How Accessories Change The Basics-By Susan, From Fifty, Not Frumpy
Note from Pauline Durban, Founder and President of Covered Perfectly - What can I say about Susan, from Fifty, not Frumpy that I haven't already said. Other than I'm excited to see her at the next photo shoot. We always have so much fun. I'm sure you will agree that she looks amazing in every one of the tops that she reviews. She's the perfect example of how women over 50 can look fabulous.
Over to Susan...
You have likely noticed that I often wear a similar base including a tunic or tank with a narrow leg pant all in one color. This fabulously comfortable tunic top was a gift from Covered Perfectly. This style is the Fit and Flare.
This silhouette flatters my shape and height and fits my personality, so I often rely on this basic combination when getting dressed.
Today I want to show you how I change the attitude and set the tone for different looks, by simply changing my accessories. The same top and pants are worn in each of the examples shown here.
This top is very soft and comfortable for traveling. Just wash it out and hang to dry. If you pack it, hang it up when you arrive and when you get up the next morning the wrinkles will be gone!
For a more uptown look, I draped a scarf around my neck and paired
it with dressier heels and a fantastic handbag!
To achieve a more downtown urban vibe, I added a bold medallion necklace, a cropped moto style white jacket, and reptile embossed booties. I always use a jacket as an "accessory" to set the tone for looks.
I hope these examples help you to see how you can change your basic looks by wearing different accessories. A follower once commented to me that she could never put together a look when she shopped at a particular store that I often shop in. I never think of putting together a certain look when I am shopping. Instead, I think only of adding elements that appeal to me, and that can be worn in different ways with what I already have to build appropriate looks for any event.
