Chartreuse is not the easiest color to wear (if you’re a fashion geek, here‘s a long history of chartreuse). It’s bright with strong yellow undertones, and washes out many skin tones. It is a gorgeous color, though, and makes me happy. So I wear it in trousers, skirts, and in accessories like a printed scarf, bracelet or shoes (I haven’t done the shoes yet, but I would).
My Refined Style isn’t refined in the sense of shopping at only the priciest boutiques. It’s refined down to what I love to wear, what speaks to me from my closet, and what feels good.
Here I went all out with chartreuse jeans, (by Eileen Fisher, thrifted, similar), a favorite floral scarf (sim) and my Trina Turk print jacket (sim). Why be shy? I added my new Steve Madden boots (sim) for grounding.
It’s a color that draws the eye.
Now, let’s see what your style is today!
Monthly Fashion Over-40 Linkup
Women shouldn’t have to follow a set of rules once they reach a certain age. However, the over-40 woman does develop the confidence to refine her own personal style and that’s what My Refined Style is all about!
This monthly Linkup goes live on the first Thursday of every month on 7 blogs and runs for one week.
