It’s possible to enjoy wearing a knited garment in the desert heat—just combine linen, lace, and a breathable gauge. The Arizona Tee is an oversized, versatile, lightweight summer top you can layer over a tank and shorts, a sundress, or a swimsuit. Its straightforward construction lets you focus on the lacework; after blocking the pieces, seam them together and bask in the sun.
