Boat neck styles have always appealed to me as the neckline looks great under a jacket and highlights your statement necklaces.
T-shape tops are boat neck style but have increases for sleeves, thereby looking like the letter "T" .
Another great feature spares knitters the headache of following neck shaping in intricate pattern stitches.
Casting off in a straight line becomes a no brainer, a good thing when you want an easy knitting project or for beginners.
The straight cast-off edge also allows you to add interesting finishes such as lace and ribbon.

The garment highlighted on the first page had yarn lacing on the shoulders, which is fine but there are so many other creative ways to finish your garment.
Zippers are a prime example, especially decorative ones available in neon or with rhinestones.
Grommet tape can be fun with contrasting colours.
Even though many of the examples illustrated are with woven garments, these can be applied to knits and will definitely give a polished look to the garment.
Keep in mind that you want quality ribbons and trim. Nothing says homemade faster than poorly made trims.
But most of all, be brave in your choices - it's those special touches that bring on the compliments.
