Well, it's officially hot as hell outside, which means that my normally well-thought-out wardrobe will turn into a predictable rotation of cut-off shorts and cotton tank tops very quickly. Unfortunately, those summertime staples are far too casual for my day-to-day events, so I've been in search of some elevated basics to help take my go-to look up a notch.
This tank from Club Monaco is exactly what I've been looking for: It's double layered so it's not sheer, but it's still ultra lightweight — an ideal quality for any garment worn during a steamy New York summer. Since it's silk, I could throw it on with a skirt or tailored shorts for work, but it's still laid back enough for a day at the beach. I love the delicate, thin straps and the racerback, which is sexy without showing too much skin. Plus, it comes in nearly every color you can think of, from neutrals like navy, black and white, to seasonal hues like mint and rhubarb.
I'll take one of each, please.
Brett silk tank, $98.50, available at Club Monaco.
