Tops - Tees / T-shirts

T-shirts also know as tees, come in a range of necklines, cuts, fabrics and lengths.
Aim to have a selection of t-shirts that can be worn with casual outfits right through to workwear outfits and dressy outfits.
A t-shirt can be the ideal match for a workwear skirt under a blazer. The same t-shirt can be coordinated with a casual pair of shorts or trousers. T-shirts can be worn tucked in for a smart style or worn loose for a more casual style. Get creative and knot your t-shirt at the side or at the back to create a more fitted silhouette.

Tops - Shirts

The oldest piece of clothing ever discovered was a linen shirt in an Egyptian tomb from the First Dynasty. A shirt has long been the fashion item of choice.
If you consider yourself not a shirt person I would suggest you aren't choosing the right shirt.
Shirts are available in many fabrics, styles and arm lengths. Choose shirts made from one fabric over mix blended fabrics.
Draping is important, consider your shape when choosing your shirts. Shirts look best with a little room to breathe.

Pants - Jeans and Trousers

'Pants' is the umbrella term to include; Jeans and Trousers (UK term). Jeans are trousers made from denim, durable and easily dressed up or down. There are many jeans on the market - find jeans that you are motivated to wear, that suit your form and are made from fabric that will last. 
Trousers come in a spectrum of fabrics - choose fabrics that are a close weave - not dense.
A good rule is to opt for non-blended fabrics. The blends often have different wear and care properties, shrinkage, resistant to wear etc. Check seams are well made.
