New Tee: Live Simply Crewneck - Cute

I haven't liked Lululemon's Modern Tee because of the vertical line running down the back and the boxy fit but there is a new Live Simply Crewneck out that looks really cute. It's also in some gorgeous colors. I must try it on. They are $48.

Live Simply Crewneck in Heathered Plum (love!), Heathered Wish Blue (love, too!), and Teal Zeal


Live Simply Crewneck - no more vertical seam. Yay!

I'm pretty sure the colour in the first picture is heathered plum, not heathered lolo.

Yes, the first top is the Heathered Plum. The heathered colors look kind of dull though. I wish they made it in solid colors. Anyone know if its actually brighter in person?

I bought the plum (yes it's plum) and wish. They aren't bright colours in person, but aren't boring looking either.

The fabric is much more substantial than the 5yr pimas, and the cut is more flattering than the 5yr and modern.

Fyi I think that these are worth sizing down in - I found that a size 8 fit similarly to my size 10 5yr and was more snug than my size 8 modern.

I would love for lulu to experiment with necklines (boat neck) and sleeves (3/4, full).

Any news on new pant colors? I would love navy or dark grey relaxed fit pants!

You are right, it's heathered plum.

I haven't read anything about new pant colors in luon pants. I am dying for a new color of Still pants. Changing the waistband does nothing for me since that part is covered by the top I am wearing. I would love a dark olive green or a really dark gray.

@luluaddict -- do you size down in the stills?

Thanks

@momof5 I size down in the stills, if that helps. I think generally they are on the larger size. It would be nice if Lulu was consistent in making all size 4s or 6s etc. the same regardless of the pant. Would be less confusing for sure.

I went down 2 sizes with the stills and they are still loose fitting. Its meant to be that way.

These shirts are def smaller than the 5yrs. They are also much shorter, almost a baby t in comparison to the 5yr pima. Too short for me! (I'm 5'8" and to get it to fit on my torso I need a 4, which is much too short.)

If anyone buys from American Apparel, they are similar in feel and cut, androgynous and unisex, and always always too short for me.

I do think the sleeves look much longer than the 5 yr, which I like because I don't think those short sleeves flatter most upper arms.

@anon 8:36 (or anyone else who can help) When you state it is smaller....do you just mean lengthwise? or are you recommending sizing up?
Some people say size down, some TTS...I don't know what size to order...

Tons of new photos up on the saskatoon facebook page!

I think sizing depends on how long your torso is, too. The picture of the girl in the photo on this page , the top looks like it goes to the top of her pant line. Another picture I've seen (on 4th St's facebook page), the shirt almost covers the girls bum (a different girl who looks about the same size). So either the length is totally different between sizes, or one person's torso is longer than the other. Just my two cents.

It looks like a nice basic tee, but $48!?!?!?!

Love your site. Is the Live Simply Crew made of Cotton or a combo of something?

LuluAddict said...

@ Judge - They're probably a blend of cotton with a little lycra for stretch.

@ mom - I don't size down in the Stills because I like them loose and flowing. I don't exercise in them, they are strictly for casual wear.
