Let’s be honest, I’m typically not a fan of drape tops, mostly because I didn’t think they were flattering on me. But for some reason, this specific drape top by Bobi drew my attention. Maybe it’s the pretty purple-ish color or the high-low top effect (my favorite kind of shirt). Not sure, but something made me want to buy and try it out. After wearing it, I don’t know what my gripe against these kind of shirts was all about because I want to buy even MORE now!
I love that a drape top is usually made of light and fluid fabric so it’s SUPER comfortable! The draping also makes a blouse or dress look very classy and elegant. A drape top is also versatile – wear it with slacks or trousers for work, or pair it with a blazer for dinner or a girls night out. For me, I kept it simple and casual with my favorite BLANKNYC faux leather jacket and these Halogen studded flats. This combo was worn as a casual date night outfit with the boo, but I could totally see it working for Valentine’s Day too (yep, I just rhymed. Move over, Jay-Z).
I must be having terrible luck with my post timing lately but this shirt in purple is almost sold out (which also happened in the last post). Maybe you can try your luck in the black color! If you’re just completely out of luck, don’t worry, I did a lot of research and found several similar drape tops AND dresses that I think you’ll like! Check out the options below!
