Mix It Up a Notch: Loose Batik Top

It was actually by pure chance that I happened upon this top in my wardrobe. Whenever that happens, I just venture a guess that it used to belong to my late Mum or my sister, but often my sister wouldn’t remember having ever purchased it—even though it often actually does belong to her. Whoever it used to belong to, it’s mine now.

I love how quite unique it is. It has such a 60s cut with the box neckline, the decorative buttons adorning the chest area, puff sleeves and absolutely baggy fit. The patterns are applied to work with one another. The baggy fit is perfect for my ever-changing body size, so it’s a sustainable item in my closet. It works well with skirts, dresses and pants/shorts. A simple touch of patterns to an otherwise basic outfit. I love the cultural sentimental value too! What do you think? Which one is your favourite styling?
