Sequin top?

I want to wear this skirt for Christmas, and I need a top to go with it. Do you think a sequin t-shirt style top would work? Anyone seen any nice ones?

Or if you think the outfit will be crap, please say so!

Thanks smile

Can't see your pic, but I just bought the white Whistles sequin crop tee & it might just be the most beautiful thing I own. It's wedding dress pretty.

Really not sure th. You've already got red, and purple and animal print. Throwing sequins in there too could be overkill.

NO NO NO to sequin
too much going on

you need a plain top

Noelle told it straighter than I did. She's right - absolutely no to sequins with that skirt.

i cant imagine what you WOULD wear. Where is it from? do they have things similar colours?

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Dec-14 20:50:27

I think a plain black silk t-shirt, black opaques and black boots/shoeboots might be the only way forward tbh. Anything else would be just Too Much.

NoelleHawthorne Sun 14-Dec-14 20:51:33

agree but there is a purpley shade there

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 14-Dec-14 20:54:00

Yes but the skirt is so loud anyway that a purple top would be overkill, I think.

Thanks everyone. I just wanted to be festive blush

It's from Jaeger Boutique. I've been wearing it with a plain grey or black v neck jumper for work, but wanted to, I dunno, jazz it up?

Silk t-shirt might be the way to go.

It's more orangey than red, btw. Don't know if that's worse!

You'll be plenty festive. grin Yes to plain black silk top, if you can find one. Have a lovely time.

NotYouNaanBread you've sold me on the whistles top. Could you link to it? I wear plain colours and need something sparkly.
