As many of you can attest, there is surely no shortages of vintage inspired dresses on the market. One thing that there never seems to be enough of is vintage inspired separates. You may own a fabulous high waist pencil skirt but if you don’t have any tops to pair it with, what’s a girl to do? Well, when you finally find tops that fit you perfect…you buy them in every color! The Gia top from Pinup Girl Clothing is a must have for all retro wardrobes!
Available in size S to 2x in a variety of colors – MSRP $42USD
The Gia top is made from a high quality jersey knit with a massive amount of stretch. If you are in between sizes, you can definitely size down for a more snug all over fit. The Medium fits perfectly (measurements: 36-29-41) but I can safely wear a small as well, demonstrated with the Gia in black. By sizing down, you should know it will be more revealing in the bust area. The faux wrap keeps the cleavage under control while concealing the stomach area with the rushing and lined front. I never have the feeling there could be a wardrobe malfunction with the amazingly constructed bodice. The long sleeves are a perfect wrist length but those with a longer torso may find the Gia top on the short side if not tucked in. At 5ft 4inches tall, I find myself regularly adjusting to ensure it does not ride up while sitting.
As you can see, I love the Gia so much I purchased them in every color with exception to the white as it is known to be a bit transparent. This is the one top I wear all winter long to the office and I cannot recommend it enough to everyone. They wash incredibly well and they still look brand new after wearing them weekly during the fall & winter season last year. The jersey knit is lightweight and the material breathes incredibly well to avoid sweating or temperature fluctuations normally felt with a synthetic fibers.
The Gia is so versatile you can pair it with almost anything; pencil skirt, dress pants, cigarette pants, jeans…the list goes on! Add a cardigan with your favorite accessories to dress it up for any occasion. It’s by far my number one go-to work outfit, even on those days when you’re feeling body conscious. The side gathers are curve-loving with a forgiving drape all in one package.
When you finally find separates that you love…make sure to snatch them up in every color! The Gia is hands down a wardrobe staple for all pinup lovers, especially those looking for work appropriate attire. I am sincerely hoping PUG releases the Gia top in more colorways, especially in plum!
