Style File: Switch Up That Top
This will be the first installment of my Style File series. I want to focus this series around little things you can easily do to switch up your look, change the feel of a space or room & style pieces that you already have in a new way.
I love outfits that not only look good but can reimagine a clothing piece you currently have hanging in your closet.
For example, I took this keyhole velvet halter top (that you would likely plan on wearing for a night out,) reversed the necktie & knotted it in the front with a bow. Not only does it make it aesthetically more interesting (to me,) it also covers up your chest a bit more. It’s fun & flirty without being “too much” for daytime. The key element (no pun intended,) is wearing a halter top that properly fits your bust. Since I’m on the smaller side in that department, I can get away with a bit more of a plunge. That being said, I’ve linked several different versions of this style below for every beautiful shape & size. And…if you plan on going out later, simply switch that tie back to it’s usual spot, lose the hat & you’re ready for Happy Hour or wherever your night takes you!
Astr ‘Velvet Burnout Halter Tank.’ This top is no longer available (Since it was my reimagined piece,) but I’ve listed similar selections here, here & here. I also found this beautiful plus size option as well as this one by City Chic.
Hudson Jeans ‘Collin Flap Skinny Jeans.’ They are slimming with a good amount of stretch to them, which is a MUST for me in the “skinny jeans” department. I love black jeans, they look a bit classier to me & the pocket detail provides more shape to your posterior. I mean who doesn’t want a better butt?
Sam Edelman ‘Blake Bootie.’ I get complimented on these soft suede booties every single time I wear them. The heel isn’t too high so they are comfortable to walk in & the pointed toe elongates your legs.
Diff Eyewear ‘Bella – Matte Black Frame- Pink Mirror Lens.’ I’d never heard of this brand before my sister-in-law gifted this pretty pair to me for Christmas. I love the gold detailing & colorful mirrored lenses. The BEST part, Diff is a charitable eyewear company. For every pair sold, they donate a pair of reading glasses. They’ve partnered with”Eyes on Africa.” A non-profit organization with the purpose of distributing glasses to communities in Africa where there is no vision care.
Vince Camuto ‘Mini Wool Square Stud Panama Hat’ (tan version linked.) I found alternative options here. My Hat Motto:“Having a bad hair day…add a structured hat! Need to make you outfit pop…add a hat! Weather not cooperating….add a…I think you get my point.”
Do you have an idea for the next installment of my Style File? Please share! I want this series to be as helpful as possible & that means I need your valued input.
Thank you for reading!
