Do people still wear 'going out' tops? Can anyone help me find one?
Dinner and drinks with friends in a week or so, I'm struggling with what to wear. It won't be posh but will probably involve a bit of a uni-reunion vibe so there will definitely be a late night bar involved! I'd prefer to wear skinnies and pumps - but what on earth do people wear on their top nowadays?! Does the 'going out' top still exist?
I'm 5'1 and a size 10, anything with too high a neck or a sodding peplum waist makes me look terrible. I don't want to spend much more than £20-£30 as I doubt I'll wear the top often again. Does anyone have any good recommendations?
I've just been looking at Oasis and they're nice but... I think I'm struggling because of the shape of everything nowadays. I have a definite tummy, so everything with a longer back than front doesn't flatter me at all. Everything I can see seems cut for very tall, very skinny girls and just emphasizes everything I'm not keen on! <sobs quietly>
So far I've spotted these 3 - here, here and here. Though I suspect on my height I would need slightly smaller sizes to make them look ok.
Sorry just noticed question for me! I have the Zoe print top,stone military blouse,cream embroidered top, grey beaded tee - all but the first I wear with silver double tassel necklace. Loving their stuff at moment - managed to get a discount voucher too.
