We’re crazy for conversational tops right now! You may be thinking, what’s a conversation top? I didn’t know my tops could talk! Well, they can! Technically, they are patterns that have a repeated picture in them like birds, dogs or elephants.. At our desks at maurices we sometimes call them “critter prints”; but they can be anything like bows, boats, the silhouette of a girl…..anything! Conversation (or “conversational”) prints fit into so many of the trends right now, from the MadMen inspired 50′s and 60′s (with bows and polka dots), to the mod 70s prints, to the super preppy sailboats and whales seen on khakis and ties.
Here is how I would take my conversation top from day to night. At the maurices Home Office we have a casual dress code so we are allowed to wear jeans to work, which is why I incorporated denim into my “day” look. To dress up my denim I added a blazer, and cute nude pumps. My favorite thing about this nude blazer is the adorable bow gathering in the back! It adds such a unique girly detail to the outfit. Also, you can never go wrong adding arm candy into the mix.
When taking this look from my typical day at my desk, to date night, I added a skirt (which I’m totally obsessed with) and a moto jacket to make the look a little more casual. I kept the same pumps and bangles. These shoes are so great because they can transform with any outfit!
What I love about these two outfits is the color pallet stays the same, but the look is completely different!
Whats your favorite way to wear your conversation prints?
