How to Style a Sleeveless Top

Hi friends! Hope your day is off to a great start. As summer winds down and we move towards transitional dressing, you may be wondering how to transfer from warm to cool weather (and vice versa come Spring). Well, it’s quite easy to do, especially with a sleeveless top. Today’s blog focuses on the versatility of a sleeveless top and how to style it through various occasions and seasons.

In all of my outfits below, I’m wearing the Mixed Media Button Down Top from Loft and pairing it with pieces I already own. I love the saturated green color, it’s very soft and flowy and can be worn so many different ways. Plus this particular top suits both casual and dressier looks. Added bonus – it’s currently on sale AND use the code NEWNOW and receive an extra 40% off!

With Shorts

On a warm summer day, a sleeveless top is the perfect option. Unbutton a few of the bottom buttons, give it a tie-knot, pair with shorts (love these patterned ones that have been hiding in my closet), add sandals and you’re done. The material in this Mixed Media Button Down is perfect for tying. It’s made of a mix of rayon/poly, which is what gives it its fluidity.

On cooler September nights, layer on a denim jacket, tuck your Button Down Top into a great pair of walking shorts, add an animal print belt for a bit of texture and pattern and sandals.

With Jeans

To achieve a smart casual look, perfect for the office (if permitted at your workplace), try this sleeveless Button Down Top tucked into dark wash jeans. Having the pointed collar detail helps give a professional yet stylishly minimal look.

Denim will forever be a staple in your wardrobe, will never go out of style and goes with a multitude of items. Adding a sleeveless denim vest in combination with your sleeveless Button Down Top and crisp white cropped jeans will keep you looking casually-chic. Perfect for a warm Spring day!

As with transitional weather, the mornings may be cool but slowly warms up with each passing hour. Using a long sleeve button down as a topper over your sleeveless Top is another great casual look. As the day heats up, simply wrap it around your waist.

When winter arrives, this sleeveless Mixed Media Button Down Top will be the perfect layer for under your favorite neutral sweater. Allow the collar to peak out for some visual interest. Pair with your favorite denim and some playful animal print flats to finish off the look.

With Leggings

When life calls for a day of running errands, this Mixed Media Button Down Top is the perfect partner to your leggings. This keeps the look simple and clean, yet stylish.

Throughout the year, sometimes we need a soft layering piece to ward off the chill in the air. Whether you opted for a more tailored cardi or a casual one, your sleeveless Button Down Top will compliment your knits!

With Skirts:

To achieve a professional look, tuck your sleeveless Mixed Media Button Down Top into a skirt and add a blazer and kitten heels.

A sleeveless top can make any outfit look stylish. It’s extremely easy to pull off, no matter the season. I hope these outfit ideas will inspire you the next time you’re contemplating how to style your sleeveless top. Thanks for stopping by! xo ~ Michelle
