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.
I love the idea that there is a company that would like to make lovely, functional clothes for women, but so far we are 0/3 with the styles I have tried. This material is beautiful. The tunic swallowed my upper body and accentuated the lower. I would prefer a more tailored fit.
I waited to review until I could include experiences with washing, but I got a LOT of wear out of this before I needed to wash. I finally took it on a camping trip and needed to wash sweat and campfire smoke out. I love wearing this with leggings and I hope this will come out in additional colors (teal or purple, please!). It handles washing great, but needs ironing after. It’s worth the ironing for me. This tunic and my Rowena are my two most favorite pieces of clothing.
The gray-with-stripes works with everything. The fabric is substantial but not too-heavy. It’s finger tip length. I picked it up two sizes too big so I can wear it over anything and everything. Although I doubt I’ll use the belt, I appreciate the option.
This tunic is by far my favorite Wool& purchase thus far. It's so comfy yet professional. I plan to wear it for both my WFH and teaching days this fall. The unattached belt is a nice touch, as it falls more naturally than if there were belt loops. I may have to buy the blue one too... By the way, the tunic is too short to wear as a dress without leggings. Also, it fits loose, I could probably size down to an XS.
