A review & styling tips by Brooke Mathis.
Let's all take a moment to appreciate this long-sleeve-studded top. The silver studs on this top are sure to take your outfit up a notch or two. It's made of a very stretchy and super soft material that makes it very comfortable to wear all day and into the night.
So to dress this top up, I picked out a slip dress that I had in my closet. Mine was red, but any color would work. Since this time of year is so cold, adding this top underneath was a no-brainer. The satin fabric and the studs on this top were a match made in heaven.
I paired it with the Corkys To Be Honest Chelsea Boot. I loved this boot because the silver color of this boot matched the studs but also added to the edgy look I was going for. This would be perfect for a wedding reception or a work party. If looking for jewelry, I would keep it minimal and choose a simple pair of silver studs. The top draws enough attention to itself, so there isn't a major need for earrings or necklaces. As always, though, you wear whatever you want to wear!
For the second look, I switched out the slip dress and put on a pair of olive green cotton overalls. I typically just wear a solid basic tee underneath these, but this studded top was so fun with them. I recommend this look and the next one for a day out and about with friends or a casual date night.
Lastly, I switched it up and put on some distressed straight-leg jeans. This top was just long enough to tuck into my high-waisted jeans. It is a little on the cropped side for length, so if you're not into that look, then I suggest pairing it with your favorite high-waisted bottoms. I still kept the silver boots on, mostly because I just like them that much. To make this outfit even more casual, I would add the Adella Tooled Leather & Fringe Crossbody Bag.
So if you're looking for a fun top to layer under those transitional pieces, add this top to your closet.
