Trend Alert: Gimme a T
January 30, 2007
The starlets have it: spring’s hottest look is the oversize tee-shirt worn over a pair of leggings.
If this gives you uncomfortable flashbacks to the seventh-grade picture day, you’re not alone. If you dare venture into this trend, we suggest that you aim to copy the length, rather than the volume, of the look. (If the starlets can’t make a floppy shirt look good, there’s no hope for the rest of us.)
For those who have outgrown the juniors’ section and who find more comfort in a pair of slender jeans than a pair of stretch pants, the tee can become more decorative and less protective. Look for gathering details in a fresh color, or find the casual glamour of dolman sleeves. Either look would be suitable under a blazer at the office, or with dark denims for evening. That, in fact, is the style lesson most worth cribbing from the rich and famous – if you wear it with confidence, you can wear it almost anywhere.
