This look of Charlotte's is really fun because it's basic premise can be applied to a number of different genres. It's primarily a play on proportions and silhouettes: high-low and flowy on top, skinny on the bottom. She's done it in a meet-and-greet appropriate variation, blending a softly detailed, drape-y silk top with slim denim. Killer strappy heels complete the outfit. The variation on the far right is the closest in feel to her look, showcasing a semi-formal racerback tank with crisscross detailing, paired with leather-panel leggings and black suede sandals. Slihouettes are key here: bottoms have to be clearly form-fitting, tops have to be specifically non-bodycon. Style and material are open to choice, as long as the level of formality balances out. For example, if you decided to do this look with a slouchy cotton tank, a tuxedo-stripe slim pant would balance the formality by elevating the tee, while a silk tank would add that je ne se quoi even to something as laidback as ripped denim. Speaking of ripped denim ;), this play on billowy and slim works fabulously with it. If you don't want to go the silk tank route, a more relaxed - but cray hot- variation is the hi-low denim top, finished with retro sneakers. You could DIY a top like this by cutting or knotting a denim workshirt, if you can't find or don't already own a nonchalant statement piece, such as this one. A more polished variation on this same theme is a silk (or silk-like) buttondown, paired with slim ponte pants and block heels. This is work-appropriate, but also fits casual restaurants, shopping outings, day date or other semi-dressy-casual events. So, go with the flow ...and pair it with skinny bottoms ;) Happy Styling!
