Have you been following my weeklong series called 2 Ways/7 Days where each day I style one wardrobe staple two different ways? So far I’ve styled a gorgeous blue draped blouse, a black knit dress, a faux fur vest and today I’m excited to bring you this snowy white winter top.
When I saw this ballet-inspired wrap sweater I knew I’d found a winner. If you’ve never owned a wrap sweater you have to try one. Wrap sweaters work for women in all shapes and sizes and they are incredibly flattering, accentuating the bustline, nipping you in at the waist and skimming over the hips.
This ballet wrap sweater checks all the boxes: it’s ultra-flattering, comes in several colors and at a reasonable price-point, and will go with about a gazillion things in your closet (okay, maybe not a gazillion but lots and lots!) Here are a couple of the possible options.
Wrap Top – Dressy Look
This first, dressed up look is 100% class and would be stunning for any holiday party or event. While this top would be lovely with your trusty black slacks, I’ve paired this cream sweater with tone-on-tone white pants (yes, you can wear white after Labor Day) to create one long column of color that makes you look tall and lean.
Nude shoes keep the column of color going all the way down to the tip of your toes. I love the Old Hollywood glamour of these wide-legged pants and I really, really love that they’re something you’ll be able to wear this spring and summer too. Pile on the gold – earrings, necklace, clutch – to glitz this outfit up for a holiday event.
Wrap Top – Casual Look
With a style this classic and a color this neutral, you just know this top will go with practically anything. I love the way the top’s soft, feminine vibe goes with a more rugged pair of skinny jeans, particularly when you throw these earthy riding boots into the mix. Swapping out jeans for leggings, or booties for these riding boots would work beautifully as well.
Do you own a wrap top? What do you wear it with?
