Right now, we want a Transit Tee and more.
Time Out Chicago’s must-have items of the moment include Braced-lets, Pioneer washable headphones and more.
It doesn’t matter how often you clean your ears with Q-tips, chances are your headphones are disgusting. But these Pioneer washable headphones solve that problem because they’re, you guessed it, washable. These bad boys are perfect for the gym or sweaty runs along the lake. $60 at audiocubes.com.
This summer’s update on Silly Bandz is a whole lot sillier and nostalgic. Designed by Lulu Frost jewelry designer Lisa Salzer; her orthodontist sister, Jennifer; and her sister’s friend, Braced-lets are composed entirely of braces parts: metal brackets and colorful rubber bands just like we all wore as junior-high metalmouths. $5 at bracedlets.com.
We saw this Thread Map Chicago tee for sale while walking through a street fest a few weeks ago. The T-shirt is cool because it shows Chicago pride without being so blatant. And you gotta admit, the CTA map makes for a great graphic. $35 at transittee.com.
We’re all about the maxi dress trend, and Complex Geometries’ Fulcrum dress—a jersey cotton, asymmetrical version with a low-cut racerback and drapey pockets—steps it up an extra-stylish notch. $190 at complexgeometries.com.
