Tees are a wardrobe staple. They can be dressed up or down and can be worn to the office or out on the town. The key in making them so versatile is how they are styled. With Adea launching their own line of modal tees in May, which you can read about here, I thought I'd take this opportunity to offer some options on what to wear with one of my favorite wardrobe pieces- the tee.
A well-fitted blazer will be key in elevating your tee. By finding a blazer that fits well and is tailored to suit your shape, it will bring your entire outfit together. Then, the tee is simply a way to let your personality shine through and a way to be comfortable by sporting your favorite tee at the same time.

A Leather Jacket
A high-quality leather jacket can be an investment but like many fine items, it tends to only get better with age. What I love most about a leather jacket is its ability to completely transform a look. If you wear it with jeans and stiletto boots, you have the rocker vibe. On the other hand, if you use it as your pop of color, you have an entirely different look.

Instead of focusing on the top, try pairing a tee with a skirt. The fun in doing this is you can pair a knit (the tee) with a woven (the skirt). Mixing fabrications is one of the best ways to elevate a look, as a woven can often come across as dressier, by intermixing the two, you get the best of both worlds.
Have fun with lengths of the skirt too, check out a past post on Playing with Skirts for more information.
Style Tip: If you pair a knit tee with a knit skirt, layer on a woven jacket- such as a blazer or a leather jacket. That's another way to intermix fabrics.

As always, have fun with fashion.

When we saw Crazy, Rich Asians, the smash romantic comedy of 2018, we all agreed that one of the standout performers in the movie was Awkwafina (Nora Lum) – she was a definite scene-stealer. By the way, where are the sequels? The latest rumor is that filming will start with two movie sequels filmed back-to-back in 2020. Don’t bet the rent money. But never mind, when they do come out I’m sure they’ll knock our socks off.
I have a subscription to Air & Space, which is a bimonthly magazine that was first published in 1986 and comes from the Smithsonian. It’s especially relevant this year because this is the 50th Anniversary (1969-2019) of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Neil Armstrong’s first words – as he stepped down onto the soil of Luna were, “One small step for man, one giant step for mankind,” as the whole world watched.
Let’s get one thing straight: I’m not a morning person. This means that every day I get up, fire up the computer for emails, stagger into the kitchen to make a blistering hot, strong 20 oz. mug of coffee and finally, click on New York’s Channel One to check on the weather and/or news while sinking into the sofa and trying to wake up. Ergo: I hate mornings or as Moss Hart once famously said, “Nothing happens before noon, that doesn’t happen after.”
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.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
