In this new series, we are exploring how versatile one item of clothing can be, it is a reminder that we don’t necessarily need to have many clothes in our wardrobes, but instead, we can play and experiment with textures, accessories, stepping out of comfort zones and honouring our bodies and at the same time looking after the planet by not overbuying. This top has been made with FS OASIS Mid weight fabric, if you have questions on how to make it, please leave comments below. The top is perfect for summer and also great for fall layering. The bright earthy Oasis color works all year round.
Here are 5 ways to keep bringing this step to the next level.
Chic work outfit
Serving some fun in the office with this beautiful, draped blouse over leather trousers. To give it a further clean look I added leather ankle boots. For a more balanced and easy going feel, I did not wear too many accessories. It is a strong look but not too overwhelming, just the right balance. This outfit will flatter almost any figure.
Special event ready
Here I’ve paired the top with a floral maxi skirt, it’s perfect for a special occasion. The options to accessorize this look are unlimited. I chose to draw interest to my neckline and the beautiful sleeve by adding a collar necklace, bangles, and statement earrings. Again, this silhouette will work with all figures.
Wearing the top with jeans gives this outfit a stretch, which is what I love about this look. I chose straight leg jeans for a fun and carefree flare. The straight leg also gives a good balance to the one shoulder sleeve. This style cut works very well for tall/medium height frames. For petit frames I recommend a Capri length or ankle length fitted jean or pant.
I paired the linen top with these linen bell bottoms adds fun but still looks classy. A tied scarf around my waist adds interest and balance between the top and trousers. The feel I get here is business casual.
Cruising the city
I’m just out having fun and making a statement while doing so. These leather shorts paired with the top are so carefree and easy to move around with. Here I could be headed to a cafe, brunch, get together, the fun settings are limitless. Who doesn’t love a good pair of shorts in the summer. I tucked the top in here and belted it which gives it an intentional fitted look but you could as easily leave it out and draped over the shorts for softness.
