It’s surprisingly comfortable for such an unorthodox cut, and manages to look very chic when styled with something simpler and less attention grabbing.

If you’re an avid shopper like myself, you’ve definitely come across this moment whilst out in the act – chancing upon an item you immediately fall in love with, one which instantaneously ticks all the boxes you didn’t know you had in your head. Of course, it’s also typically way out of budget. Wise shoppers might resist the impulse and keep walking resolutely on, but there are times where I happily trust this gut reaction. It is, after all, the universe’s way of pointing me in the direction of a good investment. After the initial appreciative once-over, I am quick to make sure it is practical in at least one way (more often than not, these items are never practical), before I purchase it. This handy and (thankfully) astute gut reaction has on many occasions gifted me with items of clothing which end up being worn over and over again as the years go by, with my love for them never diminishing.
This particular suede top made its way into my wardrobe in a similar fashion, and while I haven’t had all that many chances to wear it, I’ve simply loved the way it looks and feels against my skin. It’s surprisingly comfortable for such an unorthodox cut, and manages to look very chic when styled with something simpler and less attention grabbing. Here’s to hoping this piece never goes out of style, and even if it does, that I will continue to invent extraordinary ways of pulling it off.
