I’ve been accused of holding out important styling information. Which, if you know me or read this blog regularly, I take great offense to. Ordinarily, I am generous with my styling advice and shopping tips (anybody ever asked me to validate a trend, you probably regretted it around the 6th or 7th text!)
Sadly, however, it’s true. I didn’t let you guys in on a big one…The Zoe Report Box of Style. I’m sorry. Not to make excuses…but, when it comes to fashion, I’m a try-anything-once kinda gal, so I wasn’t intentionally keeping something close to the chest. I simply didn’t know you all would be interested.
The err in my ways…it is truly an amazing (AAAAA-MAZING) box of items curated by designer and celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe and her team of style experts. To read more about the contents of the box and my experience, check out my new blog. You will receive new post updates sent directly to your inbox, when you subscribe in the upper right-hand corner of the new site.
Thanks for reading! ~Jenn
The t-shirt. It’s classic and super versatile, with endless variations and possibilities, a staple in all closets. Yesterday Kirsty and I styled some of our favorite t-shirts 4 different ways. Today we are compiling our hot list of must-have tees.
The basic classic: This one is a great price. It wears well, and has a great slim fit that is perfect for maxi skirts, flare leg jeans, tailored skirts. Kirsty also owns it in white, which is not see-through, but still soft and wearable like your “favorite old t-shirt” should be.
Best In-Class (aka. own multiples): This was in yesterday’s post, but it’s a favorite so we had to share it again. Both of us have this one in multiple colors. Kirsty even has it in multiple sizes, which she wears (depending on her mood) more fitted or flowy. This is the softest tee and is universally flattering; the slight flutter of the sleeves and the slouchy pocket make it unique, yet it’s styling stands the test of time.
Below are a few more favorites…we thought you should know.
Best Long Length: For those taller gals, or long-torso’ed goddesses, this is my ultimate favorite t-shirt. I love the scoop neck, mirrored in the shirt-tail hemline, and with just the right amount of drape. Also, the perfect thickness – not too bulky yet not totally sheer, and it washes well. An all-around fantastic tee (I have several colors). And…did I mention it comes in sizes ranging from xxs to xl (it runs true to size)?!
Splurge-Worthy: This classic t-shirt is definitely worth its price tag. A great all-around fit with awesome slub-texture that adds interest while keeping it from being too sheer. It also holds its shape and washes well…everything you would expect from Rag & Bone.
Clever Message: This tee says it all – Audrey had it right, Paris is always is a good idea. This tee is chic regardless of how you style it. Classicly simple when paired with dark denim and a pump, or whimsical tucked into a pleated skirt and worn with ballet flats. Either way, channel your inner French girl.
Best under $20: Great fit, 100% cotton, and a fun selection of colors; it’s hard to beat Madewell’s tee (especially for the price). I have several of these tees, wash and run them through the dryer – so easy!
Best Stripe: While the blue and white stripe is classic, I’m loving the side knot design, which creates a great, shape effortlessly. A stripe tee is a wardrobe staple, easy worn alone yet so fashionable when paired under a blazer or worn with a patterned or colorful pant.
That’s our t-shirt round-up. What’s your fave? How are you wearing you’re classic t-shirt?
Happy Shopping and thanks for reading! ~Jenn & Kirsty
If you have been following along the past couple of weeks, you know that I am Lovin’ the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale selection this year. The shopping has been intense – I’ve been there nearly every day shopping with clients and finding the very best pieces to highlight here. While much of the inventory is out-of-stock, there are still a few gems to be found. Remember quantities are very limited and prices go up August 3!
This shirt is so flattering on – I had nearly every single one of my clients try it on! The zip in the back is completely unique and gives the shirt a more fitted look. Size are limited – snap this one up before it’s too late!
The perfect slip-on, flat bootie for fall. Hitting right at the ankle, these pair well with jeans and skirts alike!
The color and cut of these skinny jeans are spot on – just as you would expect from Rag & Bone. Wear this fatigue color as you would a neutral (like grey and black); it pairs well with just about everything in your fall wardrobe.
I have been eying this backpack throughout the spring and summer – I can’t believe the sale price?!
This romper (yes – it is shorts), is a flirty twist on a DVF classic wrap dress. With the quintessential geometric print, it is classic yet totally on-trend.
The perfect, dark denim classic, straight jean – I should know, my husband may be my most difficult “client.”
This zip-up jacket is so easy to dress up and down. In particular, I love the color-blocking detail on the back.
You had me at retro sneaker. Worn with shorts now and paired with your favorite denim in the fall, you cannot go wrong with a classic New Balance tennis shoe.
My daughter lives in jeggings. So easy to pull on and so comfy – the pink and purple pattern definitely scored points as well.
I want these for myself (no big shocker there!). Classic Vans at an awesome price.
Such a cute color combination, I’m only sad they didn’t make them in bigger sizes.
I couldn’t resist this one – we have some serious Star Wars fans in my family. And graphic tees make back-to-school so much more fun.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my sale selections. Which are you favorite? What did you bring home? I would love your feedback. As always, thanks for reading! ~Jenn

I’m lovin’ dark denim, slim pants, leather sneakers, and quilted jackets for the upcoming season.
