I was delighted to find these easy to pull together outfits styled with untucked shirts and blouses. Most of them are roomy and boxy, but some are smocked or have wrap-front detailing to create waist definition. The bottoms are anything from denim shorts, olive shorts and black shorts, to wide crops, lantern pants and wide legs in neutrals like olive and white. Shoes are flat sandals, slides, or flatform sandals.
These can be great casual combinations for Summer when you’re not into wearing skirts and dresses, and are looking for something dressier than a t-shirt.
Here’s a very A-line version of the vibe in more detail. A pair of patterned and roomy wide crops is paired with a black asymmetrical trapeze tunic that picks up the black in the pattern. The tunic is draped and flowing for ample ventilation and a forgiving fit, but structured on the shoulders to look polished. You might prefer the top without sleeves if sleeves are sticky in Summer.
The shorter side of the tunic’s hem creates the illusion of a semi-tuck, although it’s not tucked at all. The high-low design feature of the top elongates the leg line by showcasing more of the pants from the crotch point upwards. If the hem of the tunic had been straight, the leg line would look shorter because more of the pants would be covered. The two-toned sandals, earrings and necklace are a perfect match with the palette. Elegantly casual.
