COTTON TOP OF THE WEEK #1
28 Palms Cotton Hawaiian Shirt (Source: Amazon.com)
Since its summer, we would recommend the 28 Palms Hawaiian tropical shirt which is 100% cotton. With its cotton material, it is a perfect material as it is lightweight and breathable, which is very important especially in hot weather. On top of that, the contrast of the palm tree and white background of the shirt makes it suitable for the outdoors. If you like summer and outdoors, this is the perfect shirt for you.
