Wardrobe Staples: The Draped Jersey Top

ruth crilly fashion model

Another marvellous discovery, found through trial and error: the perfect drapey jersey top. This one has three-quarter length sleeves and an elasticated waist that the fabric drapes over the top of. It looks really chic with black trousers – I’ve been wearing mine with my Maje tuxedo-stripe ones – and quite cool with shorter-length skirts. Very sport luxe! I bought my top from French Connection – it’s the Misha 3/4 Sleeve Top shown here and it comes in seven different colours. Some of them cost £15 (bright pink, bright aqua) and the black one is £24. A great price, I think, for a classic wardrobe staple.

This type of top is incredibly useful to have around. The three quarter-length sleeves show off the most slender part of the arm whilst hiding the upper portion if you’re not so keen on showing that off. They also hang nicely from the bust and hide post-dinner tummies – and a top that allows for sudden expansion in that respect is always going to be a winner!
