I tend to coordinate my clothes, but most of my things work with everything else. I don't wear tight, tight clothes anymore because they are uncomfortable and they show more than I want to show these days. Earrings are a must, and a couple of rings, my Fit watch and a plain simple bracelet.

Plain simple,  round neck, jewel neckline, to be worn with pearls/scarf, or simple chain. This could be a blouse or dress and can be worn with a sport jacket/sweater/or cardigan. Color choice navy blue, black, purple,  etc. You all have a blessed weekend!

Clean, neat, and appropriate for the occasion whether it be shopping, working out at the gym, or going out to eat at a restaurant.  If I feel comfortable with what I'm wearing in the environment in which I'm wearing it, then that's my "fashion statement".  I remember my mother used to say "dress for your age" or "you're too old to wear that".  I always thought that was nonsense, and now that I'm a 79 year old senior, I still think that's nonsense.  By the way, you should see my new running shoes!

Add bright colored (red, gold, sapphire blue) accessories (shoes, earrings, bracelet, scarf, necklace) with muted or neutral colored (black, beige, white, gray) clothes

I only wear a scarf if I am outside in the winter.  My go to style is my dark blue blazer!

I don't consider myself stylish, but when I need to look a little dressy I recommend scarves...preferably multicolored....that will go with plain tops or jackets.  Hope they never go completely out of style!
