Going undercover

Thursday, June 09, 2016

The warm weather is finally here (hooray!), but for many  women the thought baring arms or legs is horrifying.

Although I encourage my clients to love their body and wear what they feel good in, I understand the dilemma.  Some women feel super comfortable wearing short skirts and sleeveless tops (and I applaud them!) and others want to cover up the areas they are unhappy with.  I get this.  We are all different---what feels right to one woman may not work for another.  However if you feel more secure with a bit of coverage, here are some ideas for looking stylish and staying cool this summer.

Sheer top layered over a tank --a print like the one shown here will camouflage even more than a solid. 



Lightweight poncho--try a linen blend
This can be worn over a tank or even a sleeveless dress.



Flutter sleeves--this loose sleeve is very cool and comfortable while providing arm coverage.



Cold shoulder  --this design is very "in" right now. 
It gives fabulous arm coverage but the "shoulder peek" is sexy!



Maxis --one of my favorite pieces is a "tee-shirt maxi". With this one you get both arm and leg coverage. 



Peasant top
A lightweight gauzy peasant top will keep you cool and comfortable. 



Kimono wrap
This piece is fun and stylish while covering the arms beautifully. 



Pashmina --a beautiful silk or linen pashmina will look gorgeous draped over your shoulders.



So the bottom line is, there are no rules. Whether it's covering up your arms with a wrap or rocking them in a sleeveless top, wear what makes YOU feel fabulous, comfortable and self-confident.

  1. These are great options! I'm actively seeking out the right cold shoulder look- good alternative to the whole off the shoulder look that means those of us with, ahem, gravity issues, can still wear comfy undergarments and participate in the fun trend! Thanks for the inspiration.☺️

    1. Thanks for the comment Naomi! I can't do the off-the-shoulder either. Strapless bras just aren't working these days :) Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! XO
