StyleFile: How To Style Long Tops
Popping up in all the collections for summer are long tops with step, waterfall or uneven hemlines with layers and luscious colours leaving you ready for summer!
Ideal for those trans-seasonal days, long tops are versatile and stylish and can be paired with pants for a corporate office style or a midi skirt for post-work drinks.
These long tops are a staple in any fashionable girl’s wardrobe and though the style may be simple, a few accessories and unique styling can transform this classic style into something modern, flattering and fun.
Here are some great tips for styling long tops:
Wear with pants
Long layered tops look timeless with tailored pants and heels for the office. Go bold and daring and embrace a 1970’s style with culottes or palazzo pants, just make sure the top you choose is fitted and structured to avoid drowning in the style!
Add a midi skirt
Ideal for nights out or dinner dates, a body-con midi skirt looks stunning with a long top. Opt for a bright modern print or stick to classic monochrome with a fitted black or white style.
Rock a cropped jacket
If you’re worried about getting lost in your long top – a cropped jacket adds instant structure and creates a flattering silhouette. If you’re going to work, a cropped blazer is stylish, or you could choose a denim or leather jacket for the weekend or an evening event.
Play with fabrics
One of our favourite things about long tops is that they don’t have just to come in classic jersey or stretch fabrics. Gorgeous chiffons and knit blends add a refreshing take, with bold prints, contrast panelling and even touches of metallic transforming this look.
Layer on jewels
Sometimes a classic style like the long top needs a little something extra to lift the look. Longline layered jewels work well as do fitted chocker style necklaces for added glam. Just keep the rest of your accessories neutral if you choose to layer on the jewellery.
