You Need This Versatile (Under $100!) Top

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I love finding pieces that are unique and versatile, like this sheer ruffle top.  Obviously it will be easier to wear once all that snow melts (we had ANOTHER snow day this past week), but the real challenge is finding a way to wear it now.  Enter Shana’s “old faithful,” the black turtleneck.  It’s the perfect layer to wear underneath this pretty floral top until the weather warms up a bit.  Add boots and a long coat and it’s an easy way to add some fun to an otherwise pretty basic outfit.

Black Turtleneck (thin for layering and extra long length)

Hudson Nico Jeans (run just a tad big, wearing 27, usually 28)

Over-the-Knee Boots (similar, but with lower block heel for comfort and currently 35% off)

Waterfall Coat (Lightweight and perfect for Spring – also in black, both currently 40% off!)

Rose Gold Hoops

Later (or Now, for the Lucky Ones – looking at you, Cam)

I like the shape of this top with flares – I thought they were a nice way to set off the extra fabric in the middle and I was digging the boho vibe of this outfit.  I could easily add the coat I wore above for a bit more warmth.

Way Later 

I actually just liked the way this top looked over shorts.  Super easy and I like the extra length in the back.

  1. I’ve been wondering about the Absolution jeans! What do you think about sizing and do the bag out or hold their shape? Thanks! Looks awesome on you.

  2. I never really caught onto this trend the first time around, but did this today and will be trying it again tomorrow, but switching the colorway. Today I wore it with a chambray button down slip dress and black skinnies. Tomorrow I’m going to try it with a black silk slip dress and blue skinnies. I’ll let you know which one I like better. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love how you styled these pieces! Really versatile! I like these posts, helps me think outside the box. Thanks for the inspiration!
