MC STYLE TIP #12 | Unders

MC STYLE TIP#12: Opt to wear an undershirt whenever possible. We should never see through a button-down shirt, and wearing a layer beneath will protect and extend the life of your shirts.

One of my major pet peeves - the crew undershirt exposed at the opening of the button down. Has MC officially endorsed the v-neck? Or the a-shirt?

MC endorses wearing the undershirt that is most appropriate for the outer-shirt you're wearing. Yes, you're right in saying that the undershirt should never show. So, if you're wearing a button-down shirt closed to the top with a necktie, opt for a crew neck undershirt. A summery short sleeved shirt would call for an A-shirt. The v-neck is always a great option for under a v-neck sweater....or dead sexy on its own with a pair of jeans. Don't be shy.

I'm loving the tips!

But, as you might suspect, I'm at odds with #12. Why should we never see through a button-down shirt? Similarly, why shouldn't we see undergarments peeking out (at the neck, etc.)? These aren't tips so much as rules, and I'd like to keep my options open... to reserve the right to showcase the layering of outer garments and underwear... to feature see-through when it seems appropriate or particularly piquing... xo

Fair enough. You're right...#12 is a rule, not a tip. That said, MC maintains that rules are meant to be broken. And for skillful breaking, we must first learn the rules. When you're ready for a good rule-break, please let me know and I'll make note here on the blog. We celebrate the rules whether in-tact or broken!
