Carla Zampatti is known for creating seasonal luxury top must-haves. From camis to blouses and shirts, the top collection is bound to inspire your wardrobe. Shopping for a luxury top online involves a number of considerations to make sure you are able to get the most of your investment. Considerations such as versatility, timelessness and expected cost-per-wear are great factors to consider when looking for a designer top to buy.
Purchasing a designer top is like any other designer purchase – you will be more invested in the piece than something from the high-street. This means that considering your particular events and needs is essential to making the right decision. For example, if you are looking for an addition to your corporate wardrobe, looking for a top that fulfills the needs of a more dressed up, detailed look is key. Blouses that tie at the neck and can be tucked into pants or a skirt are timeless options to integrate into your work capsule wardrobe. Button-up shirts are also elegant work options as they can be worn tucked in or loose, but can also be transitioned into a laid-back leisure look for weekend wear.
Building a capsule wardrobe
Carefully curating your tops for your seasonal capsule wardrobe is key to making the most out of your shopping. Choosing designer tops maintains the shopping strategy of buying less but buying better. Quality over quantity is paramount to curating your wardrobe, as a well-constructed white button-down will be reached for more than an abundance of ill-fitting less expensive options.
A great starting point is to build on a few key blouses in black, navy, white or cream. Airy georgette can be worn trans-seasonally as it can be layered in winter under a jumper or blazer but also worn on its own in summer. A simple linen or cotton button-down is essential in white or blue stripe, while a tailored crepe number is also effortless and easy-wear.
A great way to create seasonal differences is to change up your wardrobe with prints. Carla Zampatti is known for classic tailoring, but also for iconic prints that quickly sell-out each season. For summer, think prints flecked with cobalt blue or vibrant florals, while in winter, a dark burgundy and pink print is sure to become a source of layering inspiration under wool coats and blazers. Shopping for a designer top will open up a range of options, as thought-through timeless prints in delicate fabrics are easily discoverable.
What types of tops should I own?
A few necessary tops should include blouses in plain black, navy, white or cream. These can be easily worn to work or paired with jeans on the weekend. A white or striped shirt is also a classic investment that will become an easy favourite. A structured top in crepe is also a fantastic option to own as it will instantly make your outfit dressier. Having a wide range of options will make wearing your pants, skirts and shorts a breeze.
Why choose designer tops?
Designer tops are more likely to be more thought-through in its construction, design, material and print. Carla Zampatti tops are intricately designed by Carla and the design team and go through multiple versions before the final silhouette and fabric are selected. Designer tops, therefore, offer more than just the end product – they are a special piece in your wardrobe that has links to the designer itself and their expertise.
Is it worth it to invest in a designer top?
Shopping for a luxury top involves more consideration than looking for a high-street option. The reason for this is that with a higher price point, a designer top is an investment piece – and the ‘investment’ you are looking to bank on is wear. Making sure your prediction on potential cost-per-wear is accurate is possible through careful consideration. The purpose for the top is the first consideration (work, leisure, party) as you will be able to judge how many occasions you will be able to wear the top too. However, the cost-per-wear rule can be ignored when looking for a very special occasion or when you want a statement top that can be reserved for a particular event.Read More Read Less
