As we were talking about the grey,
What about wearing grey? I am talking about wearing grey when our hair colour is silver or thereabouts.
I like wearing shades of grey with my silver hair. Yes, I have recovered from my blahs and managed to stay the distance – thank you for your wise counsel in this matter. The subject is a fantastically dividing one and probably the reason I like this discussion so much. It seems to me those who want to wear their hair silver will happily do so and those who don’t will never, at least not in the short term.
How I see it is not about, “how old it makes me look’.
Let’s be realistic, overly dyed hair is neither youthful nor attractive and there is no easy way to be out of this dilemma. Silver hair and a good head of it can look absolutely beautiful or downright dowdy – it very much depends on the hair, how it is dressed and the personal style that accompanies the silver.
What silver or blonde or auburn or pink for that matter does not denote is “younger looking”. Changing our hair colour is our prerogative and some of the best fun of all – I have enjoyed myself as a brunette, a blonde, a redhead and now as silver. All of which I loved and wore repeatedly but going back there will not make me look younger. At least I doubt it. Being fitter, more flexible and sharper will have more of an effect and will be much less of a trouble.
Just saying. And I am very happy to agree to disagree.
Back to grey.
Grey and white is such a winning combination and especially if you are crowned in silver. As a fan of the blazer and pants look with sneakers, these photographs resonated. The red backdrop reminded me just how good a red lip can be and especially with this combination.
Once upon my time, grey was for school uniforms and not my very best friend. Grey conjured up images of flannel and piping, tunics and pleats; ridiculous hats that had to be worn. Now grey, every shade from the palest to the deepest charcoal, is my first and last call.
What a difference a few decades can make? xv
