Thursday’s Economy Corner–Mini Mods

This week for our Economy Corner we are showing off something for the younger Mod Bod crowd. Our Mini Mod tops:

Here are some fun ideas on how to use these for all of the younger girls in your family!

  • Sundresses: Sometimes, when trying to buy dresses for our girls that are a little on the larger size (so they end up lasting more than one season) they can be too big, which can make them a bit low in the front. Layering a Mini Mod cami can solve that problem. And if you like for your girls to have sleeves on their dresses, just layer a Mini Mod cap sleeve so they can still stay cool in their sundresses while being modest.
  • The camis extend a T-shirt’s life after it has shrunk up in the wash!  That helps make sure you get a lot of value for your money.
  • Don’t forget the extra fancy touch of lace which all the girls just have so much fun with.

Summer Outfit Ideas

#1 Lace

Lace is a big trend this summer.  It takes a casual outfit up just a notch to give it more of a fashion forward and romantic look. We have a few tops with lace that would be fun to work into your summer outfits.

Perfect Cami w/Lace A-Perfect Cami w/Lace
Perfect Cap Sleeve w/Lace A-Perfect Cap Sleeve w/Lace
You can layer these tops under your favorite summer tee or under a lightweight short sleeve flowy cardigan. We love the lace paired with denim skirts, the fun floral A Line Skirt, a pair of great jeans or with dark wash bermuda shorts.

#2 Vintage
Vintage items from your grandmother’s old wardrobe or from your local consignment store are such fun. Although, sometimes the fabric can be a bit worn and VERY see through in the bright summer light. Fix this problem by layering a great lightweight cami underneath your vintage top!
#3 Bright, Fun Colors
Have fun with adding new colors to your wardrobe this summer! Our Perfect Tee is a great fit.  It’s a fantastic go-to item that is available in lots of fun, bright colors:

Thursday’s Economy Corner–Tulip Skirt

We love showing you how to get the most out of your Mod Bod pieces and we are back to do it again, this time with the Tulip Skirt!

The mid-calf length classic design of our jersey knit Tulip Skirt will never leave you lacking in style or comfort. Dressed up or dressed down, your relaxed yet classy sense of style will shine through in the Tulip Skirt. Check out the fun colors we have it in:

Here are some ideas on how to work it into your wardrobe:

  • It is PERFECT for bridal parties because of the wide range of sizes and the flattering fit. (The wide waist band is perfect to hide tummies, the flared A line cut hides bigger hips.) The women in your wedding party will love that they could wear the skirt after the wedding and will remember your perfect day every time they wear it, which would be a lot! You could add your wedding colors in the tops and it would make for the perfect economical wedding party outfit. Get one for yourself too!
  • Make it into the perfect casual, yet chic summer outfit by pairing it with a fun summer Cami or Racerbank Tank, a Mod Bod Tank, Cami or Cap Tease to go underneath.
  • Transform it into a beautiful spring outfit by adding a flowy cardigan with a Perfect Tee underneath and a great necklace.
  • In the winter you can pair it with a form-fitting turtleneck to make for a perfect sharp-looking, yet comfortable outfit during the colder months.
  • This is a great skirt to dress up a bit to use for work, church, meetings, etc. But you can also make it casual to wear on a date, lunch with friends or running around with the kids.

Check out all of the fun colors we carry and visit TheModBod.com to pick up the Tulip Skirt for your wardrobe!

Thursday’s Economy Corner–Perfect Tee

Did you enjoy Thursday’s Economy Corner last week?  We loved showing you how to get the most out of your Mod Bod pieces and we are back to do it again.

We are going to show you how to work the Perfect Tee into tons of different types of outfits.  We’ll show you how to wear the top throughout the whole year and we’ll also give you a few other fun tips.  Here we go!

Our Perfect Tee is not your traditional Tee.  Cut to fit you perfectly, with slightly longer sleeves to flatter, the Perfect Tee is made with our signature quality fabric and stitching.  Extra long length covers your stomach and back, and keeps the shirt in place through any activity.
 
Here are some ideas on how to work it into your wardrobe:
  • Spring & Summer!  You need to have this top in stock during the warmer months so it can be your ‘go-to’ item like it is ours.  It goes perfect with Bermuda shorts, capris, jeans, linen pants, floral skirts or under your favorite summer maxi dress.  We have it available in 9 colors with some fun new spring colors.
  • Swim Cover Up:  The owner of Mod Bod swears by using the Perfect Tee as a swimsuit cover up.  It is perfect for putting over your suit so you don’t get burned when outside in your suit with your kids.  Pair it up with some board shorts or a swim skirt or capris for the perfect swim suit cover up.
  • Versatile: We love the Perfect Tee because you can leave it ‘as is’ for a great casual look or dress it up to match the occasion you are dressing for.  Layer it with a great jacket, beautiful accessories and sharp looking skirt for a more dressed up look. You can even put on a really nice pair of denim jeans, heels, a Perfect Tee and flowy cardigan for a dressed up casual look.  This top can be fit into all of your different outfits for any occasion.
  • Colder Months: We know some of our customers don’t like buying items that will only last them a month or two out of the year. The great thing with these Perfect Tees is that they can be used year round.

Check out all of the fun colors we carry and visit TheModBod.com to pick some up for your wardrobe!

 

Must Have Top for Summer: Our Tanks

Summer is officially here and our tanks always become the most popular item with our customers! Let us show you how you can work them into your wardrobe:

#1 Layering: The extra long length in our tank keeps you covered. When paired with our lighter weight Banded Cardigan, it keeps you cool enough for a summer outfit! It makes for a sharper look when going to a nice party, meeting or out on a date night.

#2 Sports: When exercising, it is nice to be able to worry only about exercise! Not to be tugging and pulling on your workout clothes to make sure they are laying flat, looking nice and covering enough skin. This is why our customers love our tank and how it has extra coverage while still keeping you cool!

#3 Swimsuit Cover: The Perfect Tank provides extra coverage in the neck, arms, and back, while maintaining the cool comfort of a tank. It is a fantastic layering piece or swimsuit cover to use this year by the pool!

Check out all the *NEW* colors we have in for the spring/summer line:

Be sure to pick some up for yourself!

Thursday’s Economy Corner – Banded Cardigan

We are starting a new trend here on the Mod Bod Blog, Thursday’s Economy Corner, where we will show you how to get the most out of your Mod Bod pieces.

We’ll show you how to work them into tons of different types of outfits, how to wear the item throughout the whole year and give you a few other fun tips.

Banded Cardigan

(available in Magenta, Black & Brown)

For our first week we are going to highlight the Banded Cardigan, which is such a perfect key piece to have in your wardrobe. It’s a piece that will always stay in style, that you can wear from winter to summer and that you can use to fit into your own personal styles.

Here are a few of our ideas:

  • Spring! We never know if it will be warm, rainy, cool, hot or (even sometimes) snowy! Layer our cardigan over your new maxi dresses, short sleeved tops and tanks that you have been waiting to wear all winter long.
  • Cool Summer Night: Cropped Pants, Great Fitting T Shirt & Banded Cardigan. A chunky fun necklace would be a perfect accessory in this outfit.
  • Extra Layer for the Beach: Early in the morning, late at night and even on windy days during our beach vacations it can be a bit chilly at times. The Banded Cardigan is the perfect layering piece that looks a bit more sophisticated and fun.
  • New Fall Outfit: When we are busy helping our kids with back to school shopping we wish we could buy a new wardrobe as well! But something just as simple as putting a great belt over the buttoned up cardigan in order to to accentuate your waist can help you feel like you have something new for yourself!
  • Work Wear: If you have meetings or days at work when you can be a bit more casual and put away the suit jacket for a bit, pick up a cardigan! It still looks sharp and chic, but pulls outfits together. A great addition to add to the cardigan is a fun scarf. There are scarves for winter, fall and even lighter weight ones for spring.
  • Versatile: The look of a cardigan can vary depending on how many buttons you button. If you button it all the way, you can add an interesting belt or a scarf, like we suggested earlier. For a more casual look, leave it open and add some interesting jewelry at the neck line.
  • All Different Occasions: Cardigans are perfect for a cold winter day with jeans, with a fancy skirt for a nice party, over a pretty dress, with a pencil skirt at work or as a layering piece during the transitional months.

You are sure to get every single penny’s worth when adding the Banded Cardigan to your wardrobe. It is one of the most versatile and important pieces in a woman’s wardrobe!
