Q&A: How to Wear a Sleeveless Trapeze Top

July 20th, 2007

Q:  How do I wear a sleeveless trapeze top?

LaROK Sequin Swing MinidressA:  My favorite silhouette with trapeze tops is a Big-over-Small silhouette, which pairs the voluminous trapeze top with a fitted bottom.  This fitted bottom can be a skirt, a pair of pants, or shorts.

What’s great about this Big-over-Small silhouette is that it’s both dramatic and figure flattering–the look is not only stunning, but it also hides a tummy.

    Shorts are a sure winner! Wear with wedges and walk in technicolor!

    Great advice! I couldn’t agree more. I added this to The Weekly Snob, since all should read it! Thanks!

    P.S. I think if your arms are not toned, this is a top to avoid.

    Thanks, Lauren! Yeah, I would agree that these tops require extra trips to the gym in order to get the upper arms into shape.

    And Antartica–love your wedge suggestion!

    i wear with skinny jeans or short shorts–and feel very much like my mom in the ’70s!
