Crepe Slash Neck Top available up to size UK24


Poppy Red Crepe Slash Neck (Bardot Style) Top from M&S


Bardot Style Crepe Slash Neck Top from the M&S Collection at Marks & Spencer

Poppy Red Crepe Slash Neck Top – £18 – Available from size UK8 – UK24

I happened upon this little crepe top and was delighted to not only score with a new season AW15 colour (poppy red) and material (crepe) but also managed to be one of the lucky few and nab these wonderful colour match crepe trousers as well.

M&S do design and quality so well but one thing they neglect is to tag garments (on their website) that either colour match or co-ordinate.  They do make suggestions as to products that you may like but not always do they showcase complete colour looks.

To be honest I found the trousers first of all and then found the top.  Getting a complete look all in the same colour shade is rare but when it does happen it makes for a more sophisticated look….and certainly looks all the more expensive too!

I am 5’9″ tall and I am wearing the top in size UK18.  The sizing is perfect and I particularly love the longer back length which makes this top ideal for not only wearing out over the waistband of a pair of trousers but also with skirts.  As the material is crepe and therefore fine in texture this top will also sit well tucked inside waistbands.  I call it my Bardot Style Top.

Crepe is going to be everywhere this new season and the new Poppy Red shade is just a twist on a colour that never goes out of fashion.  I think this little top is a find and is yet another of my easy care easy wear favourites.  The top can be machine washed and tumble dried but I have found that it dries quite quickly (after a spin in the washing machine) hung up on a clothes airer.

Watch out over the coming weeks for more crepe clothing items from M&S and keep an eye on the trousers.  These gems are a must to come back into stock, especially in the lead up to the Christmas season.
