Hit Your Style Sweet Spot: Fashion Over 50 Celebrates Color

Welcome to a fun collaboration with Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and Pam of over50feeling40.  We desire for all of us… the fabulous women over 50 …to look and feel our best each and every day.  After years of blogging for this audience, we have heard from so many of you about your discouragement and despondency when you look in the mirror every morning.  But, we both know just how transformative style can be, and hope to encourage you right here each week.  We want to see all of us empowered with strength, joy, and confidence.

I write often of my love of neutrals, but that does not mean that I do not love to wear color...especially during the colder months.  Lately, I have been celebrating colors in big ways...though I still love my neutral styles.  I am so glad I took a risk and styled this tunic with my faux leather leggings...they somehow work together!
I highly recommend you do as I did and learn your best colors...then stick with them.  I look best in saturated colors over pastels...my favorites are burnt orange, reds, burgundy, eggplant purple, saffron yellow, forest green, and royal blues.  When I remain loyal to what I know flatters my style, then I rarely make a color mistake.

I love to pop just one strong color with my neutral looks and do this often.

Wear color confidently and with boldness...it is easier to do this when you know which ones look great on you.  And, color can put sunshine into a dreary cold day!

I live in a vibrant, colorful city (San Antonio) and it is difficult to be here and not celebrate color often...so I am pleased to wear it all year long!

I have selected some beautiful color garments below for your consideration, and make sure you go to JENNIFER OF A WELL STYLED LIFE and see how she feels about wearing color!


Then have a great week!


  1. Really fun styles Pam. I have similar coloring and also look best in saturated colors. I think these tones look great with black. You look classy, yet adventurous!

    1. OOOOO...I like that Karen. Classy yet adventurous is really what I am going for...especially now working in a creative industry.

  2. Love these colourful pieces, Pam. Especially that orange coat. I'd love to visit your city one day. I recently read a novel by Laura Lipmann that was set there and it sounded fantastic. Great food and music.. and friendly people...sounds like a wonderful place to live...or visit.

    1. It is a wonderful place, Susan. Let me know if you ever visit and I will treat you to dinner!

  3. You look fabulous in saturated colors! They are so lively and pretty on you. I love how much energy color generates.

    1. It really does generate energy! AND I love the color of the top you are wearing today, Jennifer!

  4. We are on the same track today, Pam! You look fab in vivid colors. xo


  5. Those are all really fun looks on you! Love the pop of color and the styling.

  6. Wow, I really love the second colorful jacket. Great colors on you Pam!
