If you’re looking for quick style inspo, this post (and new series) is for you! While I love a detailed explanation of how to style a specific piece in closet, sometimes we just need the short answer. Am I right? This week I started a new series across social media – coining it #tsswithtss (Thirty Second Style with The Sarah Stories) While I still plan to elaborate and spotlight Spring style here on the blog, I thought condensed style sessions would equally serve helpful. Each thirty second clip spotlights a specific style or item in closet. I share associated styling tips and ways to wear it! Follow along and feel free to request via dm future style topics! This week I chose to spotlight loose jeans, wide leg trousers, puff sleeved tops, and an athletic dress.
Choosing an oversized or long top leaves you lacking shape. So you want to balance your proportions. To create balance, you can select a tighter fitting tank, or tuck in a tailored top. Go casual with sneakers or dress them up with heeled sandals. Front tucking a shorter sweater also helps to define the waist.
This Mason pant is Reformation. If you remember, a looser bottom calls for balance up top. You can opt for a chic bodysuit or shorter blouse and keep shape. Complete your look with stylish pumps or heeled sandals. But trousers these days aren’t just for the office. Dress them down with a denim jacket and sneakers, or meet in the middle by keeping it corporate up top in a blazer.
puffed sleeve tops
If you don’t know by now, I am a sucker for puff sleeved tops. To create balance and shape I tucked this boxy top into my bottoms. You’ve already a little shape with this babydoll style, so you want to create balance elsewhere. Opt for straight leg cropped jeans and show a little skin in sandals. These types of tops hold a lot of volume in the arms, so remember to balance the fullness with fit.
I am sure you’ve seen this athletic dress in your scroll lately. It has adjustable straps, hidden shorts, and is beyond comfortable. Let’s explore a few ways to wear it! You can casually layer with your favorite graphic tee and birkenstocks. opt for a button up and your favorite sneakers. Or get creative in heels and blazer for happy hour or date night. Or opt for a cardigan and slide sandals. Today, I’ll keep casual as intended in a classic denim jacket.
