The Reiss Top That Works Hard – Day To Night


Boy has this Reiss top worked hard for me. I’ve worn it so many ways, and the neutral colour makes it so easy to pair with literally anything too. It was a little pricier than the average top/T-shirt but I’m definitely getting my price per wear.



This time I’m styling the Reiss top with a floaty skirt for a night out. I bought the skirt from Asos a while ago. And as per usual, the skirt sold out really quickly and I hate sharing something on here that’s not available to my readers. I couldn’t find anything similar to point you in another direction, so I put it on the back burner. This skirt is also available in petite for a shorter length but even though I’m petite I’m wearing the regular length that I preferred.

It has since been re-stocked on the Asos site here. I realise flicking through my blog posts that I don’t feature a lot of evening/going out outfits here on the blog and I’m interested in your thoughts about that. Would you like to see more? In fact, I’d like to know of anything you’d like to see more of. Give me a challenge! Do post your thoughts in the comment box below.



I love the pleated neckline on the top, softly draping ( the material is a jersey fabrication) and the sleeves are a good length. slightly longer than capped sleeves. It’s been washed in the machine at 40 degrees and launders really well.

The body of the Reiss top is quite long, so there’s plenty of movement without becoming un-tucked. On the website the neckline sits straight across the model’s neckline?, Maybe I should have sized down because it drapes down on me but I quite like that effect.



The skirt is really lovely to wear. It’s floaty and really lightweight. It was the colour that drew me in and the price was good too! I’ve been eyeing up the satin bis cut skirts that are on trend at the moment but this one caught my eye and the trend idea went out the window.



I like the cute tie detail, a nice little touch. A few Gold accents were all that was needed for this outfit I thought. A gold sequin purse and my everyday gold watch. Simple earrings that I wear every day. I didn’t want to look too “overdone”

I travelled in the car and made sure that the skirt was as flat as possible when I sat on it. Avoiding the back of the skirt looking like a screwed paper bag! Yes, this material does crease if you’re not careful. It was easy to iron though.




The KanKan shoes from Kurt Gieger finished the look perfectly. I can’t recommend these shoes enough ladies. They are my all time pair of going out shoes that I reach for.

Super comfortable, not too high, these shoes will dress up any outfit. They’re like a muted gold rather than too bling, They are listed as Nude on the website,  and the heel height is just the perfect balance.

These KanKan shoes are also available in other shades too, including Black and Silver, and plain leather shades or animal print. Matching bags are available too.




Before I go, I just wanted to let you know that the Reiss Summer sale has just begun with 50% off a lot of items. This is how I add good sustainable items to my wardrobe without spending too much money!

You may remember I wrote about stalking trousers on the Reiss website and got them at a fraction of the original price? You have to be quick though because items go really quickly.

    Hi Laurie,
    You look so elegant, each piece compliments the other.I am a petite 5ft 2ins, I probably would have gone for the petite skirt but if you felt more comfortable with the regular that’s what matters.
    I have been watching some of your YouTube posts , they are great , what I love about you is your calm voice and what comes across is your seemingly unflappable deamenour and so so natural, no airs and graces. Just great.
    I have tried to give the thumbs up sign thingy, but got a bit muddled, I will try again.
    Thanks for you blog and vlog.

      Hi Pamela.
      This is nectar to my ears! I do worry about how I come across! And believe me, I do often flap! I can only be me I guess regarding filming. I was actually going to call my blog No Airs And Graces. I still wish I had. But good feedback makes me feel good and inspires me to go on. Thank you so much for this confidence boost xx

  23. June 18, 2019 / 8:10 pm

    What a gorgeous outfit! I love the colour of the skirt and the top looks very versatile as you say. Great! #DreamTeam

      Hi Nat
      Thank you! I chose the colour, easy to mix with everything I guessed xx

  24. June 18, 2019 / 2:44 pm

    Laurie, very pretty! And I think the drapey neckline is lovely. I’d definitely be interested in seeing the occasional evening/going-out look, but mostly daytime. #SpreadTheKindness

      Hi Jean. Thank you. The T-shirt is so wearable. Casual or smart, it really is versatile. Thanks so much for stopping by xx

      Hi Mireille. That’s one of the reasons I chose the skirt, for its movement. It feels good on too xx

      Hi Fiona. Good to hear from you. Glad you like the outfit xx

  27. June 18, 2019 / 9:42 am

    WOW Laurie – you look absolutely stunning! I love everything about this outfit. The soft drape of that neckline, the colour of the skirt (although I always shy away from bias cut skirts and dresses – for some reason I don’t find they suit me) and the shoes are an absolute delight. Oh and the clutch too. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
