What to wear: Sheer blouses

A Good friend once asked me..

“Hey Rita, I really want to buy a sheer blouse but I have no idea how to style it? How would you where it?” Well of course my mind went WILD with ideas because 1: I LOVE sheer blouses and 2: There is really an infinite way to wear them. So i put on my thinking cap and came up with some ideas for her on how to wear them. So here is what I came up with.

A BASIC WHITE SHEER TOP 

For this look you can really do anything your little heart desires. One I chose to go with a cute colored lace bandeau and flow over jean shorts. The other I thought would be cute over a white bandeau tucked into a cute skirt like this tangerine one (which is the color of the season).

Sheer Shirt Styled

POLKADOTS AND POP OF COLOR

This outfit is so simple and yet so fun and definitely something I’ve worn before! I would describe this as all black everything with a pop of color. Black bandeau under the blouse, your cutest black skinny jeans, and an awesome cocktail ring! Take your favorite colored heels and you have an effortless look.

PETER PAN AND PEPLUM 

This outfit is by far my favorite! This time under the sheer shirt i decided to go with a nude bra because i really want the shirt to stand out on it’s own without any background interference. It’s a classic look because of the high waisted skirt and button down but also trendy with the collar and peplum accents.

PS. If you are nervous or not ready to bare all yet any of the bandeaus can be exchanged with a cute cami!! Which outfit was your favorite? Would you wear any of these? How do you style your sheer shirt? I would love to know! Leave your thoughts in the comments below! Happy Shopping 🙂 -Rita

Summer Wedding: What Rita Wore

Such a beautiful day for a wedding..

Coral bubble dress (forever 21)

Necklace (forever 21)

Nude Wedges (Charlotte Russe)

Gold Clutch (MyGlam)

I have a very thin frame so I like to add width to the bottom half on my silhouette by wearing a dress with a little more volume. Also to keep it wedding-appropriate I thought having a dress that wasn’t so form-fitting was a better option for me. Since it was an outdoor ceremony I decided to wear nude wedges so I wouldn’t sink into the grass and I would be comfortable for a night full of dancing! I went with gold accessories and a gold bag (which actually was a makeup bag but I decided to sport it as a clutch). Last thing I painted my nails mint green with a leopard print (sally hansen) ring finger. I felt soft and feminine, exactly the look I was going for!

3 ways to wear: high waist mid-length skirt

1, 2, 3, out the door! 

This is a super simple day outfit. Instead of the same ol’ “t-shirt and jeans” try swapping your jeans for a cute midi skirt and people will think you took a lot more time than you actually did to get ready. One item can really go a long way!

Family Picnic anyone? 

This outfit is so perfect for a picnic or BBQ with your family! The skirt makes the outfit feminine but with the contrast of the denim shirt it’s not over the top for a chill afternoon. Put on some floral wedges and some cute dangle earrings and start snapping some family pictures!

Casual Day

 

DATE NIGHT 

I absolutely love this outfit! It’s so chic and spicey your husband/boyfriend will LOVE to see you in and spend the whole night showing you off to everyone else 😉

Night out

Coral and Denim Shorts Day to Night.

This first look is something sweet and simple. It’s a very pulled together look fitting for a perfect day in the park or even just to go to lunch with a couple of girlfriends. I feel like the contrast of the coral shirt and the mint green bag go together great!

This second look is something just a little bit more dressed up with the black denim shorts. I LOVE peter pan necklines right now and since this one is high and embellished there is no need to clutter your neck with a necklace. I coupled these strappy wedges with it because I felt a stiletto would be a little too much. Add a couple cute bangles and a chic pair of stud earrings and your ready to take on the town!
