Many people have an idea that getting old means wearing dull and drab clothes in base and light shades. But aging does not mean that you have to dress dowdy. It is true that wearing extremely bright colors might not be suitable after a particular age, but adding some color to the wardrobe is also important.
Instead of adding colors to garments directly, you can use colorful accessories that help in spicing up the costume considerably.
