HIDE AND PEEK: “Distressed” is a major buzz word this season, with everything from jeans to jackets flashing fashionable rips and tears. Not that we’re complaining; who could argue with a low-maintenance trend that affords a little extra ventilation in the summer heat? And speaking of air conditioning, Metropark’s slashed and braided Raspberry Lace Up Tee would keep you pretty cool, indeed. In semi-sheer cotton/poly blend, it’s ripped in the rear, plain and pretty in the front. Just keep in mind that one slashed-up piece per outfit is sufficient, unless you’re dating Edward Scissorhands. GET IT: Raspberry Lace Up Back Tee, $39. Available online or at area Metropark stores.
