Featured Garment: Bali Top

Featured Garment: Bali Top

Published by Amanda on 28th Jun 2015

For the next little while, we’ll be blogging about some of our favourite garments. The styles chosen will be the most versatile Ureshii options, including tops, bottoms, and dresses. Many of them will be excellent candidates for your capsule wardrobe :)

This week, it’s the Bali Top.

The Bali is a single layer racerback tank with a mostly modest cowl neckline. It has a relaxed fit, simple rolled hem finishing, and a single seam up the centre back. It suits most body types and has a very flexible fit – perfect for gals whose weight or shape fluctuate.

Travel-wise, It’s very lightweight and comfortable, and it takes up zero space in your drawer or suitcase. It washes up beautifully and dries quickly, especially in the linen and merino options.

It’s a great summer staple for the beach or pool – throw it on over your swim top, add a skirt, and you’re set. For those of you who like to show off your shoulders, it’s also an excellent date night option ;)

Because it’s a racerback, regular bra straps will show if you’re wearing it on its own. If you’re not okay with that, the Bali offers good coverage of most strapless and convertible bras. In these photos, Emily is using an H-shaped bra strap clip to hide her regular straps.

The easier option is to layer it under a Cardigan or Shrug, which instantly takes it from casual to dressy. It’s a smart step up from a regular tank:

It also fits into an office/work wardrobe very well. We like pairing it with a matching Cardigan for a polished look.

So if you’re building a capsule wardrobe on a budget, simplifying your closet, or packing for travel, the Bali Top is an excellent choice. Or maybe you’re a “one in every colour” girl? It’s a versatile top in a colour and length that’s just right for you, done up in quality fabrics for an outstanding price ;)
