December Sun or Rain “Tops”?


Photography: Mario Testino, magazine: Vogue US

Every season brings new style of tops to give every woman the desirable refreshing look. Tops are perhaps the easiest worn outfits. When you go out shopping for women tops, there are a number of things to be considered. Where the colour complimenting your skin tone is important and the style of top is equally essential.


I love looking for structured, button-down tops that have a bit of a ruffle/funky detail, or floatier ones that have draping going on. If I'm going less conservative on top, I try to balance it out by pairing it with a more traditional bottom piece to portray a classic yet stylish look.

This week my latest obsession is all about trendy tops. I went in to the store couple of yesterday to pick up a few things for my upcoming trip to Manchester, and fell in love with just about everything they have in store at the moment.


The most important thing while shopping for women tops is that they should make you comfortable. If you spot something worth buying, be sure to get it in a formfitting size. Any top that is either oversized or too tight will make you look heavier than you are. Try layering a cute jacket or cardigan over , sleeveless tops until the weather warms up (mmm.. that applies to me here, how sad). ^_^
