I have always loved a basic tank with embellishment. Last summer I found an awesome white tank with scattered gold paillettes around the scooped neckline and I’ve worn it countless times as a layering piece. So when I went ahuntin’ on the internet this weekend, the first one I came across was this Balmain chain detail tank.
While this is absolutely stunning and would look completely rocker-fabulous with a pair of skinny jeans, I have a really hard time suggesting anyone spend $2,635 on a tank top. Hey, even I have limits.
So I continued my search, determined to find a more budget friendly version. Alice + Olivia to the rescue.
Now, I’m under no illusions that these two tops are the same but the idea is to take the inspiration and convert it to what you can afford. This (again) rocker-chic tank ($195) by Alice + Olivia even has removable chains, so it can also be used as a true basic layering tank. Fashion meets function. Three cheers for double duty!
