Update your look with vibrant Spring colour

Fashion advice for women 40+



How to update your wardrobe for Spring – Add a delicate yet vibrant shade of orchid pink, reminiscent of cherry blossom.

This BlueMarmalade sweater is a perfect Spring colour to add to your sweater collection.  It is extremely flattering and is an excellent shade if you are a “glamours grey” or thinking of joining the trend to become one.


The sumptuous easy V neck style has a wide cut which gives it a relaxed feel.  The crop front and longer back is flattering and  feminine and together with the  orchid pink gives the look an understated softness, The sweater is made from  lambswool, cotton and cashmere blend. I always read fabric labels as I have become extremely fussy about fabric quality. I find that it is always worthwhile to invest in the best quality you can afford.

In the first image I have teamed the sweater with a pair of casual wide leg jersey trousers. It would go just as well with a pair of leggings.

Have a great week-end and if you have some cherry blossom left where you live enjoy its beauty.

    You look fabulous from head to toe. I too love natural fibres – they last longer, breathe and don’t irritate my skin. Definitely worthwhile investments.
    Warm regards.

    Love these comfortable and casual yet stylish looks!

    Thank you for your kind comment – great to hear you are doing pilates twice a week. So good to stick to a workout routine, isn’t it?
