Fashion Over Fifty: Classic Clothes in Trendy Colors

Hello!  Do you like all the bright hot summer colors but fear they might look too trendy for you?  Try wearing these new colors in classic clothes.   For this week's Fashion Over Fifty post I am wearing a  pencil skirt and a sheer, white, button down blouse with a neon lime tank.  The colors of the skirt and tank are very bright, but the clothes themselves are quite traditional which really balances the entire outfit.  It allows me to be more on trend, yet, with a classic style for my age.

Every item in my outfit this week was purchased last year.  The skirt is from Target, the white shirt is from Express (but it is their classic Portofino shirt which they still sell), and the shoes are from DSW.  I have many of these shirts in several different colors.  I love the versatility of these shirts and use them often as a cover up.  For example, this outfit I would wear with just the tank, but I carry the shirt with me to keep warm in air conditioned buildings and also to stay covered in social situations where a tank alone is not acceptable.
 For jewelry I wore a coral multi strand necklace with coordinating drop earrings and a multi strand white seed bracelet.

 I bought these sandals last year.  They are super comfy and because they have several different colors in them, I can wear them with many different outfits.
Have a great day!  Amy


  1. Another great outfit Amy, and I love your jewelry! Nice flowers in the background too, I love how the coral colored lilies match your skirt.
