I’m A Professional Shopper, Here Are the Best Places To Shop Over 40

I shop A LOT. I mean a lot! It’s a huge part of my job so I’m technically a professional shopper. Pretty much every day, I’m browsing my favorite online retailers to find the best new fashion finds to show all of you! I have a few go-to places I like to check for super chic pieces to elevate my style that I want to share with you…

I’ve also written posts on the best retailers for curvy women, tall women, and petite women.

Best Places To Shop, Erin Busbee of Busbee Style sharing the best places to shop for women over 40 including Intermix for high quality unique pieces

#1 | Intermix

Intermix is my go-to retailer for high-quality, and often, luxury pieces. I can always find a really unique piece I don’t see anyone else wearing. I will say that most of the inventory is pricier but if it’s in your budget, this is a great place to shop!

Best Places To Shop, Erin Busbee of Busbee Style sharing the best places to shop for women over 40 including Express for trendy pieces and elevated basics

#2 | Express

For more affordable pieces, Express is my favorite! I’ve been shopping at Express for 20 years and love the quality and style! You can get really trendy pieces if that’s your style. Or grab basics that can really elevate your look!

Best Places To Shop, Erin Busbee of Busbee Style sharing the best places to shop for women over 40 including Shopbop for trendy pieces

#3 | Shopbop

Shopbop is another retailer that can be a little pricier depending on what you’re shopping for. They have a good mix of high and lower-end pieces and trendy and basic pieces. This is a great place to check if you need a dress for a special occasion or a new top for date night!

Best Places To Shop, Erin Busbee of Busbee Style sharing the best places to shop for women over 40 including Nordstrom for everything

#4 | Nordstrom

Nordstrom is a go-to for just about anything! They have everything from basics to special occasion pieces and more. Plus, they have some really great, high-quality brands that are affordable. A few of my favorites are Halogen, Gibson, and Topshop!

Best Places To Shop, Erin Busbee of Busbee Style sharing the best places to shop for women over 40 including Everlane for basics

For Basics

If you’re looking for very classic basics, I suggest Banana Republic, White House Black Market, Everlane, and/or J. Crew. I always suggest looking for basics that have some sort of unique detail that elevates it. But if you’re just starting to build your wardrobe with the basics and trying to figure out what your style is, those three retailers are great options! If you haven’t gotten your wardrobe basics checklists, make sure you subscribe to my newsletter here.
