“ Manufacturer: New Look / Type: Bralet „
The top is available to buy in store at New Look or from their website which is www.newlook.co.uk. I was browsing on the website so I purchased it from there. The top cost me £16.99 and is available from a size 6 - 14. The top is black and made from 100% cotton and has gold stud detailing all over it. I love the look of the bralet tops and already have a few and when I saw this top I couldn't resist buying it. I am normally a size 6-8 in tops so I decided to get a size 8 as I didn't want the top too tight anyway. As soon as the top arrived I tried it on with a high waisted black pencil skirt and some new shoe boots which I purchased a few weeks ago. I was going into town at the weekend so this would be a great opportunity to wear this outfit. As the straps to the top are quite thick I didn't need to wear a strapless bra as the straps to the top hid my bra straps anyway. The top felt really comfortable and it had some slight stretch to it as well but only a small amount. I'm glad I purchased the size 8 as I think the size 6 would have been much too tight for me. On the back of the top is a gold zip which enables you to get into the top more easily, how-ever I can slip this on over my head without having to undo the zip. When I was out a few people asked me where I got the top from as they said they liked it and they loved the way it looked with my pencil skirt and shoe boots. I wore the top for at least 3-4 hours and I didn't feel too hot in it when I was going in and out of bars.
The top is hand wash only probably due to the stud detailing over the top. I have washed the top and it washes very easily and comes out looking just as good as new. The top must be left to dry naturally. The top doesn't really crease as it has a small amount of Elastane in it so you will find that you don't need to iron the top which is great as you can't iron it anyway.
This top is quite different for me as I normally go for plain tops or tops with very plain patterns on. I wouldn't normally go for a studded top like this how-ever it grabbed my eye as soon as I saw it. The model on the website was also wearing it with a pencil skirt which is probably what prompted me to buy it as I thought it looked great as an outfit. IAs the top is hand wash only, I think the stud detailing will last a lot longer on this than it would if you could machine wash it. I love this top and will be wearing it on many more occasions.
