The weather in Perth has been aaaamazing these last few weeks. Not too hot, not too humid, not too cold. Perfect for stepping out in a nice strappy top, jeans and sandals!
I’ve been happily testing out a few new Grana items (gifted!) and will be featuring them over the next few weeks. I’ve noticed that they are launching updated styles, where they’ve tweaked the hem lines and improved on the overall fit. I shall let you know how I go!
For this new season, Grana has released a new Silk Classic Camisole – a new style and in new Spring colours.
Their past silk camisoles have been “round-neck” styles with a racer-back, or “v-neck” styles with a v-back.
This one is more of a straight neckline across the chest and back, with a stylish, minimal drape. I think this looks much more modern and very COS.
It sits nicely on my chest; not too low. It doesn’t flare out at the bottom. It’s a loose fit, but still flattering and slimming.
It’s sweet and simple, I really like it!
I liked the style so much, I picked out the top in TWO colours, that’s saying something!
I chose Off White so I could wear mix and match it with blacks and denim and this Pink Frosting colour for something different.
Funnily, I wear the Pink one more, because the colour is super sweet, a bit different to what I usually wear and it kind of brightens my complexion?
The silk is absolutely lovely. It has a slightly “matte and velvety” feel, rather than “shiny and slippery”. And I find that it’s quite similar to my Equipment silk shirts, more so than silk tops from Zara and Topshop. Basically I think it’s really affordable for the quality.
As for sizing, I’m wearing a Size XXS and it fits perfectly. Here’s a picture of how it sits under my arms – not too low that my bra strap shows. I love the shape of the back.
Another different thing is the lining. In the past, they have used a double lining of silk – where sometimes when the weather is wrong, the lining gets a bit staticky. But they have used a different kind of lining this time. It looks like standard lining (which is slightly see-through and a bit like satin/polyester) but it is in fact, soft, flowy, drapey, feels good on your skin and it is still 100% silk.
So this top feels very light and breezy to wear.
Would I recommend to my friends?
Yes! If you’re the kind of person who would love to wear more silk in your everyday or work outfits, this classic top is perfect. Especially at this price. But if your wardrobe is overflowing with camisoles, you probably don’t need another one haha! Maybe a white one to update your look slightly?
