I've been trawling the shops with no inspiration, so I thought I'd ask you! smile

I want to wear a fitted, classic shades-of-brown tweed jacket with jeans and mid-brown heels. All pretty classic and somewhere between casual and thought-about.

So what top? Is a shirt too much detail on top? I'm pretty busty so don't want to add yet more acreage to my bust area! grin A T-shirt would look wrong too. I thikn I need something without too much detail but not too boringly plain either. If you can think of anything, I'd be really appreciative! Thank you! flowers

maybe this?

InNeedOfSense Thu 09-May-13 17:12:28

Thanks. Hmmm, maybe. It looks a bit boxy / shapeless though.

MrsLettuce Thu 09-May-13 17:14:05

Heehee, yes! That's because I thought I was linking to this more or less detail free shirt

this is lovely

Oooh MrsL, that second one is nice.

Noddy, I was looking at those lace cut-out tops (see I know all the technical lingo) wink and was wondering if that would work with a tweed jacket.

I think a real lace one in the style of that Zara one would be gorgeous, but the idea of wearing a plastic t-shirt isn't doing it for me!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 09-May-13 18:32:30

This sort of shape maybe?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 09-May-13 18:33:19

Or this?

InNeedOfSense Thu 09-May-13 19:10:41

I like the paisley burn out one. Thank you! smile

noddyholder Thu 09-May-13 19:57:52

Its not plastic!

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Thu 09-May-13 20:12:59

Sorry, Noddy - it said faux leather, which usually means plastic. smile

noddyholder Thu 09-May-13 20:13:52

grin Its actually softish I saw another one they had more a vest shape but not on teh website

Such a pity it's not a nicer fabric (DAMN you ployester) because it's lovely. I had an ancient 1930s silk and lace top from Portabello Road that I wore until it literally fell to pieces, and have never been able to replace. sad
