This past summer I wore my blue, white and green striped shirt with a denim skirt, denim shorts, and even white jeans. It felt fresh and crisp but I didn’t want to put it away until next spring.
Skirt: Dress Barn
I decided to try a bit of pattern mixing and give this top some fall style so I paired it with a skirt in the same hues, tights and boots. It was then that I realized the lovely, draped neckline was a bit too low-cut for work. So I did what I’ve done before: I wore the top backwards.
Wearing it backwards gave me a top with a boat neck and a low back. I didn’t mind showing off the back, but a cardigan or jacket covered it nicely.
Skirt: Eric MacLeod
Tights: Roots Canada
Bracelet and earrings: Claire’s
I was more covered up for work and the top could stay in rotation in my fall wardrobe.
Do you have any tricks for being work-appropriate or extending summer items into fall?
