Whoever said “basic” was “boring” must not have been very interesting!
My personal style is hard to explain, I love dressing up, I love dressing down, I wear too many leggings for my own good, I enjoy taking a fashion risk once in a while, but for the most part, I keep my outfits *very* simple. I guess I’m “basic”…but I’m basic + proud! 🙂
I always say “it’s not what you wear, but how you wear it”. If you like to dress to the nines everyday, honestly…more power to you! But if you’re like me, skinny jeans and a solid top is usually the route I take. With that said, I like to spice up my simple looks! Taking a basic piece + turning it into something fab allows me the comfort I crave + the confidence I need to handle the day!
For today’s post, I wanted to focus on one of my favorite “basic” pieces…tanks!
I probably reach for beater tanks more so than any other top in my wardrobe. They’re comfortable, they’re flattering, you can wear them with a normal bra + keep your straps hidden, they’re perfect under a cardigan or hoodie, they come in every color under the sun, and they go with ALL kinds of bottoms!
What else do I love about beaters? They’re essentially a blank canvas, so styling + accessorizing them is SO easy + SO much fun!
Two of my must have accessories are statement necklaces + scarves; both pair perfectly with tanks! 🙂
A basic tank also makes room for some fun shoes!
And we allllll know that athleisure is basically taking over the fashion world, so pairing a tank with leggings is an easy way to nail that trend!
So where do I get my tanks?
The majority of them are from Target!
Their long + lean tanks are my absolute favorite. They retail for $9, which isn’t the worst, but keep an eye on their sales so you can stock up! They’ll last you for quite a while. 🙂
I have a closet full of simple pieces + I’ve got no shame in my basic game! Wear what makes you feel good, dress up, dress down, try something new. Don’t just put your clothes on…wear them! You can make any outfit fun, no matter how simple or “boring” it may be.
Remember, it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it! 😉
