Tee Time!


I’m a sucker for dresses, cardigans, & big jewelry. There’s no question about it. There are some staple pieces that I love to have en masse, including cardigans, ankle pants, & blouses. However, one wardrobe must-have that I haven’t embraced so much is the classic t-shirt!

(gasp)

…Perhaps this is because I always relied on the cozy ease of a t-shirt for my sleepwear & not so much to mix with my day pieces. T-shirts are an easy way to play off of busy patterns, bold textures, & trendy companions, which is why I’m featuring some great deals on colorful, classic, & trendy t-shirts.

SHOP: navy crewneck Hampton tee @New York & Company (available in 4 colors in size XS – XXL), blue pocket tee @LOFT (available in 4 colors in size XS – XXL), coral square-neck trim tee @dressbarn (available in six colors in size XS – XL, shop 1X – 3X here, pale blue v-neck tee @Gap (available in 17 colors in size XS – XXL), A New Day white crewneck tee @Target (available in 4 colors in size XS – XXL), & green jersey tee @H&M (available in 7 colors in size XXS – XXL).

No matter what your favorite neckline is, t-shirts really are for everyone. There are so many styles to consider from crewneck to v-neck to square-neck to split-neck, which is what makes t-shirts so versatile & compatible to offset a busy look to keep in minimal with all solids. Any of these tees could be worn with jeans, tucked into a skirt, with printed pants, or under a sleeveless dress, creating a new layer of possibilities in outfit building. Consider coordinating any of these items to build your next comfy t-shirt chic look:

SHOP: beaded flower necklace @dressbarn, gold chain choker @Forever 21, blue paisley Audrey ankle pant @New York & Company, Match Made midi skirt @ModCloth, green gingham sandals @GOjane, & leopard Pixie pant @Old Navy.

Black Friday Sale Update: Get To The Gap For Sales Up To 60% Off!


60% off sure sounds good to me, especially with items from Gap!  I picked out these tops, which are fun basics to layers with sweaters, blazers, jackets, vests, & cardigans.  The Isabel Marant (Product) Red T ($22.46) is not just a comfy, stylish tee, but 50% of profits from the shirt go to benefit the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa. So since the shirt is reduced in price from $24.95 & you’re getting a big sale discount, buy a few & give them to friends while helping to support the good cause!

I recently posted about the myths behind turtlenecks, but here I’ve selected the rayon turtleneck ($12.48) in acai berry, which also comes in six other colors to mix & match with your corduroy mini skirt & boots, or with trousers & shooties.  Another classic basic to keep an eye out for this season is a long-sleeve v-neck T ($14.50), like the one pictured in optic white.  It’s also available in four other colors, in sizes XS to XXL.

Show off your feminine side in the printed short-sleeve T ($17.46) & bring out the fun colors in the top with some plum-colored jeans or red skinny pants!  If you’re stomped on a gift, but have a friend who loves graphic tees, check out the New York City graphic T ($19.99) which is perfect for any time of the year.  Break out the long-sleeved top for underneath it, or show a rocker side with leather pants & a boyfriend blazer with bangles.  Happy Styling!
