Spring is Here - Bring Out the Tees!
As you know by now, I'm a fan of tees - remember the post, Sporting a Tee for Any Occasion. Now, with spring upon us, it's the perfect time to pull out the tees once again. Yet, as I have discovered, not all tees are created equal. In turn, here are five features to look at and questions to ask yourself to help you pick the perfect tee.
Neckline - Are you more of a v neck or crew neck or boat neck person? If you aren't sure, keep in mind what you are wearing it with. Yes, even with a tee. For example, if you are wearing shorts, maybe you want a crew. On the other hand, if you are wearing jeans, maybe it's a v neck that will work best - remember, it's all about balance.
Hand - How does the material feel? The tee should feel like a second skin; it shouldn't be itchy or scratchy or uncomfortable. Simply put, the tee should be the last thing on your mind.
Fabric - What material was used to make the tee? Although we often think of a standard cotton tee, there are so many options available, such as modal - which is a soft, silky fabric. Be open to trying new fabrics, as different fabrics can take a tee from what you wear during your downtime to what you wear out on the town. And yes, remember tees can be dressed up.
Stretch & Cling - Although a tee is a knit and will have stretch, the degree can vary. Now, how do you like your stretch? One way to answer this is to think of cling. When trying on the shirt, how does it hang? Does it cling to your trunk or offer a looser fit? Which do you feel most comfortable with? Are you catching yourself tugging at the tee to stretch it out? Again, a well-fitting tee should be clothing that is your go-to and shouldn't need to be tugged or pulled once on.
Length - Can you raise your arms without worrying about your hem creeping up? Simply put, can you move freely and be comfortable? A tee should hit you at the right spot on your body that is flattering and allows you to be you. It should allow enough length where it can be tucked in, if you prefer, or to leave out. Or, be the appropriate length to wear under a sweater, for example.
Tees have so much potential! Have fun wearing them with and in a variety of styles. And, don't forget to check out Adea's Modal Tees.

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton made waves recently with its announcement of the fashion house, Fenty, led by Rihanna. This was a first in many aspects for LVMH. What stood out the most to me was LVMH was investing in someone whose original profession was not that of a designer. Yes, Rihanna was widely accepted in the fashion world as a trendsetter and had various collaborations under her belt, but she was not a traditional designer.
I recently came across an article in Smithsonian magazine’s March 2019 issue that discussed the relationship of the author, Margaret Chu, with Phyllis Diller, the stand-up comic who died on August 12, 2012 at the ripe old age of 95 and had outlived two of her children.
I recently read about an interesting trend in the world of travel that I was not aware of at all.
Adult females planning to travel by themselves now have an interesting option: all-women trips.

We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
