Hey guys and welcome to the first edition of my Summer Stylin’ series! Today I’m going to show you a few differet ways to wear the new “ YOUR WAY” Convertible Pom Pom Cover Up.
This piece was somewhat of a happy mistake. I was shooting for a simple crew neck circle type caftan. I did not draft a pattern first. I just folded the fabric , marked and cut. Fast and dirty! In doing so, I cut the neck hole WAY too big. When I tried it on first, I thought it looked a bit….blobish. After playing around with it, I decided to add a tie to the top, and voila! A cover up reinvented. Check out the 6 ways I wore it below!
Look #1 ( Left) : “Original” Halter Dress Style. You could pair this with a simple strapless dress for a cute summer look beyond the beach!
Look #2 ( Center) : High Waist Skirt. Start with the original style and lower the neckline. Depending on your height, you can play around with how far you drop the center ( without the back dipping below your bum).
Look #3 ( Right) One Shoulder Kimono Sleeve. This is one of my favorite ways to wear. Tie your strap strings into a bow and drape the piece over one shoulder and under the other arm. To get this dramatic high/low hemline, make sure your bow is on your high shoulder.
Look #4 ( Left) Off Shoulder. Simple. Make sure your bow is directly in the center front, or center back, so that your hands are still visible and usable.
Look #5 ( Center) Deep V. Drape Over your head, and pull the strap strings down in front to make a deep V. Tie the strings around your waist. TO leave your arms free and bum covered, be sure not to tie around the back layer of fabric.
Look #6 (Right) One Shoulder Grecian. Cute and a little retro. Start with the original design, but pull the strings over one shoulder. Bring the strings around and tie under your bust.
I bet there are a TON of other ways to wear this coverup and I will play around with it more for sure. IN the meanwhile, you can order your own version here.
See you next time!
