Sweet Pea Tops

This spring or summer you will absolutely want to include a sexy Sweet Pea top.  Sweet Pea Tops by designer Stacy Frati are also a great way to introduce sophisticated patterns into your wardrobe.  The Sweet Pea line is known for fabulous patterns on almost every piece.  Of course you can also find Sweet Pea in solid colors, but the pattern is a Sweet Pea signature.  Stacy Frati designs great pieces in a classic nylon mesh fabric which is extremely forgiving and comfortable to wear.  It was designed to be breathable in humidity.  The Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati line hails from Miami where humidity can be a sweltering.  Stacy also designed the Sweet Pea line to be not only wearable but also versatile.  She wants each piece to be something that you can wear to the office or to the carpool.  Sweet Pea tops are also designed in many amazing feminine styles.  Here are few examples of these fabulous Sweet Pea tops with classic, beautiful patterns in a variety of feminine styles.

Consider the Bell Sleeve top by Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati – This top features a beautiful black and fuscia filigree pattern with a wide solid fuscia accenting the narrow v neck.  True to its name the top features wide bell like sleeves that flare at the bottom of the sleeve.   Of course the signature nylon mesh fabric makes this top feel lightweight and comfortable.

For a great spring or summer top take a look at the Cap Sleeve Ruched Top by Sweet Pea.  This top features ruched or gathered fabric around the center of the bust in this top.  With a great element of contrast featuring a red contrasting fabric at the base of the v neck, this top incorporates lovely feminine touches.  We love the airy cap sleeve and the adorable navy nylon mesh fabric with a cute modern polka dot pattern.

Alternatively consider a great Sweet Pea tank for this summer.  Consider the Surplice V Neck Tank Top which we have in a couple of patterns the Wilma or the Felix.  The Wilma pattern features an ivory background with a dotted circle pattern in purple, teal blue and green pattern.  With purple accents around the neckline, we love the deep v neck look of the surplice neckline.  Alternatively, the Felix pattern features an elegant yellow background with a floral pattern featuring some flowers in sky blue and orange.  All of the flowers are outlined in black and of course the pattern also features a black accent around the neckline.

These are a few illustrations of how versatile and feminine the Sweet Pea line actually is.  Here are three tops that can be worn in a variety of different ways and in a variety of different temperatures.  We love layering the Sweet Pea tank under a blazer for a work meeting or wearing the Long Sleeve top with a cute skirt and boots during the winter.  In short, there are endless options for you to utilize a few great Sweet Pea tops in your wardrobe.

Sweet Pea Women’s Blouses

Sweet Pea Women’s BlousesSweet Pea Women’s Blouses are some of our favorite things!  The Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati line provides a great contrast to many of the other plain vanilla, traditional, boring lines with basic colors and fabrics.  Sweet Pea’s signature patterned designs on their signature nylon mesh fabric provides the ultimate distinctive comfort top.  We love the nylon mesh fabric which does not cling and is also super flattering and forgiving on all figures.  We also love the patterns!  Stacy Frati always makes sure that she has vibrant, colorful patterns with a feminine flair on just about every piece.   Sweet Pea’s patterns range from floral, feminine paisley, polka dots or even Asian inspired designs.  We love the bold colors and the contrast that is evident in every patterned Sweet Pea top.  You’re sure to love the versatility of each piece as well.  Sweet Pea blouses can easily transition from the board room to the soccer field for the different aspects of the modern woman’s life.

One of the other great things about the Sweet Pea line is that the styles are also extremely flattering.  Many of the classic Sweet Pea styles include fluid sleeves, often with feminine details such as a slit down the shoulder or a ruffle sleeve.  Another frequent detail is contrasting colors for the lining of the top.  Stacy Frati frequently plays with these contrasting colors and often has a contrasting hem on many tops. Sweet Pea styles also frequently include women’s blouses which feature great feminine styles including empire waists which often flair at the waist or ruching.  Alternatively, many styles also include more fitted styles featuring scoop necks or contrasting colors or patterns on the hem or sleeves.   Sweet Pea also frequently has great maxi dresses and sexy tank tops.   Designer Stacy Frati always makes sure to include lots of ruffles and feminine touches.   Sweet Pea’s fabric is distinctive too and is extremely comfortable and easy to wear.  It is relatively wrinkle free compared to traditional cottons and is still washable, although a tad more delicate than your basic cottons.

In today’s current market, Sweet Pea also stands out as a great line with extreme versatility.  It works well for the casual weekend and also is classy enough to wear at the office or dressy enough for a night out.  This versatility makes Sweet Pea’s women’s blouses a great buy when your clothing budget is tapped out which we all can appreciate in the current economy.

Of course this plenty of celebrity buzz about the Sweet Pea line too.  The Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati line has been featured on a variety of celebrities including the likes of Kate Hudson, Keri Russell, and Bonnie Hunt to name a few.    In short, we love Sweet Pea women’s blouses because they are truly great versatile pieces that work well for the everyday girl and the celebrity in all of us.  You really can have a flattering feminine style with exciting patterns and contrasting details that will make each of these tops statement pieces in your wardrobe for all facets of your life while still being easy to wear.

The key to a cool tank top is to pick breathable fabric that is also washable.  Dreamy Designer Sweet Pea’s signature nylon mesh is a great choice for summer. Like this 4 Tiered Ruffled Ruffle Tank in rain (blue).

Finding Fashion at the Beach

Don’t worry I am not talking about swimsuits just yet {prepare yourselves, the time is coming soon} but rather the cute things we wear on top of swimsuits. Since it isn’t quite full blown summer just yet any swim outing will probably require some sort of cover up and depending on the type of gal you are you might always require a swim cover up so lets look at some fashionable, versatile, and comfortable options.

Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress

Ok, first we have the full coverage of a maxi dress, which is super flattering for most body types. I love this Ella Moss Hollie Racerback Maxi Dress because it is casual enough for the beach yet elegant enough for a night out. I love pieces that can work for lots of occasions and this dress surly does that. Imagine it with aviator sunglasses,  beaded gladiator sandals and a bright yellow bag-cute!

Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress

If you want something that shows a little more leg, try this ultra cute Sweet Pea Sleeveless Empire Waist Dress. Again the empire waist is a flattering cut that hides imperfections, and can easily transition from beach to going out. This dress can completely change looks with different accessories. 

Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top

Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top

For those of you that are daring enough to show a  bit more leg, I love this Sweet Pea Tunic U Neck Top, perfect for throwing on over white jeans right after a fun day at the beach. The bold black and white print is classy yet youthful.

So what is your cover up style? Less is more? Or more is more?
