Since learning about and partaking in multiple 10×10 Challenges, I’ve become much more aware about the pieces I add into my wardrobe. I look for pieces which can be effortlessly mixed into my current wardrobe and ones which are highly versatile in how they can be worn. I’ve also noticed a shift in searching for pieces with great patterns that can be added to the more neutral pieces I already own. So when Madewell came out with this silk tee in the most gorgeous floral print, I knew it would be a repeat-offender this fall.
My favorite way to wear a piece often coincides with the simplest way to style a piece. So here I’ve done just that with this amazing silk top (similar here). I styled it here classically with a pair of my favorite black jeans, cuffed and with ankle booties. Simple, yes. But also great looking! It’s a win-win in my opinion. If there’s no need to put lots of effort into over-styling something, I think it’s best to just let the piece style itself. Wouldn’t you agree?
Also…any rules you’ve heard about always matching your brown tones within a look , throw them out! I love pairing all different hues of browns and beiges and tans into my wardrobe in fall. In fact, I think it gives the look much more definition and interest. So this rich cognac purse was an easy choice for this outfit.
This top also has the prettiest button-back detail. And it comes in a silky material, which is a nice change-up from my normal go-to cotton tees (like here). Don’t get me wrong…I love my basic vneck tees from Madewell. But sometimes it’s nice to have another option to mix things up! Plus, silky tops tend to be easier to dress up, with a skirt for instance. And I’m all about having pieces I can both dress up and dress down. In the end, it makes for a much more well-rounded and well-accessed wardrobe.
And if it gets a little chilly outside, there’s nothing quite like an oversized scarf to keep your neck and shoulders warm!
What about you? Do you have a great floral top for fall?
