Elle's free Reiss + Garance Doré top
Have you got this month's issue of Elle yet (with the lovely Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on the cover)? Well, hurry, as the July issue is only around for one more week and you don't want to miss out on the fabulous free top that comes with the magazine.
A fashion and blogger collaboration, Reiss, the high-street (and Duchess of Cambridge) favourite, has joined forces with Parisian blogger, fashion photographer, illustrator and writer Garance Doré to produce a summer top especially for Elle.
Featuring an exclusive illustration by Garance, the soft muscle-back vest comes in four colours – white (above), blush (below), sage (bottom) and cornflower – with the design emblazoned across the chest or 'tattooed' on the hip. C'est chic, non?
Achingly cool but effortless, Elle's Reiss + Garance top sums up Parisian style perfectly. I've teamed mine with my new Uniqlo cropped chinos (top and below, £19.99) and Chie Mihara shoes and my latest vintage buy, a denim-look, A-line skirt (above). But I'll also be wearing it with this season's flared jeans, belted with a maxi skirt and summer shorts, too.
It's so versatile – and a bargain at that. With Elle only costing £3.80, it's tempting to get all four colourways!
Now, as Garance is running a competition to give away one of these tops, I thought it might be nice to do the same. So, if you'd like one (or another!), simply become a fan of my Facebook page and leave a comment under the Facebook post about this story saying which colour vest you'd like if you win. I'll pick a winner in mid-July. Thank you and good luck!
