See my fashion over 40 doesn’t exclude bold color

Forget about sludge brown and co

The times are over when women over 40 were supposed to wear just neutrals like sludge brown, navy, gray. When it came to tops muted pastels were in order. My late mom very often told my sister and me that her grandma, our great-grandma was often slammed for wearing bold colors over 80. Mom explained that over 40 years old women weren’t supposed to wear any bold colors in the 50s and 60s. Thanks goodness, these times are over!  It’s great that you can wear color at the office at any age today.

When you agree that women over 40 look awesome in bold colors spread the word on twitter.

My colorful outfit

Today’s outfit features turquoise green and black where back serves to ground the look. You want the easy look of analogous colors then go for turquoise and green, or orange and red, or olive and yellow, just to mention a few foolproof color combinations. Another easy way to come up with great combinations is to create a Pantome colors inspired look.
