This month’s theme for the Ageless Style Group is sleeveless.
A lot of women in our age group have opted out of sleeveless styles because they don’t like how their arms look anymore.
My arms don’t really bother me. Thank goodness because the Texas summers can be brutal.
But I do understand being sensitive about parts of us that are going through the natural aging process.
That part for me is my tummy. I have always carried weight there.
At almost 64, I realize that no tunic, column dressing, all black outfit, or even a burka can totally hide it.
So while I don’t get too uptight about it showing, I sure don’t do anything to try and call attention to it.
So let’s dive in and see what we think.
Do you ever find a top that you like so much you buy it in every color?
That’s how I feel about this Vince Camuto Pin Dot Crepe de Chine Sleeveless Blouse. (I’m wearing a L)
Thank goodness it only comes in 2 colors.
I love polka dots in the summer.
This is a blouse is super versatile.
The colors are neutral.
You can wear it with slacks or a skirt.
Jeans or shorts.
Add a blazer, denim jacket or cardigan for warmth.
Which even though it is hot as blazes in Texas right now, it’s always a good idea to have that 3rd piece for the strong blowing AC in all our buildings.
I am wearing the navy with white dots over a pair of Style & Co High Rise Straight Jeans. (I’m wearing size 16)
And for a bit of fun, I added my red Taos Sneakers. This is my fun little splurge purchase for the summer! (Size 8.5 W – I usually wear 8 WW, but these don’t come in WW. 8.5 W fits great.
All the Tucks
After years of tunics over skinny jeans and leggings, we are now in a season of tucks….
For people like me that don’t want to call attention to their tummy, this can be challenging.
There is the front tuck, front tuck with belt, half tuck and just about every kind of tuck you can imagine.
Sometimes I like one of these on me and sometimes I don’t.
I’ve found that it depends on the style of the top – if it’s long, short, fitted or boxy.
And the style of the pants – high waisted, at the waist or lower.
In other words, you just have to experiment with what you have on and see what you like.
Out over the top of the jeans.
Front tuck with belt
Which do you like better?
