Women’s shirts are a must-have in any woman’s closet. There are a lot of popular styles of women’s shirts, like the regular cotton t-shirt, v-neck shirt, and a dress shirt that is worn on more formal occasions and in the workplace.
A dress shirt is also known as a button-down shirt. Button-down shirts look great in the workplace, as they look formal and professional. Women’s shirts normally are casual-looking, but dress shirts are a different story.
If you want to have a dress-shirt with that soft, cotton look, opt for iron-free dress shirts. Non-iron or iron free are so soft and comfortable that you want to wear them 24/7. Remember to wear the color on the inside of your blazer, and don’t let its collar lie around the collar of your blazer or jacket. White dress shirts mustn’t be machine-washed to avoid yellowing.
Women’s shirts aren’t always too casual. Wear a dress shirt, and feel the difference.
The controversial case involving a teenager who had to undergo a school bra search will soon be sent to the Supreme Court of North Carolina.
In a 2-1 ruling last year by the state Court of Appeals, the case of the school bra search at Brunswick County Academy was found in November 2008 as “degrading, demeaning and highly intrusive.”
The case involved a teenager who was allegedly asked to untuck her shirt and pull out her bra with her thumb as part of a search for pills. On Monday, the high court is hearing the appeal over several issues, including whether the search violated the Constitution’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures.
The academy is an alternative school for at-risk children.
The teenager’s legal counsel, Attorney Geeta Kapur, said she believes the court’s ruling will apply to all public school students, about 1.5 million of them, and not just those in alternative schools.
“It’s concerning to us because the population that usually attends these schools is minority, low-income and are low-performing,” said Eric Zogry, juvenile defender for the state of North Carolina. “And so the state seems to be indicating that it’s OK to relax the Constitution for this population.”
According to reports, the school principal, Sandra Robinson, acted on a tip from other students that unsafe pills were coming into the school. However, Robinson reportedly did not have any other details as to which pills were being brought in.
The fashion world is a continually changing entity that affects everything around it. When fashion ‘Da Vincis’ declare that Navy is the new Black – you can bet that everything from mobile phones to TV sets will be sporting the dark blue shade. The same goes for the business world. Gone are the boxy shapes and the enormous shoulder pads. Today’s business clothing is sleek, stylish, with understated elegance, Panache and more importantly – Today’s Business Clothing screams: I AM POWERFUL.
The world once fell in love with pink and black power suits with barely there hemlines from Chanel. Today, however, women are wearing more body conscious business clothing. Black is still a staple, but pops of color can be seen everywhere. Bright yellows and verdant greens accentuate the basic black suit. Women’s business clothing today no longer just say: “Look at me, I look beautiful!” Today’s clothes declare: “I’m your boss, I still look feminine and I’m here to stay!”
Men’s business clothing has also evolved. Gone are the boxy shapes and the fat sleeves. Today, men are wearing fitted one button jackets over sleek, neatly pressed trousers. The skinny tie is back too, but the half and full Windsor knots are still tie standards. A lot of men have also said goodbye to the three piece suits. Today’s businessman is not afraid to wear his suit jacket over jeans and loafers for a business lunch or a night on the town.
When it comes to the business attire before, a person has to remember two things, perfection and presentation. In is not just the mind that has to be presentable in the business world but also his dress sense. Business people have always been on the search to look different from their peers. Traditional business attire involve, for men, a matching coat and pant, a tie and long sleeves shirt. For women it was mostly long skirts, slacks and a blouse. They would mostly choose dull colours like black, greyish shade and white. Business attire was mostly stringent in those days.
With the change of time the business attire also seem to change. Today more companies have begun to adorn casual business attires like only a shirt with a collar, pair of loafers and cotton slacks. Although some companies don’t allow jeans and gym shoes but there are some who allow. Today many company accept casual business attire on Fridays which they call Casual Fridays. The main reason behind this casual business attire is that it creates a more relax environment. But casuals do not mean all over casuals, there are also some restrictions given by the company not to cross certain limits.
