3.1 Phillip Lim Leather and Silk-Armure Top: A League of Its own


I never thought a baseball tee could be anything even close to chic. 3.1 Phillip Lim is teaching me to expect the unexpected! While Alexander Wang‘s football-inspired leather bustier/sweatshirt hybrid (out of his Spring 2010 collection) didn’t do much for me, this sport and sophistication blend is right up my alley. Raglan sleeves have never looked so good.

That’s because it’s as easy as a tee; with jeans or skinny pants, you’re fab, not forced. Deep lapis-colored silk-armure has a laid-back flow to it and soft caramel leather sleeves, curving from delicate strips at the shoulders, is somehow thoroughly organic. Plus, there’s something about bunched-up leather sleeves that screams “right now.” Even if you’ve never picked up a Whiffle ball, this top poses the ideal opportunity to be out there and show them what you’ve got. On Net-a-Porter for $725.

Pair with: Chloé‘s ankle boots have structure and shine to keep the look polished. A wooden wedge with a heel tab is the way to go with a sporty-elegant top. At Saks Fifth Avenueicon for $995.
