Gap: Airy Pleated Print Blouse Review (Update)

This is an update to yesterday's post about Gap's Airy Pleated Print Blouse.  I tried this top on in both colors available, a dark blue-grey/teal pattern and a red-orange/light pink pattern.

My feelings about this top are the same, but I do want to note that the fabric on this top was very nice.  It is a nice, light cotton that would be great for wearing in the spring or summer (or any other time it is warm!).

Because of the cut of this shirt though, it doesn't move terribly well.

I do have to say that I like this color combination better than the other one.  I think the bright red-orange works really nicely with the light pink, and is prettier than the dark blue-grey/teal combination.

What do you think?  Which color combination do you prefer?

I like the bright red-orange with the light pink.

I like both color combinations, but I am partial to orange things :-) I am a fan of shapeless tops, especially for summer (I hope I don't get around giving the maternity vibe, though). I wish I had time to check this out in person, because now you made me want it.

I definitely like the orange one better. This looks like such a comfy top!

@Amanda's Sunshine and AppGal - I also prefer the orange/pink combo. I think it is a much "happier" pattern!

@Margot - Haha, I totally hear you on the maternity vibe, but I bet this top would look really cute on you, especially with your newly acquired belting skills :)
