Let’s talk about my first look featuring these slimming capris from Boston Proper. I find these fit my frame perfectly as they hit me just a few inches below the knee. The form-fitting style allows for easy pairing with relaxed tops or a chic third layer like my denim jacket. I included my latest bodysuit obsession from Pumiey in this look as well. If you haven’t tried these bodysuits, you’re missing out! They are incredibly soft, slimming, and wrinkle-free: everything a girl needs in a bodysuit, and the price point is fantastic. My exact denim jacket is unfortunately out of stock at the moment but I’ve linked a few similar options. Finally, this stunning pair of statement wedges from Sarah Flint is the icing on the cake for this comfortable yet chic look. Use the codes below to save 15% off my wedges and 20% off my capris.

In this second look, I’ve styled the same pair of Hampton pedal pushers in black with a classic linen sleeveless shirt also from Boston Proper. This is a perfect example of how a more fitted style of capris can give you a wider variety of options for looser tops. This top comes in 8 different color options and can be worn long, tucked, or even tied! It’s a warm-weather essential with breathable, keep-cool natural fabric and a versatile button-front shirt silhouette. I finished this look with a fabulous pair of textured slide sandals on sale! They’ve been discounted under $100 so if you’ve been considering these sandals, now is the time to snap them up!

There you have it ladies, 2 chic options for wearing this throwback style that will have you looking and feeling fabulous. Are you embracing this trend or patiently waiting for it to fade away? Let me know in the comments!
