Favorite Summer Tees
The warmer months are all about ease- throw it on and go, look great, but feel comfy. No one wants to fool with complicated looks when it's upwards of 80 degrees. It's enough to keep our hair from frizzing and makeup from running. I've compiled a little list of my very favorite throw-on tees and I'm telling you why I love them.
The Peplum Tee , $53
Let's start with one that's just as stylish as it is comfy- The Peplum Tee. I love this tee for it's fabric and wearability, not to mention great price. Made of 100% cotton, this flattering V-neck tee washes perfectly, and is ever so slightly cropped, with a relaxed peplum detail. I love that it's not fitted, so I can have pizza or taco night with no shame!
OK, I know this is a pricey little tee shirt. But, let me tell you it's worth it! If you're a graphic tee girl, this is a splurge you won't regret. They come regular length, and I cut mine -like the photo above- right at hip level. I'll do a blog soon on how to cut tees. (There's no exact science, and it's even better if it's not perfect.) This cotton/poly blend tee is suuuuper soft and suuuuper versatile. I wear it with workout leggings to walk the dogs, boyfriend jeans and heels to dinner, or sneakers and shorts to work/ weekend, and it's the perfect tee to dress up with a fun sparkly skirt or leather pants for a fun night out! Need I say more? Want comfort that oozes style? This is your tee.
If you've owned one, YOU KNOW. We sell these out and fast in every color we get them in, and the company makes new colors every year, thankfully. This dusted almond is the perfect non-white neutral to pair with just about anything. But, we do have white too if you need a great white tee. They run slightly oversized, so size down if you want it more fitted, and size up if you like it relaxed and roomy. Wash and dry over and over and wear with just about anything! And at $40- buy all the colors!
I am just crazy about tie dye! It's a fun, bohemian print, and a great way to make your look a little cool and edgy while being covered and comfy. This cute tee is a rayon/spandex blend, which is one of my favorite blends simply because it's so dang soft! This top is has a matching skirt that I love to wear together with sneakers or heels, but you can totally wear it on it's own (and even untie that knot if you like!) for a more casual approach with jeans or shorts. A fun addition to any wardrobe!
Our dressier tee, the Clare Top was named after me since I kept insisting one of my favorite designers make their Crop Top in a style just 3 inches longer for those of us that want to cover a little more. They finally did, and this fabulous ponte knit top can get as dressy or as casual as you need- the perfect wardrobe staple. Throw it on with ponte knit pants as a set, wear it with distressed denim or over a silk skirt for cocktail.
Welcome, Summer! Another light pink neutral, because it looks so great with a tan, and the little gold evil eye detail on the pocket adds a unique touch that is understated and cool. Pair this relaxed style with jeans and sneaks, cut off shorts and sandals, or under a blazer with white jeans to kick it up a notch. I love this tee for it's unique touches, perfect neutral color, and flattering V neck, relaxed cut.
