Muscle Mania: Avoid Sunburned Shoulders With These Cool Sleeveless Tees

Lucky magazine is one of our favorite sources for great shopping tips. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story from our friends at Lucky!

When temperatures hover around the 90-degree mark — as they did throughout this past weekend in NYC — the mere idea of wearing anything with a sleeve tends to elicit shudders and premature sweats. Therein lies the catch-22; during the sunniest months of the year, anything strappy or strapless leaves you at risk for painful, dangerous sunburns. Sure, you could slather yourself in SPF 50 — and reapply every several hours thereafter — or you could choose a shoulder-covering (but still completely sleeve-free!) muscle tee.

Commonly featuring ventilation-friendly dropped armholes and cut from the softest cotton, the muscle tee's been the shirt of choice for gym-goers and skater kids across the globe for decades — and now, largely thanks to Phillip Lim's sold-out-almost-everywhere Spring 2013 "I Heart Nueva York" sleeveless tees, they couldn't be more on trend.
