“ Brand: New Look / Type: Print Shirt „
When browsing the New Look website I saw this on there and decided that I liked the look of it straight away. This wasn't like me as I normally go for plain coloured things and don't tend to wear patterned things or clothing with any graphics on. I went into my local New Look store and happened to the see the top on the way to the fitting rooms so thought I may as well try it on.
The top cost me £14.99 from my local New Look store but it can also be purchased from their website for the same price. The shirt comes in one colour which is shell pink and is available from a size 6 - 18. The shirt is made from 100% Polyester. The shirt is sleeveless and has an all over bird print in pastel and cream. The shirt also has a classic collar with button fastening. I loved the look of the shirt as I could wear this casually but I could also dress it up a bit as well. I thought this would look great with a pair of skinny fit jeans, or black leggings. In terms of length the cuts off at the top of my hips, so it isn't very long. It's the same length at the back so cuts off just above my bottom! The shirt was really soft and comfortable, how-ever when wearing the shirt for the first time I did notice that it kept popping open. This wasn't due to it being too tight and it was a little loose fitting and it wasn't too tight about my bust as I don't have a huge bust. I actually noticed that the button holes were rather large for the small pink buttons, which is why it kept popping open. I had to give this to a friend to make the button holes smaller before I could actually wear it out. When I did wear the top out it looked lovely, and can either be dressed up or down. The shirt is really soft against my skin and is comfortable to wear as it's not tight fitted. The shirt is perfect for the warm weather as it's sleeveless and kept my quite cool. I don't normally go for pink clothing, how-ever this was a very pale pink and I loved the bird print on it.
The top can be washed at 40 with similar colours. I also washed the top inside out as well. It recommends to air dry the top rather than use a tumble dryer, this didn't take long on a warm but windy day. The top washed brilliantly and came out clean and really soft. You can iron the top how-ever it recommend to iron it on the reverse. This really is a lovely shirt, even though I had to get someone to make the button holes smaller it was well worth it as I have now worn the shirt a good few times. As the button holes needed making smaller I can only give the top 4 out of 5 stars, otherwise it would have got 5 stars!!
