Tam is at her best with accessible, easy-to-wear clothes like the Chrysler-print dresses and black leather jackets and skirts that opened her show. There was also an interesting matte jersey dolman dress with a metal choker that looked much fresher than her heavily beaded, overly ornate looks. A white skirt with a sparse, geometric sprinkling of crystals, worn with a simple berry cardigan, was far chicer than the overdone pink and blue computer-print sequined looks. In Tam's case, less is often more.
