Shopping Guide: 10 Light & Loose Summer Tees
I’m having an unimaginably difficult time believing that spring is upon us, let alone the fact that summer is a little more than a month away, but the weather forecast says it’s true: it’s getting Hot in Herre. Yeah, just a little 2002 throwback right there. Anyway, I’m not really an outdoors person, so with the change of seasons I’m mostly concerned with what I’m going to wear. Like, really concerned — I live in constant fear of being too hot or too cold. When the temperatures start hitting the top of the chart, it comes time to keep things cool with cutoffs and tank tops. Thing is, I have an irrational neuroses about my armpits: I want them safely hidden in a sleeve of sorts. This gets a little weird, especially in the context of pounding the boiling pavement of a New York City summer, so I’ve taken to investing in a certain type of top. I like them short-sleeved (but not capped!), loose-fitting, and diaphanous in easy, breezy fabrics, but not too sheer or gauzy lest they be too easily destroyed. Is that too much to ask? Whether you share my armpit-phobia or are just in search of a more work-friendly alternative to casual tanks, look no further.
