I think we all have those tops that we know are easy to dress up with some black pants, a skirt, and some heels right? But how do we wear them on a more everyday basis? How can we pair them to not look like we are all dressed up with nowhere but Target to go to, just like this white ruffle top?
I recently snagged this white ruffle top at ASOS. I think we all know my obsession with ASOS by now right? I mean there one time fee of $19 for free 2 day shipping and returns for an entire year is what really gets me, but that is a story for another day. This top is something that I know I can easily dress up no problem, but when it came to dressing it down I wasn’t sure if it would work.
Here are my 3 tips to dress down any dressy shirt in your closet to wear more on an everyday basis because why just save them for special occasions?
1 – Pair with distressed denim. Distressed denim looks a lot less dressy than denim without any distressing. This will bring the tone of your look down easily and you will be comfortable so that’s also a plus!
2 – Next pair your look with flats. I picked my favorite loafers to wear with this, but any flats or cute sneakers (like these) will work perfectly!
3 – Don’t layer over it with a jacket. You could pull off a slouchy cardigan, but a jacket (leather, suede, etc.) will dress the look up super quick. Leave your jacket hanging up for a basic tee day or a day that you need to look just a touch dressier.
I hope this helps you to know how to dress down the pieces in your closet that you aren’t sure what to wear with like I was with this ruffle top. Don’t overthink things, you got this girl!
