A refined layering tee for women & more

When scrolling through style articles and columns, one of those phrases I’ve learned to ignore is “every women must have a _______ in their wardrobe.” (So much money I wasted trying to make Crisp White Shirts, or classic trench coats work for me!) The bottom line is that wardrobe “must haves” will be different for every woman, depending on your coloring, Style Personality Profile(s) and lifestyle.

This time of year, the style publications and columns are full of advice on “the perfect white tee.” While tees ARE a staple item in my wardrobe, it was only after I had my color analysis that I realized why I had such a hard with WHITE tees: they were too harsh with my coloring. But finding tees in a warmer cream or other light neutral color can be like looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. Especially one with the right cut and in a nice fabric.

Enter stage left: the refined tee

I stumbled across this one recently and immediately bought 2. It has a substantial-but-soft 100% cotton fabric, set-in sleeves, and is a nice medium length, not too long or cropped. (Lots of colors available.)

(Oops, the light beige seems to have sold out in the last 24 hours. Lots of other great colors on this one, though…)

Runs true-to-size, size up for a more relaxed fit. (Here’s a v-neck, though not available in Light Beige.)

Help for fine hair

PHYTO PARIS Phytovolume Volumizing Blow Dry Spray

For those of us with fine or thinning hair, styling products can be tricky. I find that many mousses or gels that promise to add volume ultimately weigh my hair down. This one doesn’t! It gives my hair a bit more body and volume with no weight or stickiness.

A few spritzes at the roots, then combed through before drying does the trick!
