Now that we have officially wrapped up our Spring Wardrobe Challenge, I’m excited to launch a series based on our Wardrobe Checklist. The idea goes like this, over the course of the next month, I’ll highlight a piece from the checklist to help you start to rebuild or expand your wardrobe.
Within each post I’ll note the functionality of the piece, if it’s season-specific or a year round staple, and include as many sizes as possible.
I’m prioritizing these based on price-point, inventory and level of need. Today, for example, is at a sale price too good to pass up, and will help you build outfits all year long.
Wardrobe Basics Building with The Layering Tank
Tank, $64.50 ON SALE $39.00
When the dust from all of this settles, one thing that will never be the same is retail. From their omni-channel experience to their dependency on foreign manufacturing, I think there will be sweeping changes to their landscape.
Right now, however, their sales are wild. At first, I didn’t want to take advantage of them, but then I realized it’s a fantastic opportunity to help you relaunch into the world too, so here we go.
A Layering Tank
A layering tank is a core wardrobe staple, and one you are likely missing. It will bring countless outfits together, but it has to be the right one.
This tank, from Banana Republic, is ideal. It sits under a cardigan, long sweater, or blazer. What’s important is the fit. The drape makes all the difference in how your outfit looks.
When a tank is too tight, or clings to your body, it takes the elegance away from the outfit.
With this tank, you can leave it out, half tuck or fully tuck it depending on the look you are going for.
Banana Republic does a great job with sizes. This is available in “regular” and petite, from an XXS – XXL. The XXS is equal to a 00 and the XXL fits a size 20.
Price: Originally $64.50, now 40% off, $38.70
Color: Options: Black and White
Sizes: Regular and Petite, from XXS (00) – XXL (20)
Functionality: Year-round wear, layer or stand alone. Casual or dress.
I have this tank and lots of other versions of this that I wear frequently,
