Covered Perfectly for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: The Dressy Version
We were gifted these shirts from Covered Perfectly, but I was not paid for writing my posts. All of our feelings are honest and true!
Quote of the day: “If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.” Coco Chanel
If you are nearing “middle” age then you might have heard of the company Covered Perfectly. The company concentrates on shirts that are made with 40+ women in mind (they cover some of the arms and are long enough in the torso). Not that they can’t be worn by younger women too! You can see Pauline’s story (the founder) here. I realize that you may consider them “just a t-shirt”, and you could be right. But fine, let me show you how a t-shirt can be styled for many occasions starting with a dressier one in this post! I did a series on styling a t-shirt with different items back about a year ago starting here. And a couple of specials from the company for my readers are at the bottom of the post.
50’s Outfit: If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen this outfit when we went to Maggianos for a date night!!

60’s Outfit: We added the metallic accessories to add some glitter and sparkle to Nancy’s skirt & top. The clip on her scarf is a great way to keep the scarf in place!

70’s Outfit: Mom felt more comfortable wearing a tank top under her shirt (for all the posts). I bought her this necklace for Christmas as I know how she likes to “cover” her decolletage.
And we made mom’s scarf into a DIY kimono/wrap by knotting the ends to make sleeves. Here’s a Pin off Pinterest that shows what I’m trying to say in more detail!

The 50’s thoughts on her open shoulder shirt: I think every woman should have one of these shirts! I’ve never heard a woman complain about how bad her shoulders look, so why not show them off? This shirt is perfect because you can still wear your bra, the underarms don’t show and it’s FUN!! The only drawback was these shirts don’t come in petite, so I did have to shorten mine by about 3 inches.
