If you have been a reader for a while you will know that I like to get great cost per wear from a capsule wardrobe. So that means having versatile pieces that will work for the office (if you have one) and for the weekend. A top that can do work, weekend and an evening out is a brilliant buy and I think this one from Hobbs fits the bill.
What makes it so versatile? Firstly, the variety of colour that you can add to it. Secondly, it will sit neatly under a suit jacket, cardigan or casual jacket just as well as it will worn alone. Thirdly, because it is silk it will do even the smartest occasion but it’s still reasonably easy care if you have a hand wash programme on your washing machine. And finally, it’s a pretty flattering shape for most body shapes.
I’ve picked out each of the colours in the top and created an outfit around each colour. (Tip – this is a great way to come up with a colour scheme for a capsule wardrobe)

At £89 it’s a mid range price for a top but as you can see it will more than justify it’s place in a capsule wardrobe.
