looseish longish tops for wearing with skinny jeans?
anyone seen anything nice? I have lost some weight and need a few more tops - casual ones for toddler group/work, and something with a bit o'glitter for the pub. Not tunics though. And easily available from the High Street, as I've got a whole child-free day for shopping on Monday.
Hello. I have that jumper and it covers my bum and I'm 5'10" with a long back. I love it! Am currently 3 weeks post c-section and living in leggings while my scar heals and this jumper makes me feel normal again when I wear it.
I just got 5 of these in different colours from Zara, I love them! I've been wearing them with a close-fitting long sleeve top underneath, a big scarf, skinnies and boots. They're loose, but not so loose that you look shapeless iyswim? I'm 6 feet tall and they just come to the bottom of my saggy bum!
I have just sent that Boden top back! Very odd shape and not very long (I'm 5ft 4in). This one (http://www.boden.co.uk/en-GB/Womens-Knitwear/Jumpers/WK768-CIN/Womens-Cinnamon-Melange-Stripe-Stripy-Jumper.html#http://www.boden.co.uk/en-GB/Womens-Knitwear/Jumpers/WK768/Womens-Stripy-Jumper.html) is good though.
I've also got the top that accessorizequeen linked to. It's lovely, nice and drapey, and the sleeves are a decent length - I hate it when full length sleeves look like they've fallen out with your wrists . I would have bought other colours (I have it in the blue) but none of them would flatter me. Probably a good thing!
Sorry, not sure what happened to the Boden jumper link! It's lovely and soft, flattering in a not clingy but still makes you look slim kind of way, and washes really well. I've just ordered one in another colour, which is not me at all!
