But for this post I wanted to show how you could easily style a short sleeve top for cooler weather just by adding jeans and jacket. A top like this transitions so well into fall because of the dark color. And I prefer wearing a short sleeve or a sleeveless top under jackets because it is less bulky and therefore more comfortable.
My jacket is by Guess and is three years old. The last time I showed it to you was in THIS POST. It was one of my more popular pins too!
Most modern jackets are shorter than our tops, and it's perfectly o.k., if not fashionable, to let you top hang out from underneath the jacket in the back.
Because my top has brass embellishments on it, I kept the jewelry minimal at the neckline with this necklace from Stitch Fix (old) and I wore a pair of statement earrings from DSW (new, on clearance) instead.
I wore a bracelet I picked up on one of my vacations and carried my fringe white handbag also from Stitch Fix.
For shoes, I wore my brown open-toe booties from Payless again. Open-toe or cut-out booties are the perfect shoes for transitioning from summer to fall.
And here is the top without the jacket. It is a thinner rayon/polyester material, so I wear a camisole underneath as it's slightly see-thru. I love the embellishments on front, the tie closures, and the pin-tuck details.
The top is by Liz Claiborne and is available in three colors: white, navy blue, and olive green. They did not have the green at my store, or I would have bought that color!
The detail of the yoke is what really makes the top, but I also like the shape as well. I prefer tops that are a looser fit for my body type.
It seems everyone keeps debating whether to wear skinnies or flares lately, and I say "Why not both?". I think it's fun to change it up and wear different styles of pants. And frankly, some tops look better with skinnies and other tops look better with flares. I don't think we have to choose one style over another, and both styles are still trending. My flares I picked up last year at American Eagle.
Have a Great Day! Amy
