Look in your closet, the tops have it four to one. For every bottom we own, we probably own four tops. Purchasing a new top is a quick way to create a new look, a fresh look, with minimal expense.
I’ve coined the phrase Amazing Grace Tops when a top boasts four features:
- It enhances YOU; your skin tone and coloring look amazing.
Look for tops that make your eyes pop and accent it with tonal jewelry.
- It falls in a graceful drape that flatters (doesn’t try to hide) your curves.
Avoid boxy shapes and stiff fabrics. If you’re constantly pulling at or fluffing the top to make it stand away from puffy areas, it’s the wrong top for you.
- It’s long enough to make you feel comfortable and pretty with your every move.
Try it on in the comfort of your home; sit, stand, walk and move around in ways that reflect your real-life activities.
- It has a contemporary vibe.
A smaller investment than other wardrobe pieces, choose tops that are a little flashy, even trendy and well-embellished. Be playful!
If, in terms of fashion, you should ever feel “out of touch” or you look in your closet and it seems “out of date,” a true Amazing Grace Top just might save the day! What do you look for in a top?
