Elegant Valentine’s outfits for Women over 40

I always love searching out elegant Valentine’s outfits for women over 40 this time of year (in fact I’m nearly approaching 50). For Valentines my husband and I usually eat out at some fancy restaurant. Call me crazy but I really enjoy being surrounded by stylish couples out celebrating Valentines Day. I find it reassuring that so many people make an effort to celebrating love, but I’m a romantic! Dressing chic, elegant, classy or stylish is my preferred way.

A touch of red, a heel and some beautiful underwear is all important. I want to look lady-like and a touch sexy.

I have three complete outfit choices for you. Of course they can be mixed and matched as they include bags, underwear, coats, jewellery, the lot! Have fun checking them out –  and Happy Valentine’s Day mwoah mwoah!

 

Elegant Valentine's Outfits For Women Over 40.

 

This year, like many others, we are fitting in Valentine’s Day as and when we can. Although it’s great to be surrounded by other couples dressed up and loved up, over the 32 years we’ve been together we have not always been together on the actual day. Still, we have never missed out. If there’s one night of the year you are getting dolled up just for the one you love it’s Valentine’s Day!

 

Elegant Valentine's Outfits For Women Over 40.

 

I’m not one for overtly sexy outfits and prefer elegant clothes. I think heels, a splash of red and a touch of skin is seductive.

You an find both my skirt and top in my BOUTIQUE!

So, are you into elegant Valentine’s outfits for women over 40? Or perhaps you prefer curling up in Pj’s watching a cute movie together? I’ve celebrated with my daughter before when we’ve both been alone at Valentines, but I made my hubby this Indulgent Valentine’s Jar (don’t be too impressed it was sooo easy!). He loved it because it was full of chocolates and lolly sticks with promises written on them. His favourite – control of the tv remote all weekend. Yes, ladies – I know the way to a man’s heart ;O)

    Ha ha! I love your present to your husband. Mine would love control of the remote too! I think your outfit is very elegant and like you say doesn’t show too much skin. By the way red roses are my favourite flower on Valentine’s Day and any other day of the year. #TeamLovinLife

      Hi Kathy! This was one of the nicest bunches I think I’ve ever had. Especially as I know my husband had to get it made especially for me. I’ll probably let him control the remote all weekend – if I can bear it haha! x

    Age is just a number. I think we all should be young at heart. Anyways, love those outfits; gonna recommend to take your tips to someone I know. Happy Valentines! (in very much advance 😉 )

      Thank you Paula! The contemporary selection is gorgeous! But, I’ve just bought the jumpsuit and it’s so flattering – I can’t wait to wear it! x

    32 years! That’s amazing! My husband and I are celebrating our first anniversary this year and I’m excited to see what our future years look like. I’m dying for those red boots in the elegant outfit. I REALLY want them.

      January 19, 2018 / 3:34 pm

      Oh they are on my crush list too Nichole!! They come in a gorgeous blue too. I can’t decide which one to go for yet. The blue is useful but those red ones are showstoppers! x

      Fabulous aren’t they! I feel the very same x

  10. January 19, 2018 / 8:30 pm

    Some fabulous outfits there. Iove the red boots & the short black velvet jacket. We’ve been together 29 years & have never celebrated Valentines Day, although these days I do try and make a nice dinner. Maybe I should be making more of an effort…after seeing these pics I’m certainly tempted to… #TeamLovinLife

    • Maria Kelly
      January 19, 2018 / 9:06 pm

      I’m so chuffed this post has made you consider celebrating Valentine’s Day Jo. The way I think about it, it’s a wonderful excuse to make an effort to do something nice with someone dear x …and wear a fabulous red pair of boots haha ;O)

    • Maria Kelly
      January 20, 2018 / 8:32 am

      I’ve just bought it! I’ll be putting out a post soon so you can see it on a non-model! x

  11. January 20, 2018 / 2:30 am

    Omg, I totally agree! Seeing people in the sprit, dressed to the nine makes the day extra fun! Every single item in these list rocks. I am obsessed with that trench!

      I’m so glad you do Melissa, Valentine’s Day is awesome. I looove the trench coat too – it’s a chic and timeless piece x

  12. January 20, 2018 / 3:50 pm

    I love these looks! I’m not yet 40, but I’m getting much closer and these are amazing looks. I really want that red dress with the cutout bell sleeves!

    • Maria Kelly
      January 20, 2018 / 8:57 pm

      I’m so delighted you like my style! These types of sleeves are making such a stunning statement aren’t they. (I figured it would slim my arms too haha!) x

  13. January 20, 2018 / 4:34 pm

    I love that skirt you’re wearing! off to have a look in your boutique now x

    Maria, you are so stylish and glamorous and you surely don’t look in your late 40s! I love all these outfits and your taste. And as you mentioned it at the end, it would be great to see a post on the PJs for some romantic nights in 🙂

    • Maria Kelly
      January 21, 2018 / 9:04 am

      I love wearing Pj’s! I will be in my element haha! Thank you for the lovely compliments Lucrezia x

  17. January 21, 2018 / 12:28 pm

    I love the splashes of red – it’s one of my favourite colours but for some reason I don’t wear it often. I love the red jumpsuit and the red boots too. I have to admit we don’t usually ‘do’ Valentines day, but I feel like any excuse for a celebration at this time of year is worth celebrating! Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • Maria Kelly
      January 21, 2018 / 4:41 pm

      I’ve bought the jumpsuit Katy. It’s sooo flattering, I’m thrilled with it. I’ll have it up on a post in a few weeks so you can take another look x

  18. January 21, 2018 / 5:57 pm

    I’m trying to be more adventurous with red, it’s definitely a sexy colour and very in keeping with valentines day.

    • Maria Kelly
      January 22, 2018 / 7:08 am

      Yes, red is a flirty colour for sure Kerry, even if it’s a red lip!

  19. January 21, 2018 / 10:09 pm
