Underoos, summer style...

Summerunderwear What goes under your blouse, skirt or dress is between you and your S.O. Except in the summer months.

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.

Want more tips? Check out this list of summer underwear essentials from our friends at the Budget Babe. What else would you add to the list?
