My biggest wardrobe pet peeve (without a doubt) is a top that’s too short. Having a long torso, this has been an issue for me my whole life. Most of the time I don’t even consider a top unless it’s pretty long–but every once in awhile I’ll find a short one that’s so cute on the rack that it makes me forget all of my own rules. Then I take it home and instantly remember why I do NOT buy short tops…and I banish it to the back of the closet with all the others. I mean, you’d think I would learn!
Well one evening I was making the rounds on Instagram and came across a shop called Classic Dianne that makes shirt and dress extenders. A few minutes of research and I knew this was the wardrobe solution I’d been looking for FOREVER! Let me just show you how…
On the left you’ll see my t-shirt by itself. I know everyone is different, but for me, this is too short. I like to have a little more coverage (especially since I’m up and down with the kids all day) but for the most part, I just don’t think it’s a flattering length on my body type. Enter the Classic Dianne scalloped lace extender…and voila! A few extra inches of length, and some cute detail for an outfit that now looks far more put together.
One of the things I love about the Classic Dianne design is that it’s worn around your waist and not part of a tank top or camisole. It’s less bulky and easier to adjust the length by moving or rolling it up and down.
Pretty great, right? Well just wait–there’s more 🙂 This swiss dot sheer top is one of my all-time favorites, but it’s been sitting in my closet for years because it’s just too darn short. Well it was, anyway! I love the way the asymmetrical extender compliments the top and turns this into a whole new outfit.
Since receiving my first two extenders, I’ve been amazed at how many tops I’ve been able to revive from the “too short” section of my closet. And some tops can be worn with many different extenders, which makes them look like totally different outfits altogether. Next I want to add the black lace, knit, and fringe extenders to my collection!
