hello all,
I am looking for a top to wear with silver sequin skirt, black opaques, black heeled shoe boots.
size14, 32E , aged 47...
would like sleeves, very plain, preferably v neck, even t-shirty would be ok.
anyone any ideas please?

Baukjen have a nice v neck , not cheap though. I am wearing a Pure. Collection slash neck long sleeve black jersey top with my black leather skirt. Lovely quality.

all ok, but am now thinking, as I'm wearing black opaques, long sleeve may be better?

Pepperberry specialise in V necked tops that might be the sort of thing you are looking for.

I got a very plain black slouchy thin jumper from uniqlo to wear with my black sequin skirt, opaques and wedges for my Christmas meal for work.

BrendaandEddie Sat 12-Dec-15 08:44:50

Like the sound of the uniqlo one. Tbh op theyre everywhere. Check new look

BrendaandEddie Sat 12-Dec-15 08:54:10

Sorry. Link please petal !

petalpower Sat 12-Dec-15 13:12:02

It's this one Brenda
Looks much nicer in real life! Got a size XL so nicely slouchy, straight-ish cut and a bargainous £24.90!

Reiss does great tops for skirts like that, I have a couple of long-sleeved black fine-knits that have lasted for years. I tend to pair them with bright or sequinned bottoms, and they never fail.

I also bought this one a few weeks ago and haven't gone more than a week without wearing it since.

BrendaandEddie Sat 12-Dec-15 17:19:50

Love. Grr only xxl around. How big are you? Uniqlo stuff can be teeny

BrendaandEddie Sat 12-Dec-15 21:09:21

oh no - lots of sizes

thats weird

you can see what she had for her dinner

tethersend Sat 12-Dec-15 21:35:40

True grin

I've got the green one, and with boobs it's nowhere near as racy.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 12-Dec-15 21:42:04

Bloody hell, Tethers - that's low cut!

Not seen irl but this looks nice.

Completely plain t shirt Size up to avoid clinginess. Not v neck though.

Really like the look of this but not v neck.

Wrap but maybe too long

everythingsgoingsouth Sat 12-Dec-15 22:16:04

y'see, it sounds like a simple want doesn't it?......but, need sleeves to balance the opaques, would like low v neck due to boobs, don't want too tight due to...... well,middle aged tum, not too long as will cover the skirt too much, or will be too long to tuck in (thinking I will do a half tuck)
but then don't want too billowy as I don't want to look like Sharon off EE ( baggy tops, short skirt, thin legs) don't want it too thin to see through, but will be in and out of pubs so don't want a jumper...

this reminds me of remus' black and white top that's more white than black !! smile smile smile

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sat 12-Dec-15 22:18:48

No, no, no. I want more black than white! grin

Super plain deep v

everythingsgoingsouth Sat 12-Dec-15 22:48:55

oh yes, sorry ,more black than white, i did actually see one on a "lady" on jeremy kyle, she was being taken off to rehab, all her family were there, very dramatic etc and I was thinking "mmm, that is just the sort of top Remus wants....."

(just like to point out ,it was on at work, not at my home)

everythingsgoingsouth Sat 12-Dec-15 22:50:35

I'm quite liking the phase eight one actually

BrendaandEddie Sun 13-Dec-15 07:09:58

Me too. In the lilac it looks way longer tho

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 13-Dec-15 12:04:49

That's me - I get all of my style ideas from Jeremy Kyle.

I've got this Pepperberry scoop back top - whilst rather poly-tastic, it has a lovely shape. I can overlook the synthetic for winter.
