Inspired by the gentle gulf waves lapping the shell-speckled shores of Captiva Island, the Captiva Crop top is the breezy cropped tee that your wardrobe has been calling for.

Constructed top down in a seamless circular yoke, the Captiva Crop uses a combination of eyelet stitches for an airy drape and a delicate braided texture sure to catch all the compliments.
