I love red, which you already know if you follow me. This sweater has a lot of say on it's own, so when accessorizing, I use something that is in another color range but can hold it own against the red. The animal print belt makes it fun and interesting, to match red everywhere else would be a disaster.
Men I have not forgotten about you, but being a woman it's usually all about me, oh and other woman. So with that in mind I am posting some cool glasses or reading glasses for you stylist older men.
I am recommending you try these products, they look amazing. I just ordered mine and can't wait to try them. The creator is a model you will recognize, she is an amazing older model who loves her age and loves helping women realize their potential. There is no "junk" or bad chemicals in the ingredients and it is not animal tested (even more important). If they have to test something on animals do not buy it.
Last night I was at a social Happy Hour with friends. One of the guys showed up in that new very red orange color in a shirt. It was the bomb. Color is in for men just like for women and the brighter the better. Here are some examples of what you might try.
Why do people shy away from color, I have never figured it out. This Spring and moving into Fall color is huge. Total red or blue and green outfits with just a little shade variation, it going to be the style idea. If color scares you here is a good way to add a little. The watch is an old Banana Republic, I bought different colored bands at Target and J. Crew to swap out for added color. I love the look with my other bracelets. They both have watches to go with the bands, I just already had one that I love.
It was not a brutal winter here by it sure is good to see spring and all those great colors in clothes. Shop wisely but purchase a few things to update what you already own. Here is a Spring color palette, to give you ideas. Just make sure you don't buy for fashion but rather purchase what compliments you. Red is not in this color card, but it's a good one for spring and summer. Remember Red means power, danger, intensity, passion and strength, so wear it wisely.
COLOR COLOR COLOR is hot hot hot right now for spring and summer. As we age color is our friend. So I bought into the whole idea and yesterday I purchased these pants. By J. Crew, you need to find ones in a style and color that fit you. I love these tomorrow I will show you how I plan on wearing them. They are much more orange and red them the photo.
I was at a happy hour with friends this past Sunday, where I made a comment on the wearing of head to toe black or always wearing black for women. I have done a great deal of reading university studies and color specialist reports on color and what is says to you and others. I just want you to know I did not make this up it's back up by studies. Below is what black usually means.
Black is a very harsh color, difficult to wear. It makes a person seem aloof and overpowering. It is not recommend to wear with a client or a prospective date. In most cases it should be worn as an accent color. It's also very hard on older skin and coloring.
Check out some of the new fashions for spring online and see all the amazing color in clothing that is out there. Then go forth and wear color.
I will continue to post what color means for the next few days or weeks, then you can judge for yourself.
Ok, men it's your turn, color has hit the men's market. Of course there have always been lines of men's clothing with color such as Ralph Lauren, Versace or J. Crew. Now almost every line has some color. Here are a few I love and recommend all from Nordstrom's. .
While all I ever ever preach is for a person to have his or her own style, I still desperately love fashion. Without it we would still be dressed in something out of the dark ages. I always try to figure out from all the style shows and fashion magazines, what it is that I can take away from the photos and ideas that do not seem to fit into my life. Ah! but there are ideas and plenty of them if you just have to learn to read between the lines. Here is one thing I have taken away this year: COLOR. Color and big bold splashes of it is everywhere, I love color, I have worked with color my whole life. The trick to color is to make sure it goes with first your skin tone, then you hair and last but not least your eyes. When investing in color for work, make sure it's appropriate to your particular office or position. Tomorrow: what styles am I looking at. You also want to make sure you have other items to wear with this one. Invest in one or two pieces not a whole wardrobe, next year you may not like it.
