You know this girl is desperately trying to hang onto Summer when she features a vest top during the middle of September. I’m not ready for the colder months!
Vest tops for me tend to be a bit of a no-no when you’ve got bigger boobs. If the cut of the neckline is too low then they tend to look unappealingly top heavy and I don’t want that. But this isn’t to say vest tops aren’t impossible for a big-breasted gal like me.
I think the choice of how plunging the neckline is and what sort of material and pattern is used on the top, can help avoid these bad boys taking centre stage all the time. This Floral Pleated Cami Top was packed into a full rack of sale items on my last visit to New Look and I knew just from the neckline that this might be a winner for me.
A v-neck that wasn’t too low and the dainty floral design had me throwing this on with eagerness in the dressing room. It went really well with my ripped denim trousers and I loved pairing the cami top with these denim shorts that are probably also from New Look because hey, it’s my favourite store.
I love the pleated pattern as I feel it adds a more slender look to my figure. It also slightly distorts the floral design which is quite unusual but I like it. I’m pretty sad that I bought this top at the end of the Summer (or lack of Summer should I say) here in the UK. Although, I’m going to take it on my holidays in October so it isn’t being packed away into storage just yet.
Vest Tops are certainly a basic that should be in every wardrobe and this is definitely one that I’ll be bringing out next Summer. I can’t believe this Summer is over. FML.
