Styling Notes: In the second part of this blog post series on how to style this white blouse two ways, I’m sharing how to dress up this look for an office setting. I paired this blouse with high-waisted black pants, a statement necklace, and a sleek tote bag to create a polished look.

 

Zara Flared Sleeve Top – Size S

What I loved…

  • Length - I have a short torso so I often find that tops are too long on me and overwhelm my small frame. This top is more of a cropped length (Center front = 16.25’’) so it fit my short torso just right. I prefer to wear these shorter length tops with high- rise pants, but it’s still doable to wear with mid-rise pants as well.
  • Wide sleeve opening – These flared bell sleeves are perfect for women with curvier arms because of the wider sleeve opening (measurement = 9.5’’). Usually I have trouble finding tops that fit me at Zara because the sleeves tend to be tight around my curvy arms. I definitely appreciated that these sleeves were more flowy.

 

Garment measurements:

Center neck drop = 2.25''

Bust = 37''

Center front = 16.25''

Center back = 18.5''

Sleeve opening = 9.5''
