Pileggi Boutique has the goods for when you want to look put-together despite sweating profusely: versatile tank dresses ($96) and tank tops ($36) from the seamless apparel line Tees by Tina.

According to store manager Samantha Priar, the dresses and tanks meet shoppers' expectations of the quintessential summertime basic: both pieces are lightweight and comfy, good for layering, and easily tossed into a suitcase. And for those with a serious case of heat-induced apathy, the USA-made line is one-size-fits-most, so you don't even have to check the size before heading to Pileggi's register. Nota bene: We're told the pink ombre tank is especially popular this summer.
