3 Ways to Wear Red Velvet’s New Tops

Teacher's pet
Teacher's pet top
This season we included two tops in our dress collection! This green ascot top is made of stretch jersey knit with a cotton sateen collar. It's my absolute favorite shade of green! Here are three ways to wear it modeled by our senior intern Mallory.

In Look 1, Mallory wore the top with her own high waisted vintage capris. We all agree that this top is perfect for high waisted skits and pants, which are our favorites this season.

In Look 2, Mallory  chose high waisted shorts with cute knee socks and a cardigan. I love this look. It's casual, but still lots of fun!

Look 3 is my personal favorite! Mallory wore a lace skirt and black tights with cute heels with her Teacher's Pet blouse. So cute and polished! She could wear this on a job interview.

Sketchbook crop top
Next up, we have the Sketchbook Crop Top. This adorable fishtail top is made of crepe knit polyester. It has the cutest floral pattern that looks like sketches. I love this piece because there truly are so many ways to wear it!

In Look 1, Kinsey wore the crop top with a pair of high waisted jeans. This is the easiest, more straight forward styling for the top. It's super cute and would look great with a cardigan layered over it too.

Note about the jeans: These pants were designed by me, patterned by Jamie and sewn by Mallory. We love them so much, but could not feesibly produce them for Red Velvet this season. I'll share the full story about them in a future post!

In Look 2, Kinsey wore her denim cut off shorts with heels and a cute 1970s hat. This look feels really 70s to me. Love it!

For Kinsey's third look She layered the top over a vintage dress and added a skinny belt. This look is my favorite because it's perfect for Autumn and shows how versitile the top really is!

I hope you've enjoyed these 3 Ways to Wear It Features! I have one more to post later today along with the dress release time and F.A.Q. If you have any questions about the Autumn collection, please post them here in the comments.

We're so excited… Can't believe it's almost September 1st! xo, Elsie
