Shades of gray have become an integral part of my wardrobe since it blends well with all other colors. In addition, gray is my substitute for tan or camel since those colors make me look tired and unwell. So, for example, I have a gray trench coat, not a tan one.
Gray dominated my attire for a meeting with my accountant and another visit to the grocery store. My reward was a big smile and the lovely comment, “You look adorable!” from a twenty-something young woman at Publix. Rather than following what the young people are wearing, we can provide an example of aging with style and grace in a way that respects our wisdom and reflects our personal style.
The shoes and bag are at least three years old. The pants and sleeveless white blouse were from Talbots. The dark navy cardigan is old from Tory Burch. I often wear a sleeveless shell under cardigans and sweaters to avoid the appearance of bulky arms. I’m wearing Silk Reflections in the color Jet from Hanes here.

That’s the same silk scarf I have worn countless times. The colors relate to almost everything in my wardrobe, and it is soft and supple, making it easy to tie or wrap without bulk.

Next, I popped up my collar and wrapped the loop around my neck twice.
