“ Brand: TopShop / Type: Womens T-Shirt „
Some of you may have noticed that the in thing this spring/summer is cropped tops. Ok, so this is fine if you have a flat tummy, how-ever not so flattering for the larger/curvier woman out there who don't feel comfortable showing their mid-drift! I've always been a fan of crop tops anyway as I have a very flat stomach with quite a lot of muscle definition due to exercise and keeping fit so I love wearing crop tops. There are lots of crop tops about in stores such as Republic, New Look TopShop and other high street stores. These vary in design and price and some come up shorter than others. I was browsing on the Topshop website the other week, looking for cropped vest tops which I know they are selling at the moment. I couldn't actually find these on their website, how-ever I did come across lots of other cropped tops and t-shirts and I loved the look of this one.
The top is available to buy in either pink or white and both colours come with a black printed rocking horse on the front of it. I'm not sure why, but I really liked the fact the top had a rocking horse on it and although I don't normally go for pink coloured clothing I thought the top would look great in the spring/summer with a casual pair of jeans. The pink wasn't a bright pink, but is more of a pale pink and has little specks of white in amongst the pink colour. The rocking horse does look a little faded how-ever this is the style and print of the top, which I think looks good. The top in either colour is £14.00 to buy from their website or in store and is avaliable from a size 6 up to about a size 14. I did go into my local Topshop to see if they had this in store, how-ever they didn't which I why I ended up ordering it online. I purchased a size 8 in this top as it looked quite loose fitting anyway and I sometimes find that topshop tops come up slightly bigger on me.
The top isn't tight fitting and fits fairly loose, so it will keep you cool when the weather gets warmer. The top is basically a cropped style t-shirt as it has very short sleeves, which are also quite loose around the arms, which is nice as I hate tight sleeves round the tops of my arms, especially in the summer as it makes my under-arms too hot. I am a size 8 on top and when I wear the top it cuts off just underneath my belly-button so it only shows some of my stomach and not too much, which means it's great for wearing during the day when going to town or down my local pub. The top is comfortable to wear and because it's made from cotton it keeps me feeling cool and fresh as well. I have worn the top a number of times with some casual jeans and trainers; how-ever the top would also look good with a pair of leggings and flip flops or sandals to give it more of a summery look. I have washed the top twice and it washes very well without stretching, shrinking or the colour fading. In fact each time I have washed the top it fits exactly how it did when I first purchased it. I love this top as I can wear is casually with some jeans and trainers during the day. I wouldn't dress the top up with heels and leggings as I personally think the top look too casual for this. As the top is loose fitting it's easy to move about in and it's comfortable to wear. This is a great top for women who don't like to show too much of their stomach as it doesn't come up too short. I give the top 5 out of 5 stars as I think its good value, is made well and looks good to wear during the day.
