Style Drama from Covered Perfectly

Have you tried the draped front top from Covered Perfectly?

Mr. Mickey and I had our normal dinner date on Friday evening so I decided to surprise him with a look that is a bit more daring than my usual.

I am wearing my new draped front top from Covered Perfectly with a very old layered sheer skirt from T.J.Maxx. The midi skirt has an uneven ruffled hem which are two things that are totally out of character for me.

The shoes are Chinese Laundry via Ross. The multicolored metals clutch bag is from a long ago market trip to Atlanta. The long dangle earrings and huge antique ring were gifts from Mr. Mickey.

When I wear black, I wear a brighter lip color and more intense eye makeup for evening. With the large dangle earrings, I chose not to wear a necklace because that would have been too much clutter in one place. Typically I wear this skirt with high heels but the platforms seemed more playful and modern with this draped top.

When you wear one column of color including unrelated pieces, mix the textures so that it looks more finished. For example, this top is made from sleek smooth material and the skirt is made from a sheer crepe layered fabric. Another example would be black jeans with a silky black tank top. When you combine two pieces of the same color and the same fabric it is normally too obvious that the colors do not match.

I love the buttery feel of Covered Perfectly tops. They are great for layering and the necklines are always flattering. They are also made in the USA! Use the promo code FNF20 to receive a 20% discount when you shop with Covered Perfectly
