Top: SoSolo // Dress (seen as skirt): H&M // Necklace: New Look
From the first time I saw this top on the SoSolo website, I loved it. I added it to my basket over and over again, before my boyfriend took the hint and bought me it for my birthday!
I love that it's quirky, and a little bit different, but I do find it really difficult to style. I find the top quite masculine looking, partly because of the leather sleeves, and party because of the dark colour, and although I love it, I didn't want to end up looking too manly (lol).
My initial thought was to team the top with a skirt, which is how I came to wearing it on top of this safety pin print dress. I then added the feather necklace for a pop of colour in the outfit. I kind of like it, although I don't think this shows the top to it's full potential... I loved it on the website, and I know it can look better than this.
Jeans : New Look // Necklace: New Look
I then decided to try styling it simply, with some bright coloured jeans. This kind of shows that my first thoughts about needing to team the top up with something girly were wrong, as I think this looks better then the previous outfit. I chose this pretty, girly necklace to break away from the outfit becoming too androgynous.
I'd be very interested to hear if anyone else has this top, and I'd love to see how you style it!
If you've never shopped on Sosolo before, I really recommend it! The clothes are all really on trend, but very unique... I love their stuff! And if you want to buy this top, you're in luck... it's reduced!Twitter // Bloglovin'
