The details are the gems in this chic, versatile tee: sophisticated I-cord finishes the neckline and sleeves, the deep scooped back is elegant and sexy, and a delicate lacy ribbing edges the bottom. Designed with just a hint of waist shaping and seams to add structure, it looks great dressed down with jeans, or dressed up however you like.
