The Prettiest Silk Tank

If you read lifestyle or style blogs that include outfit shoots, you’ve likely heard bloggers talk about how weird it is to post outfits in August-September and around March-April, when the seasons haven’t really transitioned depending on where you live. While I’ve done it before, wearing chunky sweaters and jeans in mid-September doesn’t feel the most seasonally appropriate–after all, we’re all trying to make our existing wardrobes work over the next few weeks before the bi-annual closet switchover!

I had a lovely weekend in Richmond (more on what we did to come) and it was in the 80s each day. The evenings cooled down a bit–making it perfect rooftop bar weather–so a well-balanced ensemble was key. We shot these photos before dinner + drinks on Saturday night, and I can already tell it’s going to be an outfit I wear on repeat year-round (subbing out the sandals for flats or booties and adding a sweater or blazer when it gets cooler). I firmly believe that basic silk tanks are one of the best pieces you can have in your closet because of their versatility, and a well-fitting one can easily become a reliable go-to for everything from work to date night. As much as I try to embrace more inventive and statement tops, I ultimately feel the most comfortable in something classic and easy that leaves room for some simple jewelry. It also makes getting dressed 80% easier because most of the time, the pieces in question can be easily dressed up or down.

While I have a couple similar tanks (another black one that’s actually a poly-blend, making it nice but definitely not as nice looking silk, as well as an unlined navy one–seen here), having a fully lined version (so the light colors aren’t sheer) that looks this pretty and fits this well means I’ll be stocking up on these in at least a couple colors over the next few months. It comes in six colors and is under $70…I’m wearing a size 4 and it fits perfectly, but would consider going up a size if you’re partial to a flowier look or want something that can be tucked in. The quality is really good–if talked about Everlane a lot before and am continually impressed by their quality and prices. It’s definitely a good place to start investing in silks if the cost is what typically turns you off!

  1. I truly love everything Everlane makes — one of my favorite retailers for sure! I love silk tanks, they are so easy to throw on under a blazer. I might need to pick up Everlane’s white one!
