When an item is so versatile, you can wear it alone, or in combination with many other things in your wardrobe, it is considered a basic. Classic neutral basics can be combined with more showy items to create countless looks for every event in life. If too many of the pieces in your closet are colorful prints, you may have trouble putting together a look.
This week, I showed some examples of how I style a simple crepe tank style dress. Today, I am using the tank dress as a beach/pool cover-up. This is also my favorite look for the hottest days of the year. I wear a hat, sandals and a simple dress to allow airflow and to remain fresh looking even in the heat.
The sandals are from Aerosoles a couple of years ago. Similar sandals here. The hat is by Scala here. The tote bag was offered on my site last year. Similar tote here. The earrings are from J.Jill here. Links in these blog posts may generate a small commission for Susan After 60 Inc.
The examples on the blog this week included the same long navy crepe tank dress worn five different ways. The dress is on my shopping site here, and it comes in black or navy, short or long. The Florida based designer is busy making more of the dresses and pants for me. My current inventory is depleted now, so some of your orders will be shipped next week when the new shipment arrives. Thank you so much for shopping with me.
