When it comes to a statement top, Sézane has quickly been my go-to when I’m looking for beautiful, well-made, quality tops that I will wear over and over again. I saw this one and fell in love! I love a good stripe, but this one is next level! It’s also got ruffles and a cool tie-back.

But, one good and bad thing about a bold or statement top is, well, it packs a punch and is memorable. When you wear it once, you feel like you can’t wear it again for a while (maybe that’s just me?). I’ve been guilty of wearing the same top with the same outfit over and over again, which leads to outfit fatigue.

All too often that’s a simple pair of skinny jeans or ripped jeans. While there is absolutely nothing wrong with that—let’s be real, that’s my go-to outfit—I wanted to show you a few other ways to easily switch things up.

For a while, that pushed me away from bold pieces like this, but the truth is, I love them! This striped one is a new favorite, so I thought it’d be fun to style it a few different ways to give you a little inspiration on how to change up your own statement top outfits so that they feel fresh and new all over again.

Oh, and fun fact, I had originally planned to style this blouse these exact same ways, but tried it on and I need to order a smaller size. Just further proof that these basic outfits can pair with literally any statement top!
