Last week, in my Trends on a Budget post, I said I had another great pick from SheIn to share, and here it is. Honestly, if you don’t love this top, we can’t be friends (JK – I know these details aren’t for everyone), because it has everything I love: gingham (which you know I ADORE from this post and this post, shared during the last few months), bows, and peplum. Together, they make for an adorable top that looks amazing with jeans, vegan-leather leggings, and even a cute pair of cut-off shorts.
Aside from the visual features that I love in this top, I am most happy about the fact that it features a slightly longer peplum. Short peplum tops are kind of a pet peeve for me (the make my short torso look even shorter), but finding longer ones has been a struggle. This one perfect length-wise, though it does run a tiny bigger overall (I am wearing a Small, for reference and I wish I had ordered an X-Small, but oh well).
If you’re wondering about wearing an open-back top like this with a bra, the middle bow ties around the same place your bra sits, so I haven’t had an issue, but you can also easily pair it with a simple black tank top if you prefer to be a bit more modest. I haven’t done so yet, mainly because it’s been pretty warm on the days I’ve worn the top so far.
The top comes in black, navy, and red, all with black bow ties in the back. I chose black because I have several navy gingham pieces and I don’t tend to wear a lot of red (though I really should start). For this look, I paired it with white denim (another option here), my favourite Sam Edelman Patti sandals, and Rebecca Minkoff Love Crossbody bag I’ve also paired it with my favourite vegan-leather leggings and black flats for a bit of a dressier look.
This top is so lovely and such a great deal, that I just had to have it. I’ve mentioned before that shipping with SheIn can take a while, but it was worth the wait for this top, especially since I haven’t found anything similar anywhere else. The quality is fantastic and the under $30 price tag (CAD – it’s under $20 USD) is far too tempting. Honestly, I can’t say enough about this gorgeous top, so I’ll just leave it at this – you need it in your life.
Enjoy the pretty things in life,
