These are what I call a "busy" item...Its a bold fashion statement. You don't need much to jazz up an outfit...you can wear jeans, slacks, or even a skirt....basically anything! These tops should be the focus when putting together your outfit. These are figure flattering tops because you can disguise your extra tummy. Try to avoid tops that are too tight if you have a little extra in the middle like yours truely. LOL!
