I was admiring some of the “How to Wear” pins on Pinterest and realized that few of them feature women who look like me and with my body size and shape.
So I decided to fill the void and create my own starting with this post on how to rock an orange off-the-shoulder peasant top.
I got mine from H&M which is now just $9.99 down from originally $24.99 or you can get a similar one by Rachel Zoe here or a more casual ASOS design here. and a youthful shorter cropped one also from H&M here or a plus size option here.
I styled it several ways and here are a few ways to pull it of.
Pair it with cropped denim distressed jeans or cuff a pair of jeans you already own. I’m wearing American Eagle but you can get a similar jeans here and for a lower price point here. I dressed it down with quilted black Sperry loafers (similar style) and here is a similar brand for less or (splurge on Tod’s) and carried a signature Dooney & Bourke leather and canvas monogram logo hobo bag (which you can purchase here for just $60!
For the sporty version, I wore the shirt with a pair of black Nike running pants, (similar style for less) and opted for white sole black high tops (go big with Balenciagas) with a floral mini backpack (similar by AD Sutton) and cropped distressed army green jacket (similar lower price by SHEIN)!
A simple overcoat completes the casual look during cooler temps, during weekenders or while out and about running errands when layers are essential. Get this exact Amanda Smith creamsicle colored trench from my Poshmark store for just $45. (or similar a little pricier or here by Express)
A grey cardigan by Forever 21 worn over the black Theory pants (get similar by H&M for lower price) with pointy toed patent leather pumps with metal buckle accents (similar) made this look acceptable for the office on casual Friday or any day of the week to be honest.
I can swap out the cardigan for my black Calvin Klein faux fur ribbed sweater (similar for less) and the pumps for black leather slouch boots (get similar for less or here) and a leather fanny pack and I’m ready to meet up with friends at a happy hour or to catch an outdoor wine festival or concert.
It’s a really great a versatile way to squeeze in color into a usually gray and blah wardrobe! It’s also perfect for Spring!
