Style on Trial: LnA loose side tail white t-shirt

“Fashionable” T-shirts, what do we think? Having sold us every possible incarnation of the basic white T-shirt, designers like to get creative to produce new and innovative versions of this classic to tempt us. Are you tempted?

We¬†appreciate that T-shirt dressing is very in, especially in the summer. And¬†we always like when a designer does a little something different with a well-worn style. This LnA Loose Side Tail Tee, $70 at RevolveClothing.com, has its unique, slouchy silhouette in its favor when you’re considering spending $70 on a T-shirt. It’s very modern, and would certainly be a staple of a casual summer wardrobe.

On the other hand, is slouchy just another word for sloppy? Is this really just an ill-fitting, asymmetric mess? You decide!

    I have to admit, I really like the style of tee shirts, cardigans etc with long bits hanging from them, and don’t think a bit of asymmetry would hurt one. The tee shirt depicted here isn’t the nicest example I’ve seen though…

    I really like it! I love how it looks paired with shorts, and it’s not THAT expensive. I’m loving the cut of the neckline. But when trying to think of another layer to put on over the top of it, I’m kinda stuck… The sleeves with just create a ‘bulky’ look, won’t it?
    A sleeveless jacket will have to do, I’m afraid.

    It looks good with shorts but probably not with anything else. Might be useful as a beach cover-up though!

    LNA have been doing the side tail thing forever and I’ve never bought one. Don’t get me wrong, the look can be nice to spice up a casual day without going over the top, but LNA have never been my fav t-shirt makers. James Perse holds that spot in my fashion loving heart.

    Also, if this is at Revolveclothing.com then it isn’t $70. Not after you use one of their coupon codes, anyway. Thank God for those!

    It’s ugly. Baggy, oversized t-shirts are one thing but I have always hated asymmetry (when it comes to shape that is, patterns are another thing).
    Personally I think it looks like it has been used in a game of tug-of-war.
    However, if you like it, go for it.
