So let’s be honest – this textured shawl wrap is AMAZING. The fabric is soft, without feeling flimsy – doesn’t itch or feel uncomfortable at all. The color is rich and the black linear accents and tie create an artsy and fashionable look (with minimal effort on your part – just wrap and tie!) The shawl is also really easy to wear – I’ve worn it with jeans, leggings and pencil skirt. In other words this item easily works for night and day. In the images on YONA’s website they show it sort of off the shoulder – but I find that I like to wear it in a more fitted wrap/vest-like style. As you can see here:
Normally, I wear a 1X but because of the shape of the garment and the tying elements – I think I could have taken this wrap in either the 1X or the 2X – so if for some reason YONA is out of your size don’t feel hesitant to try this one bigger or smaller than usual.
I am so pleased to have the privilege to review the Yona New York Front Zipper Top in royal blue. It came beautifully packaged, which made opening the box itself feel luxurious! My very first impression was of the tops super high-quality construction and rich color. This is a high-end fatshion find for sure! The blue is a deep ocean hue and is perfectly accented with a classy gold zipper pull that I just love. I chose to pair it with black capri pants, sandals and a chunky necklace – perfect for a Spring luncheon! It felt just fancy enough without being over-dressed!
The fit feels true to size, and very comfortable and flattering to my shape. I enjoy a longer length, which this provided, and fit well all over. The top is a thick, well-made polyester, with just the right amount of spandex stretch. This versatile top is perfect for job interviews, for work or just for a night out as well! This is sure to be a go-to piece for me!
