Hey y’all! Today’s ootd features two of my favorite things: stripes and tank tops! Actually, it’s a racerback top buy it still falls into the tank top category. It’s a casual day for me and it’s still pretty hot so I figured I’d throw on some ankle jeans and an easy breezy top.
If you live in Charleston, then you know how tanks are essential. More than essential, they’re mandatory! Even when the temperature says it’s 80 degrees out, the humidity kicks it up to 95! The last thing you want are perspiration stains on your top when you’re strolling down King Street. It’s never a good look. Even your strongest antiperspirant can’t withstand Charleston summers; so it’s very important to have climate appropriate gear.
My red and white horizontal striped racerback tank gives a very nautical (another thing I love!) and a bit of a patriotic vibe. It’s lose fitting, which is great, but not so much so that it appears tent like. It stays close to the body and lays nicely. I paired it with a really nice and light shade of blue ankle jeans. Both the top (similar) and jeans are from Forever 21.
