Boxy Tops

With summer flashing its megawatt smile of sunshine the last thing you want to feel between you and that welcome breeze is something clingy or a tad too snug.  If you are a fan of knitwear with minimal shaping and a comfortable fit say hello to this season’s most wearable trend– the boxy top.  Oversized in proportion, this is a style that we haven’t seen since the eighties, and it brings a relaxed vibe that drifts over summer’s fashion parade in the most refreshing way.
