The Chicest Way To Style A Bandeau Top


When Cara Delevingne stepped out for Stella McCartney’s Fall 2015 show in Paris, she effortlessly showcased how to make a bandeau top appropriate for daytime. If you’ve been wanting to give the super-cropped trend a try but are weary of showing too much skin, look no further than a tuxedo-inspired topper. Cara opted for a button-embellished jacket and trousers, but this look can be achieved with a vest, dress or blazer. A little bit sexy and a whole lot of chic, allow these outfit pairings to inspire you to take the plunge.
