This top can be worn two ways. Forwards. Or backwards. Depending on how you see it?
Worn with the crew neck as the front, it resembles a classic unisex T. It is designed large enough to pop over the head with a button closure at neck.
There is a slit with the button closure on the intended back of the top. It is meant to be worn UNbuttoned when reversed to be in front. Worn that way, it creates a V shaped neckline.
100% Linen is one of the finest natural textiles available and we're happy to have added this limited edition top by request of some of our loyal customers. If you love linen, this one's for you :)
This white linen is semi-sheer and fabulous. Wear with your matching skin toned undergarments (intrigue!) or have a layered effect with a pretty tank or camisole creating a delicate hazy shape underneath. Cared-for linen keeps its expensive vibe for years of wear, please read more care instructions below. Wear right after hanging dry for beachy, casual style, or iron on linen setting for a crisp look.
It has a loose, 80s vibe with its squared off styling, it resembles an actual letter "T". Off-the-shoulder seams. Blouses at the waist nicely when tucked in.
This style is designed to have a looser, airy silhouette when worn as intended, because it is woven and does not stretch. It does not have bust darts, it drapes straight down from the front of the bust. Oversized top fans can certainly order up one or even more sizes for an exaggerated "one size" 80s vibe.
Here at National Picnic we love the crisp, vellum-like fibers and rich glow of always air-dried linen clothing. Therefore we do not pre-wash this garment. If you prefer a more distressed look of machine dried linen, we suggest ordering a size larger than desired and still take care when cleaning. Still only use a dryer on a low setting and always remove before end of the cycle. While machine dried linen feels softer faster, the added friction and stress also visibly affects the look of the garment.
Machine wash COLD on delicate or hand wash. Hang to dry. Can be worn naturally rumpled or iron on linen setting. Do not bleach. 100% Linen Made in the USA of imported fabric.
