It’s almost embarrassing how excited I get when I discover a new way to style pieces I’ve had in my closet for a while. While this Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent romper gets plenty of time off the hanger, this BCBG top hardly ever gets to venture out into the world.
I’m not sure why, it’s a cute piece, but it just never seems to be quite right. With blue jeans it feels too basic, with black it feels clashy. It’s just one of those things where you put it on with every intention of wearing it, but 10 pant-changes later you just end up scrapping it before you leave the house.
But, alas, I have found its match! Here’s how it happened: I was staring at my closet, trying to find a light coverup to wear over this sleeveless romper when suddenly this blue hue caught my eye. I noticed how complementary the colors are, so I slipped it on and voila! My one-piece romper became a new two-piece look, and my neglected top got some well-deserved wear time. All it took was a little creative styling.
