Vintage Harley T-Shirt at Antique Sugar

Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: We can already hear the sorority sisters crying, "Wahh. It's getting haaawt. Time to squeeze into those tiny terry cloth shorts with 'CALL ME!' emblazoned on the booty, see-through tank tops, and Uggs. 'Cause warm weather means we don't have to bother getting dressed, amiryyyyte?"

Nope. Sorry. Wrong.

Look, there's a way to dress casually and not look like you just served as sloppy seconds after a beer pong tourney. Not every day is an Undie Run. Consider, if you will, a super-soft, lightweight vintage T-shirt — like Antique Sugar's vintage, carrot orange Harley-Davidson shirt.

Where: Antique Sugar's Etsy Shop

Cost: $85
