For the love of the Boho Chic Top

As warmer weather rolls around, what better time to wear a light and airy boho chic top than now? I love cotton tops for spring and summer because it keeps you cool. Spring is finally peaking here in NYC and so it was the perfect time to do this post.

This top is from Avow Apparel. It’s a new company that launched their Spring collection this March. Their fall line will be at New York Fashion Week at Relief on the Runway this September. I had the pleasure of bumping into Christina of Avow Apparel completely random at the rental car service in California. When there is something that makes you noticeably a Muslim (hijab in my case) it causes others to say Salaam (greeting Muslims say to one another meaning peace be upon you) and vice versa. An extra smile, Salaam and head nod can start up a conversation and that’s exactly what happened in this encounter.

I can’t explain to you how unbelievably soft this top is. You totally feel like you are wearing nothing. It’s so light, breathable and soft but it’s double lined and it is not see through at all. The extra embroidery at the chest and the snap button details at  the arms make this top unique. The high low loose flow makes it a warm weather staple.

Christina told me her company was based upon a woman being spiritual, feminine and free. When she told me this, I politely smiled and nodded. When you hear what a company is supposed to be, sometimes you just smile and nod because you only half believe it and you have to actually see the clothes and wear them to believe it.  After putting on this top and doing my photoshoot with Antar of IAMSHOOTER I have to promise you I do believe what she said. I was at such ease while wearing this top and during the photoshoot. There was no worrying about if the dress flattered me from one side over the other or me wondering if it made me look fat or frumpy. I knew the top looked great at every angle and it’s loose enough that it hides any problem areas you may think you have. Also, I love the length of this top; it’s long enough to enable me to wear them with my (loose) skinny jeans.

This modest top made me feel so effortlessly boho chic. Not to mention the many compliments I got while wearing the top. This top is the Poet Maxi Top and I also have the Wandering Star Top which is extremely loose and flowy. The Bohemian Dreams Top didn’t fit quite right due to my exceptionally long torso. If you want a more fitted top you can try the Zahra top. The rest of them are very figure concealing but not in a plastic bag kind of way, but rather an effortlessly chic super feminine kind of way.
