One of my favorite go to looks is an oversized top or a high low cut top paired with leggings or skinny jeans. It just balances an outfit. One of my rules (ha! Yes I have these fashion rules that I personally follow) is if you have on a fuller bottom (think joggers, maxi skirt, boyfriend jeans) then pair it with a tighter top. On the flip if you have on tight skinny jeans add a looser top (high low, off the shoulder, tunic). A full or flowy top with a flowy skirt or baggy jeans is too hobo and gives you no definition. Tight pants with a tight top only ok if you are in your 20s and going clubbing (those days are long gone for me LOL). Got it? This might seem like obvious advice to most people but so often I’ll see a great top that could be styled so much better just by following these rules. Trust me!
I had read mixed reviews before buying this top. Some loved it while others said it was very boxy and had no shape. A lot of Free People pieces are like this. Flowy, oversized and baggy. It just comes down to how you are going to style it. I wore mine with skinny jeans and a higher peep toe. Some height to a shoe helps elongate the body and makes you look more proportioned. I love the light material on this top for summer but I know this will look great worn under vests, cardigans and jackets for the cooler months. It also comes in a ton of colors. For size reference I got an XS.
Short and sweet today! Hope you all are having a great week! Good news, I ate the last piece of Summer’s birthday cake tonight. Anyone else love and hate party leftovers? Love to keep eating it but at some point the indulging just needs to end!
PS. Erik got a photography book. Hopefully these pictures start coming out clearer!
