Fashion style & beauty tips for women over 40

Look of the day: 50's look

Si me seguís de forma regular sabréis lo mucho que me gustan las películas antiguas de los 40 y 50. Creo que son una excelente fuente de inspiración en especial a la hora de combinar colores.

El look que os muestro hoy está claramente inspirado en las dos protagonistas de las pelis que presento: Ava Gardner y Maureen O’Hara.  Como podéis comprobar el verde y azul klein no es un combinación trendy de nuestros días sino que en los 50 los diseñadores de la época (Travilla, Edith Head, Hellen Rose…)  ya marcaban tendencias con esta combinación.

¿Qué os parece chicas? ¿Vosotras también os inspiráis películas antiguas a la hora de vestiros?
¡Feliz inicio de semana!!

If you follow my blog regularly, you already know how much I love the classic films from the 40’s and 50’s. I truly believe they’re an excellent inspiration specially when it comes to combine colors.

The look that I’m showing you today is clearly inspired in the stars of the films I’m presenting you: Ava Gardner and Maureen O’Hara. As you can see green and klein blue is not an actual  trendy combination 'cause in the 50’s the top designers of that time (Travilla, Edith Head, Hellen Rose…) already used it.

What do you think ladies? Do you also find inspiration in old classic films??
Happy beginning of the week!!
