5 Summer Tees that’ll Make You Smile

Summer tees make me happy. Although we just had a winter storm in Seattle today, summer is going to be here soon, at least I hope so. I’m already planning my next beach vacation and finding tees I can live in during the hot sunny months. Tees can be great year-round staple and my favorites are chic enough to wear with a blazer and heels or a flirty skirt. I am sure you all have the essential basic tees in multiple colors in your closet, but you really need a couple of these playful options below.

Bowie Let’s Dance Tee//Free People//$68.00

When you see the line “let’s dance”, it really makes you wanna dance, right? The skinny font of the letters and the semi-sheer lightweight texture make it a perfect tee for the hot season. It also makes me want to pair it with a flowy skirt I can twirl in circles with. The subtle pink hue and irresistibly soft & stretchy fabric bring the visual and physical comfiness to this simplistic summer tee. Slide it on, hit the music, and let the dance start!

Bésame Graphic Tee//SINCERELY JULES//$49.00

What I love about this tee is the bold romanticism expressed in the cheeky graphic print. An easy-fitting crewneck cotton tee can be dressed casually tucking it into your favorite denim, or city girl-like outfit by pairing it with a suede midi skirt and a pair of heels in the same color as the bubbly “Bésame mucho”. How can’t a sweet lip-lock make you smile? And how can’t the chic summer tee with “Bésame mucho” make your day? Just want love and kisses.

Tropicool Tee//Sol Angeles//$78.00

Feeling cool and also being cool in the tropical season is the most ideal. The Tropi-cool summer tee makes the magic happen for the integration of the cotton texture, silken font, and words-merging trick. Engaging the tee with a pair of silver-frame sunglasses, denim mini skirt and black studded booties, you will just reach the peak of its coolness.

While Vitamin C is an  all-time essential to our body but, “Vitamin Sea”, is also needed to keep us happy.  It seems just too-good-to-be-true, but the sea and ocean are essential to our well being too. The good news is, you can wear the “Vitamin Sea” under the sun, by the water, or walking through the city. Simple color, simple graphic print but with a refreshing message. Wearing the “Vitamin Sea” while thinking of Vitamin C sounds like a plan for a chill day!

Another comfy all-cotton tee, featuring a front tropical-inspired ‘Dreamer’ graphic, is a top alternative summer tee to add to your closet. With floral embroidered accents, the tee gets a bit more feminine touch on top of the overall lighthearted street style. Unlike the other 4 tees, this one is less bodycon but more feathery and floaty, which allows you to have big movements without worrying about the tightness or stickiness from sweating. A perfect smock on top of bikinis for strolling on the beach. Never forget to dream!
