It’s not often that a stylish top fits most body types, however the Breeze Top in Blue Marl from Aspen & Pine does just that. Made of a viscose and polyester blend, this top features long sleeves, a kangaroo pouch, a cowl neckline, and a loose hip-line bottom hem.
The product photos illustrate the Breeze Top on a size small model. To show the diversity of this piece, a size XL tester was used. The tester has an hour glass shape with a bust of 46.6 inches. After careful consideration, the tester indicated that most body styles would feel great in this top. Pear and spoon body shapes are encouraged to wear a longer undershirt that covers your tummy and hips as desired due to a lifting of the hemline when arms are raised above the shoulders. Diamond body shapes may not feel comfortable in this top. It is designed to fit very loose on the hips and waist.
The tester received many compliments on the shirt when out. The beautiful hue, amazingly soft feel, and light weight flow of the top made her feel wonderful. Because of the delicate nature of the top, here are a few tips to keep this piece looking and feeling great.
- Wear as a top layer over a tank or fitted t-shirt. The fabric is sheer on this piece. Most will want to wear a top that provides a little more coverage. However, if you are daring and have the perfect fashion bra, go for it!
- Wash the top every time you wear it. Because the fabric is a loose weave, wearing the top for extended periods of time will cause it to stretch and lose shape. No need to worry though. A quick hand wash and line dry will allow the top to regain its cute form. Aspen & Pine recommends a delicate wash if hand washing isn’t for you. Line dry will work but lying flat to dry is best, and never use the dryer.
- Watch the sharp edges of jewelry or rough surfaces. This is a delicate weave. It’s the delicate nature of the weave that makes this piece so beautiful. Keep it beautiful with a little caution. Avoid jewelry with sharp edges or features that will snag on the fine threads. Also, watch for rough surfaces like wood or stone that may snag.
Wear this top around town for easy errands, on a walk in the evening, or dress it up with sharp slacks or a skirt. This top would be a flexible piece to compliment your wardrobe and give you options for business casual events, brunches, or happy hours. Because the top is designed in a way that makes it flexible for so many body styles, it lends itself to many uses and combinations.
Available in blue and black marl, the Breeze Top from Aspen & Pine is a great addition to your wardrobe. Take care of it well and you’ll get several seasons of use.
