I’m feeling the squeeze, you guys. The squeeze of “I only included three tops in my 10×10 challenge.”
(I’m curious, how many tops did you include?)
So y’know what I did?
Styled this dress as a shirt.
Yes, I did. And, you know what?
I love it.
Like discovered my new favorite outfit, love it.
Especially mixed with these slouchy jeans. Typically, I would have reached for my high rise skinnies, but since they aren’t in this 10×10 remix, I couldn’t. Good thing, because I discovered a new proportion I love! (More on that in just a second.)
This outfit definitely gets an A. It’s totally my style. In fact, it may be leading the charge as far as my style is concerned. It feels like it’s ahead of where my style currently is hanging out — in a good way. It’s where I want to be.
Isn’t that kind of funny? It’s made up of basic pieces I’ve had for a while, but for some reason, in this new combination, this outfit feels groundbreaking for me. Maybe it’s because I don’t have a top that’s this shape — so this is the first time I’m seeing a top like this with my beloved jeans.
Tuck (or tie) a dress and wear it as a top: Here, I did a little front tuck, but it would also work beautifully tied in a knot at the hip or waist (or even thigh, if your dress is super loose).
Pinch (and pin) your jeans: I’ve covered this a few times already in this remix series, so I’ll just point you towards this quick jeans-rolling tip right here. (Scroll down to the very last photo in that post and you’ll find the tip right above it.)
Slouchy on top, slouchy on bottom: Remember my proportions for fall? This outfit could fall into the “fitted on bottom, volume on top” category. But, because the boyfriend jeans are a little looser, it feels more like a “slouchy on top, slouchy on bottom” proportion. And … well … I think I love that new proportion more than I want to admit. Even though “slouchy on top, slouchy on bottom” sounds like blobville, hopefully this outfit is evidence that it can be flattering with the right pieces.
So tell me, how many tops did you include in your remix challenge? Have you had any moments of “I didn’t include enough of …”?
We just have one more outfit! Thank goodness because I am fresh out of outfit ideas. :)
