The Pretty Top That French Girls Always Instagram

Hilary George-Parkin

My new top obsession: While I might not usually opt for necklines that dip below the sternum, nor garments secured by a flimsy bit of string, I can't shake the feeling that I need a tie-front top in my life right now. Maybe it's the weather, or maybe it's the fact that every painfully chic Parisian I follow on Instagram seems to own at least one of them (usually the Bianca by Insta-famous Aussie brand Réalisation, which comes in eight different prints and colours).

Skimpy as the style may be—and some versions are definitely more bra-prohibitive than others—the sleeves balance out the extra décolletage, and with the addition of high-waisted jeans (or, yes, jorts), the flash of midriff is nothing if not seasonally appropriate.
