Black top - is it really too much to ask?!

I'm looking for stylish black tops for work.

Not skin tight
Not cropped
Not sleeveless
Not sheer
Not polyester
Not tie neck

I'm a size 10/12 and busty so prefer not button up front but I do like silk, fine knits, slash or v neck and something that I can tuck into skirts/trousers.

Why can't I find anything???

Try H&M, they have so many different things, I always think it's the best place when there seems to be "nothing" like what you want around in the shops.

For Busty try [ pepperberry]] or Boden

happy I'm so fed up with H&M - acres and acres of unironed polyester. I have found the occasional gem but the pickings seem slim these days

bluesea I like the shape of done if the Boden tops but £69 for 100% viscose makes me angry

Might try one of the silk mix though and see how I get on.

I have always found this kind of thing in Gap, although less of the slashed neck. I'll see if I can find.....

gap black tops?

I find the quality of Boden really good. I have work tops that I have worn for years, they still look great.

ProjectPerfect Yes, I know what you mean. Psych yourself up and go in for a rummage if nowhere else comes up with what you want.

Good luck!
