Tips on Selecting a Great Tee Shirt

In almost every celebrity interview, when it comes to naming a favorite wardrobe staple, the classic tee-shirt almost always makes the list. Each piece has its individual style and uniqueness depending on the wearer. The classic white tee can look different on singer Rihanna, Lindsay Lohan or you. Patterns, prints and colors make a simple tee-shirt become a versatile piece.
 

Tee Style Tips

  • Invest in a seamless bra or T-shirt bra for a smooth silhouette.
  • A tee-shirt’s shoulder seam should sit properly at the widest part of your shoulders.
  • A fitted crewneck tee is a classic for all ages.
  • Scoopneck and V-neck types are great for those with fuller busts; be sure to avoid loose-fitting ones that can be unflattering.
  • Cap-sleeve tees show off those toned biceps well.
  • Want to give the illusion of a more elongated silhouette?  Push up long sleeves. 
  • Wear an open-neck fitted tee under a smart jacket for boardroom chic.

What’s Up With Lavender?

I was thinking: What’s up with the color lavender? Icy and cold, it’s all over the place. I’ve been seeing it on magazine covers. You can get in a wallet, like the lavender compact size Coach leather Mini Skinny. Easy to fit in a small handbag or even in your back pocket; or Martinez Valero’s T-strap sandals. Liquid lavender all over your feet. Maybe you want to get Stella’s fragrance; it comes in a lavender bottle. Maybe you want to do your part to help the environment like using a lavender eco-friendly reusable bag, all while looking fabulous, of course. Maybe you want to look at your guy in a lavender tie, because that’s going to look good in a navy suit, pinstripe or not. Not trying to tell you how to dress him, just saying, this could be a good look with blue. Another good lavender look? Check out Michael Kors’ unbelievable camel and lavender. It’s a beautiful combination and a definite must have.

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS – SPRING ’08 TRENDS

Yesterday, as I was leaving the hair salon, a patron mentioned spring’s official arrival being less than two weeks away.  “Yeah right” I thought as I zipped up my boots, donned my winter coat, wrapped my scarf around my neck and covered my still damped locs with my fresh wool cap.  The idea seemed even more far fetched as I scraped the ice and snow off my car, and slipped and slid to Nordstrom to meet my afternoon client.  But leave it to Nordstrom to save the day with their beautiful displays of flirty frocks constructed from bold printed fabrics; high glossed color blocked gladiator sandals, vivid colored accessories and yes, those were birds chirping over the intercom.  Spring IS near and I can’t wait!
