Oh, T-shirts. The seemingly simple wardrobe staples of white and black tees may seem like a no-brainer, but any real fashionista knows that like jeans, it's extremely difficult to find a perfectly cut T-shirt: either the sleeves are too long, the body's too boxy, the hem is too short, the neck's too wide or the fabric is too stiff or sheer. Finding a T-shirt with the right cut, length, fabric and style is like finding the holy grail - of fashion, that is. And as close as I've come, I've yet to find it. But even close contenders can show you the difference they make to your wardrobe almost instantly. While the quest for the perfect tee continues, take some time to enjoy fun and colourful tees that are comfy style additions for warm weather. It's pretty hard to go wrong, but make sure the T-shirt fits properly. It's always better to go for something with a softer wash that makes it look a little worn-in. For example, take a hip graphic tee, tuck it into a high-waisted pencil skirt, throw on a cardigan and - voila! - you have a fun office look. For something cooler, wear an oversized printed tee, cinch it at the waist with a belt and pair it with either little denim shorts or skinny jeans. Have a loud and colourful tee that you love? Wear it out for a night on the town with lots of colourful accessories for a comfy, casual look that's stylish all the same. Lynn and Kim (right) both have on cool tees (Lynn has rolled her sleeves up) and they've decked themselves out in a melange of plastic jewellery that adds colour to their look. Another style tip is to pick one colour from the tee and accentuate it by wearing shoes the same colour. It's a simple way to create an eclectic but still visually cohesive outfit. Although printed tees are a staple in the wardrobes of most guys, take a cue from Clinton (left) and slice off your sleeves for an alternative look. And don't be afraid to go for something loud. Luckily, Hong Kong is a T-shirt paradise. Check out boutiques such as Juice (Unit A, 2/F, 53 Paterson Street, Causeway Bay, tel: 2881 0173) as well as i.t for Japanese graphic tees. Almost every street boutique is chock-full of T-shirts. Or, if you don't mind shopping online, one of my favourite style sites is www.thecobrasnake.com , which offers limited-edition tees that are witty and very cool. They come up with a new creation every few weeks, so check once in a while. One last caution: no matter what, make sure that if you buy a T-shirt printed with a slogan, it makes sense to you and is also grammatically correct. It may not bother many people, but to me it's an absolute no-no.
