Look of The Week: Classic Henley

Dressing for a casual day running errands doesn’t mean looking sloppy to me. I’ve recently added more sporty looks to my wardrobe, but I still like them to feel polished.

I love navy this year. It’s more flattering than black on my complexion and feels less intense. Black says serious and navy says casual.

I love this classic henley top from Covered Perfectly. The color makes my eyes pop and it’s A-line shape floats away from my middle, rather than cling.

Tight clothes that show lumps and bumps are not my favorite these days. Those extra 6 pounds I’m wearing are all around my waistline:(
I don’t want baggy clothes either because those make me look larger than I am. Subtle, strategic volume is what I look for these days.

I love the crisp look of navy with white. Since my legs are slim I chose these Metro leggings in white. If I had heavier thighs I’d choose darker pants.

Style Tip: Light colors advance and make things appear larger. Dark colors recede and make things appear smaller.

It’s 3/4 sleeves help me look taller, are a perfect showcase for my bracelets and the v-neck is a good balance for my wide shoulders.

I paired these with my navy, canvas sneakers from Target. The little bit of matching helps me feel a bit polished. My kind of sporty.

    That’s a great colour for you and the shape is flattering…you are very photogenic too!

    I do not like that our mid sections seem to be expanding and am trying hard to whittle away those pesky extra few pounds by going back to WW point counting and walking.
    So far it is working…
