Today, I wanted to show you a few summer looks based on our Wrap Styles.
Pink and Floofy
Summer is the time for bright, happy colors. My happy color is black, but let’s not let that get in the way. For the first (and second) look, I went with our pink Wrap-Cut Top. This super-cute style is best made with light cotton jersey. I used an old T-shirt for this pink top just because it had a cool print! The top features a lace-bound neckline and a wrap-cut front. For this look, I paired it up with two layers of skirts. I took a tight jersey skirt I usually wear under dresses that fly, and wore a tulle petticoat over it. Someone might say that’s an improper way to wear clothes, but I say who cares. If it looks good, rock it. And this definitely does. The tulle petticoat is a basic peasant skirt, and nothing actually indicates that I originally figured I’d wear it hidden under knee-length dresses. Worn as an outer layer, it’s cute and girly. This look is a bit young for me, but I’d still wear this out on a day I felt like rocking pink.
When You’re Goth As F**k But You Still Gotta Work
The cute pink top may not be entirely office-friendly with its skull print. The design is, though. Made with a single color, this can work as casual office-wear. For the second look, I wanted to take the top from cute to corporate. I paired it with a bondage-inspired pencil skirt with loads of details. This kinds of skirts are a lot of fun to wear: you can hang every piece of chain you own from it, or go entirely sans. I chose to wear one for an understated look. Zipper sandals bring more detail to the look while still keeping it at least semi-professional.
Hoods bring a touch of mystique to any outfit. They’re also great for hiding unco-operative hair. For the last of today’s summer looks, I chose to do something with our Hooded Wrap Top. I haven’t featured this top as much as I should have: it’s the kind of top you can just pull on and forget, and making looks with it is hard. I mean, how many skirts can I pair this up with?
Today, I wore the top with a tight jersey skirt. I love the way a tight skirt leaves room for the asymmetrical cut of the top, and allows it to flow. For this look, I tied one loose end of the top’s hem into a simple knot at the waist to give it more detail.
I love this look, though hoods are a bit challenging for me to wear. This is super-comfy, and looks really good.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s summer looks.
Until next time.
