Lurex is one for the magpies and those who love vintage will always keep their eagle eye out for it. This figure flattering wrap around is a perfect addition to a casual wardrobe that needs a little 'zing'.
Wear with jeans or a straight skirt. Put a camisole on underneath for a looser fit and wrap yourself up tight if you are on the bustier side. Diane Von Furstenberg initiated that crossover dress - take this top to those timeless style heights!
