Be The Real Thing| My Trip To World Of CokeAugust 20, 2020
53 Birthdays | Reflecting On The SeasonsSeptember 10, 2020
The events of 2020 have altered our lives in a host of ways; including our jobs and our entertainment. I’ve noticed a huge shift in my wardrobe to flow with these changes. The vibe is just A LOT more casual.
Of course, it’s not too hard to put two and two together…we just don’t have many events to dress up for right now. So, it’s not the least bit surprising that we are all falling back to our favorite, go-to fabric – denim.
Denim has made its way into just about every corner of the world. And, I must admit that I share the world’s fascination with this fabric; however, I seldom hold to the typical t-shirt and jeans combination…even now.
Denim has the ability to lend casual ease to almost any outfit. That’s why I knew this denim top had great potential as a staple wardrobe piece the first time I set eyes on it.
I believe that every woman should have at least one denim top in her wardrobe. Whether worn alone or layered over other pieces, the denim top adds structure and polish without looking too formal.
What To Look For In A Denim Top As A Wardrobe Staple
- Look for clean lines and tailoring.
- The seams and trim of this top are slimming because they draw the eye to look vertically.
- The shoulder seam should rest on top of the shoulder.
- Look for a tapered shape.
- Make sure that your denim top has tapered sides, rather than a straight boxy shape.
- Look for one unique detail on a staple piece.
- Details, like the back of this top, bring visual interest.
- Just make sure that the details do not add bulk or frump.
Ultimately, your wardrobe staple pieces should be items that you go to again and again. Why?…because you know they look good on you and they are streamlined enough to provide the foundation for new, exciting outfits.
My Staple Verse For This Season
I guess these fashion tips mirror my life during this shifting season. Just like a well-constructed wardrobe, my life must also rest on some strong staple truths and there is one verse that continues to keep me anchored.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Twenty-twenty has been a year of canceled plans and seemingly closed doors. I’m so glad God has plans for me when all I see is an empty calendar.
Every time I’m tempted to wallow in self-pity or disappointment over this season, I remind myself that God’s plan holds hope and a future for me.
Yep, I think I better entrust my plans to Him and build on that promise…and I hope you can find the grace to do the same. ❤
