Fashion Over Fifty: Playing with Color

Hello!  For this week's Fashion Over Fifty post I want to talk about playing with color.  Now, I love color but my natural inclination is to usually pair it with a neutral like white, black, tan, or grey so that it's not so 'in your face'.  I mean, I like to be noticed, but I don't want to stand out like a neon sign!  So on  a warm humid day this week,  I pulled out this beautiful sleeveless shirt from The Limited to wear and I started to grab my favorite white jeans when I remembered the photo I saw on Pinterest (below right).  Hmmm, maybe I should try another bold color for my bottom for a change, I thought.  I then paired the shirt with soft cotton cropped pants from Express (very old, two seasons ago), and I really liked the look.  I never would have thought of this color combo on my own, but it really works because the two colors are in the same bold hue.  For example, I don't think I could wear this shirt with pastel pink pants.

 For jewelry, I pulled another bold accent color into the ensemble by adding these neon yellow and gold bracelets.
 I completed the outfit with a blue beaded multi strand necklace and some neutral sandals that also have some metallic gold in them.

How about you?  How bold are you when it comes to making color choices for your wardrobe?

Have a great day!  Amy
