Fall is approaching, but the summer heat won't let up just yet. Naturally, we're spending a couple more weeks experimenting with transitional summer-to-fall pieces. They're not only what we love, but also what we need right now - a seasonal intercession by our closets on our behalf.
The easy, natural-dyed designs from Miranda Bennett Studio, like the Wrap Top, are the perfect way to keep the summer going. This bestseller can be worn in multiple ways and we've tried out a few for you.
The Tropics: Our undergarment of choice for this look is a bikini. This style requires only a quick wrap job and looks amazing with your sarong or skirt of choice.
The Concealed Tropics: Otherwise known as The Tropics 2.0. A quick tie of the ends as seen in The Tropics, but in the back, makes this look a multi-occasion winner.
Boss Lady: "Office Appropriate" is your middle name. High neck in the front and a mild V in the back, you’re not sacrificing style for stiff dress codes.
Girls' Night Out or Date Night: An easy v-neck with a wrap bottom, this is a classic if there ever was one.
The Wrap Top is the friend who you know you can take anywhere, be it to your favorite vacation spot or to a dinner with your C.E.O. Between the styles above and your own creativity, no doubt you can make this one your own.
In our new "One Thing" series, we highlight the latest treasures we're obsessing over at the shop—with a preference toward products that are artisanal and ethically made.
THE LOW-DOWN: Handmade by artisan weavers in Rwanda using locally sourced sweetgrass and sisal. Hang them to brighten a gallery wall or place on a coffee table as a catch-all for sundry items. With every Indego Africa Plateau Basket bought, you help employ female workers in Africa and contribute to educational programs in under-served communities. What's better than supporting incredible, talented women?
