La Maison Rililie has a keen eye for detail and this is certainly the case in SpliTTop. This cute summer top features a dramatic short sleeve with cables at the shoulder and a folded-split opening. Discreet folds on the sides allow for a more pronounced A-line shape that continues in a slightly curved hem at front and back, while a subtle contouring of the waist still ensures a flattering shape, that allows for a comfortable fit and look.
SpliTTop is worked with a simple crew neck, but it also has stripe placement that is reminiscent of a horizontal boatneck, to keep in balance with the wider body shape. All edges are worked with contrasting braids and i-cord. for a finished look.
