Zara Striped Tie-Front Blouse – Size XS

What I loved...

  • Tie-front - I had been seeing this tie front shirt idea a lot on social media and magazine so I wanted to give it a try. At first I was skeptical and thought it might exaggerate my pear shape. I found this silhouette was still flattering if worn with darker pants that focus your attention on the tie waist. 
  • Length - I love this top because it's a cropped length, which is great for us ladies with short torsos! I recommend wearing it with high-waisted pants since this top is a shorter length.
  • Sized Generously – This shirt was a rare find for me at Zara because it was not too tight around my arms or midsection. I bought this shirt in an XS because I found that it was sized generously.

 

Garment measurements:

Center front = 18.75''

Bust = 39''

Neck drop = 4''

Sleeve opening = 6.5''

Center back = 22.25''

 

NOTE: The pants I'm wearing from a prior season.
