Where do you get your thin long sleeved tops for layering with?

(65 Posts)

I need several thin long sleeved tops, turtle necks, scoopnecks, v necks for layering, in funky colours and not jsut black and white.

Any ideas where to get? Seen a couple on Joe Browns but that's it really.

Primark for cheap n' cheerful, Top Shop have done v. thin long sleeve tops in the past, also Zara (in the rock chick bit not the frumpy office bit)

New Look & M & S. Used to get bits and bobs at Tesco but find they shrink, esp. length wise.

UNIQLO- got 2 long sleeve scoop neck for £11.99- and I'm a BODEN fan- so this was a real snip and they are great.

Also got their HEATEC top in a scoop neck for £9.99 which is great too- slightly thinner but slightly smoother - great.

I went to their store but they are doing free P&P on website if you spend £40+.

I got some last year at Dorothy Perkins and am planning on picking up some more from there this year. They wash well and are very comfy and a good length and were cheap.

those m and s ones look nice.

tell me though what do you do when you do layering? I am so crap at clothes. I love the look of peoples' layered outfits but have no idea what to use to achieve it!

decide if contrasting colours or toning ones suit you.
youll need maybe a long tank or swetaer to go on top.
check you can see the under shirt otherwise no point
make sure both hadv diffo lenghts in the body toi
look at models in shops, htey always later lOAdS to show off merchandise

I get mine from White Stuff. Sometimes layer with their vests too.

MacaroonIncident Thu 22-Oct-09 18:43:21

i find their vests too low cut

alittlebitshy Thu 22-Oct-09 18:44:54

ok, cool that helps. I have taken to wearing a long vest thing under some fitted jumpers that are too small (not lost 15 mo ds weight blush) so I can do it, if not brilliantly!
