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.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!
I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
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 contact us. We're happy to help you get it right.
