The holidays are always a time to see and be seen, for there's usually a never-ending list of functions and gatherings to attend for making merry. Most women typically feel the need to update their wardrobe a bit, since we want to look special and fashionable and not wear the same old boring thing we've worn before.
Good thing there's a place like j.e.m. apparel. They carry a wide selection of fun, flirty styles, perfect for most any occasion, at affordable prices. I recently had the chance to review the ultra-versatile Ruffled Tunic. Keep reading to learn more!
From the moment I found j.e.m. apparel's online store, I knew I had found a kindred spirit in Jenny Mauk, owner of j.e.m. apparel. Her sense of style and purpose for women's fashion sounded like something I have said to myself a thousand times:
"So if you're a woman who considers yourself young but not immature, fashionable but not a slave to the trends, and you're always on the hunt for the best deal that doesn't look like a bargain, then you've found not only your go-to shopping destination but a friend in me! I'm here to help you find exactly what you're looking for, recommend which jacket would look best with that skirt, and answer any other questions you may have."
After viewing the vast selection of timeless style and affordable clothing at j.e.m. apparel, I have to say that Jenny is truly a fashion maven. I loved the products offered in her store, for they are definitely chic without being overly trendy and are versatile enough to be worn at the office or while painting the town red.
Next, it was time to choose one item to review and in the end, I decided to go with the Ruffled Tunic. This women's top is super functional for you can wear it as a tunic over leggings, or if you love showing off your legs, wear it as a dress over tights! Personally, I loved wearing it with a great pair of swanky jeans and boots. This Jack by BB Dakota design, made of thick yet soft brushed cotton, has seaming at the natural waistline with pleats below and pearlescent snap closures on cuffs and down length of tunic.
I was very impressed at the quality of this garment, for the brushed cotton material was thick and perfect for fall and winter. I also loved the dark heather gray color which just happens to be my favorite color. This is a terrific shirt to wear around the holidays too if you are trying to de-accentuate your waistline. The natural waistline flares out after it hits your bustline, so if you gain a few pounds over the holidays, this tunic will help camouflage it.
The only thing I didn't care for about the Ruffled Tunic was that the bust area was a little too small. This tunic fit extremely well everywhere else, but pulled awkwardly tight around the bustline. Now, believe me, I wish it was because my boobs were big, but they're pretty average in my opinion. I'm typically a full "B" cup or small "C" cup. What's great though is that this can be fixed by wearing a camisole underneath and leaving a couple more buttons undone.
If you are wanting a few new pieces to add to your wardrobe so that you can look smashing at all of the upcoming holiday gatherings, then check out the fashions from j.e.m. apparel. These fun and flirty styles are all top quality, yet budget friendly and will have you looking great!
