Having had a good clear out of my “well worn pieces”, some of the items now missing from my wardrobe were long sleeved casual tops.
I wasn’t looking for anything too expensive as most of the winter I’m in chunky jumpers to keep warm. But I do like to layer up and a long sleeve top is the perfect base layer.
So I popped into my local H&M as I had previously bought a couple of t-shirts and cardigans from them and they have kept their shape and colour well after many a wash.
I tried on the medium size and was very impressed with the length of the top and sleeves.
I also liked the rounded neckline which sat perfectly in line with my collarbone, making these tops lie neatly under my v-neck jumpers.
The tops have a warm snug feel to them due to the make of fabric and with them being designed in a slim fit they sit comfortably on the body under a loose or fitted jumper.
Firstly, I bought the off white and charcoal grey stripe and also a grey marl top, as I thought these neutral tones would mix and match easily and I also wanted to make sure that they washed well, kept their shape and no colour fading, etc.
I was not disappointed as I have worn these tops over the past couple of months and they look as good as new and have kept me so warm throughout the winter months.
I wanted this red one but they didn’t have any mediums left, but I have found a red stripe long sleeve top at Marks & Spencers, which fits perfectly.
I’m also looking forward to the weather warming up so that I can pair these tops with my coloured jeggings and gilets for a fresh spring look.
There are about seven different colours in this collection, some with stripes and I am tempted to buy them all as they are such great ‘go to’ pieces for layering up.
I can only emphasise that these “cheap” tops look great, keep their shape well and most importantly to me, keep me warm.
They are a great purchase with the added bonus of having an affordable price tag!!
