The Spaghetti Strap Top is a wondrous thing. It goes with everything and anything, it’s easy to sew, and even comfortable. Today, I wanted to show you just a couple of ways to rock the classic. My photo session got completely out of hand, so instead of three outfits, you get seven!
Our Pretty Basic Spaghetti Strap Top is launched today, and on flash sale for all VIPs. I thought this is reason enough to celebrate with loads of spaghetti strap styles.
Warm in Blue
One of the easiest ways of creating spaghetti strap styles is to wear a top over a light long-sleeved Tee. I do this all the time. A mesh top is very see-through, and demands another layer. A spaghetti strap top offers just enough coverage, but doesn’t completely hide the mesh. For this look, I picked a petrol blue mesh top. I wore it under a black top embellished with a bit of lace, and paired the tops with my long velvet skirt.
This style is really comfy. It’s perfect for going shopping, and as fall draws near, the light layers offer much needed warmth.
Shrug It Up
Spaghetti Strap Tops are often low cut and revealing. As the weather turns cooler, it’s nice to cover up a little. For the second look, I wore my favorite shrug over a spaghetti strap top trimmed with blue lace. I really like the way the lace peeks out just a little, giving a splash of color to the black outfit. One drop of contrast catches the eye far better than many!
I wore a black sash as a belt to hide the elastic waist of the skirt. I secured the belt to place with a brooch to give the outfit another detail.
This style is also super-comfy, and perfect for casual outings.
The weather may be changing, but days can still be warm. A spaghetti strap top is still warm enough indoors. For the next look, I picked out a skirt I haven’t shown you yet. It will maybe come out as a pattern soon!
I like to pair fabrics that have the same consistency. Synthetics go with synthetics and cotton with cotton. All the elements of this style are made with viscose jersey, which is my favorite material. It’s light, it breathes, and it’s nice and soft. It’s perfect for summer clothes, such as spaghetti strap tops. I made this one a bit longer so I can wear it over skirt waists.
The skirt is made of two layers. Beneath, there’s a tight fitted shell. Over it goes a contrast colored layer with a ruffled hem. For this outfit, I gathered the hem and secured it with a brooch to add more detail to the otherwise basic look. The skirt is really cute worn as is, too, and it goes with all of our basic tops.
This style works really well with my personal taste, only I might wear a black mesh top under it. I get cold easily and it makes me all whingy!
Black and White Skulls
Basic tops love corsets, and that’s why you’ll see a lot of spaghetti strap styles on darkly inclined ladies. A skimpy top doesn’t wrinkle up under a tight corset, and feels comfortable and cool at crowded clubs. I paired a black spaghetti strap top up with a long peasant skirt and our Reversible Corset. The outfit is classic and comfortable, and the long full hems give it a romantic feel.
This style can be completed with jewelry, or with a shrug. A mesh top under the top will give more warmth. You can also add sleeves to the outfit to give it a more interesting feel!
Spaghetti strap styles are often seen as day-to-day looks. A basic top is easy to pop on with a pair of jeans or a jersey skirt. It’s easy to forget that a spaghetti strap top can work for parties, too. Just pick a high-quality material, and pay attention to embellishments and finishing.
I paired a basic spaghetti strap top with our Lace Skirt to create a look fit for casual parties with the family. This kind of outfits are perfect for small birthdays and dinners.
I tied the belt higher this time to hide the lace on the top. I think two kinds of lace can clash pretty badly, and I wanted to avoid that. The belt gives the skirt a high waist, and changes the silhouette toward an empire-style. I tied the look together with red pumps, and skipped wearing jewelry to keep the outfit simple.
Funky and Cute
One top is cute, so wearing two is even cuter. I layered two tops for this look. I wore a top with a blue lace over a solid black one to make the detail pop even more. I wanted to create a cute, fun look for partying. I paired the tops with our PuffBall Skirt and an elastic belt. A bit of dark silver jewelry and high heels top up the look.
And of course what makes an outfit cute is the attitude you wear it with.
And Then There’s How I Wear It
Spaghetti strap styles are various and versatile. They range from casual to festive to funky, and suit almost any taste.
I wear spaghetti strap tops quite often, and wanted to show you how I like to make them a part of my unique look. This is an outfit I would gladly wear to any club! I wore a black mesh top with black velvet-print polkadots, a spaghetti strap top, my PuffBall Skirt, a Reversible Waist Corset, and loads of necklaces and bangles.
I hope you’ve enjoyed our super-long outfit post with spaghetti strap styles!
Until next time.
