3 Ways to Wear your Favorite Blue Fish Top

There are infinite ways tstyle our unique, colorful, and fun artisan-made tops. Looking for some fresh ideas? Here are a few of our favorites!

With your favorite leggings

Is there any outfit more comfortable than a pair of leggings and a flowy top? We didn’t think so. That’s why we can’t recommend this combination enough.

Regardless of whether your leggings are from Blue Fish or another favorite retailer, they’re a great item to pair with anything Blue Fish. Try solid black or grey leggings to keep it classic and show your top, or play around with patterns and colors for a more playful look.

Added bonus: If you’re feeling the cold this winter, you can also layer them under our pants, dresses, or skirts for an added layer of warmth!

Belted around the waist

If you’d like to change up the silhouette of your shirt or tunic, we recommend belting your top to create a completely different look that hugs your figure. Typically, you’ll want it to sit around the narrowest part of your torso, but you can experiment with higher or lower placement to see what’s most comfortable for you.

Our shorter and longer tops and tunics can easily be belted. Use a thin belt to keep the top billowy, or try a thick one to add a more defined waist. Keep it classic with chic leather (or faux-leather) or get creative and play with fun scraps of fabric like we often do.

Layered with other shirts and accessories

This is typical of our Lagenlook style. We love to play with layers--two or three or sometimes even four! Layers can be as simple as a long cardi over a dress or more complex, with aprons, skirts, pants, shirts, and cardis thrown into the mix.

There’s a bit of a method to this--we recommend wearing the longest piece as your “base” layer, and then adding progressively shorter pieces as you go so that you can see and enjoy every one. However, the options are limitless. Play with lengths, colors, and silhouettes until you find what you love! And don’t forget accessories like scarves and necklaces to top it all off.

There is no wrong way to wear Blue Fish! Keep it simple, get crazy, match head to toe, or mix up colors and patterns to your heart’s content… our clothes are all about showing off your unique personality and style.

And remember… Blue Fish is designed to be worn with the following thoughts and feelings held closely in mind and soul:

we love it both ways! our signature silhouettes are often enough of a statement

other days 100 proof pure art will make your day!

there are no rules in Blue Fish land

it is our pleasure to help should you need a bit of friendly guidance or some gentle creative reassurance

Size Guide


Blue Fish sizing is uniquely ours. We have developed this system to fit many body types, shapes, & heights comfortably. Here is the Blue Fish size chart and its traditional size equivalent:

00 – only available in select styles. fits up to size 6

0 – fits up to size 10

1 – fits ups to size 16

2 – fits up to size 22

3 – only available in our studio tees & some tunics. fits up to size 26

O/S – one size that fits most customers

Remember that each style is unique & has different measurements--please check the size chart on your item of interest for exact measurements! One style may fit you differently than other styles you have worn before and we strongly recommend checking the measurements before making your purchase.


You might wear a combination of sizes depending on your body shape and how you prefer the drape of your clothing. For instance, you might wear a size 0 pants and a size 1 top. If you prefer looser, more flowy clothing, size up--if you prefer more fitted pieces, choose those closer to your actual measurements. We provide measurements for each style so you can find the best fit for the way you like to wear your Blue Fish.
