More often than not, girls must admit, they undermine the appeal of casual tops compared to sophisticated-style blouses. Who would have bargain a plain t-shirt, V-neck for instance, over a chic draping tunic perfect for parties, cocktails or dates? For sure, more than half of women would not.
Little do they know though, casual tops like plain tees, tank tops, cotton camisoles and the like, however naïve and unfashionable they may seem, are wardrobe essentials. They are sort of the building blocks of one’s ensembles. It is either that they make or break the look.
Moreover, casual tops, when worn with appropriate accents like accessories and jewelry, can even make a fashion statement like a real head-turner.
Plain Tee: Today’s Boyfriend’s Shirt
Nowadays, girls can easily play around wearing the so-called boring plain t-shirt or what fashion femmes just coined as boyfriend’s shirt. How to pull it off?
– Choose the best color that suits one’s personality. Go for the neutrals as possible.
– Pair it with skinny jeans or tight leggings.
– One can strut that along with pumps, wedge, sneakers or ballerina flats, depending on the occasion and function.
– Accessorize it with bangles, hoop earrings or long chain necklace with eccentric pendant, for instance Bangkok’s popular elephant, Paris’s iconic Eiffel Tower or whatever is on trend and even not like the classics. Big no-no? Never wear all at the same time. Fedora or paperboy’s hat can also be an alternative.
Tank Tops: Go as Far as Fashionable
With tank tops, girls can go sporty, sexy or super-chic – whatever they desire. It is just with the way they pair them up. Mix and match is the key.
Out for an outdoor hobby or recreation? Get sporty with racer-back tank top. A mini skirt or jazz pants will do the look, along with either girlie sneaks or comfy flats.
Time to party? Then try a black tank top with skimpy shorts, booties and heavy glam accessories like earring hoops, cocktail ring and a nice bling-bling.
Off to a fashion show event? Take it up a notch with another must-have among casual tops, the super-chic tank top. It can vary from details and accents that shall bring the passé top to life. Details such as laces, sequins, brooches, pinning or drapes could be the choices. Accents can mean colors so why not choose the safe and glam shades of black, ash gray, white, maroon, navy blue or nude.
Cotton Camisoles: Clothing’s Inner Aesthetics
Just like with beauty, at times it is the inner that counts. Highlight one’s wardrobe with just a simple cotton camisole which can be matched up with any of and at the following:
– smart-casual blazer for a client meeting
– biker’s jacket for a rock concert
– knit cardigan for a girls’ night-out
– denim bolero for a movie date
– suede vest for a trunk show
All these and a lot more are to expect, or should be more of unexpected, from the understated clothes admittedly women and girls opt to stock in the closets. Just remember, casual tops are like cells. Surely can’t imagine fashion without them.
