I Am Recessionista Loves Burnout Tees!

I am loving the burnout tee trend now, and so is everyone else. Celebrities are loving it, even my super athletic friend Sasha who is totally not into fashion is recently buying loads of these burnout tees for gym. You might already own a piece of this trend, but do you know why these semi-sheer tees are so comfy? Well, it's because of its 50/50 cotton/poly blend composition that is put through an extensive weathering process that includes burning the fabric.

Like every fashion trend, there is the high-end and the affordable for the burnout tees trend. I once saw a burnout tee on for over 300 bucks! The ones spotted on our favorite celebs are more affordable, but still between the $60 to $100 price range. As a Recessionista, I found several designs that I liked that are under $50!
