I bought this in S and XS to see which fit better and I liked the slightly closer fit of the XS so I returned the S. It definitely does fit loosely. I was a bit disappointed that there were no pockets, but it's not a deal breaker. Love the material and the style.
Love that I can dress the shirt up or down. Can wear as a "jacket" or a shirt. Too short for me to wear as a dress. Can't wait to start traveling again as this will make a nice travel piece.
I really like this top. It is almost long enough to wear by itself since I am fairly short, but I will wear it with leggings. I usually do not wear shirts or blouses--stick mainly with pull over type tops, but I am glad that I got this as it looks more polished than pull over tunics.
I just love the belted tunic. I broke my arm recently and it is perfect to wear at this time. The fabric is beautiful!
I have been impressed with the longevity and versatility of this garment. Honestly, when I chose it, I did so because it was the lightest-weight option and we were approaching summer in New Orleans - not because I thought it was the most my style. Turns out it very much was! It took me from NOLA on a cross-country move to Alaska, where it has unpacked boxes and gone on hikes. I never thought I was a tunic person, but it has been so much fun worn so many different ways. My favorite is with the sleeves rolled, either tucked into trousers or worn belted over leggings. This piece will definitely be on my packing list when we're allowed to travel again.
I was a bit in-between sizes, and sized up for more length - part of me wishes I had sized down to the xs instead to make the voluminous sleeves easier to fit underneath things. I also understand that it's technically a tunic and not a dress, but having one more button on the bottom would have made a big difference. If you need your clothes to be wrinkle-free, the linen in the Laurel means it's not for you. Finally, I think the garment would have been improved by a breast pocket or two!
Overall, I am really pleased with this piece. I wore it to participate in the 100 day dress challenge, but still find myself reaching for it regularly. It is versatile and comfortable. My measurements are roughly 33 bust, 27 waist, 37 hip, and I would describe my body type as pear-shaped/athletic, with a longer torso and shorter legs. I usually wear an XS/S. The small was an oversized fit, but not comically so.
