This top is more sparkly than what is seen on the model. I was expecting it to be sweater material, but it has more of a polyester/rayon feel. The material is on the lighter side, but i love the fit. It skims the body, I hold my weight in my upper body, and its fit me very comfortably, It is more of a relaxed fit, I'm 5ft 7 and i ordered the large size, I wish the length was a little longer. Not a top to wear with leggings, but would look nice with a pair of jeans or structured pants. The color looked more on the burgundy side than purple.
