Black Tank Dress + Gold Sandals

Good morning, and welcome back to 22 Days of Summer Fashion. Today I’m styling a black seamed tank dress with gold sandals.

This dress is from Everlane, a retailer known for their transparent, eco-conscious approach to fashion. I don’t usually go for the fit-and-flare silhouette, but this one has a polished look about it that suits my personal style.

It’s made of a smooth, luxe cotton that is sleek and lightweight and wears well all day long.

The straps are on the thinner side, but they hide my bra straps perfectly from all angles.

This dress also comes in moss green, a golden amber, and white; and it runs true to size. I have it in the small.

I often get asked about what bra I wear under certain tops, and I’m almost always wearing this Freya molded cup underwire bra. I have 3 or 4 of them that I rotate. The sizing is a bit weird; make sure you’re looking at the US size if you order one.

I kept the look pretty simple, with gold slides and a long gold pendant necklace. This was the day I forgot my bag of jewelry, and I’m so glad I threw this necklace over the hanger to go with this dress. It really needs something.

Normally, I would also wear earrings and a bracelet. I think a simple hoop would be nice with this, or a drop earring of some sort.

These are the Steve Madden Vivien gold leather sandals, and unfortunately they’re pretty much sold out. They’re very comfortable and look great with everything.

Another nice option would be these Sam Edelman thong sandals — I love the gold boa, or you could do the leopard or snake print with this dress.

I kept the look sleek and sophisticated with my black cat eye sunnies. If you like the look and not the price tag, I also found a similar style for less.

If I was wearing this out and about, I would bring along my Vince Camuto jean jacket in case it gets cold indoors.

I prefer the denim jacket to a cardigan with a dress like this because it has structure.

This outfit is so versatile, I’d wear it almost anywhere — to church on Sunday, to a Saturday morning brunch with the family or farmer’s market run, or to go shopping with friends.

It’s such an effortlessly chic way to stay cool and comfortable in the summer heat.
