Would Ya Ever?

I try to be careful when I’m giving fashion advice.  I have been guilty of telling women what some wardrobe “must haves”  are that they should be stocking their closets with.

 I do try and make sure they are sensible picks that will work on a variety of body types and ages.

Being the magazine junkie that I am, I’ve recently been scouring for some Spring inspiration.  I’ve been taking note of the “must haves” for this upcoming Spring season which have included pastel dresses, leather tops, printed suits, and….bralette tops!

Now as gorgeous as  Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2012 collection is, I just don’t see myself sporting the bralette top.  It was an interesting “must have” suggestion.  I can just picture me at work with my mid-drift exposed, the top of my Spanx showing  but hey, I’ll be wearing one of the must have looks of the season.  Perhaps when I was 20 I could have rocked this look??  Maybe they need to put warnings on some of these must have recommendations?  “Warning: Do not attempt to bare your mid-drift if you suffer from muffin top,bloating, lack of ab definition, or if you’re over the age of 25.”

By the way, I think these skirts are gorgeous!  But maybe just with a different top;-)

    I agree, a bralette top is definitely not something everyone could wear. Well, more like hardly anyone. I’ve been watching a lot of SATC lately and the only person who is made for this look, in my opinion, is Carrie 😉 No wonder, she is such a petite lady!

    You know, I was so glad when exposed midriffs finally went out of style… I really hope this trend isn’t coming back, it leads to far too many fashion don’ts! The skirts are stunning, though 🙂

    When I see those bralettes, I instantly think of Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, or of a top for an Indian saree. These would be excellent bathing suit tops!
