Another day, another fun Gwynnie Bee find! I'm not very familiar with Evans, as I have never bought anything from their site yet (though there is always plenty I want!). A previous GB try-on with Evans featured a top that didn't work too well for me. I was so excited when I put this top on though, because it is such a gem!
I'm wearing this top in a 22/24. It is a little fitted in the hips with its banded bottom, which works well for this particular style. The dolman sleeve detail isn't too big or baggy, and the fabric hangs in such a way that it is fitted in all the right places. Speaking of the fabric, it is really soft and stretchy which lends a comfort and ease of wear with this top. I loved it as soon as I put it on my body! The sleeves are three-quarter length with a more relaxed fit and slits along the outer portion of the sleeve. I know a lot of people don't like "cold-shoulder" styles or shy away from them, but I really like them. I own a few Kiyonna pieces with the same detail. The cold-shoulder aspect gives coverage to arms you may want to keep under wraps, but shows some skin and keeps you cool in warmer months. It is a great option if you want to wear sleeves, but don't want to wear sleeves, at the same time. lol
In styling this top, I really wanted to add pops of color and give the outfit a spring-like flair. I tried on my new red and pink bib necklace I picked up on clearance at Charming Charlie a couple weeks ago. It looked so fun paired with the leopard! A pair of pink wedges later and I was strutting around in the sunshine. The top looks great dressed up, but could just as easily go with shorts, capris, pencil skirts, or tucked into a full skirt. Because the banded bottom is great for changing proportions of a top, it would even pair well with a maxi skirt.
