the style post | zara dupe

top - primark | shorts - asos | boots RI via asos

how lovely is this top? i got it quite a few months ago but still love it as much as i did then. i can't believe quite how similar it is to the zara combination jacquard top (here) but whereas the zara one costs £39.99 (currently on sale for £29.99), mine from pirmark only cost £12!

the material itself feels really sturdy and expensive - it isn't made of just bog standard cotton but rather an almost crepe-y material - not the best description at all but hey-ho!. the jewels are also really well attached - i've put this top through the washer and dryer several times and not one has fallen off yet which is pretty damn amazing for primark isn't it. the fit is also quite slouchy, i got it in a size 10 and it isn't figure hugging at all so looks lovely tucked into shorts and skirts. i decided to leave it untucked and more casual as i just wore this outfit to work at the weekend.

standard black shorts - the cost-per-wear of these ones are crazy, i wear them at least 2 times a week as they are casual enough to wear every day but can also be dressed up as you like. i used to wear them with two pairs of tights but now wear them with only one so the pom-pom detail is even more noticeable.

hope you like!
