Any nice sparkly/sequiny tops out there?

I saw someone wearing a lovely grey long sleeved sequiny top. Now I want one just like it. In grey or navy. It's the sort of thing I see everywhere when I'm not looking for it but can never find when I am. It doesn't have to be very dressy but just enough sparkle to dress up a pair of jeans for Christmas. Thanks!

Budget? The White Company have lovely sequinned jumpers but they are champagne or black:

Ooh..thanks. I like all of these. I really love the White Company one but I try to avoid black nowadays ( in 50s and sometimes find black a bit harsh on me). I like the look of the Champagne one. I like the others too.
I'll Google Warehouse too.

Mint velvet

Whistles have a few, the Annie Sparkle knit is flattering.

Colourmylife1 Wed 18-Nov-15 23:19:52

Thanks. I'll check both of those out. I never thought of Whistles.

I really like the Annie Sparkle. I will try it on to make sure it's not frumpy on me as I'm quite busty and short-waisted!

The Whistles top washes badly (really baggy cuffs and developed a hole) despite careful laundering.

Higge Thu 19-Nov-15 07:30:35

I've washed mine and had no problem.

I love the Whistles sparkle knits too. The price makes me cross but the sparkles are low key which I prefer, plus it means it's still wearable after Christmas. I wash mine on a gentle cycle in a pillow case and haven't had a problem yet.

I've seen this on a blog (dmbl40 maybe?) and it looked great. Pretty full on though!

HappyGirlNow Thu 19-Nov-15 09:26:38

I've just ordered this Zara one

BrendaandEddie Thu 19-Nov-15 10:40:16

Hm one only good for slim and flat chested. Like dmbl

BrendaandEddie Thu 19-Nov-15 10:41:16

I've got those Zara trousers

HappyGirlNow Thu 19-Nov-15 10:54:25

Ah nice!

Yes agree, I am not huge in the boob department..

lurkingabit Thu 19-Nov-15 10:59:58

I quite like this Topshop one, but it's black and does not really fit your brief. Felt compelled to share tho. Living vicariously, like hmm

HappyGirlNow Thu 19-Nov-15 11:06:07

On yes I forgot about the colour brief... blush

OnlyHereForTheCamping Thu 19-Nov-15 11:24:41

The h&m one is terrifying. It should be worn with these

lurkingabit Thu 19-Nov-15 11:47:07

grin Those boots are erm, em, quite something.

I like the HM top but jeez, not on boobs.

Higge Thu 19-Nov-15 11:54:07

The Annie sparkle looks fine on my big boobs

Colourmylife1 Thu 19-Nov-15 21:55:59

I love the Zara one but I think it might look a bit 'young' on me. Also, I live in Scorland and would get cold! I also like the Top Shop one. Life, or rather dressing, seems much harder since I tried to eliminate black.
I think I will find the Whistles one to try on to make sure it's not frumpy on me. Thanks so much everyone for taking the time!
