Whether you’re blessed with an innate sense of how to layer, or achieving a dynamic look requires a quick scan on Pinterest or your favorite fashion website (who, us?), there’s something deeply rewarding about coming up with an unexpected, interesting outfit. Case in point: today’s duo, a tank top over a shirt. Ladies near and far have been gallivanting around with slinky camisoles and slip dresses worn on top of knits, tees, and the ilk. Why do we love it? Not only does it extend the life of your warm-weather spaghetti straps, but it also opens up a world of combinations you may never have thought were possible.
