City Pulse

By Yasmin Jorge

Similar to the styles worn by fashionable celebrities, beauty writers, and more, Gianetta tops are affordable luxuries that are versatile and flattering. Glamazons won’t bust their wallets either on pricey dry cleaning – so wear your washable Gianettas worry-free and buy extras for your wardrobes.

This editor was lucky enough to receive the Gianetta draped faux wrap top from the L.A. showroom. Here’s my feedback, straight from the (clothes) horse’s mouth: The fabric is very soft and comfortable, a combination of rayon/polyester/spandex for the right amount of fit (on the sleeves and shoulders) and draping (dramatically in the front and falls smoothly on the back). The crossover panels along the inset V-neck add an elegance to the blouse; while the contrast of knitted sleeves and back with the satiny front brings texture and a touch of warmth.

The Gianetta draped faux wrap top is an essential for fashionistas this season. Available colors include ginger wine, navy, black and ivory – hues that compliment all skin tones. And depending on your mood, the blouse can be easily dressed up or down for an overall sexy chic look. For example, it works well with both jeans and dress slacks; skirts and tall booths; under blazers; and with delicate vs. chunky jewelry. You’ll always be stylish, so be adventurous too.
