Fashion experiment: Baby batwing top

At first glance, vintage baby batwing tops did not grab my attention and these tops are a bit 'mature' like. The picture I had in my mind was aunties in these big loose tops pairing with slacks. Now, how come I have one? Well, I thought I was going to give it a try especially since it was on sale.

I was excited when I received the parcel at my office and can't wait till I got home to try them (I ordered 3 different styles of baby batwing tops). I fell in love with them the minute I put them on and can't wait to work on them.

Pair the top with tight fitting bottom such as skinny jeans, high waist skirt or pants to avoid bagginess.

Treat it as a cardi-like piece and layer it on a dress.

Mix with another print of the same hue for a trendy look.

Tie a knot at the bottom instead of tucking into a skirt or a pair of pants.

The picture of baby batwing tops in my head has changed completely. I'm glad that I've taken the step to try it. Now, I can't wait for my second piece of floral baby batwing top to arrive at my doorstep!
