Thursday’s Economy Corner–Kali Cowel Neck Top

Fall is coming, Back to School Shopping is in full swing and this week we are featuring a great top: our Kali Cowel Neck Top. Here is how you can get the most out of this top in your wardrobe:

  • Kali is one of our favorite fall pieces.  Kali has an every day feel with a cowl neck, front tuck pleats and 3 quarter sleeves all in a soft draping fabric.  Perfect every day shirt for running the kids around, family pictures, date night or out with friends.
  • Don’t be fooled!  This is sure to add a touch of class to your wardrobe. Pair this with our pencil skirt and it creates the perfect outfit for work, church or a day full of meetings.
  • The band at the bottom of the shirt is very slimming and gives more room around the stomach area. Perfect for hiding any issues you think you have, this is a very flattering shirt on the figure!
  • You can add another long sleeve underneath to make it really warm for the cold months.  In the fall, it is perfect on its own or with a cami layered underneath. For the transitional months into fall or spring, you can wear this on its own with the sleeved pushed up.  It is the perfect transitional season piece!

It comes in these colors:

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–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.

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!

Must Have Skirt for Summer

Our Katie Jean Skirt is a MUST HAVE for this Summer! Why? It’s a much lighter-weight fabric than you probably think of with a Jean Skirt which allows for breathability to keep you cool during the hot months. Pleats are perfect to flatter all body types and this skirt has fabulous pleats. The length covers enough to be modest but at the same time is a shorter skirt to match the hotter weather.

Here are some fun ideas on what to pair it with:

#1 A great fitting T, any of the tops from our Basics Line would be perfect for a casual look that could be dressed up with some fun jewelry.

#2 We think this skirt paired with some bohemian or gladiator inspired sandals would make for a really great look.

#3 If you need it to be a bit more dressier you can pair it with our Lacey Front Cami & Banded Cardigan OR our Gathered Vest and Bio Wash Cap Sleeve.
