I fell in love with this top during a shopping trip with my bestie when she was in town last week. She always pushes me further out of my comfort zone when it comes to clothing (fact: she was the inspiration behind pegged jeans!) and I love her so much for it. The bubble hem and draped fabric of this piece are not usually characteristics I gravitate towards but when worn right, I think it is going to be a staple for Summer.
I chose a slightly wider leg jean/trouser to pair with this top in order to counterbalance some of the heaviness. Neutral, unobtrusive shoes add to the streamlined look and bold sunglasses draw the eye up. I also chose relatively unassuming accessories to allow the top to have all of the focus.
My favorite feature of this top are the side ties. It allows me to adjust the fullness of the top and adds some interest to the sides and away from the heavy drape in the front.
Another fun tidbit of this outfit is this “clutch!” It is actually a sunglasses case I got with a pair of Gucci sunglasses a while back that folds down into the shape you see here. I put a few cards and my lone house key in it for nights out and it acts as the perfect Gucci “clutch,” for free! I highly recommend asking for this sunglasses case the next time you purchase a pair in a department store.
Thank you so much for reading!
