It seems like every time I pick up a fashion magazine with the blurb “What Men Want” emblazoned on the cover (which, let’s face it, is pretty much every glossy mag since the dawn of time), I am once again reminded that those smelly boys love us most when we’re relaxing in just our tee shirts and jeans.   Now, my first thought after reading this – the “just be yourself” of fashion advice – is always…


‘Cause the last time my husband’s jaw dropped in reaction to one of my ensembles, I’m pretty sure it was in reaction to something with a little less cotton content.

But, who am I to argue against statistics gathered by the Mensa Members over at Cosmo?  So, while I won’t even attempt to recommend clothing items as personal in fit as jeans, I will bring you a survey of the very best cotton shirts that summer has to offer!  After all, it is the fabric of our lives!

Every gal needs an arsenal of tees and tanks she can count on – to hold up wash after wash, to implement for that ever-popular layering look, and to throw on for all those everyday moments in life.  Yep, they’re simple – but pair them with your favorite pair of blues and you’ll look instantly polished and all-American!  Added bonus: when cooler weather comes blowing in, a classic tee shirt is a sweater’s best friend.
