White and Silver Glamour: And Link Up

Wearing sequins and embellishments can be a very flattering look for the over 50s as metallics, like pearls, reflect back to the face and add a youthful glow. Is This Mutton, the fashion and beauty blog for the over 50s, shows how to create a show stopper summer outfit in white and silver.
I love white and silver together - they are the epitome of summer glamour. What started as an idle browse on Asos for kimonos led me to discover this embellished beauty from River Island, and I had to have it, even though I may not wear it very often.

The good news is, the embellished kimono, which tinkles as I walk, is reduced from £90 to £58.50. I love white in winter too because it's so unexpected, so this could be a great look for a Christmas party, substituting some velvet trousers perhaps for the white jeans, and white boots for the silver sandals.

Here I'm wearing it with plenty of shimmer and shine with a sequinned silver top, white wide legged jeans, silver sandals (similar), and a cute pearled evening bag from my collection.

My grandmother would have said "not a very practical outfit," bit that's why I like it.

Wearing silver and sparkle is like wearing pearls in that it reflects and casts light on your face, giving a more youthful look.
