Hello SOTGC community,
Summer brings on high temperatures and scorching sunlight. No one wants to sweat more than they have to. A critical part to that can depend on the type of fabric that you wear. You want to make sure to wear the lightest fabrics as possible to ensure that you’ll be as cool as you can be.
Tees and tanks are usually the go-to staple for men and women alike during summertime. You don’t want to hassle with layering, jackets, vest, cardigans, etc. Even the thinnest of fabrics can become stuffy if you double them up. Why not take a breather by wearing a light yet fashionable tank or tee?
Simple tanks and tees can be paired with shorts, skirts, pants, and leggings during both the summer and winter. It is definitely worth investing in these closet staples. In the summer you can wear them alone and as the weather begins to get chilly again you can definitely wear them under sweaters, cardigans, blazers, jackets, and more. There doesn’t need to be a lot of bling, color, or pizazz to make a tee or tank worth your money. A subtle tee with clean cut lines and great fit can be a statement all on its own.
You can also bling out your outfit with statement jewelry, pants, and even a statement bag. The neutral, solid colors and also the minimalism of lightweight summer tees and tanks are the perfect backdrop for the louder pieces in your wardrobe. Like the saying goes, sometimes less is more!
