Cotton Shirts II | Manolo for the Big Girl

Cotton Shirts II

Francesca promised to bring you more work-appropriate, sleeved cotton shirts, and since she is not like the man who says “I will call you,” she is actually fulfilling her promise.

Look, a cotton blouse with princess seams, available in four colors (the other three of which can take you from summer to fall):

Jones New York floral wrap top, available in sizes 14-24W. It is made of cotton but word to the wise: it is dry-clean only:

Tie-dye tee shirt can work in “business casual” environments with sleek pants and tasteful jewelry:

This attractive cotton “cardigan” has a square neckline and fly-away hem which is so attractive on many plus-size girls.  It may even work on some of the Apple girls!

Oh, and by the way, here is a pretty skirt from Talbots, terrific for work, made of cotton! (Francesca is only guessing that the lining, too, is made of cotton, but if not, one can cut out the lining and wear a cotton slip instead).

Happy shopping!

xoxo, Francesca

    Not that I would (hardly) ever be one to question your judgment in matters of style but, printed tie-dye? Really? Really really? Are you sure you have that many readers who are fourteen years old and off to their first job as assistant summer camp counselors? (Not that there would be anything wrong with it if you did; I’m just doubting that it’s an apt generalization.)

    I don’t understand this:

    “Francesca is only guessing that the lining, too, is made of cotton, but if not, one can cut out the lining and wear a cotton slip instead.”

    Is there something wrong with non-cotton lining? Why a cotton slip? I am just starting to wear skirts (over Spanx), so I want to know before I wear my new lined skirts out in public!

    Jane, here in the deep South those polyester linings in cotton or linen clothes have to come OUT. They’re like wearing saran wrap! However, I don’t buy cotton clothes that need to be dry-cleaned.
