Last week we told you about the popularity of Emerald Green this season. The color experts at Pantone, the people who predict the spring color trends, say Monaco Blue is also an official color of Spring 2013. This bold, yet calming shade sits between cobalt and sapphire. Don’t you just love it? It would be a gorgeous shade for a Mother of the Bride Dress or any special occasion dress, but works well for everyday life too. For example:
It’s hard to find cute dresses for women over 40, but this one is a winner. This short sleeve, silk dress with pleated front and elastic waistband is simple, sophisticated and easy. It can be worn on its own, or would also look good worn as a tunic over top of black leggings (ankle length or Capris) on a beautiful summer day.
We find that this dress that Grecian Goddess quality to it because of the drape and flow. Can’t you just imagine this as the perfect outfit if you were on a cruise? You’d fit right in with the breathtaking Island scenery.
This dress looks darling the way it is paired here with simple flat black sandals and some feminine gold jewelry.
The sexy snakeskin clutch is a knockout! It brings the dress to life. Now, in reality, you’re probably not going to buy this particular clutch- it’s crazy expensive- but we popped it in as inspiration to show you how adding some texture and a dash of color ( in this case green and black) can take a simple dress and make it wow!
The outfit with the snakeskin clutch is one chic look, however there are other styles of bags you could carry that would be more practical and would work. For example, you could try slinging a big, relaxed, square tote over your shoulder. Then throw on a pair of glamorous over sized sunglasses to get that “Jackie O in her Aristotle Onassis days” look. Try it out and see if this outfit could work for you.
