LET’S TALK ABOUT THE VERSATILE T-SHIRT!!

LET’S TALK TEE!!

For most, when we hear about a “TEE” we immediately think casual. Right?

Well, I’ve developed an entirely different outlook along with a great appreciation for the good-ole “TEE.”

I now call it MY versatili-TEE! 😉

A “t-shirt,” as the majority calls it, is a fashion piece that I consider a must-have for everyones closet. The versatility and effortless qualities, makes it an intelligent wardrobe purchase.

Let’s look at the pro’s:

~ They can be worn with a suit, skirt, jeans, slacks, shorts, under a blazer, a tunic, a dress, etc…

~ The colors are limitless.

~ They look great with every type of accessory. It all depends on the look your going for.

~ The quality options are huge.

~ The price point can be from as low as a few bucks into the hundreds.

~ It’s a fashion option that anyone can have, regardless of your budget! (Now that makes it CHICified!).

SHAYZON TIP:

When selecting a “TEE” always, always check for the quality of the fabric. The quality can make or brake the final look.

Here are a few things I call the “quick check”:

~ When you pull on both sides of the shirt, does it leave an indentation where your finger are?

If so… it’s a No No.

~ Does the fabric look like it will become dull and fuzzy after a few washes?

If so… it’s a No No.

~ If the fabric is finely ribbed but doesn’t have strong elasticity to the shirt itself.

It’s a No No.

Pairing a “TEE” with something dressy, is a CHICified fashion move. It adds personality and creates a balance to your ensemble.

A “TEE” makes an outfit not too dressy, not too casual, but simply effortless.

BODY BASHING??

BODY BASHING!

We do it to ourselves time and time again.

wpid-7b677b058a685073706d26b9f847d8f3.jpg

The realization of Body Bashing hit me a bit ago after speaking with a few ladies who shared that they were really unhappy with their bodies.

These beautiful ladies were having great difficulties with finding clothes that they thought looked good on them.  What I thought was most unfortunate, was that they all ended our conversations with a good dose of BODY BASHING. 🙁

Ok, so first things first, what is BODY BASHING?

wpid-3453d7e72ea8d489513f8010d1f9f482.jpg

It’s being unhappy and critical with the body you’re in; your shape, your height, your proportions and your size.

Well the goal of CHICified is always to put as positive, informative and uplifting perspective on things we care about (which is you, our readers).

I’ve narrowed it down and there are two times when this horrible bashing takes place the most.

While shopping and while getting dressed.

What many of us don’t realize while shopping is the fact that the clothes we are trying on or wanting to wear, wasn’t uniquely made for our specific bodies.  What we do is look at a piece we like, try to fit it and become extremely hard on ourselves if it’s not a perfect fit.

All of our lives we have been doing, what I call, Russian Roulette Shopping.

Russian Roulette Shopping is hit or miss shopping. Honestly, we are the ones that get the hit when we miss! It should actually be the opposite! If a designer or store doesn’t have the clothes that’s flattering to your body, then they missed (having you as a buyer) and you need to hit the road (happily to the many other available options out there). 🙂

If we begin to approach shopping in a new and CHICified frame of mind, we will focus on finding designers and stores that carry pieces that are cut to fit our individual body types.

It may take a bit of effort to lock down all of the ones you love, BUT imagine the fun and fulfillment that you’ll have. Confidently walking into a store, knowing that this is your spot, and it’s all just a matter of picking what you want and not what you have to settle for.

ps. Remember the HUGE options that we will always have when in a pinch… a seamstress and the local dry cleaners for tailoring and alterations.

LOVE THE BODY YOU’RE IN, WE’RE ALL BEAUTIFUL!

ENJOY THE PROCESS!
