Hi everyone! Welcome back. Last week I had said that I would talk more about the Wayf top that was on my birthday list, see that post here. So that's what I am going to do! I'd like to show you some different ways to style it, and yes, I will talk about the logistics of wearing it. Just so we are all on the same page, you can find this top at Nordstrom, here. It is a fierce top, the plunge in the neckline isn't for everyone...however, it is also extremely versatile and can be dressed up or down. It has enough interest on its own that it really doesn't require much fuss. Well, actually, it does require a little bit of extra attention.
While this top is chic and easy, it requires special considerations when it comes to undergarments. It is almost impossible to wear a bra with this top without it showing. So what did I do? I would recommend stick on cups, or petals. Target has some, find them here. Good, now that we got the logistics out of the way, let's take a look at styling ideas.
As you know, I bought this top in black and white...and then I bought it in grey too. Because of course I did. Sizing wise, it fits true to size, just pay attention to the size chart. Depending on brand I am either a xs or a small. In this top, according to their size chart, I am a solid small. The black one is super easy for me, because I wear black all the time.
It is great on its own, or under a blazer or cardigan. I'd choose a blazer or jacket that has a bit of structure to it and fitted, since the top has a little bit of flow to it. These tops also work really well tucked into skirts; add a faux leather pencil skirt or a mini skirt and you are date night ready!
The white one is also versatile, and it does feel a little more casual to me. I especially love it under a jean jacket. Something about the contrast in textures interests me.
It's also lighter feeling than the black one, so it's perfect with lighter colored skirts! Try it with jean shorts and a kimono. If you do try a layer over it that has more drape to it, try half tucking (tuck the top just a bit in the front), like I did with the jean shorts.
Probably my favorite way to wear this white one, is with puffier skirts, like this floral one. The volume and playfullness of the skirt balances the fierceness of the top.
Also, notice my pattern mixing...I am giving a nod to my post about pattern mixing with florals! Find that one, here. Always love a good mix of patterns, LOL. Now if only the weather would cooperate so I can wear this top with all the things, that would be great. You probably can't tell, but when we took these pictures, it was 32 degrees outside. What I won't do for fashion... It was a make it work moment. And I did just that.
So what do you think, are you ready to give the Wayf top a try? If you do, send me your outfit ideas for it. I'd love to be inspired!
