A wardrobe staple to take you from daytime to dinner out….

Outfit: Adidas trainers, Cos jeans, Mint Velvet top

Most of my wardrobe is made up of staples with a few other bits and bobs added in each season. Cream is a neutral colour that I can wear without it draining the life out of me and I’m always on the look out for a versatile cream top. Throw in some lace too and it’s got my name written all over it. Stripes, sequins, neon, navy, cashmere and denim have also been known to do it for me on occasion!

I first saw this Ivory lace top Mint Velvet back at the end of the summer but at £79 it was more than I had in mind to pay. And then in John Lewis last week I came across it in the sale, reduced to £55. I had a good think about it and came to the conclusion that it was worth the investment. It’s slightly longer than some tops I have which means that it offers a bit more bottom coverage (always useful) and although I like a white shirt, on occasion I feel much more comfortable in something like this – it’s just a little less trussed up and formal. 


I would offer some alternatives but we’re on holiday in Wales this week, without wi-fi, so I’m keeping it brief. Sorry!

    Hi Beth, is this top generously sized? Tempted to order the black version and wondered whether the sizing was accurate.Louisa x
