Note from Pauline Durban, Founder and President of Covered Perfectly - Kristin is a new to Covered Perfectly. As you can see she is from a warmer climate. She does show how great the wrap over looks with a skirt, ours just might be a bit longer, well mine would be :-) Either way, the wrap over is a fabulous design as you can see from the pictures below.
Over to Kristin...
Right before I was about to hop on a flight to the States and re-become Floridian for a few weeks, I was contacted by Pauline Durban from Covered Perfectly. As it turned out, the timing couldn't have been better, because Covered Perfectly is a company that makes perfect pieces for both fit and flattery - something invaluable while traveling. And of course, for any other time too.
Durban created the company after moving from the UK to the USA in 1992, with a view to creating comfortable and flattering pieces for women over 50, something that she herself had always felt she struggled to find. With Covered Perfectly
, Durban has absolutely achieved her goal, and the company makes all of its garments right here in the USA! While at 46, technically I'm still a few years shy of Durban's stated demographic of 50, it hardly matters.
Really, the only requirement here is that you are a fan of well-made, easy to wear pieces that you can just put on and go - something that quite frankly, has no age demographic. It's this wonderful (and elusive) quality of a knit piece that delivers such ease that led me to choose the Wrap Over Top
from their MicroModal Collection
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package containing the top (okay, it was actually the second
thing - after the gorgeous
saturated teal color), was the quality of the modal jersey.
These days, doesn't it feel like we're always being disappointed by thin, "peelie-wallie" (as they say in Scotland) jersey knits that show your absolutely every lump and bump? If I had a nickel for every terrible jersey maxi dress I've relegated to the "NO WAY" pile in a shop, I'd be a very wealthy woman. But not this time.
has a great hand to it, and just the right weight to the fabric to give a beautiful drape without pulling or feeling heavy. It also has a sewn-in panel, taking away the need to layer it over a camisole.
I paired this top
with a white denim skirt; white and teal are a really lovely pairing for warm climate dressing. Gold accessories also add a glow of warmth against the teal. I had packed my favorite gold and turquoise earrings to pair with this top, it really looked like they were made for each other!
