Michael Stars Shine Boat Neck Top
by Michael Stars | Anthropologie

This is a GREAT tailored knit top. Flattering, tailored, comfortable, crisp and easy to launder. It’s more like a very light pullover than a tee. Much neater, dressier, and more pulled together than a T-shirt. The fabric is substantial and not clingy. Excellent sleeve length. Layers beautifully under jackets, but looks good on it’s own because of the shine and substantial fabric, and good fit. The boat neck is surprisingly bra-friendly. Unfortunately the size range is disappointing since it comes in two sizes only. The XS/S will fit a US0 to 4, and the M/L will fit a US4 to 8. It runs true to size, and works well on a straight on curvier body type. It’s long, so not good on petites and short waists unless it’s hemmed to a shorter length. Don't try the top if you're self conscious about your mid-section.
I don’t wear T-shirts and stick to blouses, shirts and and knitwear for tops. Very occasionally, I’ll find a knit top that ticks all the boxes, and this one did just that. I bought the white and the stripe to wear with jeans and Summer skirts both untucked and semi-tucked. The neckline works well with my pearl necklaces. I love the subtle shine and the tailored fit. The XS/S fits more fluidly on me than the fit on the model. All the colours are nice.
