Today we’re playing the styling challenge, 1 piece, 3 ways! This is where we take one piece of clothing and find 3 different ways to style it up. Sometimes a fresh take on clothes you already own can be just as fun as getting something new. Let’s begin, shall we?
The Piece: I’ve been playing along with the Sew Happy Color challenge on Instagram and this week is the color blue, so I went looking for blue and came up with this Nikko Top by True Bias .
I made this early last year in a couple of different colors and one of the dress versions. I reach for these all the time. This bamboo rib knit is so soft and light, it makes for a great layering piece. I do find that I’ve mostly been wearing it with jeans, so I decided to change it up and bit and see what I could come up with!
Outfit #1: I love the idea of layering a turtleneck under a spring dress, but have to admit it’s not something I do very often. I went looking for dresses and picked my Calvin Wrap Dress by True Bias because I’ve been wanting to try layering a t-shirt under it and had the idea in my head.
I feel like this is a fun nod to the 90s trend going around and I paired it with my most combat style boots. I like the blue with the dark gray and think this is a fun way to extend the life of a warmer weather dress.
Outfit #2: I love to wear this top with my high waisted jeans, such a 70s vibe, so I decided to keep that silhouette but play around with some color. I paired it with my new Persephone Pants and I love this color combination. I would not normally think of putting these two colors together, but after this month’s color challenge and seeing all the ways people are mixing and matching colors, I decided to go for it. I love this one so much.
Outfit #3: For my final look I went back to my jeans and t-shirt. This time these jeans are straight cut Gap classic style blue jeans with my white sneakers. To add a little something extra, I threw on this blazer I thrifted that has a bit of an 80s shoulder. Feel like I could run for vice president in this outfit! Sam’s my campaign manager!
