Go for the Bold!

Over50Styling! Mixing patterns is still with us this season and more fun in some of the bright spring colors! Go for the Bold!

I put this palm print pencil skirt with the striped top and it was really BOLD! So to calm it down a bit, I topped it all with a long chiffon duster in the cobalt blue. This ties the two pieces together a bit more and cuts down on how much of the bold combination you can see by half. So the really bold combo is only visible in the open front of the duster and more as you move. The shoes were a great match up with all the colors. The handbag was another bit of calming influence here for its sensible style, but the color is great with it all. And the necklace brings all the colors up from the skirt to the neckline.
how are you going to adjust the amount of bold you show in this outfit? The handbag is an easy one - choose a bolder one. The duster is another way to do it. You could go with a blazer or cardigan in a shorter style that allows more of the bold combo to show. Or, if you are really into bold, don't wear anything over the skirt and top.
How bold are you?
