Sometimes I forget that so many in my age group still are affected by the antiquated rules of fashion….but it does pop up occasionally in conversation. Recently, a lady asked me if we should only wear pastel, light colors in the spring and summer. She said that growing up women only wore light blue, light pink, light yellow, and on and on, during warmer weather months.

I shouted a resounding NO! Of course, not. In fact, (back to the book of What Not To Wear), Stacy London once advised that older women should mostly wear saturated colors….the deep rich expression of any color. I find that I am drawn to the more saturated colors rather than the pastels….but what is so great about modern day fashion is that you can wear either one…whatever YOUR pleasure.

 Yesterday, I went for both…light pink on the bottom….and saturated forest green on the top!!
