About every signature tee:
You could say this tee has a "boyfriend fit", but don't think it's unisex, it's been designed for a woman's curves.
It's designed to drape loosely over the torso when worn true to size. It's not meant to fit snugly, but the rule of thumb is order down if you want some curves around the bust. If tight is how you roll, this is not the tee for you.
Since the brand's beginning in 2011, National Picnic Signature Tees have been reinvented with new fabrics each season. Starting in 2018, new tees in the series will be numbered so limited editions can be followed and catalogued as they come and go.
Fabrics used in signature tees can vary slightly in fiber content, drape and feel, which can make a version appear to fit slightly larger or smaller—but know that each signature tee is cut from the same pattern. Differences are noted in each listing. Rarity and exceptional fabrics can affect pricing of special tees in the Signature series.
Back by request (now in more colors)—these leggings were first created simply for pairing with tops in National Picnic photo shoots, and surprise, customers asked for them.
Leggings are everywhere, right? But these are sewn right here in the U.S., AND of U.S. milled fabric (which in the legging world, makes them pretty rare and special). So they'll stick around on the website for those who want them, made to order. Allow 5-10 business days to sew before shipping.
Thanks for asking about them and letting us know why you like them. The cuff at the ankle, nice touch. They seem to be just the right length. They hug your leg, but not skin tight. See the photos, they are worn pretty true to size. The soft fabric feels better than a polyester sport legging, but you can still work out in them.
One customer does love them for yoga. National Picnic didn't think it made yogawear, but it makes perfect sense. So much stretch.
Medium weight rayon with a generous amount of Spandex to keep the knees from getting saggy. Waistband sits higher, near belly button. Great for a layer of warmth under dresses, skirts and tunics; that is, if you can keep from wearing them every night as pajamas.
92% Rayon 8% Spandex Machine wash cold, air dry. Made in the USA of USA-milled fabric.
Picnic Top in 10 oz. Cotton
Save $ -58.00
The original National Picnic top, now a classic for the brand.
This universally flattering casual top is made of 10 oz. cotton, with a touch of spandex to retain its shape, lessen wrinkles and give you seasons of happiness.
Quality medium weight jersey knit. 3/4 sleeve with gathered cuff. Crew neck and raglan sleeves. This cotton version of the Picnic top has a matte finish, like a standard tee cotton, with no sheen.
Searching for this top in a dressier fabric, a silky rayon/Spandex with more drape? This top is available in two types of knit fabric. Over the years we tried to figure out which fabric was the clear "winner" to remain in the collection. Feedback has proven you love them both, so we offer both and let you do the choosing. Click here for the USA-milled rayon/Spandex version.
Meant to drape loosely when worn true to size, women who prefer a slimmer fit can order a size down.

Substantial Ribbed Cotton Leggings
Save $ -68.00
If synthetic athleisure leggings lack the natural fiber feel you crave, but you like the silhouette of leggings, maybe you need to try these. This luxuriously thick and durable ribbed cotton relies on the type of knit that it is, plus a touch of Spandex, to shape to your form and keep its shape.
"Micro-striped," at a distance these leggings appear to be a single color. It's actually super tiny stripes of black and white, or coffee and white.
These have similar qualities to the popular Daily Legging. The cuff at the ankle, nice touch. They seem to be just the right length. They are snug, but not skin tight. Waistband sits higher, near belly button.
96% Cotton 4% Spandex Hand wash or delicate machine wash cold, air dry. Made in the USA of imported fabric.
Home Base Dress
Save $ -74.00
A new home run of a dress. Imagine your standby Stadium Dress, with a slim 3/4 colorblocked sleeve. It's also a teeny bit shorter, about an inch. Not much, but it makes it a sporty difference. Great "sneaker dress". It's also available in all one color, see the selections in the menu.
3/4 sleeve with a cuff finish. Raglan sleeve seams flatter most shoulders. If you have one of the Signature Dresses, this dress has the same fit through the body, a very subtle A-line silhouette. Arms are slimmer and slide into jackets and sweaters to layer easily.
Crew neck, jersey knit raglan sleeve dress, pulls on over the head. Medium weight knit, opaque.
The Spandex in this stretch fabric makes for a flexible fit. This dress is designed to drape loosely over the torso and hips when a true to size fit. This article of clothing is not designed to fit tightly; however, some women may choose to order a size down to achieve a more form-fitting look.
ABOUT LENGTH: Keep in mind as they drape out and over busts and body types, dresses land differently on everybody. Go into your closet, measure a similar dress flat on a table, from center back neck to hem—to get an idea of where a hem will fall on your body.
XS: 34.5" S: 35" m: 35.5" L: 36" XL: 36.5”
95% Cotton, 5% Spandex Machine wash cold, dry flat. Warm iron; steaming to remove any wrinkles works well also. Do not machine dry. Sewn in the USA, of imported fabric.
Bombshell Top in Rayon/Spandex
Save $ -54.00
Why bombshell? It's the slimmest fitting, scoopiest neckline top in the brand's collection. A good choice for when you need less bulk to tuck into skirts and show waistbands. Layers well. Nice as a base under blazers and jackets. Upper arm coverage with wide cuff trim. Raglan sleeve. Jersey knit, 4 way stretch. Falls to hip.
A true workhorse of a style, this flattering basic is available in several colors.
It is sewn of Rayon/Spandex blend, this listing here (silky sheen, heathered colors, fabric is milled in the Northeast USA). Yarn-dyed heathered colors have a textured look and a soft hand.
This top does not have a loose drape like many other National Picnic styles. Expect a closer to body fit, but not super tight. Size down for a little more va-voom.
92% Rayon, 8% Spandex Made in the USA. USA-made fabric.
Hand wash or machine wash delicate cycle, cold water only. Lay flat to dry, warm iron or gentle steam if needed. Dry cleaning is also an option. Do not put in the dryer. Warm to hot water washing and machine drying will shrink your garment. Do not use bleach.
