Best Bet: Sea NY Broken Lace Tee

From New York to Paris, the runways this season have been awash with lace in cutout panels, overlay dresses, and sheer blouses. Sea’s Broken Lace tee combines the feminine look of lace with the clean lines of color blocking. The cream overlay has an irregular cracked pattern — slightly less demure than the usual florals or swirls — and the stark pairing of black and white looks classically chic. It’s fully lined, so you don’t have to worry about layering over a tank, and the button closure lends a pretty keyhole effect.
