Beautifully gathered along the neckline, the soft, light fabric of this bardot top falls gently, cascading downwards; it creates the kind of style that flutters delicately in the breeze and bounces elegantly in response to your movement. Bell sleeves fashion a dignified feel as they, too, ripple with motion. This flared style sleeve works so flatteringly as its greatness envelopes the arm in a sophisticated manner.
Having full shoulders and neckline on show admittedly did make me cautious that this style would be too unflattering. However, the vertical stripes printed across the fabric account for this as they give the illusion of a taller frame. The use of the stripes are also a subtle way of adding pattern to the top without taking too much away from it’s beautiful shape and movement.
Until now, I’d never actually had a pair of River Island jeans and oh have I been missing out! I have a friend who seems to live in jeans from RI and it was really about time I gave them a go. I opted for the Molly pair; their fit is so comfortable and complimentary. I paired them with this bardot top for the strong structure which they have in contrast to the light floaty top.
I bought this top in a small independent shop whilst on holiday in Majorca. Being silly ol’ me, I didn’t keep the label and therefore do not know the name of the label which this top is from. However, you can find ones alike from Boohoo, New Look and Miss Selfridge.
