Q. I live in t-shirts. Can I wear them to the office? How about parties?

A. Yes and yes. Tees have become like jeans: accepted just about everywhere, certifiably stylish, incredibly dressed up, and available at all prices. But don't try to sneak in one of those schlumpy, oversize horrors in dorky pastels or a logo tee from your last trip to the Magic Kingdom. I'm talking about a nice, semifitted top in a sophisticated hue, with serious design details like draping, pleats, and gathers. For work, slide a tee under your basic office suit or jacket; for evening, consider one that's been lengthened into an elegant dress. And if you're going places this summer, tees can be versatile, packable, and wonderfully wrinkle-free.
