Summer Style Staples: The Tie-Front Top

Hi again lovelies! 💞

Look at me! I actually stuck to my promise of popping back up on the blog for more summer style content and here I am actually following through!🥳 Let’s celebrate me sticking to commitments with the details on a wardrobe essential you need for practically any casual summer occasion: the tie-front top. Scroll, sis! 👇🏾


Ok ladies, let’s settle in for a quick fashion history lesson.🤓 The tie-front top has been a staple in the fashionista’s closet for several decades, harkening back vintage vibes from as early as the 1940s.⏳ What was once a way to keep your often too-long blouse secure and flatteringly tucked while out on the farm or prepping wartime weapon armories has become a fashion statement that is 100% Southern Girl-approved. 🆗Now, go-to brands like one of my top favorites Madewell have resurrected the timeless and playful style for a new generation of trendsetters and cool girls alike.

OK, let’s talk wearability. And trust me, I got the receipts.🧾 This tie-front top is the best not-so-basic piece for any casual look because of its versatility and subtle detail that easily helps pull together a range of outfits.✔️ When I first tried this top on, I instantly knew the textured, breathable cotton would stand up to the Texas heat.👍🏾 In addition to the super comfy feel, the trending cropped style matched with a button front gives you equal parts relaxed and chic. When it comes down to the bottom line, my favorite thing about this top is the luxurious quality coupled with an affordable price that can fit any girl’s budget!💸 Here’s the ultimate kicker: my top is currently on sale for $25 (plus an extra 30% off) literally right now!

📌Before I let you go, allow me to introduce you to the first of many new items from a fave, female-owned (and Black-owned) label, AboveandBeyondDzyns. My clutch has become an all-time favorite accessory because of the impeccable detail and beautiful print that’s unmistakably and beautifully Black. The brainchild of Creative Director and boss lady👸🏾 Jennifer Anidu, the brand’s mission is to bring back the respectability of fashion along with touching the lives of those who wear her pieces. I was blessed enough to inspire a dress design, affectionately named ‘The Paige Dress’ and I cannot wait to show it to y’all soon! Hang tight, I promise a full post all about my new fave African Queen-inspired label is coming quicker than you think.


Wish me luck!🤞🏾✨ I’m going to try and make this following commitments thing a new habit. Check back in on the blog early next week for a look into my recent modeling opportunity for a female-owned jewelry brand with a beautiful purpose!
