Kettlewell's silky tops have become a bit of a cult classic in recent years, featured in national press fashion pages and worn and loved by thousands of loyal customers. And with good reason.

Honestly, if you haven't tried these incredibly versatile tops, you need to. Slim fitting and fine enough to wear as thermals under winter layers (perfect for ski season!) the great quality and bright colours of these tops means that they are opaque enough to wear as fitted t-shirts in their own right, for both work and casual, and they can be layered up with dresses, cardigans and sweaters for almost infinite ways of wearing. Here's just four of our favourites:


The silky roll neck is the fashionista's favourite, with good reason. It can easily switch from 70s chic to minimalist style to evening glamour. For a cute take on a retro look, pair it with our Peta Tunic and leggings or thick opaques. In warmer weather, just pair it with everything from mini to midi length skirts for a sleek look that just hints at retro.

The silky tops are great for workwear as well as casual - try pairing a pale coloured silky crew with a bold skirt and cardigan for a modern twist on the office wear classic of black suit and white top.

You can't beat a silky top for layering up on comfy lazy days. Try pairing our silky v neck with simple leggings, a cosy scarf, cardigan and sheepskin boots. When the weather gets warmer you can lose the boots and scarf and still feel comfy and casual.

For effortless elegance on your next lunch date, simply throw a super-chic and super-snuggly alpaca shawl over your silky scoop neck, for style and warmth whatever the temperature of the restaurant. Once the weather gets warmer, just ditch the alpaca or swap it for cooler cotton knitwear.

I’m watching a day late.. on YouTube.

My comment as a size 16/18 5ft6, if slightly lumpy 71 year old might I suggest that pattern in your tops might help cover a multitude of sins!!

The scoop one is fab under the wraps for a smooth silhouette.. and is also warm. please please order in size small in lots of deep shade spring/ warm spring colours xoxo they are all sold out!!! I find the lighter colours are seethrough so not an option.

Would be great if you could get the silky scoop in lots more warm spring colours and in size small as most are sold out..

I find these are great under wraps especially in deeper/ darker shades. The lighter shades like peach/ soft white are see through and less practical. Love your colours xo
