You know that Topshop dress everyone's been wearing on Instagram? You know the one. It's called the Austin dress. Long, flowing, flattering. Floor-length. Gathered waist. Cut-out, triangular-shape back. Two quite cheeky slits in the skirt. Comes in different patterns.
This is it. You've probably seen it before. Maybe you even own it.
You see it here in its natural habitat: by the seaside, on a summer day, glistening in the sun.[ id="Bx5KUAVlkTl"]
Here it is, in a kind-of scalloped polka dot print.
And here it is again, in a jolly, multi-coloured, artsy floral pattern.
It's gorgeous, obviously. Suits a lot of figures, swishes like a dream when you walk down the street or the beach, perfect for a wedding guest dress, or a party, or even a picnic. It's a summer staple.
Well! We have good news for any fans of the "jeans and a nice top" look. Topshop has just announced that it's releasing the Austin dress as a top. The Austin blouse is available in Topshop stores and online now and comes in at a pretty friendly £25. It's got the same structured but floaty style and comes in a similar selection of bold patterns, only it's short enough to pair with trousers, jeans or a skirt.
Here is it, in top form.
Behold: The Austin dress as a top. This one is in their "stunning starlight" design. Look at that synched-in waistline! That modest neckline! Those sleeves!
Hurry, hurry. We predict it'll sell out quickly.
