Classics with a Purposeful Twist- By Nicole of High Latitude Style
Note from Pauline Durban, Founder and President of Covered Perfectly - Nicole is very fortunate to have a flat tummy, I don’t, so I wear this outside of my pants and it glides over the midsection perfectly. I love that she paired it with a statement necklace and white jeans.

Over to Nicole...
My wardrobe consists of high quality classic basics, i.e. the investment pieces and trendy fast fashion pieces that serve to give my outfits a trendy vibe. What I am looking for in a high quality investment piece is a nice super soft material, a great fit and cut.
When the cut has some unexpected twist like a wrapping or draping, it’s even better. It is no secret that I like to look for such pieces at Covered Perfectly. They have, among other things, various styles of tops that hide all kinds of body flaws and there is a piece for every body shape. ❤
The "Sylvia" Draped Front Top shown in the outfit photos is a sample from Covered Perfectly. I love that it works for three seasons – in summer just so, and in fall and spring with a blazer or jacket as a layering piece. This modal top is so flattering, luxurious, super soft, and comfortable. Who doesn’t like that?
The nice playful cut stands out of the crowd of plain solid color tops due to the draping on the chest. The draping draws the eyes away from the neck or a double chin. Another advantage of the draping is that the top doesn’t need a summer scarf to look stylish. Who needs that extra layer in summer?
I wore a camisole under the top because I don’t like showing too much cleavage. The draping will be higher up for a fuller breast than mine. Then the cleavage will be less than in my case (bra size 34AA). However, you still can wear a statement necklace.
I love the 3/4 long sleeves as I like to wear an arm party for style. Here I pushed the sleeves up to end above the elbow. The sleeves also hide not so tuned upper arms (mine). The dark color has a slimming effect. The top is also available in Wine and Royal Blue, something for everyone.
The "Sylvia" Draped Front Top works for the office as well as for the weekend. Since the fabric doesn’t wrinkle it is also perfect for business and vacation travel. The top looks as great with a pair of jeans or pants as it does with a skirt or as a layering piece. In my opinion, it is a winner for ever wardrobe and a stylish must-have for every women over 40.
This basic investment piece is made in America. Like all other pieces by Covered Perfectly this "Sylvia" Draped Front Top doesn’t break the bank. It costs only $49.95, which isn’t expensive at all for an investment piece that one has for several seasons. Plus, High Latitude Style readers get a 20% OFF on up to two items!
