Thermal shirts are great for the winter. Cozy, casual, warm, and perfect for errands and hanging around.

Have a favorite summer top you still want to wear as the temperatures continue to drop? We adore the Twisted Cardigan by Free People. It has an asymmetrical bottom hem and is short in general, so you'll still be able to show off some of your bottom layer. This sweater has braid detail throughout, jewel buttons at the front, a scoop neckline, and 3/4 length sleeves. Made of acrylic and wool.
November 27, 2009
The Balloon Sleeve Sweater with Ribbed Waist by Catherine Malandrino is sexy and beautiful, both of which we've certainly come to expect from one of our favorite designers. This pointelle sweater has a wide neck, ribbed waist, ruching at the cuffs, and long blouson sleeves. It is semi-sheer as well.
November 26, 2009
The Shirt Snob is taking today off due to the holiday, and we'll be back tomorrow. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
November 25, 2009
We adore sweaters like the Beau Native Sweater by Beau Soleil because there is so little thought to looking fabulous with them. Throw it on with a pair of jeans, and you can't help but look great! This sweater has a ribbed cowl neck, ribbed sides, hem, and cuffs, and short sleeves. It is made from a bamboo and cotton mix, and we love the black and platinum color combination.
Add some sparkle to your holiday parties with the Shimmer Surplice Empire Tank Top by Michael Stars. It has a crossover V-neck and ruching at the empire waist besides all that shimmer. It is one size fits most.
November 24, 2009
The Berrymore Blouse with 3/4 Sleeves by Joie is quite a feminine top with its eyelet detal at the bib and cuffs. What a surprise to see it in such a bright color instead of the typical white. This top also features a tie and 10 buttons at the split V-neck, pintucks and ruching at the bib, ruching at the shoulders and cuffs, three buttons at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It has a camisole lining and is 100% silk.
Threadless is currently having their Holiday Sale. All tees are $12 for this week only. Also check out their new designs Time Fades and I Love Rainy Days, as well as the reprints Ambition Killed the Cat and A Birth Day.
Personally, the Shirt Snob would wear a cami under the Alpine Vest by LaROK, but we do think this shirt is mighty cute. It has a open-knit ruffle overlay and a single hook-and-eye closure at the bodice, a V-neck, racer back, rolled edge at the hem, and ruched two inch straps. It's perfect for hiding your stomach if you over indulge a bit this Thanksgiving.
November 23, 2009
The Wedge Tunic by M Missoni is casual, comfortable, and awfully pretty too. It has wave stripes throughout, a boat neck, smocked elastic banding at the bottom hem, and cap sleeves. Besides vicuna shown, it is also available in royal.
We will never tire of thermal shirts, such as the Vintage Thermal Henley Top by Splendid. They are comfortable and warm, and they always look great with jeans. This one features six snaps at the neck, a rounded hem, ribbed banding at the crew neck and cuffs, woven banding at the placket, and long sleeves. It is available in two colors, paper and alpine.
We like how cleverly the colorblocking is placed on the Harpo Knot Top by Ella Moss. It hangs from the bust where there is also a knot. This blouse features a deep V-neck, 3/4 length sleeves, and is semi-sheer as well.
November 20, 2009
The Double Breasted Sweater by Juicy Couture is perfect for those times when a coat is too heavy, but you need some extra warmth. It has a bit more sophistication than your typical sweater, and it looks great with jeans or dressing down a skirt. It features five button closures and five button details at the front, a hidden zipper at the front, removable button strap at the neck, welt hip pockets, a hood, and button tab detail at the cuffs of the long sleeves. It is 100% lambswool.
The Cowl Neck Halter Sweater by Vince looks great alone, but you could easily wear it under a simple jacket. Looks great for both night and day! There is a cowl neck, racer back, and ribbing at the arm openings and hem. It is made of 100% cashmere.
November 19, 2009
Over at Threadless, they have two new designs that we want, Milk Moustache and The Night Gardener.
Check out Obnoxious Political Opinion and Sports at Busted Tees, both new this week.
Finally, Design by Humans has a cool reprint God for Birds.
The Ballerina Tee by Rachel Pally would look fabulous with a full skirt. It has an extra large scoop neck, 3/4 length sleeves, and is quite fitted. This blouse is available in two colors, carmine and dragonfly lace print.
We love the tiered draping at the back of the Shawl Back Tank by Alice + Olivia. This sleeveless top also has a crew neck. It is made from a stretchy silk, and dress is up with a cute skirt or wear it more casually with your favorite jeans.
November 18, 2009
The Prince Charming Print Tee by Free People has a gorgeous floral print and beading at both the front and back of this tunic. There is a scoop neck, pleating at the bodice, draping at the bust, and short sleeves. It is available in both black and taupe and is long at 27 inches.
When we think of Fair Isle sweaters, we picture sweaters much more chunky and heavy than the Fair Isle Snow Sweater by Free People. If you want something a little more delicate, this is for you. It has pointelle detail and metallic accents throughout, a cutout at the back, ribbed banding at the edges, and elbow-length sleeves. Made from a mix of fibers including acrylic, wool, and angora.
November 17, 2009
The Printed Georgette Top by Joie has a stunning and beautiful print, and it's in some great winter colors. There are nine buttons at the front, a split V-neck, ruching and banding at the front waist, pintucks at the bust and cuffs, ruching and two buttons at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It is 100% silk and has a jersey camisole lining.
The Open Back Tee by Geren Ford is a great way to show off your back, but if you keep a jacket on a work, you can wear it there as well. It features a crew neck, a seam at the waist, and pleating at the deep crossover V-back. It is available in grey and black.

This year seemed to have flown by, but now is the time to start thinking about the holidays. More specifically, what you are going to buy everyone! Our shopping guide is all about tees because size wise they are easier to buy, and it's easier to know what type of t-shirt someone would like as opposed to what their high fashion style is. Most of these companies also offer tees in men's sizes in case you want to buy for your fathers, brothers, or significant others. And don't forget to check out our archives as well. There are tons of other great companies that we've written about in the past.
Another option is always a gift card. You can consider the above companies as well as the high fashion ones, such as our favorite boutiques: Shop Bop, Max Studio, Free People, Tobi, and Revolve Clothing. These are also good places to buy a blouse if you really want to get one for someone.
Happy shopping readers!
The Audlin Blouse by Theory is the perfect blouse for work, and one that you will be able to wear for a long time. It has five hidden buttons and pintucking down the front, a frayed edge and single button at the collar, a shirttail hem, and two inch banding, knife pleats and a single button at the cuffs of the long sleeves. It is 100% silk and semi-sheer.
We adore the Lace Up Tank by Robert Rodriguez because of the sexy edge the satin lacing detail adds to this simple tank. This simple ribbed tank also has satin trim at the scoop neck, racer back, and arm openings as well as 1.75 inch straps. Made from a cotton and polyester blend.

Fiftyseven-thirtythree is a t-shirt and hoodie online store that we recently discovered.

They also sell a couple of dresses and men's items too.
November 12, 2009
The tiered, mixed chain necklace on the Crystal Necklace Tank by Young Fabulous & Broke is detachable, so you can easily dress this tank down by taking it off. The necklace has pearl and crystal details, and the tank has a scoop neck, racer back, and 1.25 inch straps. Would look great with heels and your favorite jeans.
November 11, 2009

Plaid shirts have been popular lately, but how about wearing this look in outerwear?

Snorg Tees has a new design that we like, Binary 101. They also have a Thanksgiving tee, Hand Turkey.
Threadless has some new reprints including Stone Jungle, In Case of Fire, and Runnin' Rhino.
Finally, Cotton Factory has new designs out, and we think Llamacorn is pretty funny.

It has a lined hood, ribbed banding with a rolled edge at the V-neck, and long raglan sleeves. It is available in two colors, glacier and aubergine.

The Sarah Tunic by Theory looks like a basic top, but it has lace surrounding the exposed front zipper that you cannot see unless you are pretty close. There's also a wide neck and short sleeves on this tunic, and it is made from a pima cotton and modal blend.
November 3, 2009
