As expected, our Chicago summer has been a mix of steamy, sunny days followed by a chilly, overcast one that barely sees 70 degrees. This inconsistent pattern of bizarre weather is nothing new for us, in fact, it just reminds us of how resilient we Chicagoans are when it comes to crummy weather.

Out of necessity, the art of layering has become second-nature to us Chicagoans, as you never really know what you are going to get within a week’s span. Added to this unpredictability is the fact that temps can swing by 10 degrees down by the lake, and no one – I repeat NO ONE (not even Tom Skilling) can predict the weather four days out.

I’m convinced we’ve missed our window of hot, sweaty weather this summer. Personally, I love the heat,  those 93+ temp days that make some miserable, make me swoon. Very rarely do we deal with summer heat, that when it comes, I welcome it with open, sweaty pitted-arms, knowing that in just a few short months, we’ll be suffering through another cruel Chicago winter.

But for gals like me that love tanks, this wardrobe staple has become a year-round wardrobe rotation. A team tank is an ideal way to show your team pride without having to dominate your entire look. Tanks can easily be worn under just about anything, from a office-friendly blazer, to your favorite fitted flannel, to that chunky, cable button-up sweater that gets you through the winter. Consider these your go-to undergarments for the colder weather ahead and take a tip from one of our last posts, Layering Like a Pro.

The Bears 2014 season is less than three weeks away (wa….what???!). Now is the time to invest in a few key tanks to work into the fall, before the best pieces are picked over at local retailers. I love this retro inspired one (above) from Clark Street Sports. The font is catchy and the simple colors (without any heather grey) works with jeans, white pants, and the fitted white blazer that you are scrambling to work into some kind of look before LDW.
