I’m obsessed with this top and apparently you guys are too after I posted the pic in my blog about the amazing strapless bra that makes it possible for me to expand my wardrobe and wear all these gorgeous off the shoulder and cold shoulder tops!
I’ve worn this particular top over and over and over for date nights with my handsome hubs, GNO’s, networking events and of course, my Facebook Lives! I purchased it earlier this spring at Nordstrom & unfortunately this exact one is sold out & trust me I scoured the entire internet looking for it but don’t fret! There’s an updated version from the same brand 1.State that is nearly identical except for a slightly longer sleeve which is now banded & best of all, it now comes in 11 colors. I personally recommend the prints (my favs by far!) or darker solids because I found the lighter ones a bit too sheer for me. As a reference, i’m wearing a size Medium which is my usual size for this brand and in dresses/blouses i’m a size 8 most of the time.

You can easily style this top with your favorite summer white cropped jeans, a distressed skinny jean or even dressier shorts especially if you love your gams and want to show them off for the summer!
**Pro Stylist Tip! When you have a looser/blousier top like this, you don’t want to pair it with something too loose & flowy like a wide leg linen pant for example on the bottom. That way you create balance.
I love that this top gives you a few different options on how you can wear it. You can wear it untucked so it’s airy and flows. If you want to emphasize your waist, you can do my favorite stylist tip which is the “center tuck” (shown in the picture above on the right) and a trick I do with many of my blouses to accentuate my waist. You can also tuck your top in slightly wider from hip bone to hip bone in the front only (like in my picture above) and leave the back part out. Just play with “the tuck” and see what looks the best for your individual beautiful body as well as the type of bottoms/jeans you’re wearing with the top!
