Crepe Slash Neck Top available up to size UK24
Poppy Red Crepe Slash Neck (Bardot Style) Top from M&S
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.

Until next time. Diane XXX
