Today I’m sharing the magic of asymmetry. Welcome to Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my collaboration with Pam from Over50Feeling40. You’ve hit your Style Sweet Spot when your appearance is sending the message you intend, and you feel confident that you look your best.
Style Tip- wearing texture and pattern near your face, reduces the appearance of facial texture/wrinkles.
I love its off-center neckline. The diagonal seam down the center repeats on the back and is very slimming.
Style Tip- Diagonal seams and asymmetrical lines in garments are more slimming than straight lines.
Here’s a close-up of the texture. It’s form-fitting but skims rather than clings and the pleats help hide our lumps and bumps. Artful Home carries 3 different style tops in this fabric, and it comes in 4 colors. I made need the white one for summer:)
The hemline and sleeves have a lettuce-edge, which is pretty and feminine. Feminine is not a big part of my style recipe, so I keep it to a minimum. I love how the rolling hemline adds softness to its simple fit. A straight hemline would have looked boxy. The 3/4 sleeves are a perfect way to showcase bracelets.
Style Tip- 3/4 length sleeves help a woman appear taller.
White is appropriate year round and feels fresh with spring right around the corner. These are my Soft Surroundings, Metro Leggings. I love that they have no front zipper or snap, so don’t add bulk to my tummy. They’re a pull-on style with 3 way stretch and very comfortable. You’ll be seeing me wearing these a lot!
It’s such a warm, sunny day, I broke out some sandals and my vintage, Kate Spade wicker handbag. Nothing says Spring to me like wicker!
Now lets pop over to see how Pam hits her Style Sweet Spot!
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
