The Reformation Top I Bought the Minute It Restocked

As I've stated before, I avidly keep up with Reformation's new arrivals on a weekly basis. It's one of the rare brands that frequently sells out of a number of its new pieces in record time, so if you want to get the best stuff, you have to stalk. That said, I do regrettably miss out on popular pieces (sadly, I can't buy them all), only to find myself signing up for the waiting list and impatiently awaiting the restock emails.

Such was the case just a few days ago when the lace-up corset top that seemingly every fashion girl has had their eye on restocked after quickly selling out upon its initial release. I purchased it without thinking twice, and sure enough, I checked the top less than an hour later, and it was completely sold out yet again.

So what makes this particular "Clayten" top so special? For starters, it features a cool menswear-inspired tweed print that contrasts perfectly with the feminine sweetheart neckline. Additionally, it cinches at the waist, which makes it ultra-flattering, and it zips up the back so that you don't actually have to tie it up every time you put it on (the 18th century ended a long time ago, after all).

But perhaps the best thing about this top is its versatility. I plan on wearing it layered over a tee for day or on its own under a blazer or leather jacket for nights out. And it's the perfect match for all of my high-waisted jeans, trousers, shorts, and skirt, without being too cropped. Hopefully, this ultra-popular top will return (perhaps even in new fabrics), but in the meantime, it's still available in black!
