Then start re-building your wardrobe. The easiest first step is to go the monochromatic route. This means wearing one simple color, like blue, red, green, black, white, khaki, at a time. You can always experiment with textures of the same color if you need more interest.
For inspiration, see our Pinterest board of exclusively monochrome outfits.

Instead of wearing your entire jewelry box every day, focus on one wearing one standout piece at a time. BUT a nice pair of trouser cut, straight leg or wide leg jeans look fabulous on older women.

Here is a little different take on the polka dot. Using fruit in a bold color was just one way designers tried to differentiate their designs from the crowd. The long gloves on this model would probably be worn for evening and not with a day dress. Although with that hat it could have been a Kentucky Derby ensemble. This woman is wearing a knit dress. Knits were worn for occasions that required a little bit more of a dressed up look. Knits were generally more expensive and favored by the big European Design Houses.
Here is another form fitting dress, this one in wool. This outfit would definitely be for winter. Well the s brought silk back into the dress market and the women loved it.
