Last time I posted a "style" post, I mentioned I was living in Nikibiki tops lately. So it should be no surprise that today's top is also a Nikibiki. This is my first quarter sleeve top from them, and I really love the length of the sleeves.

Of the five styles of one-size-fits-all Nikibiki tops I own, here's a little breakdown to how they fit.
  • The long sleeve tops are not too snug, and are very long with very long sleeves. They're my ideal fit for a shirt. They layer underneath sweaters & jackets, and the length is perfect so it never rides up. 
  • The long sleeve animal print tops are also long, but they have a tighter fit than the plain long sleeve tops. They also have an off-the-shoulder type of fit, so they're really sexy. I love going out in mine or layering them under jackets for a more conservative look.
  • The quarter sleeve tops are a bit shorter and tighter, perfect for petite customers. 
  • The cap sleeve tops are your everyday t-shirt. Like the quarter sleeve tops, they fit a bit tighter and are a bit shorter, but I have no problem keeping my midriff covered in them. 
  • The tank tops are my favorite summertime layering staple. They don't go too low, cover my bra straps, are extra-long, and go under almost every tank or tee that I wear during the summer. These and the long sleeve tops are my absolute favorites.
Also, I know these shirts always seem to look tight, but they are all sold as one-size options. They are awesome for people who love to layer, or people like me who prefer to wear tighter tops and then big chunky scarves or sweaters over top. Also, Nikibikis are great for maternity wear. You can wear them through the entirety of your pregnancy, and they'll stretch as the baby grows but they won't stretch out

Can you tell I adore Nikibiki? You can see the other ways I've styled my Nikibiki tops here:  long sleeve animal print layered under a sweaterwith a bright scarfwith a mini skirtlayered under a leather bomber jacketwith a high-waisted skirtwith shorts & sneakers

oh gosh, Mizunos are my absolute favorite! I ran in them all through high school (the Wave Alchemy- I don't think they even make them any more! 6, 7, 8, and 9!) but switched to Asics in college because that's who we were sponsored through. I recently bought my FIRST own pair of running shoes post running in college (I stalled forever...getting free shoes for so long was nice!) and though I really really wanted to get back to wearing Mizunos, they are just definitely on the more expensive side. SO, I settled for an older model of neon pink Asics. I love em, but still have a special place in my heart for my Mizunos. Hope you find the perfect pair for you!!

Annelise Rowe said...

Thank you! That means a LOT to me. It's the goal!

Annelise Rowe said...

You're right about them being expensive. When I buy them locally they cost around $120. Jeez!! But yep, they're just awesome. I found a pair of almost all-white Brooks to take to Basic. Hope they'll work out OK, I've been breaking them in and I like them so far, but they're no Mizuno :)

Cody Doll said...

Your welcome. Well I think you can mark that goal off. ;]

" if something isn't working for you, change it." needed this reminder today cause I've been doing so bad in this new year.
