Look Of The Week: Blue or Black - By Jennifer, From A Well Styled Life

Note from Pauline Durban Founder of Covered Perfectly - I love how Jennifer looks in the blue Fit and Flare, it really works well with her coloring. I'm always suggesting that women over 50 try something different to black. As we get older colors are so much better. Don't get me wrong, I wear a lot of black, but then I usually brighten it up with a Cascading Vest. Take a look at Jennifer in both colors and tell us what you think in the comments section. Over to Jennifer... Yesterday, we did a little Christmas shopping. The adults have all agreed to make it a “small gift” holiday since we just shared an expensive and fantastic holiday in Iceland for my 60th birthday. That gift ban does not include our Grandson so we are having a blast getting him things. I love shopping at Lakeshore Learning. It’s a teacher and school supply store, so their choices are different and better than regular toy stores. We got him some cool things that I’m excited to give him! It’s turned cold. Under my coat, I wore my Fit and Flare top by Covered Perfectly.

I fell in love with this top during the photo shoot for Covered Perfectly a few months ago when I got to try it on in many colors.

The practical me decided I had to own it in black and so it came home with me. It’s princess seams are slimming, then it flares out over my midsection which is a blessing these days. The 3/4 length sleeve covers what I want to conceal and helps me look taller.

Style Tip- 3/4 sleeves help you look taller.

Last week I got an email from Pauline, the owner of Covered Perfectly saying, “I want to get you in more colors. The next thing I knew this fit and flare top arrived in royal blue. I already loved the shape and found this color energizing! Its scoop neck is a perfect showcase for necklaces and scarves, so I tried several options. I like it with this crystal and faux pearl bib necklace but I wouldn’t add these silver hoops. The necklace has enough going on, and the earrings are just overkill. Then I tried it with my French Kande necklace and loved that combo. Since this pendant is long and the focal point is at waist level, I would wear the hoops with this necklace. I ended up wearing it with my silk scarf. I like the scarf and earring combo. This fit and flare top is a winner in any color with multiple ways to style it. They are machine wash, hang dry. Once they’re dry, I toss them in a warm dryer for a few moments to take the wrinkles out. I machine wash my fine knits and hang to dry. Once they’re dry, I toss them in a warm dryer for a few moments to take the wrinkles out. Voila, like new! A Well Styled Life readers receive a 20% discount on up to two items!
