Effortless Tee in Dot

Effortless Tee in Dot is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boxy & Comfy Love the fit of this tee! It's boxy and the dropped shoulders make it feel slouchy and relaxed. It's definitely slightly cropped; so if you have a longer torso, you'll either need to wear high waisted bottoms or know you'll flash a bit of skin if you don't wear a cami underneath. The fabric is thin and has that perfect worn-in feeling. I am 5'9 and bought a size medium. I am slightly short waisted, so this hits me right at my pant line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable and comfy! I bought the XS (5'4", 128lb) and it's a little boxy (which is totally fine) but if you're not into that I would size down. It's cropped at the perfect length, not too short or too long. Really great price and incredibly soft! Thinking of buying the striped one as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Fabric, Very Loose Fit Definitelt a comfy tee. I was expecting the boxy cropped body, but wish the sleeves were a teeny more fitted to balance out the oversized look. Awesome quality fabric and super awesome value (at sale price of course).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for play, not for work I just got this in the mail and it's so CUTE, however, I had to return it because it's intention was for work and the front goes too high in order to be worn there. If you want a casual, cute sweater --go for it! For work, however, it won't work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very cropped This was much more crop-toppy than I expected! Thankfully my girlfriend is shorter than me and she will be wearing it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from comfy & cute I normally wear size large tops. This particular item, I felt ran a bit large. I think I could have ordered a medium and been okay with it. It was also boxy, so if you're looking for a crop top style shirt, it's not too revealing. I also tried a dress on at the store, which I was happy to say I could wear a 10 and not my usual 12. Goes to show, just wear what fits!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute dot tee This tee is very comfy and super cute. The color is nice and goes with a lot of other pieces. My only very minor issue is that it is just a little bit shorter than I would like. I'm 5' 9" so this is a fairly common problem for me. Solution: wear a tank or cami under neath. Overall, great top!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from If you're tall, order a size up I'm 5'8" and I ordered a small, it fits everywhere else perfectly but it is way too short for me. I ordered it final sale so I will just have to wear it with high waisted things. Super cute but be careful if you're taller!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boxy tee I ordered this tee in plum color, it is very pretty. The tee is very soft, although it's on a shorter side even for me, and I am very short. The shape of the tee is rather boxy and because of the materials, it does not drape well, so it could make the upper body appear shorter and wider than it actually is.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the look but got holes in it almost instantly! I love how this tee drapes and the burgundy color is perfect BUT I washed it once on delicate, inside out, and it came out with holes in it. Also seems to have gotten more when wearing it with jeans (in the front). Fabric is just too tissue-delicate! And you can't sew the holes, so sigh . . .
