Seeing Stripes – by Susan from Susan after 60

Note from Pauline Durban, founder of Covered Perfectly. When I wanted to test a print, I went to Susan to see if your wonderful women over 50 liked it. WOW, you sure did, we sold out in a few hours. They are back and still flying off the shelves. I guess you like them. Check out the many ways Susan styles them.

Over to Susan...

There is at least one Breton stripe or mariniére shirt in almost every example of a capsule wardrobe. Stripes are one of a select few prints in my closet. Animal print in a wide variety of colors and patterns is very on trend this season. I’ve found a top that is a subdued combination of both prints. It goes with all my classic jackets and cardigans, and since it is a soft micro modal fabric, it is the perfect first layer.

This fabulous top is available from Covered Perfectly (here)
in both a scoop neck above and the V-neck style below.

Perhaps the reason stripes are so timeless is that they can be worn almost year-round and styled in a variety of ways. Since it is a cold, snowy day here, it’s a good time to do an indoor photo shoot to show you a few of the ways I wear these new tops. Covered Perfectly tops have been my first layer, almost daily, every winter since 2013.

The combat boots are a new addition to my collection. They are the perfect cold, snowy day boots. My first layer is the print top; the second layer is a cashmere sweater; lastly, I added a black mid-length coat I’ve had for more than ten years. The black jeggings are from Chico’s here. The Zac Posen tote bag is my winter staple when I am out for the day.

Now let’s pretend it is a warm sunny day. I draped a white cotton cardigan over my shoulders, added Ked’s slip-on sneakers (similar here) and a Dooney & Bourke salmon colored tote from last year (similar here). The top is here.

Ready for my next meeting, I am wearing my trusty wool blazer from Everlane. The bag is old by Calvin Klein. The Frye Boots are from a couple of years ago.  Similar belt here. The top is here.

Now that the work day is over, I can join friends for dinner at the new Thai place. The Vintage Pink minus the leather moto jacket is from Express. The Michael Kors crossbody bag is here.

I’m honored to be the first to show you these new tops from Covered Perfectly. When you buy two tops, the third is free! The print tops are here. Hurry! They won’t last long.
