Yesterday I wore this black and white geometric sequin tank top under my cream and black trench coat, but I feel like it didn't really count since it was barely visible.
So I thought I'd give the tank another chance to shine and wore it again today! I copied Angie's formula from her blog post:
I tried it with both my black and white Anne Fontaine shirts underneath. (I had actually never thought to put button down shirts underneath tanks, before Claire and Angie suggested it yesterday). The front of the tank has sequins but the back is plain black. It blends in with the black shirt, but I actually liked the higher contrast with the white shirt and the more dramatic double collar. Then I put a black leather jacket on top and added trouser jeans (can't do faded jeans since I'm working today), red pumps and red bag. No jewelry since the sequins are enough.
If you asked me a year ago if I'd wear a sequin tank top to work I would have laughed. I always thought of sequins as something ice skaters, entertainers, or my mom would wear (she's definitely a magpie and dresses in a "flashy/diva/gala" style). Now look at what YLF has done to me! :) I am definitely pushing out of my fashion comfort zone for sure. But the funny thing is, even though this outfit is a stretch, it did feel very "me" when I wore it. What do you think? Comments and suggestions welcome and thanks for looking!
