“ Brand: Boohoo / Type: Denim top „
Anyone who has read some of my other reviews will know that I'm a fan of BooHoo, the online fashion retailer. A growing trend this summer has been denim and in particular denim tops and shirts, when going on holiday I was browsing the BooHoo.com website for some cheap beach wear when I came across the 'Ava zip up denim bodice'.
This is a strappy top which is tight fitted and denim it had piping on it which defines the top of the bodice and a gold zip which is runs from the top to the bottom of the garment. Zips are also fashionable this season especially on vests and body con skirts etc.
As previously stated the bodice is tight fitted but it is very comfortable to wear and looks good with practically anything, I wear this top with body con skirts and harem trousers. It is possible to dress this top up or down with simple things such as jewellery, added a scarf or changing what you wear the top with.
I bought this top in a size 8 and found that it was not quite full length, as in it showed some flesh. This was my own fault for not thoroughly reading the product description however I think this adds to the overall look of the bodice.
I paid £15 online for this top with £3.00 postage and packaging. I think £15 is very reasonable for this item as it is highly fashionable and the tailoring is second to none. I received a lot of compliments when I wore this top and there was no need to recommend this top to anybody else as they all asked me where I got it from so that they could make the purchase themselves!
Overall, I think this is a great product to wear in summer and a great alternative to vest tops which can get quite boring, therefore I award this top 5 stars, a great item again from BooHoo.
The denim/chambray style was quite big in 2010 with many different retailers selling denim dresses, shirts & tops etc. The style is very versatile and you can do quite a lot with it and dress it both up or down which is good. I'm a regular visitor to Boohoo.com which is where I came across this bodice.
It is denim with thin straps which are adjustable so you can get the right fit for your body, it zips up the middle with a black and copper coloured zip. The zip does pull up easily and I haven't found mine to ever get stuck. This top fits in perfectly with the chambray style and I've found I can do so much with it. I've only had this top for about 2 months now and I've already gotten plenty of use out of it (and that's not like me as I usually only wear things once!)
I've worn this as part of a casual outfit with jeans and pumps, I've worn it with a little skirt and I've dressed it up with skinny jeans and lots of accessories. A few long necklaces look particularly nice with this top. It is very on trend and suits so many different personalities and styles whether you are a bit of a rocker, a hippy dresser, a trendy dresser this top will suit you.
I must mention that this top is quite tight fitting, so if you are going to buy it then it may be a good idea to buy a size up from what you usually wear. I'm not sure how well this top would fit someone with a bigger bust though as the Cup sizes on it seem quite small, I have quite a small chest so it's fine for me.
This top is quite short in length at 49cm so it is a cropped style, but it isn't so short that your whole tummy will be on show. The material is 80% Cotton, 18% Polyester & 2% Elastane. It is also Machine Washable so it is easy to care for.
Available in Sizes 8 - 10 - 12 - 14 UK and currently priced at £10 on Boohoo.com (Reduced from £15)
