  • Description

    An artfully engineered top built for versatility and adaptability. This blouse can be worn with the knot in the front or the back for a myriad of different looks: a low V-neck front or full coverage in the front and a low V open back. Tie it in a loose, relaxed knot or in a waist-cinching, pin-up silhouette. Candlelight bouncing off your collarbone at a midnight cafe, warm sunlight stinging your back on a lap around the farmers market - the feeling of intentionally exposed skin makes you all the more aware of each moment.

    It pairs well with all of our high-waisted bottoms and also layers well over silk dresses. Its coverage of the shoulders and arms balances out the deep v. The plunging neckline adds tasteful drama to an all black elegant evening look and a bit of energy to a monochromatic, bright weekend ensemble. In Midweight Linen, this piece has a cheery structure and rustic richness.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Midweight Linen

    Fiber Content: 100% Linen

    Description: Medium weight, sturdy broadcloth linen that can be pressed to a neat, crisp finish or left wrinkled after washing for a perfectly lived-in look. Linen possesses natural strength and durability, and it's a super friendly fiber on the environment. It requires very little processing and is virtually lint-free, hypoallergenic, comfortable in all seasons, insulating, and absorbent.

    Care: Machine washable. Wash on gentle cycle with cold water. Tumble dry warm. Leave unpressed for a beautifully rumpled look (as pictured here), or press on medium heat with steam to remove wrinkles.

    *Linen is a natural fiber and will fade and wear over time, which we love. If you prefer your garments to not show as much wear, hand wash, and do not tumble dry.

So beautiful, the fabric sits

So beautiful, the fabric sits just as well as it does on the model, I ended up adding in a small snap closure as I am quite busty and wanted a bit of extra coverage, especially because I can’t wear a bra with this piece, Love Love Love!

Best top I own.

This gets such versitle wear in my closet. I wear it more conservatively for work, and then flip it around for a concert or night out. The color and feel of the fabric is absolutely perfect.

BEST shirt

I wear this top every day. I bought it in 4 colours and 2 fabrics, not kidding. I mostly wear it with the tie in the back and get tons of compliments on it. I think it's incredibly versatile, makes me feel free without a bra or without so much concern on dressing myself daily (since I just decided to make this my wardrobe) and it's perfect for summer. I can also see it over a turtleneck as we transition to fall, which is exciting. Looks great with skirts, shorts, pants of all kinds, etc. Amazing, thank you EZ.

Great Sexy Piece

Beautifully made linen top. I have a large chest, about a 36D, and find I really only wear the deep V in the back. I love that I am comfortable in it without a bra. I am a bit modest, so I don’t think I’ll be wearing the V in the front since it shows off a lot of my boobs. Very sexy, but too risky for a slip for me!

Cute top with unexpected fit

I was a Maxine crop skeptic but not anymore. Maxine has an unexpected fit that covers you well and actually stays put unlike what you might think. I sized up for added coverage. Bonus ladies - wear Maxine as a cropped jacket over the Ella, Petra or Polly tank or dress.

Cute top for the summer

This top is perfect when the weather is hot. I have only worn it tied in the back, as I have a small cup size.

My favorite top of all time.

I have it in 3 colors and wear it at least once a week. Simple, comfortable, flattering and versatile. I love to pair it with jeans, but it’s great with a shirt too. I’ve even worn it over-top a tank dress for a little extra oomph. I’m 4’10, 110 lbs and I wear an XS.

I wanted to love it

Ugh. I’m a plus sized person. ordered a 2xl and it’s so bad 🤦🏻‍♀️. There is no way to wear a bra with it tied in the front. I have a bra that’s made for shirts like this and it still shows. And let’s be real I have mom boobs (not big like c-d cup depending on the bra and they look horrendous. I thought maybe I could tie it snug enough to give them a chance, nope then it pulls and the shoulder seams slide down. I tied it the other way and there was a ton of fabric just sticking out at the arm pit 🤷🏻‍♀️. If you have large boobs that are perky af or you don’t mind taping your Tatas in place maybe it would work, but def doesn’t seem designed to work for a fluffy person 😭

Thank you for sharing this feedback, Suzanne! We're so sorry that this piece didn't fit as well as you hoped, but we really appreciate your feedback. If you're looking for a cropped top, the Polly Crop might be a good alternative! It also has a v-neck but has more coverage than the Maxine Crop! You can find that piece here if you're interested. :) https://elizabethsuzann.com/collections/tops/products/polly-crop-linen-gauze?variant=20253281353816 In the meantime, if you have any other questions about fit or want to set up a return, our Customer Relations Team is here to help. Just send an email to support@elizabethsuzann.com, and we'll take care of you!
