In today’s post I’m sharing 2 ways to style the Lacson Ravello Cruz Top. One option for work and the other for play. Because, who doesn’t like options?
I hope you love this versatile summer essential as much as I do*.
Sound familiar? Yes, Oakland based Lacson Ravello is a Ten Key Pieces favorite designer. As you’ve probably seen on the blog and Instagram the Mariniere tee was my first introduction to this brand. This striped tee is a perpetual wardrobe essential and Lacson Ravello has one of the best so far (read about it here).
Now, about that Lacson Ravello Cruz Top though. I asked Kristina Lacson-McConnico how to best describe her latest summer creation.
“The front panel is hand-loomed/hand-woven 100% raw silk from India in a natural color. It has a heavy, open-weave texture that is semi-sheer. Therefore making it perfect for adding a pop of color to show through and staying cool”.
Kristina sourced the fabric from Oakland-based textile supplier, Indigo Handloom. Indigo handloom is known for their mindfully-made silks, cottons, and linens. The back panel is a cotton/spandex french terry reminiscent of your favorite cozy sweatshirt.
Office Casual: In this look I layered a nude cami underneath and paired with a tapered trouser from Oak + Fort in a neutral grey.
It’s a good idea to balance an oversized top with a slim bottom. However, the Lacson Ravello Cruz Top would pair perfectly with a wide leg culotte as well. I accessorized with the macrame textured mule from WhoWhatWear x Target. And furthered the global minimalist vibe with the bamboo Ark bag from Cult Gaia.
Date Night: Sticking with Oakland based brands I love, I tucked the Cruz top into a vintage Kilim pencil skirt found at Resurrect.
Since I couldn’t get enough of the fringe detail, I accessorized with the Elle bag from Kalu. Lastly, because this outfit reminds me of what Isabel Marant might style, I completed the look with her Lelie sandals which are on sale at 70% off (click thru to shop).
