Fashion Closet: Tops

Fashion editor Celia Smith shows you how to top it off this season!

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] Tops. How are you topping it off this season? A blouse? A tunic? A t-shirt? A tank top? Me? I like my tops cropped and deep veed. [NOISE] The deep vee elongates. The neckline and gives it a sort of balletic feel. The crop top is flattering on any figure. You're only showing just a sliver of skin which can be super sexy on any body type. Triangle shapes emphasize your top half with structured shoulders and beaded tunics that will balance out your bottom half. For bustier babes, fashionable one shoulder blouses will show just the right amount of skin, while keeping your upper half looking flawless. Looking to accessorize this look? Match a pair of bold statement earrings that will carry your blouse from day to night. For fuller figured beauties, the summer is in full gear, so flirt away in blouses with lower necklines that skim right over the bum. Pick up lighter fabrics that will leave you cool. Calm and collected at your next summer soirée. For ladies with an hourglass figure, slouchiness is not allowed. However, play up your top with a cropped halterneck that is fitted and fab.
