Bold graphic blocks of color meet at an I-cord zigzag for a dramatic shout of style in this updated tee that features a straight body and rounded neck. Choose from short-sleeve or sleeveless options and mix two of your favorite colors with a bold pop of a third to coordinate with your wardrobe. Consider subtle neutrals, vivid brights, similar tones, or opposite values (such as black and white). Each triad palette will individualize your fashion statement. The matte and shine of the bamboo-cotton-blend yarn used here offers visual texture that makes the colors vibrate. (Interweave)
