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.

Back in the day, buildings such as this were called “girls’ residences” and there were dozens of them – now there are only nine left. Seeing an article on this subject titled, “Maiden Manhattan” by writer Jessica Dailey that appeared in the New York Post on Thursday, March 14, 2019 definitely brought back memories.
Plans were in the works for us to see the Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden when, on Tuesday, March 26th, I received a copy of the April issue of Veranda magazine in the mail. As per usual, I sat down to give it a quick run-through to see if there was anything that caught my fancy.
A favorite “fun read” in the Weekend Financial Times is “Lunch with the FT” which always seems to live up to my expectations. In the March 17, 2019 edition a two-hour lunch/interview by Jo Ellison, the FT’s fashion editor with Victoria Beckham did not disappoint.
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.
