Martina tells us that Maxi Skirts are popular in Germany and wearing them makes her feel “really good”!

One of Martina’s favorites from her closet is her new Dirndl (pictured above). Dirndl ~ (noun) a woman’s dress in the style of Alpine peasant costume, with a full skirt and a close-fitting bodice.

Welcome, friends, to our new series She’s Got Style, a celebration of fabulous, fashionable women from across the globe who just so happen to be over 40. Consider it your own personal global fashion show!Since women come in all shapes, sizes and heights, we’ll bring you the style inspiration of some beautiful and fascinating women who will share their own fashion insight into how to look FABULOUSLY CHIC at any age!

Our first fashionista is the lovely Martina Berg, an Image Consultant who calls Munich, Germany home.  Martina likes to make her outfit choices depending upon her mood and where she’s headed.  Sometimes classic elegance, maybe tomorrow a little casual chic and tonight, something rather extravagant!  Why not?

Martina gives style and image seminars and considers her primary job to remind women just how beautiful they truly are at any age!

“In my seminars it comes to optimizing the existing beauty. Because every woman is beautiful!” Martina Berg

FCO50: Describe your personal style.

MARTINA: Mostly I prefer the classic and elegance, but sometimes also the sporty look. Another time, I love the chic casual look. And sometimes I combine with a little bit of extravagance in my outfit. I can say, it really comes down to my mood and the situation. For dinner, visit to a musical or a special event, I like to wear an exclusive piece of clothing.

FCO50: What is your favorite item in your closet right now?

MARTINA: Honestly, I have currently several favorite pieces. But let me tell you about my two favorites – one is my new Dirndl and the second one is a special blouse with an unusual print. And let me tell you about my favorite item over years – it’s my white suite.

FCO50: What is popular right now in your country on the fashion scene?

MARTINA: This is of course dependent on age . Highly popular are the off shoulder blouses. But these are not one of my favorites, I personally do not wear them therefore. Maxi dresses are also currently popular. I wear them very often and feel really good when I wear one.


I am an image consultant, I give seminars on styling and the famous first impression. Many women do not know how beautiful they are. It is important for me, to show all ladies ways to discover their own beauty. That should not be a complete makeover of all – quite the opposite. In my seminars it comes to optimizing the existing beauty. Because every woman is beautiful!
