Soft Surroundings Gauze Tunic on Over 50 Feeling 40


It is June and time to think about those fabrics that serve us best for summer fashions when we are over 50.  Cotton gauze is one of those fabrics.  When I began to first notice garments reported to be made with gauze, I immediately thought about bandages!  It wasn’t a good picture in my head.

But, cotton gauze is often lightweight and 100% cotton.  It does not wrinkle like linen and is good for warmer climates.  Soft Surroundings offers several garments in cotton gauze.  Since, I already owned one top and knew it to wear well, I was drawn to this one in their recent Memorial Day Sale.  This will be an “all-year” top because the tabs allow the sleeves to come down long.  It can also be worn as a third-piece over a knit tee or tank.

Now, I know some of you are wondering why I am wearing these colors for summer.  Well, because they are my colors…good for me all year round.  I do not hang up my best colors because of a season change.

 I recently walked through Target and this little $9 scarf jumped out at me…because of the colors.  I can wear this on my handbag…in my hair…or as a short neck scarf.

Most of my summer is spent in air conditioning, so this works for those days.  On the days, I will be outside at an event, I can go in lighter colors that do not attract the sun like black does. But, I do wear black in the summer and have many options in the color.  It is one of my favorites.


“You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion.” —  Christian Dior

I so agree with Christian Dior on this one.  When I had my colors done and was declared a WINTER, I looked at the palette and was so excited to see that it included black and all my favorites.  This is what you will see when you enter my closet.


Thank goodness I can get a look like this without paying Dior prices!  Do you have colors you wear no matter what the season is, or do you stick closely to seasonal colors?
