… curved-hem tees.
I’m EXTREMELY surprised to find that I’m wanting to wear pants this season. And most of my tops are on the short side – good lengths for skirts, but not pants.
Most tees and tops have straight hems, and if they’re long enough for pants wear they hit me right across the hips – bisecting me, making me look wider, and sometimes pulling at the hem and blousing up top. Not my favorite look. The three longish shirttail/curved hem tees I bought at the Gap last year are getting loads of wear because they dip in front but come up at the sides, which both flatters and accommodates my hips. So I hunted around and found a few similar styles that are currently for sale!
Gap Slub Raglan Pocket T- $19.95
My current Gap versions are burnout fabric with a broad and relatively deep v neckline. This version is a bit more opaque and has a slightly narrower v, but still has that slubby texture. It’s not completely opaque, but will still hide all but the most contrast-y bras. Fits true to size and comes in some great colors, including cobalt, olive green, and coral.
If you’re looking for a warmer, long-sleeved option, this Nordstrom house brand is a cute and affordable option. This shirt comes in a whole bunch of gorgeous colors, including jewel tones like teal, cobalt, violet, mustard, rust, and navy. I haven’t purchased this style myself yet, but am sorely tempted.
Mudd Shirttail Top – $9.80
Can’t beat that price! And this version is available in pink, navy, white, turquoise, citron, and purple. It’s a juniors brand and fit, so order up – the size large worked for me and I’m a size 8 dress / 10-12 pant. Also comes in a burnout version, if you like the mottled look. (Burnout is sheer, though, beware!)
Do curved hem/shirttail style tees work for your figure?
