As it is now August, I’m starting my hunt for transition pieces. That means summer shapes that are going to carry me through until the time when I’m busting out my sweaters and packing away my shorts. I’ve really built up my tank top collection this summer, focusing on pieces that I can wear in a variety of settings and, hopefully, once school beings again. Earthy prints have been on my radar and I think I’ve found a great piece in the fluXuS Sundance Top in Ikat.
fluXuS is a celeb-fav brand with a California cool vibe and standout basics. The brand’s name was taken from the Latin “to flow”. fluXuS believes in artistic expression through personal fashion and that is definitely apparent! The Sundance Top is made of a soft-to-the-touch blend fabric and features a stunning ikat print in brown, tan, grey and blue (it’s hard to see from the photos, but it’s definitely there!).
Let’s start with daytime:
A tank top is a great base for a summertime outfit. I envisioned this outfit for a day out with your friends or your guy – enjoying the downtown or beachfront area of your city, taking in the local sights and sounds. Throw on a comfy pair of ripped jeans (tucking in the Sundance Top is optional!) and a casual pair of shoes in a bright color, like these ones from TOMS. A fringed shoulder bag adds to the beach bum vibe. If you’re going to be outside, a hat serves fashion and functional purposes by shielding you from harmful UV rays in a stylish way. Top it off with a neutral pashmina and a menswear-inspired watch for a funky look.
And now evening:
Since the print of this top is masculine, I wanted to try and create a very feminine outfit. This philosophy and method can be applied to all masculine pieces in your wardrobe, FYI.
And as a bonus, here’s my version of the nighttime look!
