her, and she's an impulse shopper so she would not be able to give me a list of the clothes she wants. I just realized today that maybe my tastes are a little off when it comes to buying her clothes.... Thank you!
