If your spring & summer wardrobe looks anything like mine, it’s probably pretty t-shirt-centric. For everyday casual wear, it’s hard to beat a classic tee for effortless casual style. But as much as we love our trusty tees, sometimes we want to elevate our everyday look without sacrificing comfort and ease. That’s where chic, easy-to-style tops come in. These versatile pieces offer the same effortless feel as a tee, but with added refinement and sophistication.
But first though, I’d like to say thank you for all of the kind and supportive comments on my last post. I truly appreciate your compassion and kind thoughts.
Easy to style tops & elevated tees
I just purchased this smocked cotton-blend tee and love it! It’s lightweight but pretty opaque, and has a lovely texture and neat look. It’s a more fitted piece (though not super snug) and I sized up to a Medium for a bit more ease in the bust. This “Gesso” color is a soft, creamy slightly off-white. It’s also available in black, sizes XXS-XL.
Short sleeve sweaters in lightweight knits like this one are another refined tee shirt alternative. Yes, it’s wool, but hear me out…lightweight wool really can be comfortable in warmer conditions. It breathes, wicks moisture, doesn’t tend to pick up odors (which makes it great for travel). This sweater is washable, and available in several colors, sizes P – XXL.
I love this whimsical music print tee, which I think would look really cool layered underneath a blazer.
Eyelet is great for keeping cool, but can skew a bit twee. The slim elbow sleeves on this top help balance the eyelet detail here, and the navy color keeps the overall look more grownup and refined. It’s 100% cotton, available in several colors in Misses, Petite, Plus & Plus Petite sizes.
