“ Brand: New Look / Type: Top „
I picked this up from my local New Look during the summer as I wanted a few more slogan T-shirts, as I feel these types of tops really jazz up an outfit and add a bit of personality, as well as not looking as boring or basic as a plain top would. New Look have a wide range of slogan T shirts and I own a couple of them, but this is probably my favourite. This is a basic T shirt with a deep scooped nec and sleeves that are a cross between vest sleeves and T shirt sleeves if that makes sense - see picture. The top's quite long on me and comes just above mid-thigh, which I don't mind too much as it makes it a more versatile top - I am able to wear it with leggings if I want and I won't feel self concious due to the length, or I can wear it tucked into jeans/shorts/a skirt, so it's very good value for money in my opinion - this isn't the cheapest T shirt around at £10.99 but I have worn it so many times that I feel like i've got my money's worth already. The top is only available in one colour - light grey, it has little flecks on it which give it that bit more texture and detail, and the slogan/picture on the T shirt is a black heart. Inside the heart it has writing saying 'Wild Child', which is in large capital letters and grey in colour meaning it doesn't clash with the rest of the T shirt or look too in your face. As I said above it has quite a deep scooped neck which does show a generous amount of cleavage meaning if you're quite self concious it'd probably be a good idea to either avoid this or wear a nice plain vest underneath. The material is described as 'neppy fabric' and it feels lovely, it is really soft and silky, and it's also very lightweight too so it doesn't keep me very warm unless layered. I particullary like layering this under a smart blazer paired with smart jeans and heels as I think that the T shirt tones the outfit down making it look more casual. This is not warm enough to wear on its own even on chilly summer days due to the thin material and short sleeves. The T shirt washes well and it's easy to iron, i've had this for over 3 months now and it doesn't really look much different to how it was when I first bought it which I think is good - the slogan has not faded and it has kept its shape really well. Overall, I do think this is a really good quality top and it's fashionable as well as versatile.
