Dressing in Color for Women Over 50

Color has amazing powers. It can help us feel calm, confident, look thinner, feel happier, and appear more competent. I wear tons of black but have lately been craving color for the pick-me-up it gives.

Although my eyes are considered blue, they contain a range of colors from smokey gray to aqua and deep teal. They look aqua when I wear green, blue when I wear gray and gray when I wear blue. I like to dress to flatter them.
