When an item is so versatile, you can wear it alone or in combination with many other things in your wardrobe; it is considered 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 is old. Similar tote here. The earrings are from J.Jill. Links in these blog posts may generate a small commission for me at no extra cost to you.
The examples on the blog this week included the same long navy crepe tank dress worn in five different ways.
