This is my new favorite top. Seriously. I received a fabulous package of goodies from new eco-friendly designer, SPUN, last night, and I can already tell this top is going to be a staple in my closet. The fit is perfect – it flares out a bit at the hip, but isn’t boxy at all. There is subtle gathering at the neckline, and slightly puffy sleeves, but the details all “work” together to create a stylish, flattering, but classic look. The color is amazing – it’s a midnight blue, with a hint of dark purple – I love it.
I’m wearing a size 4 (L) and I consider the fit to be true to size. I wouldn’t want it to fit any differently, but if you’d like it to be more snug or fitted, you could size down. My challenge is always fitting my (W I D E) hips, and the large in this top fits them PERFECTLY.
I also received two cardigans, one in “tibetan blue” and another in black. I cannot profess my love for cardigans enough, and these are welcome additions to my closet! I LOVE that the sleeves are not too long and it’s easy to wear open (in my opinion, the cardigans run smaller, especially around the hips, so if you want a looser fit, size up) because it’s not too big.
