I like buying tops from Suzy Shier because of their wearability. They are perfect for work and great for every day life as well. The dressy yet casual-comfy style just cannot be beat in my book.
This particular top has become one of my favourites. It is all one piece, but looks like two.
The cranberry sweater has a small amount of stretch to give it just the right amount of "give" when you move. It is also a nice weight: cozy but not too warm. The sleeves come down to just above the elbows, which makes it a warmer, winterier top without having full length sleeves that so often get in my way.
The fooler blouse underneith has held up remarkably. I was concerned that it would be permanently wrinkled and cheep-looking after a wash or two, but it has proven me wrong. It still looks crisp and new and only requires a quick iron after it has been washed.
And finally, the little belt around the waist is a cute touch that pulls the whole look together beautifully.
I always feel comfortable and confident in this top, and I love being able to wear it all day long. It goes excellently with grey or black skirts and dress pants for work, then effortlessly dresses up a pair of jeans for an evening out with friends.
I highly recommend it. And if you go now, you might just catch it on sale!
