Summer whites are my favorite. I'll be honest, though: it's a real risk for me to own so much of it because I'm infamous for making a mess nearly every time I sit down for a meal. But nonetheless, it's become my warm-weather go-to. To point, I own a breezy maxi dress worthy of both special occasions and casual wear and a white button-down that I legitimately wear on repeat. And as of this week, there's a newbie in my closet, and I can't get enough of it. Enter the Old Navy Tie-Back Cutout Swing Blouse ($21, originally $30). Ahead, I break down everything you need to know about the design in case you want to add it to your cart, too.
What I Like About This Blouse
I was instantly drawn to this blouse because of its elegant shirring throughout and short cap sleeves. Online, this shirt was pictured worn slightly off shoulder, but I personally liked it more as a fully off-the-shoulder look. I like that it can be worn as both. My favorite detail of all is the bow in the back. Admittedly, I'm not usually a bow girl, but I found it too cute to resist, and shoppers agree. Countless reviewers gush over the feminine detail.
What's Worth Noting
While the overwhelming majority of shoppers gave this blouse five-star reviews, there are consistently a few reasons people selected less-favorable ratings. First, a handful of shoppers deem it "too short," while others found the relaxed fit "too big." I found that the fit was just right, but I can see why the slightly oversize fit might not be everyone's favorite.
Who Is This Blouse Best For?
This lightweight blouse is a lovely option for summertime dressing, and I think it suits various occasions. I wore it with denim shorts and my favorite Old Navy Linen-Blend Platform Sandals ($40) for a casual daytime look, but I can also see myself wearing it with jeans and tan heels for a more formal event.
