A Splash Of Color Into Your Gray

How do you go gray?

Some people embrace their gray hair with style and elegance. Others can’t deal with the timeless silver shade and prefer to dye. Ultimately, depending on your genes and your lifestyle, your hair can go gray as early as in your 30s, although most women experience the change during their late 40s and early 50s. Thanks to the examples of famous women such as Dame Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis, or even Diane Keaton, embracing your grays have never been easier – that is, if you think it suits you.  However, whether you choose to let your hair go gray naturally or not, it doesn’t mean that your entire style should be gray. On the contrary, you need colors to spice up your outfit!


Pick one item that you can change
Colorful accents can be used anywhere. If you’re not comfortable with bringing vibrant shades to your outfit, you can use interchangeable accessories to create the impression of colors. Simple touches for the classy women can bring the playfulness you need – check this website casesalamode.com/, for instance, to make your smartphone the centerpiece of your outfit. A bright belt or a fun pair of glasses can transform a dull monochrome outfit into something lively and exciting. There’s one essential rule: These accessories can be changed at will!


Your smokey eyes don’t work anymore
If you want to continue to feel fabulous wearing makeup, you need to change your habits. Something that used to work when you were in your 20s or 30s might highlight your wrinkles more than you’d care to show. Dark smokey eyes, for instance, is one of these mistakes that you need to avoid. On the contrary, now is the best time to create a colorful and subtle smokey effect. Heather, a former model from 1980s, explains in this video youtube.com/ exactly how mature eyes should wear the smokey trend. The secret: Less is more for over 50s skin!


Colorful clothes don’t stop when you turn 40+
What is with the obsession of aging women to wear only gray and black outfits? Remember that getting older doesn’t mean you can’t show off in your favorite clothes. Take a look at these gorgeous over 50s beauties who know exactly what it means to bring colors into everyday fashion. Linda Fargo, senior vice president of the fashion office of Bergdorf Goodman, loves a good leopard print and a vibrant red lipstick, for instance. Actress Isabelle Huppert enjoys a deep burgundy and brown androgynous look that complements her red hair.


Bring a touch of fun with vibrant shoes
Finally, if you don’t feel comfortable wearing bold dresses, trousers or jackets, you might love the idea of spicing up your outfit with a pair of colorful shoes. The seasonal trends, this winter, focus on plain red, blue and yellow boots and low slippers. But you can also add an animal print to your beloved high heels for a touch of extraordinary style! Bright shoes can radically transform a mousy gray outfit into an effortless, iconic outfit that turns heads wherever you go.



In conclusion, going gray doesn’t mean everything has to embrace the monochromatic trend. On the contrary, you can be playful with small and interchangeable colorful accessories, subtle makeup, and vibrant shoes if you want to add a touch of boldness to a simple outfit. The most adventurous fashionistas will follow the confident lead of Isabelle Huppert.

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far. I know that lately, when it comes to fashion I have been sticking to basic hues like gray. I love adding a pop of color to my outfit of the day. I have been reaching for my navy booties a lot the past couple of weeks and am currently on the hunt for a cute pair of cranberry or wine booties. If you see a pair I might like, send me a DM on Instagram or email me. 

What are your plans for the weekend? I am doing chores around our home and am working on a gift guide in hopes to get it up on the blog by Wednesday. Leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.
