Sleeveless Floral Chiffon Top from New Look


Most of the sixties influenced looks on the high street focus on dresses and sharply cut mini skirts, but finding something to pair with those minis can be a challenge. This Flower Chiffon Bow Top from New Look offers a stylish solution that stands out among the many plain blouses and cardigans.

The sleeveless cut instantly injects some retro appeal into the silhouette, with a high neckline adding the right amount of conservative balance. It's the print that really makes this top though, with a modernist floral in a rich orange shade. Finished with a kitschy bow at the waist, the vintage inspiration is obvious but not overdone.
