"The monochromatic look works well for a woman in her 60s," says Sam Saboura, a Los Angeles-based stylist who's worked with Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston and hosts TLC's wedding showSomething Borrowed, Something New. Outfits based around a single color look put-together and clean, so you can add a playful element like polka dot pants without sacrificing sophistication. To try a monochromatic color palette like Diane Keaton's wearing, pair items in a single color: Think dark green pants with a light green shirt, or head-to-toe black.

Wear Clothes That Camouflage

"If you have any issues with the upper arm area—something a lot of women over 40 worry about—a sheer, cap-sleeve like this will hide it," says Seth Howard, a New York City-based stylist who's created looks for fashion magazines likeMarie Claire.

In fact, any area of concern can be hidden with the right clothes. A bra with smoothing panels will keep your back free of indentations, for example, and loose-fitting tops are forgiving if you're self-conscious about your midsection.

Take a cue from Jennifer Lopez, who upgraded this sporty, casual outfit with a stylish shoe. Invest in a few good pairs of (comfortable) shoes, and they'll elevate everything you wear. Robyn Victoria, a celebrity stylist in New York City who has worked with Eva Mendes and Heidi Klum, suggests starting with an everyday pump with a narrow toe and a heel low enough to wear all day. If you have trouble standing in stilettos, opt for a wedge or a block heel, which distribute your body weight more evenly so your feet won't be killing you 10 minutes into your day.

As women age, they tend to fall into a pattern of wearing watered-down colors, like pastels, Saboura says. But bright colors add energy and youth to your style—as long as you don't go overboard. Instead of trying to imitate the rainbow, try just one statement piece in a bold hue: A brightly colored top, a punchy clutch, or a vibrant scarf.

Choose Chic Accessories

A stylish necklace or fun bracelet, like the one Lucy Liu is wearing, can add interest to even the simplest outfits. Just steer clear of flashy pieces, which can clutter your look and make it seem like you tried too hard. For women over 40, Victoria says simple jewelry like Liu's gold cuff or a few thin, delicate rings as the chicest way to go. "Accessories should catch your eye without taking away from the outfit," Victoria says.

"Salma Hayek is bringing focus to her face by adding a really bright pop of color with her scarf," Saboura says. Brightly colored accessories, and scarves in particular, can instantly update basic looks, Howard says. But try before you buy—if the color washes out your face, you can end up looking older. For women with yellow undertones, bright pinks and peach will flatter, while women with dark skin look good in deep red. Women whose skin has cool pink or blue undertones look best in soft colors like lilac and pale blue, while sharp colors like white, black, and magenta flatter women with olive skin.

You can wear clothes fashioned after youthful trends, like Julianne Moore's bright asymmetrical hem dress, as long as you don't show too much skin. "Her dress is very avant-garde and colorful, but she's covered up on top, it doesn't come off as too young for her age," Saboura says. If you like a new style of dress, go for a version with long or three quarter sleeves, like Moore has done here. If leg-lengthening high-waisted jeans or skirts are in vogue, go for it, but leave low-rise trousers and crop tops to teens.

A coat like Naomi Campbell's will add major polish (along with color and texture) to any outfit, Saboura says. But even a beautiful coat like this would throw off an outfit if it didn't fit well, he cautions. Take your topper to a tailor who can slim the sleeves and nip it in at the waist so it flatters your figure.

Add (A Little) Animal Print

"Sofia Vergara's leopard skin coat makes a basic outfit more interesting," Victoria says. An everyday look can be taken up a few notches on the style scale with small touches of animal print (snakeskin is seeing a resurgence this year). But again, subtlety is key: Instead of shimmying into a leopard print pants suit, work in a wildlife-inspired motif with a printed scarf, flats, or sunglasses.

Be Sexy Yet Subtle

"Susan Sarandon is showing off her silhouette, but because she's covered up with the tights and a jacket, it's age appropriate," Saboura says. Nail the subtly sexy effect with clothes that skim your figure, yet don't flash major flesh, like a form-fitting dress or blouse and pants paired with a flowing sweater or structured coat. "Less is more, but not so little that you look like a nun," Victoria says.

Roll Up Your Sleeves

"This dress is very boxy, especially for her very petite frame," Victoria says. "She could easily look like she's swimming in it, but the pushed-back sleeves make it feel youthful and flattering." Yep, this is the one place you want to show skin: Rolling back the sleeves on a long-sleeved dress or jacket will show off the slimmest part of your arms.

"Rachel Weisz's faux fur jacket hits right below her hips and fits her in a really cool, flattering way; it makes this look young and fresh," Victoria says. A waist-length coat suits Weisz's petite frame, but women with curvier builds should try a coat that lands mid-thigh, which calls attention away from the hips. Taller women can carry longer hemlines, like full-length coats or those that fall below the knee, but shorter women should choose a hem above the knee, to visually lengthen legs.

Balance Your Body

"When you dress, you want to make sure your proportions balance out," Howard says. "If you're pear-shaped, balance the effect with a strong focal point at the neck, like Meryl Streep's strong collar," he says. If you're apple shaped, on the other hand, create volume on your lower half with a wide-leg pant or A-line cut skirt.

Mix Your Patterns Wisely

"Mixing patterns is trendy, and breaks old-fashioned style rules," Howard says. "Generally, wearing horizontal stripes makes you look wider, but Eva Mendes' mix of stripes breaks it up and counteracts the effect," he says. The key to becoming a mix-master: choose patterns that don't compete. Either pair two completely different patterns, like stripes and a fun floral, or two similar patterns, making sure one is bold and the other delicate.

Pair Opposites

Pair opposites

Looser fabrics on top paired with fitted pants make for a winning combination, Saboura says. The key is pairing pieces with textures and fits that balance one another: Halle Berry’s fuzzy sweater works well with the flat texture of her leather leggings, while the voluminous fabrics she's wearing on top are balanced by her tight pants. To keep your look put together and sophisticated, dress with opposites in mind: A form-fitting pair of pants with a baggy sweater, or a flowy dress with a fitted jacket.

Identify your best assets and highlight them. "If you're someone like Katie Couric, who has great legs, then a hemline above the knee and a great shoe will draw people's attention to your legs," Howard says. (Check out these 13 slimming style tricks that take off years)."Beautiful, toned arms can be accentuated with a short-sleeved top," Victoria says. And a deep neckline can make a graceful neck appear even longer and more elegant. "But when all else fails," Howard says, "just wear all black.
