Around this time of year, I’ve really had it with my entire wardrobe. The pieces I was so thrilled to pull from storage way back in October are looking weary. And, even the new bits and pieces from Christmas have lost their allure. Some shopping is definitely in order to pull me from these middle-of-winter-doldrums! And, one of my favorite new pieces is this cute, long-sleeved crisscross top by Easther.
This crisscross top has such a clever neckline! It’s got the popular strappy look, but isn’t low-cut with a risqué, cleavage-baring neck like so many others I’ve seen.
It also has a nicely rounded hem. So, it can be worn untucked and still look stylish, instead of just messy.
This crisscross top is also very comfortable and super soft. The 35% cotton fabric breathes, but the inclusion of 65% polyester provides plenty of stretch. It’s lightweight enough for spring, but, because it’s long sleeved and dark, it also works for fall and winter. This is a perfect three-season piece and so easy to style. Some of my favorite looks include:
- Untucked with a denim mini and short booties for fall
- Paired with skinny jeans and suede tall boots in winter
- As a transition piece with bold black and white printed capris for spring
I chose black (surprise, surprise!), but this crisscross top is also available in a deep wine and a pretty navy blue. Retail Price: $17.99
Careful handling is essential to keep this crisscross top looking its best. Because of the polyester content, this piece cannot be ironed (a clothing steamer works well). Also, wash on cold and hang dry (it won’t wrinkle that way).
To keep the neckline looking as it should, I suggest using a lingerie bag in the washer. That way, the straps won’t be pulled and tugged by the washer’s agitation. And, never use bleach.
When ordering, pay close attention to the size chart provided, not the Amazon size chart. I found that this style fit true to size. But, depending on how you want the top to flow (looser and more relaxed, or tighter and more form-fitting) a close inspection of the detailed size chart is crucial.
Only 32 days until spring and I am so ready for the “closet changeover.” How about you?
