Remixing old favourites with the new

This month has been filled with challenging myself to get creative with pieces that I purchased towards the end of last year and learning how to remix them. One piece that I really wanted to remix was the twist front crop top from my holiday party outfit. I wanted to style it in such a way that worked with my everyday life instead of the initial intention of using it for a party outfit.

outfit details:
cropped moto jacket: MISSGUIDED (similar)
twist front crop top: Topshop (similar in blush)
grid print midi skirt: c/o eShakti (exact)
leather booties: All Saints (similar)
vintage Coach legacy purse: thrifted (exact in brown)
geometric necklace: Maslo Jewelry (exact)

The crop top and high wasited skirt combo never seems to fail! This grid print midi skirt has the perfectly sized pleats that make it so easy and flattering to wear. Bonus points for having pockets! Although eShakti is known for their size and design customizations, I chose to go with a standard size 4 for this skirt. While I have submitted custom measurements for personally purchased eShakti pieces in the past (like this cheetah print dress from 2012), I kept to the standard measurements for this skirt and so glad that I did!

With the two newer pieces – crop top and skirt – that were introduced to my closet towards the end of 2016, I wanted to balance this outfit out with my longtime favourite closet pieces: cropped moto jacket and thrifted vintage Coach purse.

Even though we’re still in the first month of 2017, I think I’m ready to say that this will be one of my favourite outfits of the year. It feels the most “me”, and I love it!

  • Gosh I LOVE this together! That top was my favorite when I saw it this holiday season, and I’m loving how you so seamlessly integrated it into outfits for now, too. And maybe we’ll see some version during warmer weather with some fun high-waisted pants?!?! :)

  • YEEEESSS! I love everything about this outfit. It’s chic and can work way past the holiday season.

  • Oh, I LOVE this look.

  • Whoa, this is gorgeous.
