The Goods: A $60 Top for the Aspiring Chloé Girl
We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one stand-out steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: an ASOS top to satisfy your Chloé dreams.
Most designers have a specific woman they envision dressing. For example, Oscar de la Renta thinks of a lady-who-lunches (who might also dye her hair pink). Stefano and Domenico imagine Sophia Loren. Alex Wang calls up the Trainas, and Donatella Versace probably just asks herself what she would want to wear. Here’s the game: choose which girl you’d like to be in order to pin down which designer speaks to your style personality.
When we play, the Chanel DJ/model/actress/artist who borrows books (and couture) from Uncle Karl is always at the top of the list, but another label Lagerfeld fronted in the ’60s regularly makes the cut, too.
Chloé might be a bohemian Jane Birkin type — with a tawny, peach complexion and impossibly shiny brushed-out waves — but she’s protesting wars and stringing daisy chains in $4,000 peasant blouses. This ASOS Shell Top With Exaggerated Ruffles has the the right feel and price for the up-and-coming Chloé. Style it with wide-legged jeans to stay true to the archetype, or go with your own vibe and pair it with whatever you want. In this particular game, you win no matter what you choose.
