SYC July: matchup denim, low contrast & lite

Yesterday I did a summer version of double denim with black. Several wanted to see a lighter version, so here are 2. I could also do matchy white denim. I'm not confident about the ivory Express top worn here. It has a banded waist.
1/2: Same Aeropostale jeans and Hinge vest as yesterday. Express top, Coach pointy flat loafers. Calvin Klein belt.
3/4: same but with Old Navy white vest.
What do you like and what changes would you make?

    I like the lighter look! I think I prefer the blue vest to the white, but maybe that's because it's over a white top. I don't love banded tops, but I think how you've styled this one here is good. (I can't tell it's banded in the photos.) I kind of wish it didn't have quite so much drapiness going on, since there's a topper, but I think it works.

    Word Lily, I agree that this top is a bit too much drape for me. I do have a long assymetrical top that I've not tried but suspect the length would not work proportionately. Thank you for your helpful comment.

    FABULOUS. I love this combination, Joy. The low contrast top creates a softer effect against the denim, and its drape creates more pretty.

    I love both of the outfits. This colors look beautiful on you.

    Sooo gorgeous Joy! LOVE them both. I think I like the first one more; it feels sassier :D

    Love it with the white vest.

    I love the low-contrast top although I actually prefer the blue vest to the white. And the drapery look of the top is perfect for summer. Great look.

    Knock me over with a feather! This was unexpected Joy. This is a fabulous outfit, but I suspect not many could carry it off as well as you. I love it either way.

    I like both outfits! Can't really pick a favourite.
    Now you need to do another one with darker denim on the bottom! ;-) (just kidding, but I think it would look good too).

    I love this look - esp. the first version on you Joy. The soft colors are wonderful. Maybe I will need to consider a light blue denim jacket after all (right now all I have is a dark denim version).
