The Softest Tees II: Clu

Yesterday, I mentioned there were two soft tees brands I love. The first is Splendid, the second one is Clu. Clu's shirts are so so so soft and light to wear. Clu's shirts usually have some sort of special design to it, but they're still relatively simple shirts. Nice, casual and relaxing. I first learnt of this brand when I went to Barneys NY. Later on at the beginning of fall, I bought a Clu long-sleeved pleated shirt and have been loving this brand ever since.

Clu makes some basic tees, but they're not totally boring. The pink tee comes in many colours, and there are actually ribbed banding around the sleeves and on the back.

These shirts are quite similar to some of the ones by Splendid, but I think Clu pays more attention to details and cuttings. (Again, please do wear pants underneath such tops!)

Doesn't this remind you of a tent? I can't decide whether it's a top or a dress but it sure looks comfy though.

Such sweet, super casual dresses. Both colours give off a summer, relaxed vibe. Looking at the pictures, wearing leggings, boots and pumps with the dresses do make the dress look a less California-ish than if worn with flip-flops -which instantly adds style points.

I LOVE this top. It's so perfectly casual-looking without looking like any old tee. I esp love that silverish grey (left.) It's such a perfect shade. I've been staring at these shirts are quite awhile, (a better alternative to doing econ homework.) Sigh, if only Clu was available in the shops where I live...

Like Splendid, Clu is pretty expensive for a cotton shirt. Actually, Clu is even more expensive than Splendid, but Clu does have more interesting designs. Anyone tried on or love Clu shirts too?


Again, most of the photos are from
shopbop.com. Go check out more Clu clothes there.

I'm not really into Clu, but I love Splenid. I also love Michael Stars, and am shocked you wouldn't mention his tees. I'm very petite, and other tops tend to be baggy on me, but Michael Stars are perfect. I have at least 20, and woluld recommend you trying them out (they have some intresting styles) and not all are shiny.

Hey! I'm loving the shirts! Check out Unsungdesigners.com...there's a brand called Mark and Estel that looks VERY similar to these shirts for reasonable prices. Here's a link: http://shop.unsungdesigners.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=1357

Some great ideas and nice shots. Personally, I prefer the dressy shirt (the Nara Camicie post from the other week was brilliant!) but tunics and peasant shirts are very comfortable, and can be done in a great casual look.

I'm surprised though by the lack of vibrancy in the samples. Is there some style choice of which I'm not aware, only fades or soft colours for the soft shirts? Why not a strong green to go with the brown leggings and pumps?

Also, this does not seem to be as popular in the States as on the Continent. Any thoughts?

Clu shirts come in lots of colors, not just muted ones.
Shopbop (where the pictures are from) just doesn't seem to carry any of them. There tend to be more bright colors in the spring.

CLU dresses/tents are the most comfortable things ever. perhaps not the most flattering, but comfort does prevail on some occassions...

The anti-anxiety medicine xanax is wholly capable of facilitating your war against anxiety as it is the most widely recognized medication to treat anxiety disorders, especially generalized anxiety disorders and altogether Xanax can treat a whole lot of anxieties related to panic disorders and depression. Before you move on to administer Xanax and treat your anxiety, get hold of Xanax tidbits from the site http://www.pill-care.com

I never go to my doctor anymore asking for pain killers prescription and then be turned down at the end, all I do is order online from www.medsheaven.com hassle free and low cost, they have three pain killers listed on their website which are ultram tramadol celebrex that you buy, and the best part is no prescription required!!!
