When we find a piece that (a) can be worn all year round and (b) instantly elevates an outfit from simple to stand-out, we typically jump up and down with happiness, which is why we are so excited about today’s Ways To Wear story. If you are anything like us, you agree that a printed top meets both the criteria outlined above, making it an essential in your closet and definitely worthy of being the subject of today’s story. So, without further ado, click inside to discover three different ways to wear your favorite printed top—thanks to Miranda Kerr, Alexa Chung, and Zoe Saldana! Read on!
When you are an on-the-go mom like Miranda, an outfit that is practical but still has panache is essential. By pairing a printed blouse with skinny jeans and ballet flats and then adding a simple satchel across the shoulder, Miranda has created an outfit that is comfortable enough to wear all day but still chic enough for a casual business lunch. To work this look, grab pieces like Something Else’s Metamorphosis Blouse ($143), Paige Denim’s Skyline Skinny Jeans ($158), and London Rebel’s Leather Ballet Pumps ($37).
Alexa has opted for a dressed-up-yet-dressed-down look, which is great for a fashion industry function or a night out with the girls. Her outfit—a printed blouse, high-waist shorts, and pointed flats—has a fun, subtly sexy vibe. To give this look a try, grab a blouse like Bar III’s Scoop-Neck Polka-Dot Blouse ($59) or Guess by Marciano’s Retro Dot Blouse ($138) and pair it with Topshop’s Moto High-Waisted Hotpants ($64). Then, simply add cute flats like Steve Madden’s Vegasss Flats ($80) and you’re all set.
Although Zoe’s outfit is similar to Miranda’s, we feel it is a little more playful, making it perfect for the girl who wants to follow up a day of shopping by having dinner with the girls. Her sleeveless Splendid blouse and metallic ballet flats exude a fun vibe, while her high-waist jeans show that she is fashion conscious. Ready to try? Simply grab Forever 21’s Sleeveless Polka-Dot Shirt ($18) and pair it with Topshop’s Moto Jamie Jeans ($80) and J Crew’s Metallic Leather Ballet Flats in Brocade Gold ($125).
