Extended Style Notes

Banana Republic Plaid Shirt - Size S Petite

What I loved…

  • Boyfriend/oversized style -  I love this shirt because it’s got the relaxed, oversized look but it does not overwhelm my frame. I’m glad that Banana Republic offered this shirt in a petite size because regular size boyfriend shirts usually look like a dress on me. (Center front = 25’’ and Center back = 27’’).
  • Not too tight around the hips - As I mentioned in my earlier post this week, I usually have trouble finding button down shirts that are not snug around my hips. This shirt is also pear-shaped body friendly and comforable (Seat = 20.5”). See link below for how to measure a woven shirt.
  • Plaid flannel -  This shirt is the perfect weekend staple because it’s easy to throw on and match with other pieces.

What could be better…

  • Slightly longer sleeve length -  I wish the sleeves were just about a half inch longer so they would be easier to roll up. However, if you don’t roll them up the length of the sleeves is just right (Sleeve length = 29’’).

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 25’’

Center back = 27’’

Sleeve length = 29’’

Seat = 20.5’’

Chest = 20’’

Shoulder = 15.63’’

LOFT Modern Skinny Cords - Size 28 Petite

What I loved…

  • Stretchy & soft -  As a girl with some curves, I need a little stretch in my pants. These ones are perfect because they are soft (98% cotton) and have a little give (2% spandex). I tried on some other cords at LOFT without spandex and they were soooo uncomfortable.
  • The right length -  Glad these were offered in a petite size because they are not too long. (Inseam = 28’’).
  • Color -  So great for fall and the holidays!

What could be better…

  • Higher rise - Y’all I’m turning into a mom. All I want now is high-waisted pants! These pants are still comfortable, but I do wish they had a higher rise (Front rise = 8’’).

 

Garment measurements:

Waist = 28’’

Inseam = 28’’

Front rise = 8’’
