With long blousy sleeves featuring a long slit, this blouse a prefect New Year’s Eve party top. The deep concentric diamonds on side give the top a fun texture and bring visual interest to the waist shaping. Beautiful and flattering, this top could just as easily been seen on Zelda Fitzgerald as on this winter’s party goer. The deep neck adds a modern element to the timeless quality of the shoulders that continue to be shaped even after the yoke is complete.
