There’s something about wrap tops that are universally flattering. Personally, I believe it’s because these tops are available in a number of versions yet universally highlight or create the illusion of a trimmer waist and an hour glass figure. Bonus is that the bows tied on these tops don’t feel juvenile, but can work for people of all ages.
Speaking of bows, they use to make me feel juvenile when I was in high school. They use to bring me back to the days when I had to wear empire waist dress that tied in the back with big fat bows. Every time I had a piano recital or anything remotely special happening my mom would drag out those itchy, poofy dresses.
I remember hating wearing those dresses after the glamour of it wore off the first time. Rather than feeling like a princess, I felt uncomfortable and felt silly after wearing the dresses for the umpteenth time. Thankfully those days are long behind me… I think. Here’s to knocking on wood so I don’t jinx myself. With my luck, I’ll end up in a part of a bridal party where the bride chooses a dress a la Rachel from Friends style. Then, I’ll really be fit to be tied!
