The Roaring Red 20s
Go ahead — play with matches. The youngest among us can dare to don red on red, especially in the passionate heat of summer. Spritzes of cool blue give the look a sophisticated simmer.
The Gilded Age of The 30s
Nothing says “I’ve arrived” like a crisp, white-on-white pant suit with perfectly-placed golden accessories. Keep the outfit simple but go for gusto with chain links, tony logos and delectable textures.
This is the decade when style gets serious. Tap black’s versatility and elegance like a no-nonsense New Yorker but balance it with white to confirm you’re a woman who can handle anything.
Outshine in Emerald
Confident, prosperous and self-assured, emerald is the perfect shade to bring out a mature lady’s inner beauty and vitality. But wearers beware — this verdant hue may leave a wake of envy behind you.
