You may not think of me as a T-shirt person darlings, but nothing could be further from the truth. I am enamored with today’s tees because they are both versatile and many reflect what is on my mind! I call them ‘statement tees’

Best of all, these tees aren’t to be paired with sweatpants; these statement tees can be worn with pleated skirts, tailored slacks, Bermuda shorts, or just about anything else your heart desires.
