How to wear boxy tops

Boxy tops are cut in a box shape and give the upper body a square shape. They work for any occasion from the office to the weekends. These tops don’t give much of a feminine shape and usually just hang off your body, so we’ll need to pick out bottoms that balance the look.

I’m wearing a slightly cropped boxy top, black pearled high waisted mum jeans and white courts. I accessorised with this baker boy hat, my mum’s bag and hand candy.

While boxy tops look adorable with fitted bottoms, slouchier pants or jeans also make the look work. The trick is to highlight the waist. Here are some other ways you can wear them;

  • With a pencil skirt: for a feminine look, the slimness of the skirt will balance out the boxy top and will give you a look that will work for the office as well as night time.
  • With a pleated or full skirt: a boxy top with a full or pleated skirt will flatter straight body types. This skirt will add some volume to your bottom part and make you look curvier. Don’t we all want this?!
  • With straight legged pants or skinny jeans: pants like this define your waist and show off your curves.
  • With slouchy pants: if you think your top is a bit masculine, pair it with harem or jogger pants and it will contrast the boxy top and give you a very relaxed look.
