Friday's Fancies: Hey Shorty, Get Tanked!

This past week, we were asked about our favorite summer staple wardrobe piece. Our first inclination was to go with a cute pair of wedges or a bright sundress, but it got us thinking...what is one singular piece of clothing that is in constant rotation in our summer ensembles?? And the answer was obvious. A simple white tank. There are endless ways to style it and with the right accessories it can go from casual to blinged out. Today's Friday's Fancies theme of "Short & Sweet" prompted us to think up four unique ways that you can take a plain white tank and pair it with your favorite shorts for any of your summertime outings. Hope you guys enjoy!

  14. I completely agree with a white tank being a summer wardrobe staple! And I think for such a simple piece (and timeless piece if we're being completely honest) it is important to invest in a really nice one, and avoid cheap ones that'll rip or tear quickly. Great post, and happy Friday! xo
