This top is something of a rare gem from Monsoon, finding black separates that don’t look like dowdy workwear can be challenging at times, but this Etta top certainly comes through in the style stakes.
We can only presume that the name is a nod to Ms. James herself, as the top has a great deal of sassy fifties styling going on. In 100% silk satin, it will look every bit as good as an original fit for a starlet. Thanks to the sheer sleeves and battenburg neckline, it’s far from frump too.
It’s available from Monsoon for £55.
