Search Spotlight – Trendy Tops!

unnamed-1Every spring designers introduce their versions of trendy “novelty tops”, as I like to call them.  Any deviation from the classic shirt silhouette, which has two sleeves, a clean neckline and a clean waistline makes something novelty in my book.  For example, the striped top I’m wearing has a slightly cropped oversized tie waist.  It also has a cut out appliqué design at the neckline, which adds to the novelty of it.  The other top I’m wearing has cut out/ cold shoulders and ruffles – also novelty!  This year especially, these trendy novelty tops have dominated the fashion scene so this post is all about finding the perfect (thrifted, as always) one for you.  A lot of them have cutout shoulders and are cropped, so to flatter your body type be mindful that the cutout, cropped, or fitted area falls in a place that you don’t mind showing off.  Let’s get to it!
