Polka Dot Big Shirt
Navy background polka dot top is fantastic.
Wow, reviews were all over the map on the various versions of this one. I purchased the Navy background with multi-colored dots. The dot colors are cream, pink, taupe, aqua, yellow & orange, allowing you to accent with a scarf or jewelry or wear a cardigan/jacket in any of the dot colors.
The Navy version of this blouse doesn't come across as girly or frilly or playful as you may think multi-colored polka dots would do. I believe the navy polka dot blouse looks sophisticated, particularly with neutral taupe (not khaki) pants. Another reviewer said sharp & I'd agree with that, too. The 'grown-up' polka dot flair has something to do with the very crisp blue color & the larger size of the dots.
And as another reviewer said, you could go completely casual with any number of colors of capri pants. I wear this to work on casual Friday with wide leg dressy jeans & always get compliments on it. I'd as easily wear it on normal workdays if I had the right color taupe pants. :)

this blouse fits great and the white polka dots on the black background are perfect. Goes with so many skirts and split pants.

Grey Polka Dots
The picture in the catalog shows a black blouse with white polka dots, but the polka dots are grey, so my white pants looked terrible with the blouse. Because the dots are grey, the blouse looks dingy or dirty, especially since the buttons are white, which makes the grey even uglier. I sent the blouse back. Not sure if the dots on the pink and purple blouses are white or grey. If they are white, I would consider a substitute, because I like the fabric and the blouse fits well.

Pictured as black with white polka dots but dots were actually beige and buttons white. Not attractive. Button holes were puckered. Fabric cheap. I knew this blouse runs large from comments so I ordered small and the fit was fine. I love tunic length blouses. Sent back today.

Very flattering and beautiful material.
I received one of these in black. I found the material to be so nice and it fit me so good, that I ordered it in amethyst.
You can't beat the price for what you get.

I ordered the Wildberry shirt and it fit just fine in the size I ordered. The colors are bright and summery and I have gotten many compliments on it with the white capri's.

PurplePolka Dot Big Shirt
I bought this same shirt (except for the buttons) about 20 years ago and was so happy to see it again, because mine is faded and needs replacing. I know now how to keep the fading down to a minimum. Always use cold water and DO NOT USE LAUNDRY DETERGENT. Educate yourself about "Laundry Balls" - I use the ionizer ones. They save your clothes, your money and if you use a home washer (not the laundromat) they will save on your water bill!! Love this shirt.... now I can start wearing more often.

Tehy aren't kidding when they say BIG SHIRT
I buy a lot of stuff from Blair and order mediums in tops. The medium in this top is like an XXL! I understand it's a "BIG SHIRT" but really? It came to my knees and was way too big even in the shoulders. Maybe yuo should recommend people by down a size. A small would have bene just fine for me - bit I am just returning the item...love the polka dots - but not worth the hassle to try again.
