Silky Vintage Top

WA512
$88.00

This true one-off was inspired by a vintage sample we stumbled across in Paris. Pretty ditsy florals and sweet back buttons give it a brilliant Boden twist.

    Versatile top that I can wear to work or out. Comfortable and light weight. I can wear it with jeans or a nice work skirt. Very flattering shape and the green is a lovely color. The only real con is you have to iron it while still damp (though it is machine washable on gentle).

      I got this in the pink / yellow print. I love the print and colors, but the top was huge. I'm 5' 8", 122, 34B and the size 6 was huge. I will re-order in the size 4.

        I love this top, but it is big on bottom. I wish it were tapered more, but it will be fine under cardigans.

          This blouse fits well, and has a great shape. I am keeping the one I ordered, and will keep a lookout for it, if it ever pops up in more neutral colors.

          I was surprised by the front slits at the hem- they are visible in the pictures, but just barely. They are more noticeable in person.

          I do wish the back buttons were in a different fabric than the shirt- They don't stand out enough to be a design element, but they're not really needed for function.

            This top is so flattering and I love the vintage inspired yet modern prints - I bought in both Brown Riviera and loved it so much that I bought the green floral print as well - and may not be done yet! Covers enough so it's appropriate for work, yet fun enough that I also plan to take on vacation. I agree with other reviewers that the Riviera print is a little more muted than online, but didn't detract at all for me. It is a little boxy in fit, but nothing a nip at the tailor or trying a size down can't fix - completely worth trying.

                Love the vintage appeal of this top. The fabric is soft and silky (very comfortable on hot days) and the print and colors (I got the green floral) are vibrant and pretty. Love the extra detail of the button-up back.

                I'm 5'4, 115lb, 34DD and the 4 fits well. It's (intentionally) slightly boxy but not shapeless. I've been pairing it with capris and pencil skirts.

                Hoping to snag the Riveria print next!

                  This top is great and the print (Riviera) is more muted than it looks in the photograph. I love it and wear it at work and on weekends.

                    I love that Boden is adding vintage prints to some of their summer tops. I already have the vintage sun top in pink. I get tons of compliments when I wear it, so I decided to get this vintage top in both the blue floral and the green floral. I am super impressed with the details that go into this top. I love the buttons that go down the entire back, and the length is just perfect. I also think the cuts in the front hem are a nice nod to the vintage looks from the 60s. I don't agree with some of the other reviews that it's too boxy. I ordered my usual size 8 and it's just fine. I have a larger chest (36C) but there's no gaping or anything like that around the buttons down the back. The fabric is so lovely, and I plan on utilizing these tops throughout the year, wearing them under some of my Boden jackets in the winter. I hope that the Vintage patterns continue!
