My Style: Belly Baring Tie-Front Tops

Daisy Duke may be known for the tie-front top, but the shirt actually has a long history. As seen on everyone from ‘50s screen sirens (Marilyn Monroe) to ‘90s supermodels (Claudia Schiffer, Guess ads), the top has become as iconic as the blue jean.

I have taken the Midriff and Tie-Front Top trend and combined them to get this sultry look!

Top: This pastel plaid blouse is by Hollister. There are many ways to tie a blouse but I decided to make it easy and just tied this shirt high in the front and let it hang lower in the back. I channeled this look  in  trendy summer hues to get a modern sexy preppy look!

BAD-2996-editPants: These crisp white stretch skinny jeans by Vanilla Star are perfect for warm summer nights. I love the fit and want a baby blue pastel pair next!

BAD-2977-edit

Have a Stylish day!

This Season’s Sandals

Whether it’s flats for the beach, a strappy stiletto for those hot summer nights, or the perfect wedge for your next poolside fete, sandals are an essential to your warm weather wardrobe, and preferably multiple styles! So which kind of sandals should you be looking out for at the moment?

sandals-Ann TaylorAnn Taylor: Roslyn Espadrille Wrapped Leather Platform Sandals ($158) Chunky heels can be just as hot as stilettos and are easier on your tootsies. This sultry leather sandal gets a summery update with espadrille heels.

Sandals-GapGap: Wooden Wedge Sandals ($70) Any kind will do but this wooden wedge sandal is a timeless pick! While Gap’s iteration would pair brilliantly with a printed sundress, I also love them with flared jeans for a chic ‘70s result.

sandals-LoefflerRandallLoeffler Randall: Starla Plank Sandals ($175) in White Vachetta Leather. Every girl needs a go-to flat, so why not a statement making one. The Star-embellished straps add a playful touch to these gladiator-esque sandals–I’ve got my eye on them for the Fourth of July.

sandals-RachelRoyRachel Roy: Luna Heels ($199) What fashionista’s shoe arsenal would be complete without a sultry pair of stilettos? Add a luxe touch to your after-hours attire, with these multi-colored snake heels that demand the spotlight.

Strut your Stuff!

XOXO
