Warmer weather means lighter – and sometimes skimpier – clothes. But for those of us who don’t want to expose too much of our bodies it can be hard to find flattering pieces that are still summery. Like many women over 40 I don’t want to reveal too much flesh but I still want to stay cool and chic. One of my favourite items that looks stylish, hints at a shape underneath but still keeps you relatively covered is a kaftan or poncho style top.
I found this little gem when it was still cold but loved the shape and the fabric so much I snapped it up to add to my Summer capsule wardrobe, as it was such a bargain (under £40). Sadly it has since sold out, although still available in black, but I have found a selection of similar styles for you below.
Styling tip; remember the rule about volume; if you wear a floaty or full volume top keep the bottom half slim or fitted and vice versa.
I accessorised with these gorgeous fresh water pearls from the CapsuleAccessories Collection.
Despite this blouse being sheer it is still flattering because of the fitted camisole underneath it.
This red tonal scarf is also new in at CapsuleAccessories.
