Gypsy Top Classic Green Lace and Pedal Pushers
We just redesigned our famous Gypsy Tops to make them even better with more generous sizing! Based on an authentic late 1940s, early 1950s design, they have been recut and now fit true to size. Made from cool, crisp cotton in a variety of colours, prints and trims they're easy to wear with everything from swing trousers to skirts. With fitted waist to showcase your curves, and an elasticated neckline and sleeves, wear it high up for a demure look, or off-the-shoulder for maximum va-va-voom. Team with one of our cinch belts for an enviable hourglass look that's sure to bewitch all the boys. All our gypsy tops are made in the UK.
Slightly re-modelled and in authentic fabrics, our Pedal Pushers are back! With our trademark high-waist, a rivet button and side zip, and with a delicate side slit at the ankle, these gorgeous slimline pants are wonderfully flattering- making the most of your curves! They are wonderful teamed with a Halterneck Top or one of our new Blouses, or even with a cashmere sweater for that Jayne Mansfield look.
