Coming out of winter, most women are tired of a neutral
heavy wardrobe and ready to bloom right along with the flowers!!  However, a solid foundation of neutrals is
what a successful wardrobe is built upon…and we learned that from the fabulous
French.  Author Tish Jett writes in her
latest release, Forever Chic, “Frenchwomen
of a certain age have built their wardrobes upon a foundation of neutrals. They
add spice with a few magical, highly personal finds.  That way they “own” the look.  They are masters of the art-meets-science
cocktail.  Science is the structure.  Art is the refinement, the individualization
of the whole.  It’s the artistic twists
that transform the ubiquitous into the unusual, the unique.”
There are several over-50 bloggers who do this cocktail mixing with style and
confidence…”they own their looks”….

TAMERA BEARDSLEY often demonstrates how creative and amazing all neutrals can be.  She is one blog star singing the power of accessories in a neutral based wardrobe.

Susan of UneFemme‘s favorite designer is Eileen Fisher and she styles
the looks perfectly. This over fifty professional mom is edgy and bold with predominately
black on the base.
Ann of Blue Hue Wonderland is a chic, classic dresser and often demonstrates how
one fabulous piece should be the star.  She is controlled with her creativity,
highlighting just the right touch to her style.
Annette of Lady of Style brings rich, saturated colors from across the
ocean and also, models for American women the success of neutrals as the
building blocks.
Susan of Fifty not Frumpy is most often seen in designs from Chico’s and uses them to
step out in confidence on date nights with her significant other.  She also selects one attention-grabbing piece
for the entire look.
We need not apologize for repetition of solid neutrals in
our wardrobes.  In order to have a closet
which functions best, this is how it should be. 
Jett writes, “Don’t think for a moment, how boring.  It’s anything but. It’s intelligent, ageless,
and always, always chic. Best of all,
it makes getting dressed so easy. Within the spectrum of neutrals, there are
vast nuances of shades, textures, and possibilities.” Spring 2014 is full of
soft neutral collections providing inspirational options; as well as, many
black & white styles.
