Topshop Black Bardot Cold Shoulder Frill Top


Topshop Bardot Cold Shoulder Frill Top Outfit

I’ve been seeing a lot of cold shoulder and off the shoulder tops lately and I was a little late to jump on the bandwagon as I wasn’t sure if they suited me. I saw this gorgeous Topshop Bardot Cold Shoulder Frill Top and thought I would give it a go. I took it in a size UK 8 and it fits really well as it’s a stiffer material, so I needed it to fit in the chest region. I actually really love these cold shoulder tops now, not just because they look really feminine and pretty, but because they have a tank top appearance, while the extra frill on the side covers my upper arms which I’m always conscious of.

I decided to pair this Bardot Cold Shoulder Top with my J Brand Maria Jeans in Dove, my Christian Louboutin Pigalle Shoes, and my new Celine Nano Luggage in Dune. I decided to add my Burberry Thomas Bear Charm to the Celine though as I thought it gave it a little bit of extra colour. Isn’t it cute? I think if I didn’t opt for the bear, the look would be quite muted and dull with the monochrome and neutral shades, so it really does give it a bit of vibrancy. What do you think of the outfit? Do you like it? And this was the first day wearing my new Celine bag too, so this outfit holds a little special place in my heart now. Comment and let me know, plus shop the outfit pieces just below!

    Lorna, this black off the shoulder shirt looks awesome on you… I really like it… I could even wear it at it has the extra straps… I too would adore the frill over the sleeve covering my upper arms… and the bear looks adorable hanging on your purse, it’s sweet xox

    • September 19, 2016 / 11:13 am

      Thank you so much! It is really nice with the frills on the shoulder!

    Although the bear is cute, and I like the little dab of bright colour that the addition of it brings, I’m not sure I can agree with you that the look would be in any way muted or dull without it. The black top is very pretty and those grey jeans always look look wonderful – so neither item needs any help as they make a very eye catching combination together. πŸ™‚

    You’ve chosen a wonderful location for this outfit too. I like how your outfit and your bag look against those amazing walls. It’s a simple but highly effective colour palette. πŸ™‚

    • September 19, 2016 / 11:16 am

      Oh really? That’s actually interesting that you think that πŸ™‚ From my point of view, if the colours are just neutral, there’s not actual pop from the outfit. I know what you mean about the background and location adding colour, but when you’re walking around and not in that current location, it could be muted and not very eye catching, if that makes sense? So glad you like it πŸ˜€

      • September 19, 2016 / 8:51 pm

        Oh yes, I think a black and grey combination works fine – at least to my eyes… and everything comes down to personal tastes in the end doesn’t it? πŸ™‚ But I understand your point too and what you’ve done here works 100%. πŸ™‚

        • September 19, 2016 / 11:35 pm

          I’m glad you liked it so much! I’ll be sure to wear more looks like this actually as I really enjoy them!

    Your celine bag is gorgeous and I love the little Burberry bear charm on it! πŸ™‚ I like your top too – I can’t wear strapless bras but the straps on this would hide a bra nicely while still getting the trendy look of the top πŸ™‚

    Hope you’ve had a great weekend πŸ™‚ If you want to stop by my blog, I’ve got two giveaways on at the moment!

    This outfit is so pretty Lorna, and you look absolutely lovely! The cold shoulder top is so feminine and girly, and it really is becoming on you. I love the way you styled the look, and the Celine bag looks very classy! The burgundy bear charm is a really sweet touch, and the added colour makes the whole outfit stand out even more!

    Lots of love Saba xx

      Lol! Well I did only get chance to wear this one once so far, but at least we are prepared for next year though right?

  12. September 22, 2016 / 2:02 pm

    Such a stunning outfit! I love how the red soles add a bit of colour to this look. In addition, that bear attached to the bag is adorable. It was a lovely idea to introduce this little cuties, it makes the whole outfit more fun and fashion forward. As they say, everything is in the details, right?

    • September 22, 2016 / 2:06 pm

      Thank you so much! I’m really happy you like the outfit and the little details too, it’s great you noticed!

    Love the top, I think I featured it on one of my wish lists before, it’s got such nice details. I just can’t get over your bag it’s stunning!
