Dressing in a casual manner is what I do most of the time. However, I try to pick items that have design details to create visual interest. Just because I’m comfy doesn’t mean I don’t want to be stylish. So, here is how you can elevate your everyday look with casual tops.
Here is Part 1 of this post in case you missed it yesterday:
Casual Summer Tops The Elevate Your Everyday Look: Crochet & Lace
Crochet and lace trim are popular this year. I love the crochet trim across the top; it is so pretty. This top will get you a ton of compliments, and it will be comfy to wear all day long.
If you look closely, you will see my nude-colored bra. This is the bra I always wear, and I never have to worry about it showing through my tops.
I’m wearing a medium in this top, although a large would have fit me better. I love the top, so I think I’ll reorder it in large.
Elevate Your Everyday Look: Ruffles
Ruffles were never on my radar before. I steered away from them and thought they looked too girlie. However, lately, I’ve embraced some ruffles, and this top is an example of why.
These ruffle sleeves are so cute and feminine, and I don’t think they look like a little girl. They look flirty and cutesy, and I’m willing to be labeled that.
An easy way to elevate your everyday look is with accessories. The Kelly Statement Earrings and Michele Watch make the outfit look polished, put-together, and chic. The Michele watch is one that I watched to go on sale for years. I love the style and look of the watch, but the price tag is a little hard to swallow. I recently found this watch by Chico’s, and it looks very similar. You will get the same “look” at a more affordable price tag.
If you prefer to wear your tops loose, here is how it looks.
Colorful Tops For Summer
I love bright and colorful tops, so I was sure this one would stay in my closet. But, I feel the colors wash me out, and sadly, it is going back.
The top is available in different color combinations, so I may consider ordering one of the ones below. I think they would suit be better than this one. I’m unsure what made me choose this bright orange version since it isn’t a color I usually wear.
Here is the look from the back.
And here is how the top looks when not tucked.
Details Can Elevate Your Everyday Look
Unique details are the easiest way to elevate your look. Most of the tops have statement sleeves, but this top is unique because of the embroidered top.
This is a fun top that shows your personality. It has so many colors that you could wear it with almost everything. The tie pom poms are adorable, but you could snip them off if you thought they were too juvenile.
I’m wearing a medium, but it is too tight across my chest. If you’re between sizes, order the larger size.
Chic and Stylish Tops For Summer
The gauze look is in! I can’t say that I’m unhappy about this trend, especially since I don’t have to worry about wrinkles.
I immediately hung this top in my closet and ordered it in white. When I think of summer tops, this is what comes to mind. It is chic, and the ruffles are a perfect size.
I’m wearing a medium, but I ordered the white in a large. It is just the tiniest bit tight, so I sized up for the white version.
I hope you enjoyed my posts on summer tops. There is a lot to check out, and I hope you found something that struck your fancy.
