Fashion Fridays with Melanie: "Top" Tips
- Button-up. A button down shirt is a great solution because it goes with jeans, skirts and dress pants and looks so much better than just a plain tee. Make sure not to choose something too baggy; instead look for something that just skims your body. I love the Non-Iron shirts from Brooks Brothers because they come in four different cuts, so there’s one for every body type. They are a bit of an investment, but honestly the fact that you never have to iron them, totally makes it worth it. I would opt to leave them untucked so it doesn’t cling to your tummy.

- Go Corporate. Jackets are no longer just for the boardroom. They should be you go-to item when getting dressed. They instantly make you look put together and they are available at virtually any price point. Everyone should have a great black blazer and then a couple of others in different colours to keep things interesting.

- Go with the Flow. Another option is a printed, flowy top. Don’t choose one with empire waist as you may encounter some folks asking you when your baby is due – even if you’re not pregnant. Instead, select a top that doesn’t cling to you but just flows over your body. The pattern will also help to camouflage any bumps or lumps.
