Knit Tank: Three Ways
I am often intimidated by the idea of a knit tank. If done improperly, it hugs me in all the wrong places. For that reason, I always overlook said piece in whichever shop I am in, including our very own Cerer. Anna Lise was getting dressed one day, adorning the knit top and I was shocked when she told me the product she had on. You’re telling me our knit top is not the classically unflattering, slightly too long and thick tank I am used to?! Flabbergasted. I decided right then and there Anna Lise chose three ways to style the top because, come on, I cannot be alone in trepidation towards embracing this product. Needless to say, I am a knit tank top convert and am happily embracing this new identity.
I really believe the By Signe option we offer is unique amongst other knit tops. The flattering deep V and semi crop flatter the body without sacrificing comfort. Because of the crop, we had the freedom to pair it with a high waisted bottom. A form fitting skirt compliments the top’s cling to the body. To finish the look, we tossed a gold belt over to distinguish the top from bottom. If you don’t have a belt (thankful my mom kept this gem from her teenage years), a thin scarf would achieve the same effect.
In contrast to the first look, we wanted to go more playful here. One of the advantages of this top is its versatility and ability to build upon. Layering over a white t-shirt automatically relaxes the aesthetic, especially if you’re not feeling the deep V. I will certainly be pairing this over a waffle long sleeve come the colder months. The biker shorts can be interchangeable with denim, sweats, or even a mini skirt.
Party pants!! In need of a proper basic to pair with your statement pants? The knit top serves exactly that purpose. It’s just detailed enough that the top can stand on its own but also the ideal candidate to combine and balance with a more chaotic piece. The heeled sandal elevates this look for your next cocktail party (or more likely virtual happy hour).
