Patterned Top: Styling from Day to Night+ Fabrizio Gianni Giveaway!


Hello Ladies

I excited today to share with you two looks and how to take this lovely peacock patterned top from Fabrizio Gianni from a Day to Night Look. We all love to make the most out of our wardrobes, and buy pieces that can serve us in many ways, or make our closets more versatile. Fabrizio Gianni has come out with a new line of V Neck patterned tops for fall with some fun fashionable looks. You have seen this style top on me, in a bright rasberry color when I showed”How to Wear Brights .
These patterns can be dressed up and down, in ways I am going to show you today. The pattern stood out to me, as I love the shades of blue and moss green and lets face it, the peacock is a beautiful bird! I am doing my best here, to strut my struff!

The Day time look with all of the colors of the top, I thought I would pair it with an a-line teal skirt I have for fall  I wanted to bring out more of the blue and green and compliment the top. Adding a black croc JJ Winters clutch kept it professional and stream lined, as well as the black tights and Coach bow kitten heels. You all know I love jewelry and often look for unique, vintage, or vintage inspired pieces, and this necklace fit the bill with the teal stone, and green oval center it was a perfect match. I actually used to wear alot of browns, blacks and neutral colors when I was in college, however, if you know me now, I love color! What more of a beautiful season is fall with all of  its glorious colors, and sharing the love of color with what one wears. The patterned tops have many colors to choose from and add more color and print to your wardrobe!

1st Outfit : Daytime Look: Peacock print Jersey Knit Top c/0 Fabrizio Gianni, Necklace Vintage via Etsy, Earrings: 1928, A Line Teal Skirt LOFT ( years ago), Coach Mandy bow kitten heels ( check Ebay!)







Here are some other tops in their fall line:  Top Left: CARBON COPY,  TEAL TRIBE, BOTTOM Left: HIBISCUS,  ZODIAK

Just another example, if I wished to style one of these tops for fall, the Zodiak print, at the bottom right, I might pair with a velvet burnt orange blazer, and some burgundy pants  or maroon jeans like these from Fabrizio Gianni HERE  and brown ankle booties to pick up the colors in the top  Both colors are on trend this year. It is wonderful to play with color and fall is a great time to do so with all of the beautiful color palettes in nature this time of year as well!

Tell me, how might you style one of these tops for fall? 



What I wanted to share now, is taking that same printed moss green, navy teal patterned shirt, and how to create a Night Out look by making some changes I decided a boot cut dark denim jean would be great for a night out, as dark denim is flattering and has a dressier feel for that night out with the hubby or friends Typically, one could also grab a black leather jacket, or black blazer for this look out, but for this look, I decided to highlight the color once again, and wear my Anthropologie, quilted peplum vegan teal leather moto jacket, smoke grey heels, a change to a navy, feminine and frilly crinkled leather clutch, and some sparkling jewelry takes this professional or Daytime look to that Night Out on the Town ! I am ready for that cocktail now! 🙂

Outfit Details Below: Teal Vegan jacket: Anthroplologie, Earrings and Necklace: Charming Charlie, Peacock print 3/4 sleeve V-neck Jersey c/o Fabrizio Gianni , Dark Bootcut Designer Denim: Rock and Republic jeans,( Nordstrom,) Nine West Grey pumps, Tressje Designer Leather clutch

    I love dark greens for Fall. My current outfit has some olive on the dress – check it out. I love your top, moto jacket (I own an almost identical one in olive green) and pencil skirt are all gorgeous JESS.

    Have a great weekend! <3 Ada.

      Thanks Jodie! I have this top in a solid as well, posted the rasberry colored top when I wrote about wearing bright colors. This was my favorite print, glad you like it, I was thinking when I created the looks, it could go both ways, i was aiming for more of a day professional look, ( like at work) and dark denim for a night out I see what you mean too. xx

    Jess, these two looks are great on you!.

    Who else could pull off such a low rise jean? {washboard-stomach-envy alert!}
    I love your knack of making the casual items look smart and feminine….that jean and jacket combo, for example, with the delicate jewelry and that yummy nail colour! You look every inch a lady.
    My favourite look is your kick-pleat A-line skirt…..That colour! The cut! Your fabulous legs! Just stunning.
    The patterned top looks amazing with your colouring.
    I would probably style the first top (with the lettering) pairing it with tweed trousers (7/8th length) and chunky heeled boots….maybe a herringbone or a subtle houndstooth print? Toning everything down with my old denim jacket and a fabulous bag. I think these look very versatile.
    Great inspiration, as always!

      Thanks so much, glad you like both looks 🙂
      These arent even my low rise jeans 🙂 I have plenty of William Rast jeans, a Justin Timberlake designer line that came out years ago, that I love to wear, and they are lower rise, but not too low. But boy, you are too good for my ego!

      Thanks so much I loved the jacket and found such a deal on it, it is lined and vegan leather, has ruffles on the back like peplum. I will get more detail on it the next time we photograph it You flatter me too much! I appreciate your comments.The green and blue just really attracted me to the look

      I love the idea for styling the top you mentioned, and appreciate it, as you were the only person commenting on how they would style one of the tops. Love the idea of tweed or herrinbone, it would be great and I could see you styling it with your flair and textures.

      Have a great week!
