Modest is Hottest: Tank Tops

I am a firm believer in less is more.  By less I don't mean less clothing.
I mean less revealing.  It is so hard these days to go shopping for clothing that is not super revealing!
Shorts have a 1 inch inseam, skirts are minis, and even dresses have wide open backs.
In my world, modest is hottest, simple is elegant, and classic is timeless.

So, I've accumulated a list of items that I have or want to add in my closet that would be hot, elegant, and timeless.  I've done my research and put together some pieces at different price points in case any of you are running into the same problem as me.

Today: Tank Tops
I live in North Carolina.  I'm from upstate New York.
To say it gets hot down here is an understatement.
Not just hot, but humid so sleeves are pretty much out of the question from May to September!
I am not a big fan of spaghetti straps or low necklines due to the nature of my job and sometimes its difficult finding tanks that aren't halters, spaghetti straps, or even see-through!

Luckily, I think tanks are making a big comeback this year so I've been able to find some great options.

modest is hottest: tank tops

1.  GAP: Love the splash of color in this tank.  I don't wear yellow well so this is a way I can incorporate it into my wardrobe.  Not to mention this is a great price.

2.  JCrew: I really like this tank despite its high price tag.  I love that it is versatile across seasons.  It would look great half tucked into a pair of shorts, tucked into a pencil skirt, or skimming over a pair of skinny jeans.  It's versatility makes up for the steep(er) price.

3.  Target: Of course I put Target on here.  It's affordable and on trend.  Not to mention, this tank is a breathable cotton perfect for the summer heat.

4.  Abercrombie & Fitch: I never shop here!  When I was searching the web for tanks, this one caught my eye and shockingly, it's from a store I haven't stepped foot into since high school.  I was pleasantly surprised that they have upped their game from graphic tees, hoodies, and torn up jeans.  This is another great piece that could be worn similar to the JCrew one and at a lower price point.

5.  ModCloth: I love ModCloth.  If you haven't ever shopped here, you must check it out.  Everything is very unique and mostly vintage inspired.  I especially love the peter pan collar and scalloped hem on this tank.  It is very feminine.

6.  Dorothy Perkins: I just discovered this store, but I have fallen in love.  I purchased a peplum top earlier this year and I absolutely love the trend so when I came across this lace one I knew it was going on the list.  Peplum hides my trouble area and lace is just gorgeous.  It is so classy and can easily be dressed up with pearls or down with denim.

Which is your favorite?

  7. I do not agree with you. I think the majority of people watching
    this movie are subscribers to TED, and the majority of them most likely effectively educated.
    Training is essential even to people to like Bill Gates.
    He is arguably no far more or no less talented than any other who graduated in his class, but that he is only the a single that received lucky within the
    'right spot, right time' feeling.. Training should serve to open doors to everybody.
    Not only a? pre-selected minority of our society. It should be equivalent.
