Penelope Top Brushstrokes
As you may know, we are a fan of making our favourite shapes in multiple styles here, so we thought, why not make the Penelope dress we all know and love into the perfect top as well? And from that thought, the Penelope top was born!
FEATURES: Penelope features a t-shirt length sleeve for all year round wearing! We have slightly lowered the neckline compared to the penelope dress, for a more practical fit, perfect for layers too! Two side splits at the hips work wonders to allow room to move so the comfort factor is high in this one! Basically she is the perfect mix of structured but feminine. She works so well paired with more elaborate bottoms as she is streamline and cool, and pretty much will work for all occasions. We have shaped the top through the centre back seam, so she will show off your waist without giving too much excess fabric at the back. We wear ours with sunset skirts on weekends, and pair her with Kenzie or Katie skirts for work. She is super versatile and a tried and true shape for us here at made590.
HOW TO WEAR: This fun, classic shape looks great teamed with your favourite pair of jeans or shorts for summer. She can also be worn tucked into your favourite mid or high waisted skirt, as the fabric is lovely and structured without too much bulk (and no clinginess here!). Penelope is the perfect basic staple piece, but is interesting enough in our fun prints that you can own multiple versions and no-one would know it's the same top! We love this neckline for layering, pop one of our basics underneath for colour and warmth in winter. The neckline also works well with our merino cardigans and colourful scarves. The length of this top with also lend itself to a longer length a-line skirt, or a hip skirt like our Kelly, Kenzi or Kylie. We also love her worn for work under a blazer or suit and her structure will lend itself to a day where you need to feel dressy or slightly more conservative.
FABRIC: 100% Crepe Rayon, might weight fabric without any clinginess. This is an extremely cool top to wear as it is incredibly breezy and will be perfect in humidity or very hot times of the year, but it is also perfect for layering in winter.
