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.

After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
Like every female over the age of ten in America, I know that Manolo Blahnik designs and makes fabulous shoes for women. Full disclosure: I hate shoes and would go barefoot down Fifth Avenue if I dared. I opt for black, simple, utilitarian, low-heeled shoes that do not have the word “pain” written all over them. But, most important: can I walk for miles in them? In Manhattan we all walk everywhere.
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.
