We all know the Bardot top was THE look of the summer, and thankfully it’s not going to disappear as we change into the autumn season, so be quick to enter the competition to win this metallic off-the-shoulder design from Mandi Candi.
Bare shoulders are sexy without being too revealing, and we hailed it as THE erogenous zone for spring summer in 2016. Cut-out shapes and off-the-shoulder detailing all offered subtle peeks of the shoulder and they were offset by a mix of structured fabrics, flowing materials and denim too.
For Autumn/Winter this gets a little more sophisticated, Opening Ceremony paired their off-the-shoulder top tucked into dark trousers for a look that’s perfect for the office.
But there’s nothing stopping you keeping it fun and flirty, especially with this metallic look.
Long gone is the ode to the seventies we’ve seen in recent seasons, AW16 is all about the eighties and the metallic trend is the perfect way to channel this.
Metallics lit up the catwalk for everyone from Burberry to Preen in a way that would attract every magpie. While the head-to-toe metallic outfits seen at Maven, Zimmerman, and Public School will certainly make a statement, a metallic top, handbag or shoe might be the best option to dip your toe in the trend and get you started with the look.
Wear this top like the model with your favourite white jeans to make the most of the last of summer, then pair it with a pair of leather black skinny trousers as the weather gets cold and dull. Keep wearing this top throughout winter and layer over a simple black polo neck jumper or tuck it into a high-waisted pencil skirt for a sultry look in the evening.
This is a piece that you’ll wear all season long.
The top is available to buy now from Mandi Candi £22
