I get a lot of questions about styling and have recently had some requests for styling tips for the Sutton Blouse in particular, especially in the colder months.  I thought it would be fun to show you how I wear it, both on it’s own and as a layering piece to give you some ideas.

1 – Under a Fitted Jacket

This is how I have been wearing my Sutton Blouse the most this fall.  Jeans and a fitted jacket with either boots or flats.  I like this outfit because the deep V makes me feel less buttoned up and the fact that the back extends out the back of my jacket and covers my bum in super skinny jeans is always a good idea.


2 – With an Oversized Sweater

I love wearing oversized sweaters in the fall.  Paired with skinny jeans or leggings and boots and I am ready to head out the door and be super comfy.


3 – With my Hudsons

I think that you have to be careful when pairing a loose top with loose pants, but I have found that if I do a little front tuck and wear it with heels then the silhouette is much more flattering.  This is one super comfy outfit.  And if it gets cold I would just throw my leather jacket on top.


4 – With a Skirt and Blazer

To dress it up a bit I paired my Sutton Blouse with a fitted blazer and knit pencil skirt.  I like wearing the Sutton Blouse with this outfit because the deep V allows me to feel less librarian and a little more edgy.  Otherwise I think that I would feel super conservative and a little clausterphobic.


I hope these styling ideas helped give you some ideas for wearing your Sutton Blouse when it’s cold outside.  Today was the last day of the sewalong, but I am working on some variations that should be popping up over the next few weeks.  Thanks so much for sewing or following along!

    These all look great! I’ve already been wearing my first Sutton loads with skinnies, a cardigan and boots, I’ve got my second one (with a round neckline variation) cut and ready to sew.

    Hi – I have just finished my Sutton Blouse – I love it! I will need to do an fba I think, for the next one. Will you be posting a tutorial on how to do an fba?

      probably not. I thought about it, but since there are so many tutorials out there and the top is so oversized that most people probably don’t need to do one I decided it probably wasn’t necessary. So glad you like your top though. i would love to see your top and fba version.
