While we love wearing our maxi dresses and flowy sheer tops this summer season, one thing that will always be in style is the classic tee. Even our favorite basic top has gotten a makeover in the past few years and style details like longer hems, draping and generous necklines have made this tried and true style more flattering than ever! A white or grey tee a little too boring for your punchy summer wardrobe? Opt for a summer-trend ready tee in a bright color! And you don't have to spend much, either! Check out our picks of fave colorful tees that can hold their own against any maxi-dress, and all for $25 or less!
