With all of the new fashion coming at us, especially with spring collections hitting the stores, it's easy to get caught up in the latest trends or styling fads. Of course I enjoy breaking them down for you, such as in Fashion Week Street Style Trends or The Belt Bag, but for this post, I decided to go to basics. That is, back to basics with Adea.
When I first got introduced to Adea, I immediately appreciated the brand's approach to fashion - using high quality fabrics in pieces that were styling essentials. It is something the brand has not veered from, and I respect that.
So, why am I bringing this up now? Well, in my recent travels, I brought along a top I had not worn before - I generally advise against this as why take up space in your suitcase with something you don't know how will fit or look or most importantly, you will feel in? Anyhow, after putting it on, trying it on with some different bottoms and finally taking it off, I realized what I needed was a bodysuit, such as an Adea bodysuit. I wanted a top that stayed in place - such as a bodysuit, was in a basic color - black, and was made of a soft material - such as Adea's soft Italian fabric.
When looking at your wardrobe for spring, remember the basics. It is something that can be so easily overlooked, but it's essential to any successful wardrobe. Starting with a good foundation, beginning with your lingerie and building up, will help ensure you are not only stylish but comfortable. And remember, if you aren't comfortable in what you wear, no matter what you have on, you will not exude a your natural confidence.
While you begin deciding which spring trends to buy into, be sure you have your wardrobe stocked with basic essentials first. Some of my Adea favorites, include: Long Sleeve Crew Neck Bodysuit, Long Sleeve Turtleneck Layering Top and 3/4 Sleeve V Neck Layering Top. Which basic is your favorite?

I have always had a fondness for the storied and elegant Plaza Hotel in New York City. Back in the day I interviewed a delightful fashion editor in the Plaza’s famous Palm Court. I found the whole experience fascinating so when I came across an article about the history of the Plaza I started reading at once.
For 58 years, 89% of the astronauts have been men. And for 192 years, there were no women justices on the Supreme Court until Sandra Day O’Connor in 1981. In light of where we are today – these numbers are shocking.
In the five years that I’ve been writing these fashion blogs I’ve come to the conclusion that the creative heads of these worldwide companies have daunting, or almost impossible, daily jobs. The headline you see above came from Alessandro Michele who, in January 2015, became the creative director of Gucci, the company that was founded in Florence, Italy in 1921 and currently has 500 stores worldwide.
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.
