It finally feels like summer in the city, and for the first time I've been able to wear 7 summer dresses in a row. However, a common problem that I encounter with summer dresses and skirts (especially white ones) is that the fabric they are constructed from is often incredibly sheer. Slips work, but nice slips are pretty expensive and cheap ones are totally see-through. pale-colored Cycle Shorts from American Apparel are perfect for solving my problem. They are incredibly comfortable, cost only $20, and are short enough for wearing underneath minis. Plus, I don't have to worry about pulling a Marilyn-Monroe-in-The-Seven-Year-Itch when I walk over a subway grate.
