Romance might be lacking in our lives right now, but there’s no shortage of it in our wardrobes, thanks to the romantic top trend currently sweeping the nation (read: our Instagram feeds) right now.
The formula goes something like this:
- Square neck, generally
- Puff-sleeve (the more 80s energy, the better)
- Cropped, always
We’ve snooped around, and pulled out our three favourites. Here’s to hoping Bank Holiday 2.0 is another scorcher.
1. The peasant top
A great white top is to summer what a cosy jumper is to winter – non-negotiable. We love this puff-sleeve peasant top so much, we’re even considering giving up red wine while wearing it.
2. A short romance
Last summer was all about the bardot top. SS19 has other plans, and they don’t involve getting our shoulders burnt (🙌) Case in point, this handy-for-holidays crop top that we’re pairing with high-waisted jeans in the UK and denim cut-offs when we fly out to Barbados (*cough* Tenerife)
3. The summer hero
Meet our cover star, the square neck, puff-sleeve, crop top ticking every trend box this summer. We plan on wearing it pretty much everywhere for the forseeable.
