Marina del Rey, CA

The statement top: flirty, fun and fashion-forward, it's the style you need to add to your summer lineup. And while last year it was all about off-the-shoulder shirts, 2017 is shaping up to be a lot more eclectic with ruffles, one-shoulder designs, ribbons, bows and yes, even beaded sleeves. And every retailer from fast fashion to high-end is feeling the statement shirt mania, so no matter how big or small your shopping budget, there are plenty of options out there to choose from. To get you started, today I am wearing this ruffle sleeve, tie-waisted top from SHEIN. It is incredibly affordable (under $20) and between the lavender color and flattering tie-waist design, it's a great place to start.
