Today we're talking about the Washed Tent Sleeve Shirt, one of the more basic pieces this season. This top is the one that you pull out of your closet when you don't know what to wear; you put it on with denim + slides and your out the door. It's tent sleeves and wider hemline make for a feminine but effortless and easy look.
When I designed this top, I wanted just that. Something I could put on when I wasn't in the mood to try, or was having a mental fashion block. What's special about this top is it's texture. More often than not, linen can feel very stiff and rough. We washed the fabric beforehand, mainly for pre-washing purposes to reduce shrinking, but also benefitted from it having this new soft texture as a result of the washing process. Linen can also be a hassle because it wrinkles so easily but the washing gave it this undone, worn, slightly wrinkled look which is great because the wrinkles look purposeful (a.k.a. less ironing for you!). We were able to remove about 3% of shrinkage during the pre-washing process which means that it won't shrivel up for the customer, yay!
Linen is pretty breathable as well so it's great for warmer months. The loose fit of this top will also help to keep you cool and not so sticky. This top has definitely been one of our best sellers so far this season, especially in the ivory color, it's just so versatile.
How to Wear: Pair with your favorite denim + sandals. Add a fun accessory for a pop of color.
