Classics with a twist in high quality
I always look for high quality classic basic tops that don’t look dated, washed out or frumpy after a year or so. Over the years, Covered Perfectly has been a reliable source for me to get such high classic quality pieces with a modern twist that are made specially for women over 40.
What I love about this top
For this review I picked this teardrop top because I like modest cleavage and 3/4 quarter sleeves. This sleeve length is perfect to feature a nice watch, bangle or slim wrists. This length is practical at the office and at home alike. Key holes are a big trend right now. This teardrop like cutout is a classic so the top will still look classic in a year or two from now. I really like that the shirt is thin enough to be tucked in without adding bulk, but long enough to cover the bum when needed (see photo of me wearing leggings further down in this post). This means it can hide love-handles and/or wide hips.
Modest flash of skin is sexy, but office appropriate
I am always amazed about the softness of the fabrics of the Covered Perfectly pieces. This top also feels so nice on the skin like all the others I have. I ordered the top in size S. It fits perfect in the shoulders. The cutout is large enough to show some skin, but high enough to not show the “onset of the boobs.” Thus, it meets any work dress code, but also works for date night out.
It’s a perfect layering piece for women over 40
The product is a perfect layering piece for under a blazer or leather jacket on cold winter days. When taking off the blazer or jacket I still look posh chic and office appropriate. For me it is important to be able to adjust my clothes to different indoor temperatures. Lecture halls, meeting and seminar rooms are heated with a certain number of occupants in mind. They can be quite cool or warm when less or more people are in the room, respectively.
A real work horse for all kind of dressing situations
I wore the teardrop top at work with my baseball leather jacket for a posh chic Casual Friday look. The flattering side slits (photo below) permit wearing it with pants or jeans or even with leggings as well. It’s a perfect fit for my everyday life. I think this shirt is a perfect fit for all midlife women who love basics that work for layering for many dressing situations like work, going out, and the weekend. It’s available also in navy and this fall’s It color red.
Great price-performance ratio
I like that I can wear the shirt in all seasons. I expect to wear it for 2 to 3 years 2 to 3 times a month year round. The price is $49.95. Thus, the cost-per-wear would be below a dollar after about two years. According to my criteria, it’s a winner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this teardrop top to my best female friend.
In a nutshell: This Covered Perfectly teardrop top can be styled for all kind of dressing situations in midlife. It is a high quality, affordable, timeless wardrobe basic for women over 40 with a great price performance ratio.

Top of the World OOTDs
The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.
The winner of this week’s feature is Patty of Not Dead Yet Style, who submitted her winning post at the 133rd linkup party. This unusual color combination is very flattering on her. It’s a great photo too. Her locks and skirt wave so nicely in the sea-breeze.
The post From Runway to Street Style by Yvonne at Funky Forty became Top of the World Readers’ Fav as you clicked her post the most. I think she wore it better than the model. 😉
Cheryl, the blogger at Northwest Mountain Living became my favorite of last week’s party. I am a big fan of berets – I guess I have over a handful. I love how she styled hers with the flare pants and sequin sweater. Really posh chic.
