3 Ways To Style A Simple Tank

I mentioned in my last style post that I’m moving more towards building a capsule wardrobe, which means basics are a necessity. My friends Annie and Kaeleigh introduced me to Carly Jean Los Angeles earlier this year, and I’ve quickly become obsessed with their clothes. Their pieces are all made in Los Angeles, and this team of women know how to create styles that are classic and on trend at the same time. They also run great sales often, and I’ve been able to snag some great pieces at discounted prices!

I thought this particular top had so many different potential outfits, and I was able to style this tank 3 different ways with the same jeans and shoes, just changing up the accessories for different looks! I’m trying to simplify my wardrobe, and am realizing that accessories are going to be the easiest way to do this. You could also switch up any of these looks by tying the tank in a knot or tucking it in.  It’s called CJ’s Favorite Spaghetti Strap Top, and I can see why it’s her favorite! Here are 3 easy outfits featuring this tank, and all photo credits go to Shauna Dullanty Photography

Outfit 1: Jean Jacket

Of course this is my first outfit! I’m obviously obsessed with my jean jacket (as seen in this blog post), but I seriously love this outfit. I think it would also be cute with some black or fun printed shorts as we transition from spring to summer. Pairing it with the head scarf added a pop of color to the outfit, and tied in the blue from the denim jacket. I found mine at Target last year in the dollar section!

Outfit 2: Black Cardigan

This cardigan is also from Carly Jean, and creates a super simple, clean look with black jeans. Mine was on clearance, but I’ll link another cardigan I have my eye on from CJLA here. I wore this outfit wine tasting with my mom, and felt super classic. You could also pair this with a hat or long necklace to spice the outfit up, or add a fun colorful sandal.

Outfit 3: Tank and fun scrunchy

Last but not least, I love this tank all on its own! The cut is a little low, I probably could have sized down in the tank (I ordered a medium but it definitely runs a tad big), so I’m thinking about cutting the straps and tying them in bows to bring the neckline up a bit. I found this scrunchy at American Eagle last summer, and like the pop of color. The tank also looks cute with shorts!

I have loved creating these posts with staple pieces styled multiple ways, and will continue to share my favorite must have basics throughout the year. Is there anything you would like to see styled multiple ways? Let me know in the comments!
