Womens' Columbia Omni Shade Shirt Review
When putting outfits together for outdoor activities during the summer months I always shop for women's Omni-shade clothing by Columbia. I like the quality made clothing that offers UPF 30 sun protection. The Columbia Omni-shade line of clothing do not wrinkle and I never feel overheated no matter what I am doing outdoors; gardening, hiking or running errands.
Here is an outfit that I put together with a plaid pattern Omni-shade shirt by Columbia. Note the sleeves are rolled up and are kept in place with a button holder.
Style and Size
The Omni-Shade Shirt by Columbia comes in a variety of colors and prints. When shopping online for this shirt I have bought the plaid and other printed shirts. I like prints because they color patterns are cute. I tend to shop for the colors blue and pink or the mint and pink prints and basic solid colors to wear with print shorts or capri pants.
The cut is feminine and semi-fitted. Last year I bought 2 of these shirts in a size medium and they fit fine everywhere except my bust. The buttons pulled. I eliminated this fit concern by wearing a camisole with a shelf bra under the shirt which enabled me to leave this button open.
This year I bought the shirt in a size large and the overall fit is not as fitted and the buttons in the bust area do not pull. My husband says the shirt looks fine, not boxy. If your bra cup size is a C then size up.
Wear the shirt untucked because the cut of this shirt hits high hip and if you tucked it in then it would come untucked quickly.
Caring for Shirt
Machine launder shirt in delicate clothing cycle, cold water and use no chlorine bleach. Dry in air fluff then hang.
