Inspired by waves lapping at Thailand’s southern beaches, this crinkled cotton top flows and flatters. As easy to wear as your favorite T-shirt, but with an asymmetrical pocket and drapey cut to give it contemporary flare. Lightweight and easy to layer, you’ll reach for it year-round. The great fit across the shoulders keeps the look relaxed, but never sloppy. Handmade in a small workshop in northern Thailand.
To freshen up the texture, you can twist up the fabric when it comes out of the washing machine and let it dry that way (something you may remember doing with broomstick skirts in the 1970s, or 1990s, or today).
We recommend washing dark colors separately and drying on low heat or out of direct sunlight to minimize shrinkage and keep the colors true.
Order a size larger for best fit. The colors RUN on the first few washes. GREAT tops.
I got this top in turquoise and white, and I love both of them. The fabric is comfortable and cool on a hot day. The style is flattering and fun. I love the strong turquoise color, and the white version goes with any color of leggings, pants, or skirt. These will be my go-to tops this summer. One important note--the size guide made it clear that the white fabric does not crinkle the same way the colored version does. So the white top runs a lot larger. I bought it one size down from the turquoise version, and it's still looser than the larger size in turquoise. The two tops fit differently and hit me at different lengths, but both are comfortable and flattering.
I love the color and fabric. It is light enough for hot weather without being see-through. I didn't give it a higher rating because I do not like the sleeves. I like tees to be elbow length to protect my skin from sun as well as hide my flabby arms! I like the belly hiding flared bottom. I hope mine doesn't shrink in the wash; I won't put it in the dryer.
In general, I really like all the Crinkle Cotton tees and pants. They are comfortable, especially in the hot summer. However, one must be very careful in the washing and drying of them. I have had one shrink and the other was too large, even though it was the same size as previously ordered. However, the Customer Service (Ken, particular) has been wonderful working with me. So I still recommend them.
