Melinda Brady, 54, is an Australian model and product and interiors stylist. She also happens to be ludicrously stylish (if you’re not following her on Instagram, do yourself a favour and follow her here ). Here are her 12 fashion commandments for all women over 40. But, to be honest, all ages will be able to find some gold here…
1. My secret weapon.
There’s one outfit that never ever fails to make me look amazing. It never goes out of style. I’ve been doing it for decades now and it always get compliments. Denim jeans and a crisp white shirt. Dress it up with big hair, bling and sky-high heels or down with sandals, a fedora and a slouchy bag.

I’ve had an obsession with mens’ dinner shirts for as long as I can remember (current count is around 25). As an older woman it never fails to make me look ‘current’. When it comes to jeans, I don’t go for tricky cuts. The crisp white shirt throws light up into my face, it always makes me feel fresh and I’m convinced it makes me look younger.
