Tip Top



A recent internet BuzzFeed listicle had 13 million views – the subject, 21 pictures to change your life! So here is our February listicle of our top tops to change yours. Collecting new tops immediately January is over is always high on the shopping list. There are new fresh shapes and colours as some of our over-worn pieces from last year won’t make it for another season.

Sweet Shop Colours: bright and pale pink, aqua and strong blues fulfill our dream of sunshiny days ahead, in a variety of tops.

Breton Stripes: in the form of a cotton t-shirt, a cotton tunic a wool striped jumper and a fine wool ribbed figure-hugging sweater. All perfect for right now.

Trendy Spots: we love to buy into a key trend and big spots are spot on, our sweater is in black and white and just £75. Fun for all.

Roll Neck Jumper in Cotton: I love this piece, it comes in midnight navy or Winser blue, and is my top piece to wear, NOW.

Cotton Poplin Stretch Shirts: nice to have some new box fresh shirts – styling tip: do up the top button but leave the others undone sometimes. Wear tucked in or out loose. Team with jeans and jackets. One of the shirts has nice gold buttons and pockets, so quite chic. Best is they are now in blue and midnight too.

Cotton and Cashmere Knits: yarn weight and soft feel is as important as the colour or styling and this particular mix has a lovely handle and is cool and warm at the same time, sounds perfect. There are a variety of styles of cardigans and sweaters in this lovely fabric in lots of colours too.

Ribbing: part of the 70s revival, or just because we love the fit of a good ribbed piece? This vest, roll neck sweater and a cardigan are all super sexy and very “sweater girl”

Fashion Forward: fashion is in love with sportswear and we love this sporty hooded top and sweater in a mix of cotton and cashmere with silk trims, this is one irresistible combo. Soft grey or black.
