“ Brand: Asos / Type: Womens Vest „
Asos is a great website and I always find myself browsing it whenever I feel that I need a new piece of clothing as they have such a wide range of fashionable and affordable clothing. I came across this particular top around 2 weeks ago. It immedietly caught my eye due to the bright colour and cheeky print - it's bright yellow with a smiley face on the front.
Although I was hesistant to buy it, after a bit of thought I decided to. I was concerned it might look tacky or a bit childish, and it does, but in a fun and quirky way. It would look hideously out of place in the autumn or winter but in spring and summer it's really nice as the colour is summery and bright - plus bold, pop-out type colours are really in season.
This top is from the ASOS collection, which is a 'directional, exciting and diverse' group of london based fashion designers who 'makes and breaks the fashion rules.' I paid £20 for the vest which is a decent price in my opinion as it's good quality and fashionable. It's currently on sale for £16 and as with all ASOS purchases you can get it delivered free of charge. The vest is made of a pure cotton jersey fabric and is lovely and soft and lightweight, and it doesn't feel flimsy or cheap.
The colour is a lovely deep shade of yellow and the design is very quirky and eye catching. It has eyes and a large mouth which is wide open with two teeth and a tounge which makes it look like the smiley face is laughing. The vest has a scooped neck which is quite low cut. The vest has thick straps which are much better than the spaghetti type straps as they don't fall down or bunch up. The arm holes aren't too low cut but are slightly dipped - not enough to wear a bandeau though.
The vest is a long - it comes mid-thigh on me but when it's really hot i'll just tie it into a crop top. It looks nice with anything - jeans, shorts, a skirt etc. If you wear a short skirt with it though it completely covers the skirt up so can look like you're wearing the t shirt on its own. It has a slightly baggy, relaxed fit and is available in sizes 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18. The t shirt is machine washable and washes well.
Overall this is a fun and quirky t shirt which I would reccomend - fashionable, comfortable and affordable!
