Inspired by 1940’s romantic comic books, Smitten NYC Clothing combines retro details with modern cuts to create a feminine, chic, trendy clothing line for today’s stylish woman. Smitten Clothing is driven by the idea to help everywoman feel “Smitten” which is why they offer fabulous clothing pieces such as cardigan sweaters, flattering dresses, casual trendy shirts, cute dressy tops, and sleeveless tank tops.
Smitten has a generous selection of classic tank tops with a high-end designer feel to them. Summer is the idea season to wear tank tops, but here in Texas, they are worn all year round. Keeping this in mind, I wanted something that I would enjoy wearing throughout the year. After several fun hours of shopping and contemplating, I decided on the Tank with Cartoon Detail.
The Cartoon Detail Tank features a deep scoopneck in front, and mid scoop in back. It is made with beautiful stitching detail along the arm line as well as double stitching at the hemline. The hemline includes a wide band with a small slit on each side. The bust area features a pocket on the left side with the whimsical detail of two comic characters sharing a passionate kiss.
From first glance, you will only see the top of the (comic) man’s head. Once you pull the pocket outwards, the romantic kiss is revealed. The photo shown above resembles the pocket’s comic book detail, only without the “Smitten” thought bubble.
This white tank top is made from 100% cotton and is undeniably the softest tank top I have ever worn. The material is much more lightweight compared to a traditional cotton t-shirt. If I hadn’t read the label, I would not believe this tank was made from cotton. It feels more like a delicate silk or rayon/wool blend. The care instructions are easy to follow: hand wash, lay flat to dry. This tank top is very well made and looks brand new after several washes.
Subtle, clever stitching gives this shirt the appearance of an expensive sweater rather than a plain tank top.The Tank with Cartoon Detail can be worn casually with shorts, jeans, or capris and flip flops throughout the warmer months. Yet,this tank proves its versatility when paired with a nice pair of denim jeans, leggings, or dress pants and blazer for a polished, dressed up, sophisticated look through the cooler months. I could not have made a better selection! This tank provides everything I was looking for.
There is a bit of sheerness to this top, allowing the skin tones to be exposed. If you would like to appear modest, pairing a camisole is a quick and easy resolution. I actually found this to be a great feature, as it only adds to its versatility. In respect to sizing, it appears Smitten NYC clothing may run large. Normally, I require an X-Large, but their available clothing sizes are X-Small-Large. I chose large and it fits me perfectly. I was not able to locate a sizing chart, but Smitten will respond to any questions via email or telephone.
Smitten’s website is super easy to navigate and it took me no time at all to fall in love with their beautiful collection of vintage inspired clothing. Once you see their latest styles, you will understand why I had such a hard time choosing just one item. Here are a few items on my wish list:
When you shop at Smitten NYC, you can expect to find the hottest “dressed to kill” styles. I admire the fact that they are able to offer sexy, unique clothing, while remaining modest and comfortable at the same time. Smitten exceeded my every expectation. From their lightening fast shipping, to their high-quality, I feel completely confident shopping with Smitten in the future.
