Last week on my way around the town, I decided to pop into New Look and have a look at there new arrivals. Whilst on my way round I came across this lovely styled, casual Neppy Front Tie Top. As the price was very reasonable, I picked a colour that would be the most versatile. So I picked up the colour 'Cream Marl'. As I also get student discount I get an extra 10% off all purchases, which is fantastic.
-- Appearance --
The top is very simple, plain and very casual. It is one that you could easily dress up with some cute accessories or dress down with a pair of jeans. The high neck top, has a tie located at the bottom which is great as you can either tie it lightly to add a little bit more shape to your figure or leave baggy which I have (especially after eating a big meal) which gives you a little bit more room. There are four colour choices which is Cream Marl, Charcoal, Spicy Orange and Green. It nice to see that the colour range has a couple more vibrant choices for the summer ahead. This is a vest top style with the thick straps, instead of spaghetti straps. It is also a fairly good length, but if you wanted it to show a little belly flesh this can easily be achieve by moving the top up slightly and tying it tighter for it to hold there.
-- Price and Availability --
The tops are priced at £6.99 which I think is a very good price for the quality and style of the top. It is available in New Look stores and on their online website.
-- My Experience --
This top is a wonderful statement piece in my wardrobe, I have decided I will be going back to repurchase the Green and Spicy Orange to add a little bit more colour to my summer! I find the top very versatile as the Cream Marl goes very well with various outfits. You could also where this on a night out, tucked into a skirt with a few added accessories and heels to dress it up a little. I would say this is more of a casual top, but having the option to be able to dress it up is wonderful, especially if your like me and run out of outfit ideas for nights out.
It is fairly thin material which will keep you nice and cool in the summer. As it is a little chilly at the moment, the thickness isn't ideal but it does go well with a nice cardigan. I do sometimes find that with some tops the material under my arms irritates and leaves me with a rash, but so far so good and have not experienced any of this. I would definitely recommend this, it's a great staple. I also asked my mum to wash this on a cooler wash, as I didn't know what the material may turn out like if it was put in a hotter wash. The material is made of 80% Polyester and 20% Viscose. On the website it does state 'Look after me, love your planet wash at 30 degrees'. So I will continue to wash on cool and fingers crossed the material reasonably nice.
-- Conclusion --
I would recommend this as it is great for the summer months, nice and thinnish material to keep you cool. It is also very versatile, so easy to either dress up or down. Great price and can't wait to grab more!
