Our twelfth POW (Piece of the Week) is the cabi Fall 2016 Beyond Tee. This versatile paneled tunic tee, can be anything from a drafting vest, to a wrap top, to a top with a cape! I showed you eleven different ways to wrap and style it and seven different outfit ideas (with some variations based on how you style the tee). With all the different ways style this pieces, we went from a fiery femme fatale, to a fuzzy curvy look, to an elegant caped special occasion outfit, to casual layers, and a high contrast and highly comfortable work look. The Beyond Tee is by far my most versatile POW piece ever!
Without further ado, let’s review this Beyond Tee “week!” Which outfit is your favorite? Which styling technique do you prefer for the tee?

There are so many great outfits in the POW and such versatility with the Beyond Tee! But, this time I do have a favorite. I adore the elegant Chic Classy and Faux Fur Sunday Best. However, the Fiery Femme Fatale Date Night and Black, White, and Comfy Manic Monday are close contenders. Which is your favorite?

Unfortunately, I wrote this after the cabi Fall 2016 season has closed, which means this amazing top is no longer available via the traditional means. It is also such a unique piece that I’ve been unable to find an alternative to suggest. However, if you must have this piece, here are some ways you may be able to get it:
- First, always try your stylist. She may have a sample available, know of another stylist with a sample available, or have other ways to get it. If you do not have one you may reach out to my stylist Joni Allen (via email or phone: 770 502-5243 [call or text]), Leigh Cheatwood-Harris (a friend’s stylist whom I have worked with also and can recommend: email and her site), or find a cabi stylist near you.
- Second, check out resale, such as the Facebook groups or apps that allow people to sell their cabi or ebay.
- Third, wait until August, when the outlets will get the Fall 2016 line and to go or call an outlet to see if they have this. Many outlets will allow you to order over the phone and then ship it to you.
