I appreciate each and every share. Thank you!

Covered Perfectly Tops

So what makes a top better for us older women? The company Covered Perfectly thinks they have it all figured out! The whole idea of the tops that are made under the Covered Perfectly Brand is that they cover the parts you want covered just perfectly. That means the sleeves are a little longer and even the body portion is longer. They also make sure that the material is super soft against your skin.

The three of us were lucky enough to partner with Covered Perfectly back in the spring of this year. However, some of the tops we wore then (you can view those posts here, here, and here) are not available anymore. That’s because when you have a good product, it can be hard to keep them in stock.

Thus the three of us were given some newer styles of tops to review for your pleasure. I wanted to show the same tops styled 2 different ways so you could get an idea of the different possibilities! And the greatest part of this is that you can benefit also. Jodie’s Touch of Style readers get a 20% discount on up to two items! Use the discount code JF20 when you check out at Covered Perfectly. There are several styles to choose from, and the discount will apply on up to two items. You may also take advantage of the buy 2 get the 3rd  FREE special. Only one of the discounts will work.

For some extra variety, check out Cathy and the shirt form Covered Perfectly that she wore here! Cathy is another over 50 blogger and is wearing a different style of shirt as she goes to the park with her granddaughter!

Jodie (50’s) Casual Outfit: I chose this keyhole tunic for my top. The most popular way to wear a tunic is with leggings, so I pulled out my LuLaRoe print leggings!!

I think of the cut outs in a top as a newer, contemporary detail. What is really nice is that they are positioned so that my bra straps don’t show.

The body of the tunic is slightly flared which makes for a flattering silhouette, and absolutely perfect to pair with any leggings or skinny jeans.

For reference, I’m wearing a size small and I am 5’2″. The hem comes to mid thigh on me, whereas it looks a little shorter on the models on the company website.

Jodie (50’s) Dressy Outfit: I actually tried wearing the top as a dress for this category in my initial attempt. You can see the original photo in the collage at the top of this post and the first one below. However, even with the extra coverage from the OTK boots, I felt like it was just too short for comfort. And I wasn’t sure that women my age could relate.

So I kept the same components, but added a swing skirt under the tunic that was the same color. I was going to try a pencil skirt, but I ended up liking this one better. I felt like it almost looked like a one piece dress with 2 layers.

Then I wanted to see about adding a skirt over top of the tunic. Because the material of the tunic is very soft and drapey, and the skirt was an a-line, I think it turned out just fine. So go ahead and tuck in your tunic from Covered Perfectly—then you can treat it just like a normal top.

Nancy (60’s) Casual Outfit: Nancy’s shirt is called the Twofer. Of course it took me a couple minutes to figure out that it was just one top made to look like a top & jacket layered together.

The shirts are attached at the side seam, so they drape very nicely.

And you can see how the back portion is longer than the front. Since Nancy is only 5’0″ tall, even the front portion is long enough for her to pair with her leggings.

The under layer of this top that has the cowl at the neckline is quite generous. It was great that we were able to tuck part of it into Nancy’s bra so when she leaned forward, there was no exposure.

Nancy (60’s) Dressy Outfit:  For Nancy’s fancier outfit, I pair this shirt with her velvet trousers & heels! Now if you’re wondering why someone would want a shirt that is a 2 in 1, I think it could be perfect for some women.

If you’re one of those people that love the look of a jacket, yet find it too constricting; then this could be perfect for you.

Or if you’re a woman who tends to be warm all of the time, then this top could look layered without having all of the extra warmth!

This top comes in a couple other color pairings, if you aren’t a fan of green! But beware, I’ve been seeing a lot of green in the stores lately!

Charlotte (70’s) Casual Outfit: I picked out the square neck top for my mom. For the casual pairing, I added her leopard print jeans to create a fun element to this top.

Like all of Covered Perfectly’s tops, these are made to be long in the torso. My mom is 5’4″, so we decided to tie up the side with an elastic to make it look like ruching.

The material in these tops are a dream to wash. They don’t wrinkle when I take them out of the dryer, and yet they stay so soft!

Charlotte (70’s) Dressy Outfit: Since the top is a solid color, I decided to add in a print skirt. Most of us think of a maxi skirt as a summery item. But since you could add layers under the skirt, it can be perfect for cooler days, too! (And notice that the Covered Perfectly ad on my sidebar features my mom—isn’t that cute?)

Mom just made this print maxi skirt for herself. She had extra material leftover, so in future posts, you may notice more of this print!!

My mom’s decolletage is so pretty so I wanted to show it off. I know mom always feels the need to cover it up with jewelry. However, you can see that you notice the gorgeous color of the top without the extra accessories.
