In the scorching August heat, sometimes the only way to not literally melt is to wear a tank top. But just because we’re dressing for the weather doesn’t mean we have to forgo style, right?
As you’ve all probably noticed, I’ve been loving the sporty chic, athleisure look a little too much (as seen here, here, and here), and my obsession with this style has only magnified in this unbearable heat because who doesn’t want to look chic and feel comfortable at the same time? 🙂
Tanks don’t have to be boring, and that’s exactly how I feel when I find one with a loud message. That’s why I’ve been loving this “Born in the 90’s” tank! I mean, of course, in a few years, I wouldn’t want to announce my birth year to the world, but as of now, since I’m still in my early 20s, I think it’s okay to share that little piece of information 😉
And if you can’t find a fun and quirky tank, don’t be afraid to borrow from the boys! That’s actually exactly what I did because this tank was found in the men’s department at H&M, but I loved the message so much that I just couldn’t leave without getting one for myself! 😀
Although I got the tank in size extra small, it still fits me almost like a mini t-shirt dress, but it’s still just a little too short to wear alone, so I opted for a pair of leggings underneath.
I know I could pair the tank with a pair of shorts for a summery look, but I really wanted to create a monochromatic ensemble to help elongate and streamline the figure, since the boy tank doesn’t really hug the curves at all, which can make the top half look a little boxy if worn otherwise.
Opting for a pair of black leggings with a few white stripes to embellish the leg, I’m able to break up an overload of monochrome to prevent myself from getting lost in a sea of black.
It also helps to tie a plaid shirt around the waist to emphasize a more feminine silhouette despite the boyish clothing items. An added bonus – it adds just the perfect little pop of color.
And of course, a sporty chic, athleisure ensemble isn’t complete without my favorite sneakers and cap to add just the right touch of boyish charm to the ensemble, right? 😉
