Can you believe it is already May? Already, time for our style tip for women over 50! Well, this is a big month at our house. My youngest son’s birthday is May 1, he graduates from college a few days later, and hopefully soon will enter the professional world. We are very close to becoming legitimate empty- nesters!
My style tip this month is inspired by this tunic I recently found at Chicos. My eyes went to it immediately when I saw my favorite color on the rack…olive green has always been one of my best and really pops my hazel eyes. But, it was what I discovered as I pulled out the garment which has led to this style tip: IN ORDER TO GET THE MOST FLATTERING FIT, PAY ATTENTION TO THE DETAILS. This is not a typical long boxy tunic which often are not that flattering. Here is what the sides look like:
This long zipper goes up and down both sides and gives the most flattering fit I have seen in a tunic in a long time. I actually said WOA…when I saw it in the mirror. Zippers on the sides and seaming in key places can really work magic and do wonders for your body image. If you are curvy, like me, you look for those details. Always take the time to try a garment like this on when you notice it has some carefully placed detailing in it.
I also love these sleeves! A nice, little sexy detail. And with our humidity, it is a type of air conditioning!!
I am wearing the tunic with my JJill
Leggings and ROCKPORT TOTAL MOTION nude flats. The purse is from Elaine Turner about three years ago. Her raffia handbags are great for summer style.
Below, you will find the tunic, JJill leggings, and Elaine Turner purses. But, take this away with you for May…look for these details…zippers, seams, carefully placed pockets for a great fit! In fact, come back here in a couple of days and I will show you another top which has details that does the same! Have you seen tops like this with zippers on both sides?
