Burnout Tees are Hot
You know warmer weather is on the horizon when t-shirt trends are out again. This season’s hottest tee is the burnout. These semi-sheer tees are light weight and comfy, yet add a distinct fashion dimension. Each tee oozes with sexiness (also known as Come Hitherness). We especially love the ones with a single pocket on the chest. Wear them with a pair of jeans or shorts, or layer them under a sport jacket or light long sleeve knit. The burnout is a great stand alone tee, but layers well becaue it’s so light.
The tee starts as a cotton and polyester blend, then is actually chemically burned. The acid eats away at the cotton making it more sheer, but leaves the man-made fibres intact. What’s left is an interesting texture reminiscent of your favourite, worn in tee.
John Varvatos has a great line up of burnouts:
