3 Ways to Style a *Major* Statement Top

Read until the end to get $30 towards your first Rent the Runway purchase!

Hello wild child!

I saw this fairy-like gold pleated top on Rent the Runway and just had to have it. It was the top of my dreams, but when it came in I didn’t know what to do with it!

It was such a strong piece on its own, I didn’t want to do it injustice by pairing it with a blasé pant or skirt. I was in a state of shimmery gold intimidation!

So, I took a step back from my closet and thought. And thought, and thought a little more.  Finally, it came to me.

Here are some basic ways you can easily pair your statement top with items you already have in your closet!

All items are linked at the bottom of the post!

Look #1. Let’s Get


“Casual” 

Or, as casual as a giant sparkly gold top can get. This is the simplest look, and honestly the most versatile. Simply pair your statement top with a pair of skinny jeans and heels. I chose to go with a leopard print Mary-jane type shoe – so adding a hint of a statement shoe works as well. It’s all up to YOU.

Look #2. Elevated Casual

Throw on a a high-waisted neutral skirt and a pair of heels and call it a day. Honestly, this look would be so perfect for almost any occasion. I could wear this to work, on a date, or to get some cocktails! This is the perfect outfit for the sassy working girl.

Look #3. High Society B!tch

Okay, okay. Maybe that is taking it a little far. But, this would be a great look for a professional work setting, presentation, or semi-formal event. This was the one look I really wasn’t sure if was going to work, but the black dress was a perfect fit! The bottom ruffles on the dress balance out the top and just bring this typically drab look into a new era.
