festival season is nearly upon us and, let’s be honest, with its arrival comes an array of wardrobe-related questions we must answer. what can i wear that will look halfway stylish while i’m sweating my balls off under a hot desert sun? will i really be happy with my decision to wear a crop top after i’ve downed 4-6 beers? will there be any time left to see my favorite band if i make it my mission to place every chick in a fucking flower crown under citizen’s arrest?

we have found one of our favorite solutions to these age-old concerns to be cutting the sleeves off of our favorite concert shirt to turn it into a muscle tee. this method allows for comfortability, stylishness, and – perhaps most importantly – optimum armpit ventilation. we like to wear bralettes underneath for a little something that says “yes my outfit is functional, but i am still a girl”. they are also great under slip dresses and sheer tops. here are our favorites for spring ’14.
