I don't remember too many details about chemistry, but I do know that when you have an equation, you have to balance it. I'm no Marie Curie, but here's a theory: the same rule applies to fashion. Boxy minimalistic shirt and ripped jeans. Sleek boots, messy pony. You get the picture. This COS top is a great piece for winter. It's a fresh departure from the shapeless knits that I love (but after wearing them for the seemingly endless last few weeks of winter it was time for a change of pace). This top is the one crazy purchase I made in Italy and now just a few months later, they've opened up a US store that just so happens to be right around the corner from Nylon. Pray for me and my wallet.
