Underoos, summer style...
Frothy whites, spaghetti straps and all manners of exposed arm: Who doesn't love warm weather clothes? But they can turn a no-brainer decision into a high-stakes game of roulette: Light or dark? Cotton or silk? Brief or thong?
I have a lovely lavender tank with a satin circle collar that I have not worn all spring. Why? My strapless bra plays a game of peak-a-book at the armpit every time I wear it. I've been too cheap to buy a new one.
I need to practice what Deal Diva Colleen preaches and invest in a bra. But until I get my next paycheck, I will have to make due with a checklist of summer underwear basics we should all have in our dressers.
- Two tidy whitey underroos, or the color most appropriate for your skin tone, to wear under white skirts or pants.
- One neutral bra. One neutral thong.
- One quality strapless bra.
- Spanx: An all-weather classic, absolutely critical w/ light fabric.
