This week, we’re looking at four different ways to style this silk top by Elizabeth Suzann — and it’s time for look three!
ES pieces look amazing paired together and that’s how lots of people wear them — think flowy tops paired with silky wide leg pants, like this. But … that style that doesn’t feel entirely me. So I’ve been having fun coming up with different ways to style it.
This third look is all about playing with contrasting styles — pairing a refined silk top with something ultra casual and a little boho, like cutoff jean shorts and lace up sandals.
It’s funny, I go through phases with shorts. In early spring, I prefer longer shorts because I haven’t seen my legs in a while and shorty shorts are like a shock to the system. So right now, I’m mildly uncomfortable in these shorts, even though they’ve been with me since my very first capsule.
But usually by the end of the summer, I’m reaching for them regularly. At that point, I’m used to wearing shorts every day because the heat is real. So by that time, I don’t even really think about it — I just feel comfortable in ’em.
Last summer I was allllll about these shorts — I wore them three or four times a week. I’m curious if that’s how it’s going to go down this summer or if I’ve turned a new page — a longer shorts page. At the moment, I’m thinking I may have turned a new page because like I said, mildly uncomfortable. :) We’ll see.
Either way, I think it’s interesting to pair this refined top with something ultra casual, like cutoff jean shorts.
So tell me, what do you think of contrasting styles? What styles do you find yourself contrasting in your own outfits? Boho with tailored? Masculine with feminine? Share away in the comments section!
And I’ll see you tomorrow for part 4!
