LUXE TO LESS

The Press - Your Weekend (The Press) - - Fashion & Beauty -

There’s some­thing un­de­ni­ably com­fort­ing about wrap­ping your­self in a soft, chic top, so we’re de­lighted to see wrap tops back in style this sea­son.

Giv­ing a big nod to bal­let style and also to one of the better fashion fads of the 80s, wrap tops have gen­tly re-wrapped them­selves around the fashion world’s heart for 2017 – and for good rea­son, as the right one can be both flat­ter­ing and fem­i­nine.

While many are cut to a slight crop (which doesn’t nec­es­sar­ily mean you have to flash flesh, as the trend also works with a cami or white tee un­der­neath) or de­signed to fit your form, there are equal num­bers with longer lines and softer, slouch­ier forms.

The re­laxed, cardi­gan style from Scan­di­na­vian brand Ges­tuz is an ef­fort­less way to add a lit­tle luxe to your look, while Lonely has gone with a pointelle fin­ish and a dark gold hue shot with metal­lic sparkle.

RUBY has paired theirs with another big trend – fluted sleeves – or for a pretty and more lit­eral take on the clas­sic bal­le­rina top, we’re lov­ing Cot­ton On’s ver­sion.
