I wanted to wear something that would be a little festive but also I wanted to be comfortable. I did not want to wear black since the party started early and it was going to be hot. I went through a few options and some seemed too dressy and some too casual but eventually I decided to wear this:
I am not sure were this tank is from since I got it as gift from my daughter couple of years ago but I think it was from Urban Outfitters. I like that it has some sparkle but it is not sequins. I also like that it is blue, not black because the muted shade tones it down even more.
I have to admit that the key to wearing this type of top is finding a right strapless bra. Most strapless bras are push ups and I hate them, but I love this unlined bra from Soma. It stays in place has no weird gaping in front, does not squish my girls into an 'uni-boob', does not sit too low and has a very natural look under tanks.
I think the racer back is what ultimately makes this top party appropriate. Of course it is also great in the very hot weather we have been having recently.
I brought my denim jacket, just in case it would get a little colder at night but it was never necessary. I was happy with my outfit, it was perfect for the occasion and I was very comfortable.
That's all folks!
What is your ultimate summer party attire when you don't want to be over or under-dressed? Do you even have that dilemma?
Do you have a favorite strapless bra?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
