what to wear: with gray hair
Wearing gray or silver is fairly easy when you are gray or silver-haired. I love the idea of mirroring your hair color in your clothing — it looks so fluid and beautiful and it’s something that all good personal stylists advise.
But, for you silver and platinum sisters without much pigment left, you need to add some color. Here’s a Spring outfit to keep you looking hip (it also works for any gray-haired lovely – just make sure you can carry the color.)
I am literally coveting this Milly halter top because it takes a beautiful warm orange and drops it on an off-white background. Since most women are over 40 when they’re predominately silver (not all, mind you), it’s probably a good idea to cover the arms if you’re not so crazy about yours. This Kenneth Cole stand-up collar jacket comes in a red/orange and adds just the right amount of color.
Pair your top and jacket with 7 For All Mankind Ginger jeans that are the silver standard for gals with hips. Add a simple neutral suede sandal and Francesco Biasia bag such as these from 6pm.com — I could spend hours in this Zappos discount store where you can find Weitzman, Coclico, Sigerson Morrison for cheap! The silver earrings mirror the pattern in the top and adds just the right detail.
