The second instalment of “should older women wear pastel colours”. Also continuing my series on “how to adapt Spring 2014” trends.
Read my post on “serenity blue” where I showcase a pale blue sweater and scarf combo. This week I am trying “rose quartz”. Pink is one of my favourite colours. I usually wear a stronger shade and thought that perhaps this pale muted tone would make me look a bit washed out.
To my surprise I found the colour flattering and soft with my grey/blonde hair. I needed to tone down my usually brightish pink lipstick.

To stress the point again it is “how you wear it”. Modern styling is essential. I am a fan of sleeveless jackets/waistcoats, especially those that cover the hip area. The one above is by MandS. I have teamed it with a shirt that I bought from MeandM a couple of seasons ago.
If you don’t feel that “rose quartz” worn near the face will work for you, try a nod to this colour trend with a summer bag, jewellery or shoes.
