Of course in most of the Western world winter has arrived, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking of summer and what to wear on warm days to come.
Etsy shop Friendly Oak has a wide variety of steampunk printed tops, both sleeveless, short sleeved and long sleeved for both men and women.
Prints range from antique sailing ships, vintage keys, dapper octopi (great for the air kraken fan) and antique style drawing hot air balloons.

I own one of theirs and I just solve the problem that way (or by wearing it over a bikini top).

Cover of Modern Mechanics (August 1929)
“Ocean stepping-stones in the form of floating seadromes bid fair to cut down the hazards of trans-Atlantic flights.” Thus announced Modern Mechanics magazine in August 1929. It proposed the erection of floating landing fields at intervals of a thousand miles between America and Europe to make passenger flight across the Atlantic possible.
Indeed, the magazine listed three proposals, one of which it put on its cover. It resembled a huge floating lighthouse and would be “equipped with propellers and driving machinery to move it about as may be required.”
A second plan called for supporting floats extending fifty feet beneath the ocean’s surface, “a depth at which the motion of the largest waves is not felt.” Through a system of winches and drums for paying out and dragging in the cables, the airdrome was supposed to move with the wind so that pilots could always land in a breeze.
Another common sense proposal that was sadly never implemented…
