Over the years I’ve stumbled upon a couple of qualities that I’ve found make for very remixable tops. I picked up this top recently and I totally love it because besides being very cute, it has TWO of those remixable qualities wrapped up in one! Here they are:
Same Silhouette as a T-Shirt but Not Cotton
These are shaped like a plain cotton tee and are just as easy to put on, but they look slightly dressier. That means with the same amount of effort you can have a more polished look. Also, they can be tucked into skirts, worn with jeans or shorts, and worn with slacks. You can basically work them into any setting, which points to versatility. Lastly, if they’re plain, not printed, they’re a blank slate for statement necklaces, pendants, and scarves galore. This top comes in a whopping 17 solid colors or prints, but mostly solids! (See them all HERE.)
Printed Top with a Neutral Background
Another characteristic of remixable tops that I’ve mentioned: a print with a neutral background. The neutral background helps it go with a lot of different colors, and the print adds visual interest to any outfit. With completely solid tops I usually feel like I have to add a necklace or scarf for interest, but with printed tops I feel less of a need for a necklace while still having the option to add one if I want to.
Tops with either of these qualities have been the most remixable in my closet, but this top has BOTH of those qualities!
So, let’s put it into action! Here are just 3 of many ways you could wear this top:
Also, I’m normally size S/M and wearing this in S.
Shop for the Look:
Top: Nordstrom (exact)
Jacket: Old Navy (similar, similar slightly darker)
Necklace: c/o That’s Mine Boutique
Shoes: c/o ModCloth (similar)
These kinds of tops are so versatile and are so easy to wear! Solid tops like these are typically my go-to pairings for all of my printed skirts too. This one comes in soooo many color choices, so if you’re in need of some remixable tops check them out HERE!
