I love fashion and styling-so I was super excited to see Mandi create her own take on my 'Three Ways to Wear it" feature. It's so fun to see how other cute girls style their wardrobes, so inspiring!6a00d8358081ff69e201538e9554ef970b-800wi

Hi friends! If your wardrobe is anything like mine, it might be busting your closet at its seams with a variety of thrifted clothes and online splurges. Lately I've been cutting down on thrift store shopping for myself, and really focusing on buying quality vintage pieces that can be workhorses for my wardrobe. I loved the "Three Ways to Wear it" series Elsie did for her Red Velvet dress line, and thought I would join in on the fun.

This Spring I've been obsessing over white sheer and crochet tops. They're perfect for layering and are so easy to mix in with a variety of styles. This blouse is a vintage 1950's sheer button-up - a piece that's easy to find at antique shops or online at Etsy or eBay. I'm sure this summer I will find even more ways to mix it into some new ensembles!

1Who says white can't be slimming? I buttoned up the blouse all the way to my neck, and paired it with a short high-waisted skirt. In combination with the white hat and shoes, I ended up wearing one color (white) from head to toe, which is a great lengthening technique. I also added a different hued, tailored blazer to visually nip the waist and add some interest.

I love the layered looks from the '90s, but especially adore the refined styles of the '60s. Layering this pretty vintage blouse with more inexpensive thrifted items is a great way to add some '90s funk to an outfit.

The bohemian feel of cowboy boots and a floppy hat is a great casual aesthetic for so many occasions. But if you want to dress up the look a bit, and add some extra interest, layer a sheer blouse under a pretty floral dress.

Wearing a sheer blouse with a nude camisole or bra underneath can be quite the daring move. I like to class it up a bit by buttoning up the blouse to the neck, wearing a big floppy bow, adding a modest pencil skirt, and topping it off with a pair of not-too-high pumps.
