For a girl who loves wearing dresses, I sure do have a lot of tops… which is fine, since I can wear them with my favorite skirts, and still feel completely feminine and girlie! I have a few fave designers who specialize in offering the cutest tops with a distinctly retro feel, and near the top of my list is Nick & Mo. A quick peek at this list will illustrate why! Here are 7 fab retro tops by Nick & Mo.
1. Fall Flowers Cardigan
Price: $72.99 at modcloth.com
Celebrate fall all year long with this gorgeous heavy-weight cream cardigan. Across the shoulders and bust dance rust-colored wreaths of leaves, ideal for adding a touch of autumn finery to dark-wash skinny jeans and calf-skimming frocks.
2. Desert Sunrise Top
Price: $30.00 at modcloth.com
Finely knit is the softest of blacks and browns, with a ruffle detail and five brass buttons on the bodice (and four on each cuff), this sweater is ideal for pairing with an a-line skirt and boots, or with skinny jeans and flats. The colors are neutral enough to wear with almost any color, but I think it would look gorgeous with a rusty red or deep yellow.
3. Call It a Char-truce Shirt
Price: $62.99 at modcloth.com
Looking for a modern interpretation of a classic poet’s shirt? This would certainly work, done in sheer chartreuse with a subtle black pattern. Note the ruched cuffs and the gorgeous, unique neckline, and a long row of tiny brass buttons down the front. Pair with a black skirt or shorts and ankle boots or flats, and a pair of chandelier earrings to match.
