Happy 4th of July! It’s the birthday of America.
The navy tank dress from my site is the star of the show this week as I share how I make pieces in my wardrobe serve me well in any part of my lifestyle. Today, I am ready for a holiday cookout and fireworks.
Styling tips help me wear my basics to my advantage. Popping collars up, rolling or pushing up sleeves, half-tucking a blouse or tying it at just the right spot can make all the difference. Here, I’ve added a lightweight almost sheer white Portofino blouse from Express, sandals by Ralph Lauren from last year and a no-name little red bag I purchased in a gift shop. The sunglasses are by Balmain, and I found the very inexpensive silver and white earrings at Stein Mart.
I always stress the importance of proportion. If I tied the blouse at my natural waistline, I would have drawn attention to how big it is. I would rather leave the waistline a mystery. I tied the blouse so that the knot is at the smallest part of my torso, under the bust. The empire waistline I have created here is flattering on anyone who wants to draw attention away from the tummy area.
The prices of some of the items in the Sale section were reduced again yesterday. Don’t miss out! Those items are often one of one.
I hope you are enjoying this series. It continues tomorrow as I create an even more casual look using this same tank dress.
