The Chimamanda in real life #realwomenofpairess
This top is the most versatile top - flawlessly goes from zoom meetings to grocery shopping and can be partnered with anything from pencil skirts for formal rooms to leggings for days at home. The material is thick but breathable and the color is a nice way to stand out without being attention seeking. It is honestly such an easy top to wear and well designed!
The picture of this top was the reason I clicked through a Facebook ad for Pairess. I love the shoulder tucks, which add polish and style, and the v-neck which hits in a perfect spot. The blue color is bright enough to add pop to your outfit. It's a no-fuss top that is polished without trying too hard. I work in a casual to business casual work environment and have young kids, and this works perfectly for my lifestyle. I would definitely consider buying this top if it were available in other colors. At first I wasn't totally sure about the fabric -- it is more felt-like than ponte-like/stretchy, and I somehow had the impression that it was going to be the latter. But it's very soft and light. It IS synthetic so maybe not as breathable, but of course there are other tradeoffs to that, such as no wrinkles. I purchased an XS and it fits great (5'4", 32C or 34A, XS in most brands).
I have been on many virtual calls where a silk blouse has been too formal and where a t-shirt has been too casual. This top is made of thicker material and is great for when you need to look presentable during all of your calls.
This top plus the Amelia 2.0 pants make the perfect work outfit. It's a step down from a suit (and way more comfortable), but gives off very professional vibes. Perfect for meetings or any setting where you need a boost of confidence.
I bought this for my gf since she kept having to switch clothes for Zoom calls. Now she just wears this shirt from the beginning of the day because she says its comfy. She's actually heading back to the office next week and is planning on wearing it there too, a double win! A happy gf is a happy me.
Love the feel and texture of the material - very high quality, thick fabric, and of course a beautiful blue color!
