“ Brand: Asos / Type: Vest „
I've been a huge fan of Bob Dylan's music for around five years now, and this sounds pretty weird as he's 71 now but he was a total babe when he was younger which is why when I saw this vest top while browsing ASOS I instantly loved it and bought it without hesistation. I paid £18 which I personally think is a little steep for a basic white slogan vest, but to be fair it is good quality and it is very versatile too - i've already worn it a number of times and have only had it for around two weeks so i'm definitely getting my moneys worth. Also, when you look at how much Topshop charge for similar tops, this is a much cheaper option but obviously it still looks good and is of good quality.
This vest is obviously sleeveless and it has the thick straps rather than the spaghetti type straps. I prefer the thick straps as they cover my bra strap and are much less flimsy than the thinner straps. The vest has a scooped neck which is very deep and as a result it's very low cut - lower cut than I had expected and it drapes in the middle slightly so in my opinion it's a good idea to wear a bandeau underneath or maybe even layer another vest undearneath. When I do this I always wear a bright coloured vest or bandeau to give a pop of colour to the outfit as the vest is black and white which to be honest isn't a very summery colourscheme!
The vest has quite a boyish fit to it if that makes sense, it's more of a boyfriend style vest than a girly/cropped vest due to the shape and it's also quite long which I personally like - it comes half way down my bum so although it has some length to it, it's not too long to be tucked in to jeans/skirt/shorts but it's not too short to wear with leggings - this is just the right length in my opinion! The picture on the front shows Bob playing his legendary harmonica. He's wearing dark sun glasses and his hair is dark and curly, so it is obviously a picture from earlier on in his career. He's wearing a smart black suit and the picture portrays him well in my opinion, you can tell he's a rock star and I think most people recognise who it is as he is so well known.
This top is very easy to style and looks fab with anything. I wore it under cut-off dungarees today, with skinnies and heels last week and I intend on also wearing it when its warmer with shorts and skirts and it'll also be good for wearing over a bikini when i'm sunbathing on holiday. It'd also look nice layered underneath a cardigan and blazer. I've found this to be a good top to layer under cropped jumpers too as it is quite long. The vest is made from a lovely soft jersey material which is quite silky to the touch. It's lightweight but not ridiculously thin and it feels like good quality rather than cheap and flimsy. It is 45 percent cotton and 55 percent polyester and it is machine washable. I've ironed mine a few times too and it's been fine. Sizes available range from UK six to UK eighteen. I would reccomend getting your true size as it is slightly oversized and designed to be slightly baggy so getting a size bigger wouldn't really look right in my opinion!
Overall, this is good value for money. Great quality, very versatile and I overall reccomend it. On a quick side note, there is also a men's version of this available, although it's a tee shirt rather than a vest.
