Rated 4 out of 5┬áby ShoppingDiva LOOKS CASUAL, BUT IT's COMPLICATED!
This top is deceptive. It looks casual and relaxed, but not really.
First of all, there is this ribbon that runs across it that gets in the way. As a few others have done, I cut mine off. It might be there for hanging purposes? I found no purpose for it as far as styling. I hang on velvet hangers so nothing slips anyway. If this ribbon is for styling or something else, I couldn't figure it out.
However....secondly on the INSIDE LEFT shoulder/arm area is a tab. If you put your arm through that when putting on the sleeve, this creates the corner fold-over pull that is shown in the photo. If you DO NOT put this through your arm, the neckline is more scooped and drapey.
I'm busty and bought an XL and the fit is just as shown. It drapes, but isn't too billowy. The sleeves are form-fitting. The length can be pulled down or scrunched up. The fabric is thin and this is great for layering in colder temps.
Sorry this is a long review but I wanted to explain about the ribbons and inner tabs.

The fabric is lightweight and soft. The gathering at the neckline is very interesting and makes a casual top seem special. You could wear this with jeans and flats or with dress pants and a great pair of earrings to make it more business casual or movie date. I tried two sizes and chose the smaller size because I wanted it to be more fitted across the bust (I don't need more volume there) it fit a bit tighter around the arms in the smaller size, but I think that balances the extra fabric in the shirt and makes it look more stylish and less casual. There is enough volume at the waist to hide a little bit of "muffin top". The band at the bottom of the shirt isn't noticeable at all on me like it is is the photo. Overall, I like the shirt, it's a great addition to the "casual but stylish" segment of my wardrobe.

From summer to fall. This fit's like a dream. It comes down over your hips and looks great with slim pants or tights. The fabric is soft and seems to float on your skin. This does not fit tight but flows, nicely. It's sophisticated and hip.
