Best Bet: Proenza Schouler Tie-Dye T-Shirt

By

Regardless of the season or your personal feelings about the Grateful Dead, a hit of graphic psychedelia can do wonders for an outfit. And though the very idea of designer tie-dye might prompt some eye-rolling, notice Proenza Schouler's nice details: The perfect semi-sheer weight, the graceful cut of the sleeve, and the pattern of the dye itself (no obvious traces of rubber bands).  Wear the top over a bikini or under a peacoat for years to come.
